    Have you noticed any other changes besides your strength in the gym?

    Well, as far as satisfying your curiosity about your test levels, see the doc and demand, not ask, to have your total and free serum testosterone , estrogen/estrodiol levels checked....the use of the latter determines the % of test-to-est levels, if out of balance. As to others symps, overtraining? Supplement usage different? Hell, I don't know

    A little more background, please. What AS were you taking and how long for last cycle? Did you use Clomid post-cycle?

    That's pretty good advice.

    I doubt that it's AS related, if you kept the gains for six months, then you should be able to keep on keeping them as long as you are doing things right.

    One other possibility: overactive thyroid. That can cause weight & strength loss. But there are many, many possible explanations that nobody could cover here.

    Best advice is to see a doctor (or have him recommend a good endocrinologist) and tell him that you are concerned that your strength is dropping, demand the tests that slackerdude recomended and any others he can think of.

    BTW: how old are you?
