What is Triptorelin?
Triptorelin – GnRH (Gonadotropin-releasing hormone) is being used during PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) for users recovery or restart their normal testosterone production. GnRH has been used for a long time by horse breeders as a way to stimulate the anterior pituitary to release follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). With this stimulation, the horses became more fertile, and breeding would commence.
FSH is one of the two main hormones responsible for sexual reproduction regulations (along with LH). FSH plays the main role in stimulating the production and maturation of germ cells (which either become sperm in males, or eggs in females). This mean, when your pituitary is stimulated to produce FSH (as a reaction from GnRH), FSH will begin to stimulate the production of sperm in men. GnRH pulses in our bodies, and that pulse controls when we produce FSH.
GnRH is a chemical that is sent from our brain to the pituitary to tell it to produce both FSH and LH. When a small pulse dose of GnRH is injected, your pituitary receives that signal to start producing. This will result in both an increase in testosterone serum (as a result from the LH stimulation) and an increase in sperm (or egg in a female case) count. The result may be an effective jumpstart to our reproductive system for steroid users.
How much Triptorelin should be used?
THE DOSING OF TRIPTORELIN IS VERY IMPORTANT! We can stress this enough. Triptorelin makes a great jumpstart, because unlike HCG, it stimulates both LH and FSH to a higher extent and has a much more lasting effect. But much like HCG, DHT, HMB, ect, we need to be very careful with our pituitary and avoid hyper-stimulation. We need to pulse it once, at a small dose, simulating the pulse that is normally sent from our brain, and then let our bodies do the rest of the work.
1 single 100mcg dose per cycle, after all esters have cleared the body.
Triptorelin is so powerful that large doses around 4mg (4,000mcg), repeated once a month, is being used as a chemical form of castration. This dose is so intense on the pituitary, that it hyper-stimulates, resulting in castration-like levels of testosterone serum in the body. Much like HCG, dosing is delicate, and too much is not a good thing. We need to use Triptorelin as a restart, one-and-done, and not over-do things because it may have a much more opposite and negative effect.
How often should Triptorelin be used?
Only 1 single 100mcg dose per cycle is typically used. If you are doing more than 1 cycle a year then you would need at least 4 months between doses. If over 1mg (1,000mcg) is administered in 1 year it is possible to get castration-like shutdown of your system.
When should Triptorelin, Clomid, Nolvadex and HCG be used during PCT?
Triptorelin – should be used during PCT when all esters have cleared your system and you are ready to recover.
HCG - People that use HCG during a cycle can continue to use it with no problem. Some people don’t like using it during a cycle so that is not a problem either. Once it is time for PCT then you should NOT use HCG because you are using Triptorelin for your PCT.
Clomid & Nolvadex – should NOT be used during PCT. We know this sounds crazy but Clomid & Nolvadex will have a negative effect with Triptorelin and your recovery time.
Triptorelin is meant to be the one stop peptide that recovers your system without HCG, Clomid, Nolvadex or any other drug.
Studies we have read have seen results from even 600mcg used in a three-day period, and still hpta – hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis – function was completely restored, and his hormone levels remained within the normal range during three checkups within the following year. This suggests that the restart will not have the “flare” effect if used at reasonable doses.
Another study showed the same effect, with a dose of only one 100mcg injection into a bodybuilder who had been shutdown for 13 years.
How to reconstitute Triptorelin?
Triptorelin is typically manufactured in 100 mcg amounts and is reconstituted with sterile water.
- If you have a 100mcg vial then you can add any amount of sterile water to it since you will use the entire vial at one time. If you fill a 1 ml U-100 insulin syringe up to the number 20 (20 units) then this will be a suitable amount of sterile water for the peptide to dissolve.
