When you look up PCT online, you will find some pretty complicated cycles out there. PCT will always consist of a SERM, or selective estrogen receptor modulator, which works to improve the levels of LH and FSH mentioned above. Many athletes will also incorporate HGH or hCG into their PCT, but if you ran an Anavar-only cycle without any other steroids, these compounds are not necessary. For the most part, all you need is three to four weeks of Clomid or Nolvadex at the recommended therapeutic doses for your Anavar PCT, and you should start your PCT three days after your last dose of Anavar.
In some cases, bodybuilders and athletes may choose to use Winstrol for a short time without using any other compounds. This can increase the risk of some side effects while decreasing the risk of others. For example, failing to use testosterone alongside your Winstrol may lead to some unwanted side effects associated with low testosterone, such as fatigue or a lowered libido. However, if you choose to forego testosterone, there’s no need to add an AI to your stack, which can make things simpler and save you money. You should be sure to weigh the benefits of using a Winstrol cycle with stacks and the risks of running a Winstrol-only cycle before you make a decision.
