    Blood work for Test within week of PH & DS cessation?


    Has anyone gotten blood work done about a week after stopping a PH & DS for testosterone?

    I'm curious if the following is enough to keep me low.

    I was running for 25 days:

    X-Trenavar- 90/90/105
    Epi- 60/60/75
    Stano-200: 1200/1200/1200

    I took my last dose Wednesday morning 24-Apr which was only part of my daily dose. Currently I decided to do nothing and have blood drawn Monday afternoon. I would like to see my test levels come back below normal. Prior to starting the cycle my test level was 264 a week before I started the above cycle. That was after attempting to run a OTC PCT from a trenazone and ultradrol cycle I did before the test. I ran an OTC PCT for a month and took 2 weeks off everything and then had blood drawn. Obviously didn't work as well as I would hope but not worried as I am working on being out on TRT.

    My guess is it will be lower than when you started. Maybe not by much but lower IMO. Assuming you never started PCT since cessation.

    Keep us posted. I have also heard that if you eat pancakes with corn syrup an hour before the blood work it drops your t levels. I never done it but one of my friends always does it, he claims it works. His doc has him on test c 200mg p/w and hcg 750iu p/w adex 1mg e3d. Shi* that's a mini cycle his doc got him on.

    Wow that's a pretty bad lab result. If your doctor doesn't put you on testosterone some one should take his license away.

    A test level of "4" - awesome. Yes, steroids shutdown your HPTA. What were you expecting?

    Just wondering what your OTC PCT consisted of prior to running this cycle? and if you plan to run some PCT soon?

    No I knew I was going to have shutdown but didn't know the extent. I was using a PH Xtrenavar and with any PH you never know how legit they are or how much converts. Also they say Epi can boost LH and in this case did not. My T level prior to this was 264 so I didn't know how far I would drop in 3 weeks.

    Prior to this cycle I ran the following OTC PCT

    Weeks 1-4:
    VERSA-1
    Compound-20
    Formasurge 2 pumps in AM
    PCT black 1-2 a day at night
    IForce Testobolan
    IForce Reversitol
    Prolactrone
    SuperSaponins
    Bridge
    DAA 3g daily

    Weeks 5-6
    Nothing... Washout prior to blood draw in week 6.

    During PCT I maintained my weight and strength. Actually a few lifts increased a little and I was still recovering very well. I did not have any issues with libido and seemed like a successful recovery besides test results coming in low normal after 6 weeks out from cycle. I waited a few more weeks and jumped on this cycle.

    My lab results prior to this cycle:

    I do not plan on any PCT at this point. I have clomid on hand but I already jumped back on the same cycle right after my blood draw. I'll finish this out and somewhere in there I should have my script from my doctor for some legit test cyp.

    Well that is one way to do it, in a few more years I will prob consider doing the same thing, the range for normal t is so big, being on the low end but not low enough for trt sucks.

    Your doc may want you to have another draw since you did not have the labs done at first thing in the morning. Every doc I've seen has insisted on an AM draw.

    A lot... I started running anabolics in my early 20's always on = off and SERM always used. Never had any issues still really don't. 1 in every 4 men over age of 30 have low T levels. The range for my age is 250-1000. After my last DS 8 week cycle I decided to try an OTC PCT with clonus on hand in and emergency but didn't need it. Everything worked out... Then after talking to a few of my buddies they convinced me that now would be a good time to be always on lol. So after 4 week OTC PCT I decided to stop taking all supplements and then asked my doctor to do a male health check on me so I could see where I was at. I landed at 264 which is low end normal and of course the primary dr. Just says ok your normal. I had it done a long time ago as well and it was low normal. So from there I decided to jump on a quick 3 week cycle then a 5 day washout and saw had an Endo dr. Take bloods and now here I am. I got a call today and have an appointment next week to see him to discuss the results because they were abnormal.

    I would be happy with TRT in my 30's. I wonder if they know something is up when a jacked dude comes in with crashed test. It would be hard not to laugh a little when he reads those results, personally haha

    I was concerned since I'm pretty thick and weighing in close to 225. But I wore baggy clothes and complain about how hard it is to lose weight. He's an older guy really didn't make a lot of eye contact or really measure me up because I was watching for it. Plus if he really presses I say I'm taking nothing I took pro hormones in my early 20's but never steroids And then I hold my ground. I'm there for their help and they will help that's what they're there for so in reality he probably won't ask. I'll keep you posted after my next visit.

    What's up tuffguy? Man, those levels are ridiculous. I just started TRT 2 weeks ago, next injection is tomorrow. I believe she started me low pending further labs. She gave me 100mg 2 weeks ago, don't know what I am getting tomorrow, but I don't feel anything at all from the first one. ANd every 2 weeks is kind of long based on the research that I have been able to find.

    Yeah she put u on test enanthenate. At least you got a doctor to put you on real stuff fast. My doctor is still screwing with me. Had pituitary MRI... Multiple lab work done and each and everyone was the same. Very Low T and basically non existent FSH and LH. Finally he gave me Axiron which is the under arm liquid crap. He doesn't like the injection because of the front spike after injection. Errrr so now I play this game with Axiron and he is sending me to see a specialist at University of Penn for another opinion. So basically I did not find the typical doctor that looks at results and starts treatment. Oh we'll guess one step at a time.
