    AAS and PSA readings

    I previously had a PSA reading of 2.3 a year ago and I had a blood test the other day and it was at 3.7. I know that my prostrate has been enlarged because I have had to resort to flowmax a couple of times.
    I am on a bulk cycle with test at 800, EQ at 600 Tbol at 50 mg and deca at 500.

    Will the effect the PSA reading? I am also on T4 because of my thyroid removal.
    Iím 54

    I am not presently looking to lower it, I am looking to get an accurate reading ( as accurate as possible. I am getting retested in a week and a half . There was a huge jump on n the value. I did not expect test to have too much of an effect since only about 30% converts to DHT.
    Someone said that EQ was worse than test fir the value. I am trying to understand that. I thought that EQ converted to DHB. I didnít think that would affect the PSA.
    I was just going to stop the test, but now I am confused.
    That is why I post questions even though I think I have the obvious answer. Every now and the. I get schooled. LOL

    The amount of test that converts to DHT is unique to the individual based on the amount of 5-AR in your body. Remember, there are two types of 5-AR as well, which is why there are two types of blockers available: Dutasteride which blocks both type 1 and 2 and Finasteride that blocks type 2.
    I've not heard DHB being worse than test. DHB is not DHT yet it still can influence / effect the prostate.

    My guess? It's simply aging. Years back after a longer cycle my psa elevated and remained elevated. As if it said F-U, I'm done. Finasteride then became my friend and cycles with DHT based AAS (other than var) have mostly ceased.
