  1. Post cycle, recovery & blood test

    Well it is an opinion board where we all have different opinions and experiences - the key word being DIFFERENT. IMO the best way to use the board is to review as many opinions and sources as you can and make YOUR own informed opinion and accept ownership of your decision. As we have all done :clap: .....and if you can't take the good with the bad or only want people to agree with you all the time, don't join public forums. Not directed at anyone. Gonzo
  2. Post cycle, recovery & blood test

    You MAY find that those results are artificial and not actually your natural production due to the DHEA. DHEA is an androgen that is a precursors to testosterone. First it converts into Androstenediol, which in turn is converted into testosterone. The result of this may actually influence the test results that you have and may not be an accurate indication of recovery. Being an adrogen, in high enough doses DHEA can shut you down and does not promote natural test production. DHEA in high doses is often used as a bridging compound due to its mild nature but lets not forget that it is still artificially raising test levels It was 100mg/day and the bottle lasted me for 2 weeks only, weeks 2-4 with Nolvadex. Weeks 4-6 was on GHRP-6. During week 4 was my first of two blood tests and was 1-2nmols while taking the DHEA but feeling pretty good in the gym. Waited 2 weeks and sorry correction to above bloods were 16nmols. 18 was my natty level 4yrs ago lol...am aging :shock: A 2 point drop in 4 years, you must be doing something right. I'd be stoked with that...
  3. worth bumping dose?

    Dunno.... That's what I was told, something must be responsible for the pain.... What do you think M8'.? Whatever it is re-heating back to the melting point works just fine if the strength is only 200-250mg/ml. Adding more BB could make it more painful. If it was made with 20% BB and then you add more - ouch! It doesn't need a lot of BB, 10-15% is more than enough for 200mg/ml strength. You can still get crystallization with adequate BB if it wasn't heated enough to begin with though. I've made Test Prop that crystalized before and getting oil to the right heat to begin with was the only issue. Reheated properly and it holds just fine. But dunno unless you know what it's made with :-) What temp do you suggest for the oil?
  4. Post cycle, recovery & blood test

    I've never used it, too hard to get and I've only needed Nolvadex for my cycles. Last time off cycle was end of last year after 10mths on cycle and bloods came back within 6 weeks to normal (18nmols) with Nolvadex, DHEA, and GHRP-6 taken while off. So not much help sorry.

    Thats exactly what all my research has lead to and the protocol I follow. If I was not able to get HCG during cycle but managed to get some during PCT or even later it would be worth using if you felt you needed. After all it is used that way as a fertility drug in both men and women. You guys in NZ seem to have the same drama we have in Australia, there is no HCG try asking your Doc for Ovidrel, its basically the same thing but a few studies actually show it to be more effective.

    IF it actually is blodenone then you more than likely have the Cypionate version (if it has crystalised) so will behave exactly the same as Test C and is a powder at room temp. Low concentrations of BB are generally the cause of Test Cyp crashing so this is possibly what you are dealing with. Id send it back but if you cant, try to fix it with some heat and a dash of BB

    Impressive work mate, keep up the great work Gonzo
  8. worth bumping dose?

    No quite often apon re heating the compound will remain in soltion (ive seen it go both ways after a re-heat), I cant exaplin this off the top of my head but could look into it more. Hypothetically lets say you re-heated into solution and it was "going to" crystalise again (in time of course). If you were to inject while in solution fully it would be completely absorbed by the body before any crystalisation could occur internally, im not even sure if that would technecally be possible once dispersed though the muscle and into the body. Feel free to correct me if im wrong The reason I mentioned it is I've got some Boldernone that crystallised in its vial, I've tried re-heating it then injecting, but once in the muscle after a day or two it bites like fuk... I was informed it had re-crystallised, hence the pain.. If you had BB I would suggest re heating and adding .5ml (to full 10ml vial) this will disolve it back into solution and is more than likely the initial cause in the first place, not enough BB to hold. Give it a shot... It could also be the BA and BB ratios that caused it to crash in the first place causing the pain.

    Definitly a possibility but I would heat it to see if you can get rid of it. As for the test and tren "fighting" for the same receptors, well thats not something you need to worry about, the body will not become saturated and although as doses increase you may diminishing returns it is not due to lack of receptors. Tren is the much more powerful compound so running it higher to let it do its thing while supplementing a small amount of test will reduce chances of sides this is the more common method now. Although there are many people that still prefer it the other way based on the thinking that tren is so harsh that you need higher test to keep you balanced. I guess it just comes down to the idividual and what works for you, give it a go and see if you like it. If not try a different approach next time. Gonzo

    Clearly being down on weather offshore has left me with too much time on my hands but I completely agree :clap:
  12. Post cycle, recovery & blood test

    Might its mimicking action further suppress LH, therefore take longer for the HPTA to kick-start..? No I dont believe so, LH is already suppressed from the exogenous testosterone and the mimicking action keeps the testes in good condition therefor making restart a lot easier for the HPTA Quote: Since a LH mimicking agent is supplied exogenously the negative feedback signal to the Hypothalamus will tell it to stop making GnRH, so NO natural LH is produced. As above Quote: Shouldn't restarting the HPTA into functioning correctly after cycle be the best way forward..? Yes definitly and thats why the use of HCG to keep us in a functioning state is the best possible option IMO Well I guess this is why we are all entitled to our own opinions, there is always a different perspective to look at. It appeared from your post that you were in favour of HCG use and your argument appeared to be solid but I guess there was some confusion there on my behalf. From my understanding both from my research and personal use the HCG theory of stimultaing the testes and avoiding astrophy is a sure solid way to assist in the eventual restart of natural production as the testes will be in better condition to do so. I didnt use HCG on my first cycle but I did on my second and it made a world of difference and I would never go without it again. My .02c
  13. worth bumping dose?

    Its already in your system so its not going to take another 4 weeks to reach optimal levels, I say go for it on the tren and I dont think there is any problems with your test dosing. Up the tren to get the most from it and leave the test to keep you "functional" JMO As for the colour, as long as its not clear you are fine. Tren powder is yellow so even in clear oil you will get a golden colour but it can be even close to black and perfectly fine (eg seasame oil), as for "needs shaking" thats not a good sign and may have come out of solution. Try heating it in boiling water (with a pin as release valve) it may go back into solution, then again it may not...
  14. Post cycle, recovery & blood test

    Id say you are very close to spot on from my understanding but it also sounds like you are now in favour of HCG during cycle right? Which is exactly what I had mentioned would have been the best protocol to begin with. The only points I feel need referencing are as highlighted above "regain testicular size" should in fact be replaces with "maintain testicular size". This leads directly into the second highlighted part which is exaclty why we should be using the HCG on cycle. While LH is already suppressed by exogenous testosterone we can mimick the action keeping the testes in a more functional state throughout cycle, therefor the restart of the HPTA into a functional state as mentioned will be a much simpler and faster process. Thats going to give faster recover which is the entire aim here. Now dont forget in my earlier posts I made a reference to the way I thought things "should" have been done throughout the cycle if possible, simply for future knowledge for the OP and anyone else reading that may want to take the information on board. My actual only solution and suggestion to the OP in his current situation was to get his bloodwork done to further determine the cause of his issues and hopefully from that we would be able to offer some further more relevant advice.

    Good to see you gettingstuck in mate, stick with all the points the guys have mentioned and you will see much better and stronger improvement. You may also want to lower the bar further down away from your neck (hard to tell but it looks almost dangerously high), centralising it more across your traps and rear delts should help with support and your posture.
