    Hypothetical: Protocol for stopping TRT

    Just exploring all options.

    Been doing 100mg Cypionate every week for a year. If I want to stop and let my body have a full reboot, maybe to gauge natural baseline levels, what is the recommended way to do this? I have stopped cold turkey in the past and it isn't pleasant.

    fyi, I have HCG and can get a rx for Clomid.

    They suggest 350iu HCG every day for the first 15 days. But in the below link Nelson suggests 2,500iu once every other day. That's a HUGE and unsettling difference.

    Let's say I was going to stop the testosterone and not use any serm. Is there a benefit to still using HCG for a while, and if so how much would you suggest and for how long? I know you're not a doctor, would just like your thoughts based on experience.

    If HCG was part of protocol, like me 500iu every 3 1/2 days and my testicles feel full. I personally don't believe you need HCG to start your restart, but if you were not using HCG and your testicles shrink. I believe you would HCG to start the restart protocol. Like you said I'm not a doctor.

    The role of HCG for a legitimate restart is simply to fill the 2 week "washout period" while you're waiting for the T cyp (or other ester) to be mostly removed from the body. The HCG during this period allows a kickstart to the testes so that they are then primed and ready to respond to the REAL top-down (hypothal-pituitary-testes) restart, which is the SERM.

    In other words, the SERM is actually the key component of the restart.
