    My blood is always fairly dark? If you're cycling or on TRT, I would be keeping up with my hematocrit levels, E2, and other pertinent labs.
    If you go to donate blood, ask them what your hemoglobin level is. (they generally check before you donate). Multiply your hemoglobin by 3 to get a rough value for your hematocrit value.

    Have you donated blood yet? From your other threads you've been on for over six months(running Eq and Tren w/out donating) I'd imagine both your hemoglobin and crit levels are rhru the roof! If it's darker I'd set up an appt for a whole or double RBC w/a Phlebotomist to get drained... You'll feel so much better...

    are you lethargic, tiered, energy levels down? If so get BW(I believe that BIB already advised this in a different thread of yours already)...

    I don't mean to come off as harsh, just trying to look out... GL and I hope you get this figured out, sooner rather than later... Take the guess work out and get some BW done

    Or set up an appt... Do you have pre mid and any other BW to compare it to?? If not they'll be able to check your levels(iron hemp crit etc...b4 proceeding)!

    GL!
