This is my first cycle. I am not getting the positive aspects of my test e and am asking for suggestions on what is the best course of corrective action to take.
I am on day 38 of a 70 day cycle (10 weeks)
w1-5: 10mg Dbol 3x/d
w1-10: 250mg test E E3D
w1-6: Proviron 25mg/d
w1-5: Adex 50mg/d (to combat Dbol aromatization)
w6-10: Adex 25mg/d
w1-10: hCG 250iu EOD
I bought my test e from an international source and it is labeled BD 10ml per vial at 250mg/ml. I picked up 3 vials. I am on my second vial after pinning 13 times to date. Next inject is scheduled for the day after tomorrow.
During these 38 days I gained 17.5 lbs and during the time I was taking Dbol, I did get stronger and had good training drive and energy. Since Monday of this week (4 days ago) when I finished the Dbol part of my cycle, my workouts have sucked.
I still have most of the strength, but it doesn’t seem to be increasing and the energy and drive is just not there. The Dbol bloat and accompanying strength is going down too and I have lost a pound or two in the last 4 days.
Being in week 6, there is no way that the test e has simply not kicked in yet. I don’t feel like I am crashing, but definitely seem to be lacking in the following:
- strength increases
- libido (so-so) (hCG??)
- some wood overnight (hCG??)
- drive & energy
Not having the experience of what good test is supposed to feel like, I can only go by what I have picked up in my research of others’ experiences.
While those experiences vary somewhat, I think it is safe to say that one should definitely get a more dramatic reaction from quality test seeing as it is the foundation to any good cycle.
That said, we can assume that my gear in under dosed or one/some of the other compounds I am taking are undermining its effectiveness. I picked up the hCG & Proviron from the same source. I got the Dbol from a local source and I got the adex from a reputable chem research source.
Armed with this information, what is my best course of action?
Get some test prop ASAP and finish my cycle of 500-600mg/w with EOD injections. Test prop since it is a fast acting ester and I cannot wait for a good batch of test e to kick in assuming mine is bad.
Do PCT and regroup for another cycle at some point down the line.
I just want to feel a good drive in the gym and be able to progress in my training. Ramped libido and other benefits would be welcome too.
I was planning to transition from this cycle into HRT since my free T has been quite low for years now. I am 47 years old.
Any suggestions are welcome to help in the decision making process.
