Analytics after Cycle

Hi guys. What analytics should be done after cycle? To check liver, kidneys status. Etc. And what should bloodwork include? To check how is my recovery going.

You need time after whatever your PCT was to allow your system to reach an end point so the labs are more meaningful. If your testes are becoming softer and smaller - you are shut down and labs will verify that if you test LH/FSH.

Most PCT methods discussed in this forum are harmful. Many will survive that, but vulnerable guys may not. So if your labs indicate problems, PCT can be at fault. See some notes in the stickies, look in the first topic of the forum.

You need lots of time to allow all traces of SERMs to clear out which will tend to elevate LH/FSH.

  • TT
  • FT
  • E2
  • LH/FSH
  • AST/ALT <-- need to lay off training and have fully recovered muscles
  • CBC and hematocrit

– that covers the basics
