Post-cycle therapy – what is it for and what drugs to use?
Post-cycle therapy drugs are a group of medications that taken to normalize the functioning of the body, and mainly the endocrine system, after a course of androgenic-anabolic steroids. They are very important, since large doses and the constant use of anabolic steroids can cause side effects that are extremely undesirable for an athlete. You need to order post-cycle therapy drugs in advance in order to be able to start taking them from the last days of the AAS course.
Post-course Treatment Tasks
Often you can hear the opinion that if the course of steroids was the first, and the drugs were not heavy, then PCT can abandoned. However, this opinion is erroneous. Post-cycle therapy is necessary in any case, because it allows not only to prevent the negative effects of anabolics on the body, but also to minimize the rollback phenomenon.
Rollback is the problem of all athletes, because after the end of the course, there is often a loss of muscle mass gained during it. Properly selected PCT minimizes this phenomenon, fixing the effect of steroids.
However still, its main task is to restore hormonal balance. All anabolics are an artificial analogue of testosterone. Nevertheless, in nature, it produced in the body of a man in the arch of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes. When taking steroids, its production suppressed, which leads to testicular atrophy. The effect of post-cycle therapy drugs is to normalize the secretion of natural testosterone.
PCT avoids the occurrence of side effects, one of which is the development of secondary sexual characteristics (gynecomastia in men, virilization in women). These medications also prevent reproductive system disorders and consolidate the result that achieved on the course.
The most popular post-cycle therapy
Depending on their properties and effectiveness, the medicines used for PCT divided into several groups:
- Estrogen receptor blockers – prevent the influence of estrogen on the athlete's body, blocking receptors sensitive to them (Tamoxifen, Toremifene, Clomid);
- Aromatase inhibitors – also aimed at preventing the negative effects of estrogen, but act in a completely different way. Unlike the first group, they affect enzymes, thus slowing down the synthesis of estrogens (Anavar, Letrozole, Anastrozole);
- Antiprogestogens – reduce the concentration of progestogens that inhibit libido (bromocriptine – now practically not used, cabergoline). They are necessary only after a course that includes Nandrolone, Trenbolone or Oxamethalone;
- Gonadotropin – avoids testicular atrophy, normalizing the natural production of testosterone. It used exclusively during the course.
In addition, testosterone boosters and growth hormone can used to recover from steroids.
The price of post-cycle therapy drugs may vary depending on the manufacturer and membership in a particular group.
Positive Impact of PCT
To summarize, we can say that PCT medicines allow you to:
- Restore hormonal balance – affect the secretion of natural hormones;
- Avoid testicular atrophy – support the production of testosterone (gonadotropin);
- To avoid the manifestation of gynecomastia – for this, drugs from the first two groups used;
- Restore libido – the main task of antiprogestogens.
