I’ve messed around with steroids on and off for many years, but never doing anything too heavy. Typical cycles were testosterone around the 400mg/week mark. I’d tend to do 10 week cycles followed by significant breaks. My recovery from the last couple of cycles was so poor that I decided that I didn’t want to put my body through it again so I have stopped using steroids now for good! I’m 27, male, 85kg @ 15% BF.
9 months later I have decided to get bloods done as I still don’t feel like I should. Results were:
D.H.E.A. SULPHATE 7.750 umol/L 0.44 - 13.40
FOLLICLE STIM. HORMONE 2.7 IU/L 1.50 - 12.40
LUTEINISING HORMONE 4.59 IU/L 1.70 - 8.60
TESTOSTERONE 12.85 nmol/L (371ng/dl) 7.60 - 31.40
SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOB 39.57 nmol/L 16.00 - 55.00
FREE ANDROGEN INDEX 32.47 ratio 24.00 - 104.00
Allegedly, according to the doctor, these levels fall within normal ranges, but maybe of an 80 year old?
As it’s been 9 months, what are the chances that testosterone levels will significantly rise again? Should I be considering TRT at this point? Are there other ways I could boost my testosterone? Any advice much appreciated.
