I'm 25 years old male, 215lbs.
Did my first ever cycle of ostarine and cardarine for 5 weeks back in October didn't do any pct untill late November. Then I started taking RC nolvadex. 20/20/10/10.
Just finished up my last dose yesterday on Christmas day lol.
My question is how do I know if I'm recovered, or how do I know if the nolvadex did the trick?
The reason I ask because if it is bunk or under dosed I wouldn't know because I am new and don't know what to expect...

What should I look for? My nuts don't seem as big as before still but then again I never really took notice before they started shrinking. Maybe I just imagine they were bigger than they really are and I Blame it on the cycle 😂..

Anyways if anyone could fill me in thatd be great. I'm still really depressed and emotional but then again I'm under a Lot of stress and so it would be understandable for anyone to be depressed. But then I start to think if it's all just in my head.

Lastly do I have to do anything after pct? I've seen it mentioned a few times about taking low dose of AI's to prevent rebound??? If this is true please explain thanks!!!

You would just have to by the feel after PCT if your not doing blood work pre/after really is the best way to tell.

Hopefully nolva was legit .. I would jump on natural booster/muscle builder for 8-12 weeks ..prolly can get you same/better gains then osta/cardarine hopefully.

What natural muscle booster would you recommend? Do you mean like a test booster? I thought those hurt your natural testosterone??

I would go with this. ^^

I'd also get bloodwork done if I can.

Most people who hate test boosters are usally who take roids and try o compare .. which is unfair .. plenty of research done on those ingredients .. but whose to say if one thing works for one person and not the other.

Pick up some cialis from your source for a quick fix.

... Also if you're taking other meds (such as psych meds), be careful what you take. Some things will interact.

Yeah I want to get blood work soon. Should I wait a little after my pct since I took the last dose yesterday? If so how long should I wait untill I get bloods?

I take Stimulant ADHD meds.. it's like Adderall/Ritalin. Pretty high dose.
Yeah be careful mixing them with almost anything .. best to consult physician ofcourse.

Ive never been on ADHD meds but hear can take a toll of your emotions too.

Yeah i have shitty cardio. My recovery between sets are terrible. I usually just workout without letting my heart rate come down because my muscles will get cool before my pulse slows down enough lol.
Building muscle and strength just dosnt happen. My dopamine is fucked now. Cortisol running rampid... Which is why I tried PEDS. For the first time I felt normal. I saw improvements. I saw results. I am convinced those damn meds have fucked me up. I have tried to get off of them and it brought me to my knees for 2 years. I just accepted defeat. But now I guess I'm probably going down another rabbit hole with PEDS. I'm pissed I lost all the gains. But I feel like if I do my next cycle correctly I can keep the gains and then cash out my chips and stay Natty. But that's IF I even do recover.. maybe my meds already put a strain on my endocrine system as it is. Something I don't think any doctor will ever give me a genuine answer to. They are glorified car salesman.

Dude you did 5 weeks of osta you are fine. Your mental issues have nothing to do with that. You would barely be suppressed if it all on just 5 weeks of osta. 90percent of real life people don't even PCT and feel no major difference other than losing rapid water. The PCT meds are what cause most of side effects if anything.

Although you have to wonder if it was mixed with something stronger. Which for how much i changed in such a short time. I almost think maybe it was. I changed so much. Felt like a god lol. Then I again I am new. So maybe for me it was awesome lol. Yet other people say it's weak. But I just wonder if my osta was spiked with something else or if maybe I was sensitive to it. I guess ya just never know. Unfortunately I didn't take bloods because I was unaware at the time. Mislead by shitty articles. So I'll never know hormonally whats going on.

But what I DO know is. While on cycle. Sex almost disgusted me. I didn't try or want it.. I almost broke up with my girlfriend because I viewed it as a waste of time. I felt like Mr King dickhead. Yet I loved the alpha feeling. I could not get sore at the gym even though I was pushing new limits. I even took my morning shits with perfect form. I was a MACHINE. my nuts shrank. And my nipples were on FIRE for about 75% of my cycle...
My point is things changed ALOT on osta. things that everyone said wouldn't happen. So either I'm sensitive or the **** was more then just ostarine. Either way the symptoms are there. Shouldn't matter what sarm it was. Because no one truly knows whats behind the label...

Although yes since my pct. life has been very miserable. I lost muscle. Gained fat. Crying alot and all of my problems seem so Impossible. Which I think they are valid problems. But I'm sure if I was on cycle I would have found away to conquer them. (That's the mental part I struggle with. Procrastinating lol) So I do agree to some extent the mental aspect is part of it. But I am trying to figure out just how much is really mental. As of now I push through to at least maintain myself.

This does not sound like osta at all. Did you mention what who's osta it was?

Anyway, this sound lika drol. Or dbol maybe. Definetly not an DHT.

True, some people notice gyno symptoms on osta but it's also questionable if they also had legit osta...

Either way, your emotional state will get better. Trust me. It takes time to feel normal again after a cycle.

Regarding pct. Pct is there to speed up recovery. Mostly, people bounce back just fine without pct, but the process takes longer and you loose more gains. A 5 week cycle is not a lot of time to be suppressed and it's easier to bounce back without pct. Doing it one month after the cessation of taking aas was probably redundant. But still okay, why not...

You'll be fine. Chill.

Vitamin D3 and a good fish oil/cod liver oil. A lot of people experience more stress and depression symptoms because of it being winter, and the lack of broad spectrum UV rays. Dose in the morning. Eat a good amount of animal fats, including butter. You will feel right as rain. As far as supplementationg goes, Vector by BLR is a good natural anabolic, and a combo of Rebirth and Viron will boost your total and free test! KSM 66 is a good addition that will aid total test a little bit, and reduce cortisol.

You wont be 100% back to normal right after PCT. Pct is just like a little jump start.
