Post Cycle Therapy

This section relates to the post cycle therapy needs of a user who has performed either a standalone thyroid hormone cycle (via isolated T3 or T4 use) or a cycle containing anabolic steroids.

We’ll first assess the post cycle needs of those who use either the T3 or T4 hormone in isolation before outlining the PCT needs of those who combine them with anabolic steroids.

T3 Cytomel

Post Cycle Therapy Following Isolated T4 Use

Luckily, the post cycle needs of those using thyroid hormones only are rather simple in nature.

All you’ll need to do following an isolated T4 cycle is implement the product at a dose of 25 mcg per day for 7 – 10 days (immediately following your last “proper” dose) to ensure that the thyroid gland is able to “adapt” to a lack of exogenous hormone in the system and start producing its own thyroxine again in an optimal fashion.

This would simply involve adhering to the following guidelines:

DayT4
125 mcg per day
225 mcg per day
325 mcg per day
425 mcg per day
525 mcg per day
625 mcg per day
725 mcg per day
825 mcg per day
925 mcg per day
1025 mcg per day
DayT3
125 mcg per day
225 mcg per day
325 mcg per day
425 mcg per day
525 mcg per day
625 mcg per day
725 mcg per day
825 mcg per day
925 mcg per day
1025 mcg per day

Post Cycle Therapy Following Isolated T3 Use

These guidelines are exactly the same as those followed following a T3 cycle and simply involve administering it over the course of 10 days at a dose of 25 mcg per day for thyroid “acclimatisation” purposes.

For effective thyroid adaptation following T3 use – simply administer the product as follows immediately following your last “proper” administration of it:

Post Cycle Therapy Following A T4 / T3 Cutting Cycle

This is where things get a little more complicated. In conjunction with the necessary adaptation of the thyroid gland following T4 / T3 use, you’ll also need to give the body a helping hand so that it can naturally optimise its production of testosterone again.

This is due to the fact that all anabolic steroids diminish the body’s organic output of testosterone (some more harshly than others) over the course of a cycle as it comes to depend on an exogenous source as opposed to “needing” to supply its own.

When you’ve finished your cycle, you’ll need to integrate either nolvadex or clomid in conjunction with a “base” dose of T4 / T3.

A Quick Note On When To Start PCT

In regards to your T4 or T3 specific PCT integration (the 10 day mini cycle necessary for thyroid adaptation) this can actually begin the moment you finish your cycle.

However, the integration of nolvadex, clomid or (as we’ll soon discuss) HCG must begin:

  • 3-4 days after the last administration of a “short” acting compound or ester (as per all of the product types listed above)
  • 14 – 21 days after the last administration of a “long” acting compound or ester (of which there are none featured in the above cycles

As well, please note that if you plan to use HCG – you will need to start your HCG cycle in accordance with the above guidelines and finish it in FULL before you then implement nolvadex or clomid according to our upcoming outline.

It’s also worth noting that your T3 or T4 10 day phase would again start immediately after the last administration of either respective thyroid hormone. You should view this element as a completely separate entity rather than being part of the steroid PCT plan.

They’re both necessary, but they need to start at different intervals in order to achieve the desired PCT effects for each respective substance.

When using T3 / T4 as part of an anabolic steroid, & opting to use nolvadex for PCT purposes administer both products as follows after a MILD cycle:

WeekNolvadex (3 - 4 days after
your last steroid administration.)
DayT4 / T3 (Immediately post cycle.)
120 mg per day1 - 325 mcg per day
220 mg per day4 - 625 mcg per day
310 mg per day7 - 825 mcg per day
410 mg per day9 - 1025 mcg per day

For those who need to integrate PCT with the above items following a STRONG cycle:

WeekNolvadex (3 - 4 days after
your last steroid administration.)
DayT4 / T3 (Immediately post cycle.)
130 mg per day1 - 325 mcg per day
220 mg per day4 - 625 mcg per day
310 mg per day7 - 825 mcg per day
410 mg per day9 - 1025 mcg per day

For Those Using Clomid

If you’re using clomid for PCT purposes, you’ll need to integrate it as follows (in conjunction with your base T4 dose) after a MILD steroid cycle:

WeekClomid (3 - 4 days after your last steroid administration.)DayT4 / T3 (Immediately post cycle.)
150 mg per day1 - 325 mcg per day
250 mg per day4 - 625 mcg per day
325 mg per day7 - 825 mcg per day
425 mg per day9 - 1025 mcg per day

And after following a STRONG cycle, you’ll need to implement these items as follows:

WeekClomid (3 - 4 days after your last steroid administration.)DayT4 / T3 (Immediately post cycle.)
175 mg per day1 - 325 mcg per day
250 mg per day4 - 625 mcg per day
350 mg per day7 - 825 mcg per day
425 mg per day9 - 1025 mcg per day

For Those Using HCG / Pregnyl

Some people like to use HCG for a “pre” post cycle phase as it can provide an additional countermeasure against natural hormone synthesis lowering.

As previously outlined – your HCG phase will need to be completed in full before you then begin either your clomid or nolvadex use. HCG should be administered according the same guidelines in regards to usage window too (either 3-4 days after your last steroid use or 14-21 days depending on the ester type.)

Please also note that your T4 / T3 usage will begin immediately after your last “Proper” use of either product and either 3 – 4 days or 14 – 21 days prior to your introduction of HCG (as would be the case if you were moving straight onto nolvadex or clomid post cycle.)

To integrate HCG effectively you may select from either one of the two following options (please bear in mind that we’re also going to lay out the respective T3 / T4 dose too so as to make the process as clear as possible.)

When Integrating HCG Over A 3-4 Week Period

WeekHCG (3 - 4 days after your last steroid administration.)DayT4 / T3 (Immediately post cycle.)
13,500 I.U every 3 - 4 days1 - 325 mcg per day
22,500 I.U every 3 - 4 days4 - 725 mcg per day
31,500 I.U every 3 - 4 days8 - 1025 mcg per day

When Integrating HCG Over A 10 Day Continuous Period

You’ll need to administer your HCG and T3 / T4 as follows when integrating a 10 day HCG “pre” PCT plan:

DayHCG (3-4 days post last steroid use)T4 / T3 (Immediately post cycle)
1N/A25 mcg per day
2N/A25 mcg per day
3N/A25 mcg per day
4N/A25 mcg per day
51,000 I.U per day25 mcg per day
61,000 I.U per day25 mcg per day
71,000 I.U per day25 mcg per day
8750 I.U per day25 mcg per day
9750 I.U per day25 mcg per day
10750 I.U per day25 mcg per day
11500 I.U per dayN/A
12500 I.U per dayN/A
13500 I.U per dayN/A
14500 I.U per dayN/A

Immediately following the integration of either HCG phase, you must then immediately move onto either your clomid or nolvadex PCT cycle.

Please note that the T3 / T4 integration mentioned as part of the HCG cycles would mean that you no longer needed to administer a 25 mcg daily dose during your nolvadex / clomid phase under these circumstances. – “Acclimatisation” would already have taken place during the HCG usage window.
