While using steroids (AAS) it is necessary to do the following blood tests:
1. Pre-test will warn you if there is any reason you can’t use steroid at that time. Also, it will give a baseline for comparison later on.
2. Mid-test (on cycle) will show how your body is reacting to the cycle. (Optional)
3. Test after PCT (Post-cycle therapy) ensures hormone levels return to normal.
Recommendations before the blood test:
(!) Red coloured tests are must do.
Others are recommended/if needed.
1. Pre-test (before cycle):
In Canada most blood tests are covered by OHIP, but at the same time you can’t do them without a prescription from a doctor. Furthermore, a doctor would need reasons for blood analysis. Here are some tips and directions on how to obtain required prescriptions.
1. Family doctor.
Easy to get, if you have a good relationship. Good option if you are clean. Cons – tests data would stay in your medical history.
Naturopath is a doctor that can send you for blood tests. Not covered by OHIP. Prices may vary, depending on location. Approximately, it would cost you two visits to a doctor + blood tests fees. Private option.
3. Walk-in clinic.
Similar to a family doctor. Tell a doctor you are taking a test booster and you feel moody and your nipples are sensitive. In this case they have to give you a form for testosterone and estradiol tests. Private option.
Hope this information will help you.
Stay healthy and strong.
