Triptorelin: The “One-Shot” PCT

Triptorelin is a peptide hormone that acts as an analog of GnRH (Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone). GnRH is a naturally occurring hormone produced in the hypothalamus which triggers the production of LH (Luteinizing Hormone) and FSH (Follicle-Stimulating Hormone), which stimulate Testosterone production and spermatogenesis, respectively. The way Triptorelin works is really simple: It replaces our naturally occurring […]Read More

HCG vs HMG to restore fertility after years of AAS use

When it comes to preserving testicular function, testicular size and fertility during a cycle (or during TRT), HCG is always the first peptide hormone to be suggested.

Firstly, […]Read More

Bloodwork – A closer look at HPTA results

The Hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, or HPTA, is probably the most important parameters a person should look for after a cycle, as it takes the heaviest toll after any steroid usage. Many different strategies and approaches can be taken to make sure your HPTA bounces back to normal when you’re off gear, but the most assertive and […]Read More

Bloodwork – What to look for

  If you’re willing to start a cycle, the best advice in theory is to look for a doctor to help you with it. Sounds easy, but in practice not many doctors are willing to aid in the task of making sure you do the least damage to your body while using PEDs. If you’re […]Read More
