    milk thistle, milk thistl, milk thistle. start pumping that shit to get the liver back down.
    you havent recovered propely from the sdrol because of all the drinking you have been doing... liver hasnt had a chance yet ;)

    problem with australia... your test is STILL in range, therefore your doctor wont help you. i thought mine was low for my age at 18 haha.

    [MENTION=1508]Christian[/MENTION], why do you think the younger generations have harder times recovering natural test levels? could it be that superficial test products have shut down the usual test production of their bodies to now only produce a minimal amount?

    went to get bloods today. the doc I wanted to see wasn't in so I saw another. explained that I'd used aas and wanted to check my test and estro levels. he said that they won't just test me for recreational usage and if I want those tests I need to pay

    so I said my libido was low, I'm tired, having erection problems and my mood is low. then he decides I can have some tests

    I managed to get LFT, urea/elect/creat, TFT, free test, total test, full blood count, iron
    he wouldn't do estro cause he said that's a female hormone. wtf
    will what I got be sufficient to tell me how my recovery is going?

    the doc will give you blood tests and print them for you, for the most part they aren't bothered. they might refer you to an endo if your pct fails though

    ^this.




    and yeah i say re check in 6 weeks or so and see how they are going.

    if your feeling fine theres likely nothing wrong with your test levels, some people are symptomatic with test mid range (of low testosterone) but i know a few people who live down the very bottom (sometimes below) and still feel great (insane libido's etc.)

    i recently had my bloods done with i-screen.
    the male hormone test cost me 130$ it also includes oestradiol, DHEA, progesterone and prolactin. but not DHT which sucks because thats very important to know too.
    my oestradiol came back way high at 167pmol/L. GP pretty much refused to even discuss or look into and i had to beg for a re-test. i requested for DHT and i got it tested. good luck trying ask for that one on your bloods from a GP...

    167 not too bad. A bit over, but not by much. Up near 250/300 is high.
