    How long to fully recover to normal levels

    If someone does a basic test e 500mg cycle. How long would it be for you hormone levels to come back to normal? Is there anyway to speed this up? Can taking just 1 or 2 cycle of steroids change your normal levels for life? Just looking for some information thanks.

    There are a lot of variables that would make this question hard to answer. Genetics are going to play a big role in how well someone recovers. Some guys can bounce back faster than others. When I talk about recovery, I'm not just taking about libido and sexual health, but also lipids and liver health. Even injectables are going to tax the liver, and how quickly you can regenerate will come down to how strong your liver is. Cholesterol is very genetic and some are prone to having issues while other guys are the picture of health. For sexual and reproductive function, age plays a big role. You can find out all the facts about your body by doing lab work BEFORE your cycle, so you have a baseline and know what normal is. Then a couple months after PCT, have them rechecked. 

    Something else I should mention, for anyone who is serious about training and decides to use gear, using only one or two cycles is going to be rare. Using steroids becomes more of a life style than just 1 or 2 cycles. A lot of guys have gone into it thinking thats what they'll do, but it usually doesn't work out that way. 


    If there is one thing that will help with recovery, it's doing PCT after your cycle and using HCG at a low dose, around 250iu, a couple times a wk, through the cycle. This will make a difference.
