    Recovery from years of steroid abuse

    Hey I'm curious if anyone here has or knows anyone who has successfully recovered their natural testosterone production to reasonable levels after several years of steroid use ? I have ran every compound under the sun the last 7 years never ran PCT always came off cold and never had any issues. But I have been on much more than off. I'm looking for the healthier route. I'm fine with going on trt but I want to try to gain my natural testosterone back if possible. I'm running pharma hcg about to stop and switch over to clomid for a few weeks and see how it goes.

    About all you can do is run your PCT, give it 4-6 weeks, and pull lab work.
    I'd say it's possible, but not probable. Only labs will let you know.

    If you've never had any issues, what seems to be the problem with coming off and doing a PCT?

    I recovered using Clomid. My numbers were decent, and I regained fertility. Not sure if my numbers would stay good if I came off clomid, as I never tried. Even though my numbers were good, I didn’t feel remotely as good as I did on testosterone , even at a trt dose. The goal was to get my wife pregnant and once that happened I jumped back on testosterone. It took about 5 months. I wouldn’t recommend a standard “PCT”, I would suggest staying on clomid for as long as it takes to get your levels up, and then at that point make a decision on whether you want to try to come off clomid to see if you can maintain those levels naturally.

    as we age, test levels will go down even if one has never touched AAS.

    i cant tell you what to do, but i personally got on TRT and dont intend to ever come off. i can not stand the thought of being a scrawny lil stick boy

    Well, I would suggest that while "abuse" may be subjective, if the definition is as you said, "ran every compound under the sun", then the answer is aboslutley not, regardless of any claims. Furthermore; anyone who has done everything under the sun likely did not do any of it in a manner for the betterment of recovery.

    Best of luck. Have a powerful day!
