I believe and it's total bro science your body holds onto any carbs and they don't get digested thus the belly! Happens to me every cycle and 2 weeks into pct it's gone, on cycle your body needs a **** load more carbs. Lol least my misses puts up with me farting : ) I know it's the juice cause I've kept my macros exactly the same into pct this time and the belly is gone
This also has happened to me when I took SD, Pmag and epistane, but for some reason the old Pheraplex or Xtren never caused these issues. I do not think it is carb related because i eat low carb all year. It would be great if someone knew a definite way to control this........
Meth related then maybe???
I always thought GI disress on cycle was caused by your liver not producing enough bile which screws up your intestines ability to digest fat. Is that not right?
I would cut out all dairy, and bread people complain about it at first but once you start you really start to realize how little you miss it. I used to drink a gallon of milk ever two days, and every day I felt like crap while at the gym. I chalked it up as stims and supps causing gas and stomach aches, but now I feel great every day focused on my training and not holding gas in on this lift cause of the chick right behind me.
Also I don't really see ph/sd'd being the issue I think it's diet over all. How most of us eat isn't how are bodies were designed to eat. Most lifters eat crap loads of protein ( my self included) tons of processed foods, and poor quality/ small amounts of veg. All this reeks havoc on our bodies. I now have acid reflux because how I ate when I was younger, but now that I have changed my diet I have it for the most part under control.
Enough rambling though if I were you I would try cutting out all dairy, bread and processes food from your diet. If within a month or two you don't notice anything by all means switch back but I would almost guarantee you will notice a difference.

Bile is produced in the liver by pulling cholesterol out of the blood. The gallbladder is the storage tank for bile. When you eat the gallbladder will contract and squeeze bile into the intestine for digestion.
Back on subject, I would have mentioned gallbladder and or liver, but since you have had tests it doesn't make sense. I would ask are you on any SSRI's and drinking alcohol while taking them? That will cause the symptoms you are describing also. SSRI's can cause stomach issues even without alcohol.
its possible that some steroids have anti-microbial effects of some sort. I have seen patents on steroids which are anabolic and are stated to have such activities. thats kind of a long shot explanation but its not unfeasible. theory being they would disrupt intestinal flora
