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 .
Sustanon is made up of 100 mgs of testosterone decanoate which has a half life of 14 days. The next drug in Sustanon is 60 mgs of testosterone isocaproate which has a half-life of 8 days. The third drug is 60 mgs of testosterone phenylpropioate with a 6 day half life. And finally the last ester is testosterone propionate which has a half life of 4 days. So not only is it extremely difficult to map out the life of these different testosterone esters, but in addition, Sustanon is only dosed at 250 mgs per ml. This means that if you are using ampoules of Sustanon (the little bullet shaped class vial in the pic next to the box), you have no choice but to dose the drug in multiples of 250mgs.
