During next cycle should i visit Doc..
Hey bros, hope you guys are getting bigger or leaner..anyway my question is a simple one I was wondering if anybody in the forum has visited a Doctor while on a cycle? If so what did he check for? NEXT CYCLE I WAS THINKING OF TELLING HIM TO DRAW SUM BLOOD AND CHECK IF MY KIDNEYS AND LIVER ARE WORKING FINE. aLSO I WANTED THEM TO CHECK MY BLOOD PRESSURE, CHOLESTEROL LEVELS, HEART RATE, AND THATS ALL I CAN THINKA BOUT RIGHT NOW ANYTHING IM LEAVING OUT? LAST QUESTION IS MY LAST SHOT WAS ON JULY 17 HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT FOR NEXT CYCLE?? THANKS BROS AND KEEP ON LIFTING

my rule of thumb I try to stay off for as long as I was on minimum

Definitely stay off for the amount of time you were one. I know it's tempting to jump into another cycle, but you have to be safe. I'd also get my PSA (prostate) levels checked as well...

If you really want to be safe, getting these tests done are what you need:
CBC (tests number of red cells, white cells, total hemoglobin, hematocrit)
LH, FSH (luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone)

how much would it be for those tests and how much blood work would they need bro???

there is another post right around here with some other good tests also. like mallet said in the other one, it might take 2 visits for giving over 5 vials of blood. i'm not real sure on the price, my insurance has taken care of it in the past.

if your doctor asks for testosterone measurement, he will know that you're on cycle. The test results are off the roof compared to normal. Mine were 7000ng/nl (high end of range is 1200ng/nl) and free test was 1200ng/nl (high normal would be around 300ng/nl)

you can order a mail test kit from several places which will measure only free test. Try www.astresearch.com
something like $50 although it takes forever to get the results back.
An official blood test needs to be ordered by a doctor, I believe, and is not cheap but should be picked up by your insurance.
