    First Cycle

    Hey guys

    First and foremost, I'd like to start with background on my body- almost 20 years old, 6 foot, weighing around 175 lbs.

    I've been researching steroids for a few years, and I'm finally convinced to take my first cycle. I've been training for about 14 months straight, which isn't the longest time, but I have been for about 4 years on/off.

    My reason for wanting to start is simple- I've been tested, and have low test levels to begin with- it's incredibly hard to develop any muscle.

    I'll probably get a lot of 'it's too young' and what not, and you may be right, but I have this awful tendency to commit to something once my mind is set on it.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated, such as what to start with etc

    Thanks

    You had blood work done and you were found to have low test levels.... and so did you ask your doc (or any doc) for help with that?

    Where were your levels at? Do you suffer from other symptoms of low test?

    With all due respect, if your test levels are naturally crap then just doing a cycle isn't a solution. If your levels are in the normal range and just not near peak then that's a different matter.

    I haven't had a follow up appointment, no. I'm not at home ATM I do have a sheet with my exact levels, I'm unsure of it from the top of my head.

    I have several symptoms, which caused me to go and get tested- mood swings, low sex drive, sleep disturbances, fatigue and spells of depression.

    My levels weren't incredibly low, to the point of non-existence, they were slightly below normal.

    Thanks for the reply, Ernst.

    From personal experience if your test levels are low to begin with then recovering from a cycle will be difficult. This may or may not be true for others with low test... My guess is due to your age the risks are compounded and you may end up feeling much worse than what you do now. If I were you I'd go to a doctor who specializes in this and try and find the underlying cause and get a comprehensive hormone test.

    Thanks for the reply man! As much as I'd like to do that, I'm not in a position to be able to afford that as it's incredibly expensive where I am

    Go and see your doctor regarding your low test levels and don't try and sort them out yourself, also stay clear of doing a cycle. I know its not what you want to hear but adjust your training and diet because with only 14months under your belt you have no idea what works or how your body responds to intense training and a consistant diet. First port of call is seek help with your low T with the professionally and learn how to eat and train properly. You have to put in the ground work and build a foundation

    Thanks for the reply. My Doctor said there's not much he can do for me in making my test rise at this age. I was speaking to my father and he said he naturally has low T too. I'm going to speak to my PT about it soon and see what he says. Again, I appreciate your response!

    A doctor wouldn't say that if your T levels were low. He has to treat your symptoms ask to be sent to a specialist, and your PT is the wrong person to treat you
