I’m writing this post, knowing that I will get roasted for a number of reasons due to my circumstances, but, around this time last year, I ran a 10-week cycle of Test E @ 500mg a week. At the conclusion of the cycle, I ran Nolvadex for 4 weeks at 20/20/10/10. I did thorough research and spoke to multiple people who had experience with steroids before and they suggested this PCT be fine as Test E is one of the less harsh anabolic compounds you can choose.
Let me give you guys a quick outline, stupidly, I started the cycle at 18 - and I’m a Type 1 Diabetic. I thought as though I was making no progress in the gym after what I would’ve called a 1.5-year plateau. Weight wouldn’t budge. Strength wouldn’t budge. Nothing. So, of course, where do you go from there? For me, stupidly enough, I went to Testosterone.
So practically a year since completion, and I can definitely say I pretty much feel the same as I did before except for a few minor things - although in my mind as now an almost 20-year-old, are not minor. My little me downstairs feels like it doesn’t hang properly normally (almost as if its like numb?), and I’ve also lost a lot of spontaneous erections - especially morning wood. I have no problem with erection strength or maintaining an erection with my girlfriend, although it does take me quite long to finish (upwards of 15 minutes, never used to happen before). I also find when I watch porn I don’t get an erection from the visual stimulation, just manual stimulation (don’t watch porn all that often, used to be like a rock just typing ‘p’ into the address bar). It hasn’t fussed me too much obviously, cause it works when it needs to work, but it’s still slightly concerning that a year later my Richard isn’t at his previous peak. Any suggestions as to what to do, or why this is happening?
I got an extremely brief hormone panel done not that long ago, with another form filled out and ready to go, albeit still brief. I may get this test and the results and ask me endocrinologist (seeing her for diabetes, just happened to work well with this), for a more thorough hormone panel, can anyone suggest what I should get included?
Results from memory were:
Testosterone: 9nmol/L (259bg/dl) [Normal Range: 8.3-29nmol/L]
FSH: Mine was 10, but on the form, it said that males under 60 should be <5. ~Makes me concerned I’m trying to make test but I’m not~
Quite literally didn’t get anything tested which is annoying.
I need some guidance and some questions answered, will further update this thread as I get more results - just want my little guy to hang normally again and to be a rock when I’m browsing the good end of the internet. Plus sorry if I’ve posted this in the completely wrong place, a bit of re-direction would be great if that’s the case. Cheers guys
