Day: 87 - Lab Results
Went in for my hormone panel yesterday - its been 12 weeks since I came off cycle. I ran clomid up until week 10 and ran the sarms weeks 1-8 then weeks 10-12, stopping Saturday. I had intended to do a blooddraw at week 9 or 10 but funds wouldn't allow it until now. So not completly to plan but as close as possible without putting my life on standby.
So here's the readings:
Testosterone, Serum - 15 - LOW - 348-1197
LH - 0.5 - LOW - 1.7-8.6
FSH - 0.5 - LOW - 1.5-12.4
Estradiol - <6.0 - LOW - 7.6-42.6
I'm not going to lie, I expected low but not this. I feel fine - strength, energy, recovery, endurance are all great. I even have a bit of a sex drive, just not what I'm used to. Im super lean and vascular, I look great right now. Something that I have noticed is my hair is falling out really bad. Other than that I've felt amazing, just a little off - I guess because my body was using sarms instead of hormones? Anyways I stand behind them 100% osta/s4 is legit.
Further proof that running a SARM in PCT is not the way to go. Damnit, and everyone thought they had found the magic compound....

I agree Warbird. Ran a 5 week pct with 12.5 mg Ostarine and 50mg clomid. 4 months later ran 2 weeks at 12.5mg ostarine and got bloodwork... Total Test was 152. Down from 852 pre-cycle. I find SARMS are very suppresive..to me at least. Something I will treat as a cycle from now on.
Either one or both of the two compounds are suppressive, or I cant come back - I permanently damaged my hpta. Its also possible theyre partially suppressive and I have a damaged hpta. Either way sarms seem to be great for hrt, at least to me.
What does this mean? Well first of all I am not going to stop cycling, I have every intention of competing NPC at 205 for an IFBB title. Plus I really like being on.
So what needs to happen is more experimentation. I have started another 8 week blast of mast/tbol/test which is not particularly hard to recover from. Once this has been completed I will start another aggressive pct without sarms, and get another panel after 4 weeks. This will show(at least for me) if the sarms impact recovery or if I'm just unable to recover. Might be the case, I had been looking into trt.
Maybe someone else thats running osta solo in pct can get bloods for markers of recovery? This might help assess the difference between pct with osta/s4 and pct just osta. That way down the road when I try another pct with just osta or s4 we'll have a better idea. Of course more people getting in on this would make it more of a case study.
