What is a PCT – Post Cycle Therapy ?
A PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) is a term used to talk about the period of time after a cycle of prohormone. In that period of time (PCT), users of prohormone need to take a SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) to boost their natural production of testosterone while also controlling the excess of estrogen level.
In some case, a SERM is not necessary to do a PCT (Click here to read the OTC PCT page)
More informations about the importance of doing a PCT – Post Cycle Therapy
The post cycle therapy has big importance for everyone who’s doing a cycle of prohormone. In fact, if you planned to not do a PCT or simply if you know nothing about it : a cycle of prohormone would be a lost for you. To demonstrate the importance of doing a PCT, I will explain to you what happens at your body during and after a cycle of prohormone :
When someone is taking a prohormone, his natural production of testosterone is stopped. As the testosterone level is going very high in a cycle (due to the prohormone), the body want to balance this by increasing also the level of estrogen (You can limited this reaction by taking an Anti-Estrogen). When you stops your cycle of prohormone, your testosterone level is back to zero and your body works now with your natural production of testosterone. But during the time your natural production is back to normal, you have still a high level of estrogen in your body.
This excess of estrogen level combined to a low level of testosterone in your body can cause you many health problems : libido issues, lost of all your muscle gains, more in depth health problems.
This is why a PCT – Post Cycle Therapy is considered like one of the most important stage of a cycle of prohormone. Therefore, a PCT is necessary and obligatory for every cycle of prohormones.
