It was once commonly used during PCT in the belief it will aid testosterone restoration, however this is flawed due to its mechanism of action. The drug mimics the effects of LH in the body, stimulating the Leydig cells to produce testosterone in the testes . This can be fruitful in rectify existing, or avoiding testicular atrophy on cycle. It will not aid the process of recovery in the post cycle phase however, as the drug will bring about heightened oestrogen levels due to the greater aromatising of the testosterone being produced in the testes , thus bringing about greater inhibition of the HPTA .
Because this steroid is very mild, users, especially men, need to take it in larger doses in order to realize maximum benefits. The minimum dosage for men is 50mg per day. Most bodybuilders in the United Kingdom usually take 100mg per day. Women, on the other hand, need to take lower doses, as they tend to be sensitive to anabolic steroids. While the steroid is quite mild, taking lower doses ensures that no unpleasant side effects will occur. The best thing about this steroid is that, unlike other steroids out there, it can be used for a long period of time without any issues. Nonetheless, it’s typically used for around six to eight weeks. Although it doesn’t matter when Anavar is used, it’s recommended to use the steroid near or at the end of your cycle if your goal is to achieve and maintain a lean figure. Taking the drug when you’re already lean will allow you to reap much better benefits.
