College, lifting, prohormones, drinking. What a recipe for disaster. Well the title says it all so lets get down to business.
I had gotten some dbol from a buddy, and i was ready to get huge. Sides were not going to be an issue for me, it was my delusion that with “pulsing” an oral steroid you could get decent gains without any sides. Hey i was ready to go, no need for pct right? only taking 20mg before a workout 3x a week wouldnt really lower my test… hell it might rebound in those off days!
I couldnt have been more wrong.
I began pulsing for quite some time without feeling any ill effects, and getting some decent gains, but it was more about how i felt in the gym… awesome.Mixed with lifting was my college lifestyle, I had cut back on drinking in this, my senior year, but i’d still go out maybe once a week to drink with my friends. Still with no side affects, until i stopped taking the dbol.
I had felt my natural test getting low and swore one of my testes was getting smaller so i decided to stop using. It was maybe 3 days later that my friend had a party and we all went ape shit crazy.
This is when the gyno struck. Now i have had some gyno from puberty, it bothered me but not to a serious extent. But after my night of drinking it was full blown gyno, i was in front of the mirror in shock that beer and alcohol could have such a profound effect on hormones… But wait it gets worse, for some reason i tried to squeeze one of them, you betcha, some prolactin issue. i freaked out and didnt drink for a week and my gyno went back to normal within 2days. But wait, a week later was my friends 21st birthday, and it was time for atlantic city!
The morning after… gyno again, and better yet i had a text message from one of my friends who was suffering from the same problem, he was comin off a cycle of havoc and now he had gyno too.
My lesson learned here is although i knew prohormones are no joke, the aftercare and really just general care you need to take with your body is the upmost importance. Hopefully my gyno will get down to the normal levels they were at before, but when I get some money i will be running a letro cycle as posted here as a sticky.
Beer and Alcohol bad news.
