Question About T Level Tests

Hey Guys, been a long time lurker, this is my first post.

Just wondering if anybody knows whether or not labs will test for steroid metabolites when they check your hormone levels? I’m currently coming to the end of a 60mg ED Anavar cycle, and am hoping to take advantage of my low T levels and score some free test. Last time I got my levels checked I was at 423ng/dl (total).

Lifted this from iron mag form as related info:

Half lives

Oral steroids Drug Active half-life
Anadrol / Anapolan50 (oxymetholone) 8 to 9 hours
Anavar (oxandrolone) 9 hours
Dianabol (methandrostenolone, methandienone) 4.5 to 6 hours
Methyltestosterone 4 days
Winstrol (stanozolol)
(tablets or depot taken orally) 9 hours

Depot steroids Drug Active half-life
Deca-durabolin (Nandrolone decanate) 15 days
Equipoise 14 days
Finaject (trenbolone acetate) 3 days
Primobolan (methenolone enanthate) 10.5 days
Sustanon or Omnadren 15 to 18 days
Testosterone Cypionate 12 days
Testosterone Enanthate 10.5 days
Testosterone Propionate 4.5 days
Testosterone Suspension 1 day

  • Winstrol (stanozolol) 1 day

*Winstrol depot does not actually possess a classical half-life because it is un-esterified. Instead, the microcrystals dissolve slowly. Once they have all dissolved levels of the drug fall very rapidly. It is still an important consideration, and we have included it with a half-life of one day.

Steroid esters Drug Active half-life
Formate 1.5 days
Acetate 3 days
Propionate 4.5 days
Phenylpropionate 4.5 days
Butyrate 6 days
Valerate 7.5 days
Hexanoate 9 days
Caproate 9 days
Isocaproate 9 days
Heptanoate 10.5 days
Enanthate 10.5 days
Octanoate 12 days
Cypionate 12 days
Nonanoate 13.5 days
Decanoate 15 days
Undecanoate 16.5 days

Ancillaries Drug Active half-life
Arimidex 3 days
Clenbuterol 1.5 days
Clomid 5 days
Cytadren 6 hours
Ephedrine 6 hours
T3 10 hours

You will be lucky if you even get a doctor that knows to check LH/FSH for your T levels, much less anything that could pertain to steroid suppression. You are fine.

But beware even if your T levels are low, your doctor may just be an idiot and brush you off. You have to find the right doc.

That is really incredibly sad, but not at all surprising.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but won’t a lot of doctors have you wait weeks or months and come back for another test to recheck T levels?

OP, your best bet is going to be a life extension clinic or something similar, but your insurance will probably not cover the rx.

If you’re lucky. Many will just write you off as depressed, give you a script for Wellbutrin, and send you out the door.

That happened to me. Turns out I had cancer instead.

holy shitballs!

Yeah it’s rediculous when doctors wont even listen to/entertain any of their patients ideas. That’s why i recently switched doctors. The guy wouldn’t even refer me for bloodwork to check my T levels because he “thought it would be a waste of a test”.

Funny I didn’t think about that subterfuge. Anyone tried that with success lol?
