I've been reading on here for a while now, and have learnt a lot. I'm not an expert in the area of Anabolics at all, so unfortunately haven't been able to contribute.
I've been searching the net for a while now to determine what levels of T supplementation you can "generally" get away with, without needing PCT. I know this question may be a bit broad, but there is a reason I ask.
I don't want to take any injectables or PH's at high levels, so thought just for general maintenance I'd administer a testosterone cream. My logic is that if my T levels are already reasonable high (around 500-600) then admin of a standard dose might assist with some gains.
I ordered this from a reputable company, and it came complete with a detailed leaflet on HRP etc (I'm not intending to do HRP long term here) and it came with some good documentation about TRT/HRT and the benefits of T in general.
I'm 34, 5'10 and have a reasonable amount of muscle already, but just want to beef my T levels up a bit more to try and reduce my BF levels (I'm prolly around 13%) . Despite very good eating, I still tend to hold a little bit of fat on my lower back/waist area.
The that came with the cream documentation lists the standard possible side effects of testosterone use but says that this preparation doesn't typically cause the side effects stated - but research I have on the net sort of suggests it is.
The dosage is 5% 50mg of cream applied daily (yep I appreciate its bugger all)
At this level, is PCT really necessary? Would I need other supplementation during as well? I'd probably look at applying for 6-8 weeks.
