How Long to Leave the Body

Hi guys,

I’m having search engine troubles. I’m trying to get a list (if possible) that gives rough timings for how long each steroid takes to leave the body. i.e. not show up on dope testing etc. does anyone know of a thread that may have this?

Thanks,

Sax

Haven’t seen one. I know a few which are you interested in>?

Hey Fella,

Non in particular. I’m trying to find some info on the ones with the shortest “life span” in the body.

Thanks

As far as Orals go Turanabol will be out in a short time of 1 day. Dianabol maybe 3 days to be 100% Clean.

In order from shortest to longest for injectables that I am familiar with

Test Propionate - releases in 3-4 days
so out time will differ for everyone, but quicker than the rest listed

Sustanon - has some slow and fast esters
some relasing 3-4 days some taking much longer

Test Cypionate / Test Enanthate about the same Release in 8-10 days and stick around for approx 3 weeks after usage is stopped.

I would say to be on the safe side 30 days off should show no signs in the blood.

If I am wrong please VETS step in and let this guy know!

hope this is what your looking for or else im gonna look like a complete dumbass XD

theres also another list in the steroid newbie thread. but i pulled this one down from the net

Okay, only a couple of replies and already I’m quite possibly about to ask a stupid question.

I thought “halflife” was with regards to the steroid still being active in the boday i.e. still working it’s magic.

What I want to know is, how long you would need to leave it say between your last dose of gear TO being tested for drugs. And with this, which steroids clear out the quickest.

EG - the gym rats often comment that Deca stays in the body for a long time, so if they have a test date, then they leave tons of time in between.

Is my question and halflife the same thing???

no, half life is not what your looking for.

go there it has a list of steroid profiles. click the one you’re looking for and it will be listed as how long it last for it to be detected.

You are not far off however you can test positive for most steroids long after the drug leaves your system. Methods for testing athletes are constantly being improved and researched. Realistically an athlete who dose not compete at top level e.g olympics is unlikely to be exposed to such a high standard of testing.

As far as I know it costs upwards of �?�600 to test an athlete for the full list of IOC banned substances(its a big list). As to exact figures regarding detection times I dont know and if you find any I would take them with a pinch of salt.

BTW the halflife is the time for half the steroid to decay, therefor if you do the maths its plausible that small traces could still be present long after the user has stopped taking the drug.

Olympians and other top end athletes use custom made designer steroids. They cost a lot of money and are untraceable. Also as far as I know there is no way of testing for HGH at present although the IOC anti doping body has promised that there will be one day.

Just to clarify, Olympians and other athletes use the same type of steriods that anyone on this forum will. Im unsure as to what crashball meant by “custom designer steroids”.

Steroids are steroids. They will however use masking agents and have other methods to help avoid detection.

listen peter, how long has THG been around? marion jones and barry bonds were using undetectable drugs, until someone sent a vial of it in… so yes, some of them could possibly use designer steroids, as well as the normal ones

Brilliant!! Thank you to all, very much appreciated.

Saxon, yes I meant in my post in addition to the half-life add 30 days.

Thanks!
