    Exclamation stared steroids at 18 years old is it too late to quit?

    been doing steroids for about a year and I keep seeing posts saying you should be 23-25 years old before you start. Is it too late for me to quit I am 19 now

    Heck of a first post. Care to share more details such as what you're taking and how much, do you have an AI, training details, height, weight ,etc.?

    Hard to say if damage is done or not it can take years to see the damage. Wouldn't hurt to stay natural for a few years.

    Well you know you can only get worse if it does, so why not just stop anyway? Don't worry

    With some personal experience on the topic,
    my advice is to do a heavy PCT and stop now.
    If you didn't use hcg then staying on TRT while using hcg for some weeks before quitting could be done, but probably won't affect the end result that much.
    If you quit now chances are good that you'll eventually recover IMO,
    might be you develop problems later on, but thats a gamble,
    and it's less likely the sooner you quit.

    I know you probably don't want to quit yet,
    but trust me on this, those side effects you've noticed this far isn't anything compared to what's gonna come if you stay on.

    Remember that you can always chose to do a cycle later,
    but when you stay on indefinitely, you eventually can't quit at all.
    And no doctor will prescribe TRT for you before you're well over 25,
    (Even with low T they are reluctant and will probably just ask you though it out), so without being hysterical about it I'd say you really should quit ASAP,
    it will make things a lot easier for you. Trust me on this.

    I can personally attest to the low T and not getting proper care at 25 that Doc Toxic talks about. I never cycled prior and was suffering greatly from low T levels at that age. Even though I had every symptom under the sun and all my blood work came back indicative of primary hypogonadism (worst possible cause of low T) no MD would treat me. I had a prolonged illness as a teenager that was most likely the cause, which was well documented in my medical notes. I won't get into my usually rant on not getting proper care other than to say. Especially if you tell them you cycled. If you develop low T from cycling at your young age, you WILL NOT get proper care.

    My advise would be, if you choose to continue to cycle. Learn a proper Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) and Intra Cycle Therapy. (HCG during Cycle) Get blood work done regularly so you know where your body is at and know how compounds effect you. Use the smallest amount of steroids you can to reach your goals, which is always the best practice.

    If you Choose to stop, then do an aggressive PCT, AFTER you have took HCG for 4 weeks while still cycling. Once you PCT is complete get blood work done to make sure you are fully recovered. Then focus on diet (which is the most important part to a body building program) and staying consistent with your training.

    Good luck to you in whatever you choose.

    Use the search function here for "Power PCT Protocol." This is what you should do in your situation, imho. After that, stop cycling until your older and know what you're doing before you have long term damage.
