    Lightbulb Pre-Cycle, On Cycle, Post-Cycle Full Blood Work Panel Results

    I have written all test results I have

    Here it is uploaded as a big image to google drive > https://drive.google.com/file/d/17Lh...aqGRmD1dS/view

    Please comment

    Unfortunately my natural free testosterone level is at the very minimum end

    Green column is my pre-cycle test, orange column is my in-cycle test (2x250mg Sustanon each week), blue column is 3 days after last pill of PCT (Nolvadex 40/40/20/20 mg each day weekly)

    I have to note that my in-cycle results are not fully reflecting the dosage I have used. Because in first 4 weeks of my cycle, someone else did my injections. After a while I have noticed that he is not doing the injections fully. Later he admitted that he didnít do the half of the injections for the sake of me lol. So I think we can say that the testosterone level is only half of what it should be in cycle. After 4 weeks, I have done the all injections myself but I didnít get another blood test

    After PCT has ended it has been 13 days

    So far I have strength loss, libido is about my pre-cycle level and it is definitely way lower than what it was in cycle, and I have got Malassezia (Pityrosporum) Folliculitis in my chest area

    These are the side effects I have gotten after cycle

    By the way I am 32 years old and have the best shape of my life currently. I am sitting at least 12 hours a day in front of computer due to my job and life style

    ========

    My SHBG is really high and i wonder are there any way to lower it? This causes my natural testosterone to be at the very low end limit

    Moreover, I was expecting higher FSH and LH after PCT. However, it is withing normal ranges. Can the dose I have taken nolvadex be lower for my body? Still it seems like i have recovered good enough.

    You need to run bloodwork 6-8 weeks after finishing PCT to get an accurate reading of your hormones.

    The current post cycle bloodwork you have doesn't mean anything.
    It is not heroes that make history, but history that makes heroes.

    No source checks.

    AAS has a reverse correlation with cortisol. Cortisol signals your muscle cells to release hlucose and nitrogen into the bloodstream, on the other hand AAS signal your cells to hold nitrogen and glucose while working synergistically with estrogen and insulin .
    AAS cause your body to get into anabolic state (cortisol is catabolic), thus cause cortisol suppression. Some compounds do this to a greater extent, such as winstrol .
    After you come off of a cycle, your body tries to find the equilibrium. HPTA is not the only axis that your body uses to regulate hormones. There is another one called hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis (HPA axis). Cortisol suppression leads to a HPA suppression. Just like your body tries to bounce back your HPTA, it also does it for HPA. Adrenal glands are responsible of secreting cortisol.
    In a nutshell, what you see after a cycle is a HPA bounce back resulting in high cortisol levels.
    This is why blast and cruise protocols are far superior to cycling (blast and PCT). During PCT, your body has low testosterone . Testosterone blocks cortisol from binding to its receptor site to some extent.
    Primo, for instance, is medically intended to prevent older people and the people receiving cortisol treatment from muscle wasting and atrophy. This is because of its cortisol receptor blocking capabilities.

    See this study if you have further interest in testosterone and HPA axis suppression.
