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 .
After two partial meniscectomies (age 16 and 23) to the same knee, severe arthrosis and chronical knee pain at least since the first surgery I went to a new orthopedic surgeon (the guy was in fact a knee specialist) for a slightly different reason. Being myself an MD I know from University that orthopedic surgeons don´t know a lot about articulations and / or articular pain. If you complain to them about articular pain they will prescribe glucosamine sulfate, something they perfectly know that has absolutely no effect appart from placebo.
