Anavar Nolvadex Cycle – 5 MUST-READ Tips For Your PCT

Written by admin


It is usual to see many body builders doing a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) after taking any anabolic steroid. A PCT is important to cleanse your body and helps in recovery. The reason for PCT is to reestablish the testosterone levels that would take a year if you do not have PCT. A PCT helps to create luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone which help the testicles to start producing more testosterone.

Though Anavar is a mild anabolic steroid, if it is taken for more than 3 weeks, the testosterone production stops. Hence, a PCT Anavar and Nolvadex cycle is important just like with others. Like discussed in many body building forums, some may notice a change in your libido and size of testes, which means a PCT is required. Many even say that a PCT is not required with Anavar.

6th week – 120 mg per day

What is Nolvadex?

After a cycle with any anabolic steroid, the estrogen levels usually go up and hence a PCT is required. If the estrogen levels are not controlled, it may lead to many health issues like cardiovascular problems, prostate diseases etc. Nolvadex is a regulator that helps to control the estrogen levels and avoids any side effects of it in the body. With the use of Nolvadex, it stops the function of aromatizing enzymes which release estrogen and on the same line it does not interfere with luteinizing hormone which is responsible for testosterone production. Hence, you will not only see the natural testosterone coming back , it will also keep away the shrinking of testes.

Here’s how to start a Nolvadex PCT:

An ideal dosage of Nolvadex after a mild steroid would be:

1st week – 20mg per day

2nd Week – 20mg per day

3rd week – 10mg per day

4th week – 10mg per day

After using strong steroids, the dosage of Nolvadex should be:

1st Week – 30mg per day

2nd Week – 20mg per day

3rd week – 10mg per day

4th Week – 10mg per day

NOTE: A PCT is not required if you have just taken Anavar for 7-10 days because at this point your body is still producing testosterone naturally.

A PCT should not be done if you are looking to start another Anavar cycle within 12 weeks. In case you do this, there would be fluctuations in your body with regards to testosterone production and this might be very hard on your body.

Side Effects of Nolvadex:

  • Headaches
  • Cramps in legs

  • Hair thinning
  • Tingling in skin
  • Loss of sex drive/erectile dysfunction
