TRT Blood Tests After Blast

I’m posting this for anyone who has frequent TRT bloods through the year like I do. I have done mini blasts with time on equal to time off. Results of total test below after starting 100 and moving to 120mg:
7/20 - 743
11/20 - 722 (moved to 120mg)
3/21 - 865
6/21 - 480

Before the 11/20 I did a blast of 500mg TC. Lowered TRT to 100mg four weeks prior to testing, did half weekly dose on Monday, bloods on Wednesday.
For the 3/21 I did a cycle of TC at 500, 2iu HGH that carried through to the week of my blood work, anavar 50mg day. I stopped 4 wks before again and back to TRT. The anavar went to one week before the test. I believe the anavar affected my clearance rate of TT causing this higher number.
Most recent bloods, I did TC up to 750mg/wk, EQ early on cut six weeks prior to bloods, HGH 2.5 iu through cycle to one week before bloods. Anavar 50 mg day last few weeks, cut 2 wks before blood. I waited five weeks this time, all other variables the same.

So even with a larger blast, the extra week clearance was huge. Five weeks to clear from blast to TRT bloods.

With Cyp that sounds about right

Did my TRT bloods, 679 TT. I took the Anavar to a week prior to bloods. Based on this and my last few bloods, I would say Anavar absolutely affects TT either through clearance rate or another mechanism. This was waiting five weeks like I did for my bloods in June. The only difference between the two was taking anavar to 1wk our vs stopping 2wks in June.
7/20 - 743
11/20 - 722 (moved to 120mg)
3/21 - 865
6/21 - 480
10/21- 679
