Because of the nature of unregulated testosterone products there's always a risk that the product may not contain what is specified on the label. Many guys must rely on "feel" to verify the product, however with a simple blood test the average person can confirm if Testosterone is present in the product and we can get a ballpark idea of the mg/ml concentration. Keep in mind that this is a crude method and that one blood test result may not be enough to form an educated opinion about a product.

The following protocols must be followed exactly for at least 4 weeks. No other gear or ancillaries may be used during the first 4 weeks. If you have been on either dose for longer than 4 weeks you may get labs 7 days after your last injection.

All injections must be intramuscular (IM). The first week is a front-load.

Testing Protocol-(for labs that only range up to 1,500ng/dl)

Day 1. 300mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 3. 300mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 7. 300mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 14. 300mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 21. 300mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 28. Total Testosterone Blood Draw (must be exactly 7 days after last inject)

Post lab results once you receive them. Please be specific about the dose, ester and protocol you used in your first post.

Passing results should be about 1,345 ng/dl 139 ng/dl. Due to the crude nature of this protocol, passing results may vary greatly.


Testing Protocol #2-(for labs that range ABOVE 1,500ng/dL)

Day 1. 600mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 3. 300mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 7. 600mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 14. 600mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 21. 600mg Cypionate OR Enanthate
Day 28. Total Testosterone Blood Draw (must be exactly 7 days after last inject)

Passing results should be about 2,370 ng/dl 150ng/dl. Due to the crude nature of this protocol, passing results may vary greatly.

Failure to follow protocol exactly will result in useless results that cannot be interpreted properly.

This is a good thread I only wish more people would have posted results. I am going through something similar but I am getting my gear from a legit compound pharmacy with a prescription. I took 100 mg Test Cyp and then got tested 4 days later and I was only 480. Not sure if this is good stuff or bad but it seems like it from the post above. Can anyone else chime in please? Thanks.

Man I feel your pain on this one! It's the reason I'm only taking 100 mg cyp as opposed to 200. My RBC's and Hemo go way through the roof. And they keep climbing if I don't donate blood every month on the dot. It's a pain in the ass to donate blood every month but that's really the only solution. Either that or cut back the dosage. Try to donate every 2 months and if that's not enough you will have to do it every month.

Donate Hematocrit. They take out 2x the amount of red blood cells. You can only do this every 3 months
