What type of tests should be done after a cycle to ensure levels are normal and you are healthy?

Go to Doc and prescription to get your test levels checked. If you really care you can pay an additional price a private vendor to check your estro, DHT, and such.

What about blood lipid levels?

Total Test
Free Test
LH
FSH
Estradiol (E2)
CBC
CMP
Cholesterol (total panel)

I would say these are the absolute minimum. Other beneficial hormones could include:
-TSH
-Free T3
-Free T4
-Cortisol (8 am)

any idea where these test are offered?

Your doctor?

You could try www.privatemdlabs.com

They offer the female hormone panel, which is very cheap (like $50 or so) that will cover most of the items you need. Don’t worry that its the female panel, they will recognize you’re a male and do the right tests for you…it makes no sense to me why that panel is cheaper than the male panel.
