Natural Testosterone

Im basically trying to understand a tiny bit more about testosterone levels, with your help

These numbers are simplified as i dont know actual levels etc

(in basic terms) If you naturally have 100, and take a steroid which gives you 150 of synthetic test, over the time your on your bodies production gradually goes down from 100, is that right?

and so when you get to an end of a cycle it will depend on the strength, ie the amount of synthetic test you have put in, and how long you have put it in for??

SO at the end of a cycle, if your bodys natural test is at 50, does it ever go back up to 100, with pct? or without pct??
or would it just go back to 99 or something close but not total.

in what circumstances would your levels never go back??

i expect adil will give a definitive and decent answer but others feel free to answer i would like as much input as possible

thanks guys really appreciate it

    Yes

    and so when you get to an end of a cycle it will depend on the strength, ie the amount of synthetic test you have put in, and how long you have put it in for??


    Essentially, yes

    SO at the end of a cycle, if your bodys natural test is at 50, does it ever go back up to 100, with pct? or without pct??
    or would it just go back to 99 or something close but not total.


    After PCT it will be around 90ish. It will recover for a week or two after PCT as well (depends on the dosage and duration though). It will eventually get back to 100

    in what circumstances would your levels never go back??


    The level that it will eventually return to is called your 'baseline'. It is essentially determined by your genes, in particular your pituitary gland (controls amount of LH etc..). You pituitary gland is still growing upto roughly 21 years of age, therefore your 'baseline' has not yet been established. If you take steroids before this time, then your body will be confused as to the level that it should restore itself to, and you may never reach 100 (as per your example) after your cycle
