    cycle started, second guessing

    Guys, first thing, I know I am a dumbass. Please don't rip me a new ass. I am here for help...

    Now. I am 22, and I'm currently about a week and a half into a cycle of test-e (540mg a week) and dbol (30mg a day). I researched my cycle and pct extensively before buying, but I didn't research the effects of steroids on younger folks. Didn't think that far ahead. I was wondering if I quit my cycle now, would that hurt me? would I still need PCT?

    Also, what are the real risks of doing ONE cycle of test-e and dbol if I were to finish my cycle...? Im taking care of my body and I will PCT well. Im worried about my hormones in the future and such.

    I've never quit a cycle like that but my best advice is to stop and maybe run pct. I'm guessing you arent using HCG ? Thats insurance for your balls. Have you noticed any testicular atrophy?

    IMO pct wouldnt hurt and it will only help you get back on track, but it might not be totally necessary. Then again, its not like youre going to save your pct meds for 8 years before you theoretically should begin cycling.

    You can also just stop, wait a few weeks until everything has run out of your system and then get blood work.

    I'm probably just confusing the hell out of you. Dont panic, though, just learn from this experience and enjoy your youthful natty gains from now on.

    Im glad you found out the possible long term effects, I'm sorry you found out a bit late. You're going to be fine. Do you have your pct meds? Go ahead and stop the cycle now, then start pct in 2 weeks. You're original pct plan was weak, as I mentioned in your other thread, but would work gor this. I would recommend you to go ahead and run a small pct even though you've only been on for about 2 weeks. You're still going to be very suppressed, if not totally shut down, especially being you're taking the dbol . So 2 weeks after your last pin start pct. Odds are you don't have to do it, but being as you genuinely seem concerned, it's not going to hurt a thing to do it. You could get by with the nolva only, and that's what I would probably tell you to use, but if you want, run the Clomid too.

    Nolva 40/20/20/20
    Clomid 100/50/50/50

    If you're really concerned, run that. Hopefully some others can chime in, But being you're just 2 weeks in, I would just do the nolva.

    40/20/20/20

    I personally think that will be plenty, if not overkill. You may even be able to cut that back to 2 or 3 weeks. Some may tell you to just drop the anabolics and live and learn, which should also be fine. But I would at least run the nolva just to be sure. It definitely won't hurt a thing to do so.

    I missed this, but i knew it would be said. You're just inside that line to where you should be fine without. But if you do a small pct for peace of mind, that's totally understandable. Either way, you should get bloodwork done. If you choose not to pct or if you do, try to get bloodwork done in about 8-10 weeks. You should be at baseline.

    l agree with PT you can do a small pct for peace of mind what i'd do is get bloods 2 week after last test shot to assess weather you need pct or not. Bloods you should get are
    Total and free testosterone
    LH
    FSH
    Estradiol, you could also throw in ALT and AST to make sure liver enzymes are back in range...

    I'd just stop personally, 1.5 weeks is hardly enough time for stable levels so I would THINK you'd be fine but that's just a guess

    okay thanks guys. I've put on 6 pounds in 9 days... Mostly water I assume. Guess I can say good bye to that. :---) But yup. Lesson learned. Can I still continue to life as hard as I can? or will that be in vein while my levels come back up?

    Gear or no gear, you should always be lifting as hard as you can.

    Stop now run a pct , you won't be shutdown for long and you will recover fast . You may feel a little lag but it will pass . The longer your on the tougher the recovery .

    The above is your answer, if anything is to be run at all.
