    Lightbulb Stopped mid-cycle. (Acne) Help

    I recently began my then planned 12 week cycle of 500 test/e a week. with winstrol 50 ed for the first 4 weeks. I didnít see/ feel much until about week 4-5 (cycle ended at week 6) and all of a sudden I had the alpha male feeling, gained an easy 10 pounds while significantly reducing body fat, pumps were crazy, and I could lift for hours, weight went up etc. I went from 205 12% to 220 while looking a lot leaner. Probably due to the winstrol. However I through in Mast p 200/week from week 4.5 (3 days before finishing winstrol) only because I couldnít stand the aches in my joints and high bp. Well around the middle of week 5 two things happened causing me to end my cycle. My supplier went completely A-wall and couldnít ship out anything for two weeks. So I had no choice but to not take any test, and just decided to not take Mast anymore. Around the time I felt the ďkickĒ I also experienced an acne flare up on my outer shoulders, arms and all over my back, theyíre like little undeveloped white heads, almost sand paper like which definitely freaked me out. Itís now been a little more than 3 weeks since the flare up and Iím back taking test e 350, and mast 200 (its now been one week back on) the acne is clearing up nicely.
    My question is do you think the test caused the acne? Or the Masteron ? It definitely couldnít have been from the winstrol because I got none when on it. However when I dropped the gear I also completely changed my diet eating a shit ton of spinach and veggies, while using topical creams and showering 2 times a day, basically taking every possible physical cause to acne out of the equation. So Iím not sure what the real culprit of acne is from. I have Accutane in hand in case anything happens, I just started modeling for an agency here and definitely canít afford acne. Would rather deal with any other side effect. Any response and experiences is much appreciated. Thank you!

    Always have all the gear you need before you start the cycle.

    Your cycle looks unplanned. Masteron won't help your high BP or joint issues.

    Acne occurs due to hormone changes for most people. For my first cycle it was inevitable but now I don't get it anymore, seems I have gotten used to hormonal changes. What AI do you use and at what dosage?

    Your description doesn't look like cystic acne which accutane is for.

    Still after taking accutane it will get worse before getting better, at least for a month.

    Accutane is harsher on body than taking steroids .

    Going without test in your system can have some serious side effects, as someone else already said you should always plan your cycle ahead and have gear and pct on hand, you dont know what could happen a few weeks in the future.

    I wouldnt underestimate how bad you can feel being shut down with no test in your system either, people have commited suicide from the depression that can be associated with low test levels.

    The least of your concerns are acne ,
    Unless you are going through something serious health wise or life wise , you don’t just stoona cycle and if you do , you should always have pct on hand. You could seriously fuck your body.

    I didn’t have all the gear with me because I was moving states from Hawaii during week 5, so Id get the rest of gear when I made the move. Although now I regret it, and should have just shipped it out from where I was staying.

    I started taking Aromasin 12.5 eod On day 20 when I felt sensitivity, and felt Gyno flaring up, and then continued then continued the dosage until I stopped test. Should I drop the mast and take winny instead? Or just continue test 350 for a few weeks and then reevaluate?

    You should ALWAYS have everything you need plus more

    You are playing with hormones in a huge way.

    I was definitely afraid of low test, and no sex drive, I will make sure to have everything I need in future cycles. I am set right now for the next 12 weeks with PCT. from the 2 weeks I was off I did not feel bad at all, just lost the crazy energy, a bit of size, glycogen maybe and no longer had raging sex drive. However I was functioning normal. As if I’ve been through pct. but this could be due to the enanth ester.

    So I’ve came to the conclusion that I will continue with test e 350 and drop the mast. If all goes well then I’ll ad in the winny during the last four weeks to cut up nicely (if acne doesn’t occur) and will continue my daily acne regimen. Will also take Aromasin as needed. Thank you guys!
    BTW what’s the models name in your profile pic Mr. BB? ��

    Stay at a consistent dose of test throughout. Also a consistent dose of an AI. 2-3 weeks after you started taking your AI get some bloods done, make sure you get your sensitive estradiol test. Adjust AI dose thereafter.

    I'd avoid winstrol for now. You have already been using it for 4 weeks. Orals are very toxic, not just on your liver, don't push it being on it for months. Winstrol is among the harsher ones. The thing is the conditioning effects are temporary. Why put your body through that stress for a moment with a little more striations, if it isn't for a bbing contest (where you would plan so you use it at the end only anyway). These effects fade away once you stop using it.

    How many cycles have you ran ?

    Just run at traditional 500mg a week for a 12 weeks and get bloods 6 weeks in ... obviously bloods before
    If acne comes... then clean lol . It’s a part of the lifestyle Bro, if you are scared of pimples , then just stick with good diet and training

    Cousin is spot on, no winny no mast. Blood work 8 weeks after PCT. Read all the educational stickies, twice, before cycling again so you don't continue to make foolish mistakes and risk your health for the rest of your life.
