T Nation

Underdosed Gear - HELP!

Hey I have been a long time fan of T-Nation and referenced this forum for years on cycling and bodybuilding advice. I finally realized the amount I use this forum and realized how dumb I was for not making an account earlier so here i am with a little dilemma…
age: 25
Weight: 237
height: 6’0
training on/off 8 years. serious for the last 3.5.
Number of previous cycles: 3
first cycle was simple test e 500mg/10wk and was fantastic. Second was dbol and test e.

So this cycle I kickstarted with 4 weeks of drol since a buddy had some extra for cheap. It was pretty incredible stuff put on alot of initial size, strength and water weight (which I believe I am still bloated from 5 weeks later???). I have been running 500mg/week test cyp and have been extremely patient waiting for it to kick in. Around week 6 I bumped up to 750mg/wk and I am still having trouble telling if its doing anything. I believe it is severely underdosed but hard to tell because the drol was so effective and I still have some size that remained from that. Last two runs I couldn’t deny the fact that I was getting bigger and stronger but with this cycle after I dropped the drol there is just a lack of evidence the test is doing anything. No real strength increases, acne, aggression, or sex drive like the last cycles.

My question is should I continue to finish up the 3 weeks I have left and try moving the dose higher or just admit the gear is garbage, completely stop and start my clomid/nolva pct?

I have also been running adex .25 2x week bc I get gyno easily but if the test is fake the adex is probably counterproductive so I dropped it.

So depressing with the diet, time and money invested such a let down… Thanks for any input guys.

For 50 bucks you can tell if your gear is fake or not…

www.privatemdlabs.com and order the female hormone panel, which will tell you your Total Test and Estradiol levels, as well as some other liver/kidney markers.

hell yeah thanks man. do you know what kind of sample do you have to send them?

You give this guy your gear and $50 and when you wake up you will be in a tub full of ice, stitched up where your kidney used to be.

They will escort your kidney in a foam ice cooler to the lab. You just wait by the phone, they’ll get back to you. Just keep waiting. They’ll get your results to you within a week.

You dont send them a sample…you pay them and they email you a lab req which you take to Labcorp and get your blood drawn. You get your results back a few days later via e-mail. You can remain anonymous if you wish.

You ever do lab work to see where you are? If so can you post results?
