Do I Need a PCT Course?
Should I take a Post Cycle Course after taking SARM's?
We recommend you get a PCT from us following any cycle. If you suffer from gynecomastia (man boobs) during a prohormone or steroid cycle this is more than likely caused by low levels of testosterone. In fact, if you find yourself with man boobs while using a steroid or prohormone, your body has started to increase estrogen at a much higher rate than testosterone and this will continue after you stop taking the drugs.
The best way to combat this is by getting a PCT. A good PCT course will help return your testosterone levels back to normal while preventing estrogen from continuing to rise. If you are not sure if you need a PCT, it’s best to err on the side of caution and get one. It will help restore your body back to its normal state much faster than if you didn’t take anything at all.
Signs of Needing a PCT Course
High levels of estrogen can cause:

Which SARM's Need a PCT Course?
Below we have listed out the most popular SARM’s and whether a PCT cycle is needed for it;
Ostarine – PCT?
Ostarine or MK-2866 being used up to 20mg for 8 weeks should not require a PCT. Higher dosages or longer cycle times will most likely need a PCT.
LGD (Ligandrol) – PCT?
LGD-4033 does require a PCT at any dosage and cycle length. In clinical studies testosterone levels went back to normal levels within 21 days with no PCT. However, the study may be at a lower dosage than you are considering, and if stacking with other products this will increase the shutdown effect.
Cardarine – PCT?
Cardarine or GW-50156 is also not technically a SARM and does not require a PCT as it does not impact testosterone levels.
YK-11 – PCT?
YK-11 is not a SARM but is a steroid and does need a PCT.
MK677 – PCT?
MK-677 is also not a SARM, it is a growth hormone secretagogue. It does not require a PCT as it does not impact testosterone levels.
