Let's say you used 1 gram per week and the half-life is one week.
So one week after quitting, you are at a level as if using 500 mg/week. Two weeks, 250; three, 125; four, 60; five, 30 mg/week.
The half-life is probably shorter than this so the situation probably is better yet than this.
If they were doing an isotope test actually even that could be detected but that is just getting ridiculous. Actually so far as I know it's ridiculous even that they would do test/epitest, but if they did, all that would happen is your epitest would be a moderate percentage higher than usual.
But there is a wide range allowed, and so unless you were naturally right at the low end of the range for epitest production relative to testosterone production, you would pass.
(The isotope test takes account of the fact that synthetic testosterone has a very slightly different ratio of carbon isotopes than is the case with naturally-produced testosterone. Therefore in a mass spectrometer, the percentage with the differing molecular weights is slightly different. But this is a very costly test. It is completely unreasonable that your employer would have it done.)
The most likely test is simply seeing if steroids other than naturally occurring ones -- e.g. Winstrol, Dianabol, nandrolone, etc -- are present. That is far cheaper.[/quote
As you say at the bottom of your msg i think they are just looking to see if there are any Steroids in my system other than natural ones ..... that said would 5 weeks be enough time for me to test neg for Test E ????
this is only my 2nd course of gear so i am fairly new to all the technical jargon .. and I'm sorry if i sound like a novice ... its because i am in this matter
