Hello there everyone, I would like to get a bit of your information. Well, I am now in the middle of my first every cycle and I am a little bit worried in regards to my testosterone and to my estrogen levels, having that said, I’m having some questions which I would appreciate if I would get some help with (only 2 questions):
First one is: what type of lab test do you think that I need to use in order to monitor my testosterone and estrogen levels? What kind of lab test do you use for checking these levels? And if possible, why? Are some of them more precise than others?
And the second one is: I am not sure, but I am just thinking that I do have some natural tendency to have low testosterone levels, unfortunately, and to high estrogen levels, since I am a man, of course, that’s super bad. The reason why I think so (and why is super bad, obviously, if you would read about low test levels on men you would see why) is that before I have started to cycle I have been very and very often in a bad moon, I have nearly always had a reduced libido (nearly no sex drive at all, often losing erection during sex) as well as low energy too, and plus to that (why I think that I’m high in estrogen) is that I have nearly always have had man boobs (not waay too big or anything like this, but it is still a problem). Now, I am going to start using a product called nolvadex tomorrow (if you know what nolvadex is, if you don’t please search for it) and I am going to take it for the last 3 weeks of my cycle as well as for pct. Now, with all of that being said my question is: is here someone who has ever used arimidex for off cycle test boost and to keep your estrogen levels in good levels? Obviously if yes, please tell me more.
I’ve gotta add here that a couple of after starting with my cycle, the test showed that I am having 469 ng/ dl total testosterone. In a few days I am scheduled to have a second blood test (when I am going to be 6 weeks into cycle) and as soon as I would find out the results, I am going to come back here with an update and let you know what were the results I have got from being into cycle. Thanks in advance for any of your help!May 12, 2017 at 3:35 am #1664DavIDParticipant
Hey there OP, I’ve gotta ask you… have you done pre cycle bloods in order to check what you baseline is? I think that this is really important and I guess your doctor told you about this.May 12, 2017 at 3:53 am #1665KermanParticipant
Oh my god… you have tested 469 ng/ dL on a CYCLE?! I just can’t believe this! Tell me, how much as you injecting each week (you forgot to mention this). You also mentioned how you felt before cycle but you never said how are you feeling right now in the middle of your cycle..May 12, 2017 at 4:13 am #1666
Hey there…. Well… you know [quote] have you done pre cycle bloods in order to check what you baseline is? [/quote] to be honest.. no, I did not do it. And no, my coach has never told to me that it is something necessary, do you think I should ask about this myself? And I must tell you that it has been after I have informed myself while browsing this forum site (as well as other sites to) when I have then realized that I needed some test bloods in order to monitor my testosterone level.
Also want to answer this: [quote] Oh my god… you have tested 469 ng/ dL on a CYCLE?! I just can’t believe this! [/quote] well, it was not after the cycle. In fact, I haven’t even finished my first cycle yet. It did was during a cycle, but it has been after only 5 shots… also this: [quote]Tell me, how much as you injecting each week (you forgot to mention this) [/quote]; my cycle it is 100 mg test prop and 100 mg boldenone EOD, what do you think about this? Does it sounds like a good thing in your opinion? In regards to the last question of how I feel now… well, my mood seem to get a bit better. Sex drive not sure as I haven’t tried and man boobs… well, I guess it is too early to say anything now. To be honest, not sure what to say.
Btw… most importantly (just thought about asking…) what do you think that it should be the good (optimum, proper etc.) test levels while I am on a cycle?? That’s, as I said, taking in consideration that I am using 100 mg test prop and 100 mg boldenone EOD. Thanks for answering and hoping for more help and answers.May 12, 2017 at 4:48 am #1667LiesssonoParticipant
Your first cycle at the age??? Age is very important to say here when talking about this. Whatever the case, I just know that 469 it is a sign that something it is not right for 5 shot of 100 mg prop. This is the reason why I think that you surely must get gear tested before you are going to continue to put that into your body, you’ve got to check it. You, I think, most likely have 469 to begin with!May 12, 2017 at 5:10 am #1668
My age is 33 years. I’ve gotta say that actually, I have already depleted the first phial, Rousell test prop; the second phial it is XT labs test prop; I am going to have a second blood test in a few days as I have already said it earlier, however I am just being afraid that the results are not going to be all this good that I expect them to be, especially after you told me that there is something wrong to have the number 469 after 5 shots. But who knows? I still have a bit of hope.May 12, 2017 at 5:15 am #1670LiesssonoParticipant
Well.. yeah, that’s definitely not normal at the age of 33 to have 5 shots and to have such a number… it does seems to me like you are injecting who know what… Indeed, you are also right that who knows what would be the results? Also I am not a medical professional, I am just having some experience with this and that’s why I said that IMO it is not normal. However, I still think that you must have it closely checked and know for sure what you put into your body. Like for example if it is just some oil then it is not as bad as long as it is all sterile, however, then again, normally fake stuff why wouldn’t anyone filter and add bad that the worst part. Whatever the case, hope you’re going to be fine.May 12, 2017 at 5:33 am #1671
Thanks once again for answering, I appreciate it but I just don’t know man… I do think that it must be legit… I mean, considering that this gear I have got from my gym coach which I have known for the last 2 years or maybe even more, I do got the feeling that it should be all legit as I doubt that he would give me some kind of crap. But on the other hand, you said that this is not normal and plus to that, as I have already said it in some of my earlier posts, after being on this stuff for 6 weeks I do feel like I do not have any really significant benefits/ changes/ gains. The only one benefit that seems I have is the mood improvement, as I said, however I am not sure if it really improved… it’s all strange. anyway, I must say that I really read a lot about how testosterone is working (I said it earlier) and after all those readings I came to the conclusion that there is a chance that I may be suffering from hypogonadism… of course I don’t know since nobody confirmed this, however I think that it might be mild because if that’s true, this would truly explain a lot for me. Maybe I would get it confirmed later. Whatever the case, I just really want to get rid of those man boobs and to get leaner, however, it doesn’t really matter what… I still seem to be stuck, regardless of what I do, and that’s really hard to live like this when there seems to be nothing that can help me. Anyway, as I have already mentioned in my posts earlier, I am going to start with that stuff called nolvadex and I am going to continue with this cycle until I will finish it and do pct just not to screw it anymore as I’m tired of all of this. Anyway, reading online did helped me a lot as I am having a few ideas for my next cycle now and also for the off cycle too. Again… who knows? Maybe at least my current plan would work? I am ready to do nearly anything now just to feel fine again. Thanks for answering and for your valuable information!May 12, 2017 at 5:58 am #1672KermanParticipant
Hi there. Please, post your LH and FSH values here so I might be able to help you a little bit more. Or at least I will try to help you. Also, for how long after the injection 5 did you have done your blood work? I’m going to try to help if you post these.May 12, 2017 at 6:15 am #1673
Well, thanks for concerns and for trying to help. Gotta say that I am going to post my results as soon as I am going to receive the blood test results the next week or so. As in regards to the first one, I just have asked for the total T analysis, gonna come with an response when I will have it.
As for the second question about how long after the fifth injection… well, from as much as I remember that blood test has been done 2 days after the injection number 5. I remember this as that day I have had my first lab (I firstly went to the lab then) and after that I have went to the gym to have my coach to administer me the sixth shot – he administers them to me, or at least he did in the past because back then, I was still been freaking out to self injected those and so he was helping. That’s just another thing why I doubt that my gym coach would inject me so crap. I don’t know… maybe my body just doesn’t absorb it properly?
One more thing here, this time I am going to ask for the sex hormonal profile as well… from as much as I have read there, I saw that they are testing total testosterone, free testosterone, estradiol as well as LG and some other things that I can’t remember their names. To be honest, it is a little bit expensive but this won’t stop me. In fact, there’s nothing that would freaking stop me! I swear by my life that I am freaking going to get rid of these freaking damned man boobs or I will die trying doing so! I just won’t stop searching and doing whatever it takes. I hate them and I will get rid of them!
