For those wishing a mild steroid cycle, perhaps the best performance-enhancing drug to combine with Primobolan is not another anabolic steroid directly, but HCG at doses totalling approximately 1500 IU/week. This may be taken as, for example, 200 IU daily, 400 IU every other day, or 500 IU three times per week. This typically yields high-normal testosterone levels and maintains normal estrogen levels, aiding the effectiveness of Primobolan with relatively little added androgenic side effects. Such usage may be counted as comparable to injecting 100 mg/week testosterone, and so for example 500 mg/week Primobolan use combined with this amount of HCG may be considered comparable to 600 mg/week total usage of anabolic steroids .
With that said, some women do experience side effects when they simply go off steroids after a long cycle. This is because Anavar is, in fact, a hormone, and any kind of hormone fluctuation in the female body can lead to unwanted effects. These may include things like hot flashes or mood swings – things women may experience during menopause as their hormones begin to decrease. Fortunately, even though PCT isn’t necessary, it is possible to avoid most of these side effects with a tapering dose at the end of the cycle. The chart below shows an example of a tapering 10-week cycle.
All anabolic steroids suppress natural testosterone production. However, the rate of suppression often varies greatly from one steroid to the next. Although it does suppress natural testosterone production, Primobolan’s rate of suppression is much less dramatic than many anabolic steroids. In a therapeutic plan, it is actually possible to keep the total rate of suppression below 50%. This could be low enough to keep some from falling into a low level condition despite the reduction. However, performance level doses will be another story. Dramatic suppression is all but assured with such doses making the inclusion of exogenous testosterone extremely important. Men who do not include exogenous testosterone will more than likely fall into a low testosterone condition. Not only does this carry numerous possible bothersome symptoms, it is extremely unhealthy. Women, despite needing testosterone will not have a need for exogenous therapy when using Primobolan.
Once the use of Primo and all anabolic steroids has come to an end, natural testosterone production will begin again. You will find this is one of the easiest steroids to recover from when it comes to testosterone production. Most men are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan once use is discontinued. This will speed the recovery process up. It will, however, not return you to normal on its own. This will still take time. However, a PCT plan will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise. Those who do not implement a PCT plan, while they may recover it will take far longer. There’s really no reason to forgo the PCT process if you’re going to be off cycle for any decent length of time.
An important note on natural testosterone recovery. Natural recovery assumes no prior low testosterone condition existed. It also assumes severe damage was not done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) through improper steroidal supplementation practices.
