shaz29 - Wed Apr 25, 2007 10:50 pm

Hi I'm living in the UK so steroids are legal to possess here, wanted to ask a question, I am planning to use testesterone enthanate at 500mg a week for 12 weeks, I will be injecting into the glutes.. is this sort of dosage safe?

hi guy. I am not a doc but I have some experience with what you are talking about. Test is extremely potent especially enanthate ester. But everyone reacts differently, for some of my friends 500mg/week is easy going on test E. I have friends shooting 1gram every 4 days that are competing. But it is very dangerous as well, I have had friends have Heart attacks during theyre sleep! Some wake up from spasms in the middle of the night, can never sleep, loose ALLOT of hair especially with enanthat ester. You WILL see these signs: Accelerated loss of hair, Enlarged prostate, you will need to urinate allot more often, these 2 things will NOT get better after quitting the testo cycle, you will loose almost everything you gain if you do not have proper post-cycle drugs as well which all run theyre own side affects. also you will be risking, cancer in the testicles, liver cancer, Prostate cancer, Acne, infection from injection, your own test axis will be screwed up, when you bombard your body with testosterone your testicles will shut down to try to lower your own level of testosterone resulting in testicular atrophy, with no way to know if your natural testosterone levels will ever be back to what they were at. You can become sterile and rist having to take multiple HCG injections just to try to get your own testo and sperm count back in line. I mean is all this worth a little cycle to have fun in the summer? Trust me you will not regret if you stick to naturall bodybuilding!

Also you can have an allergic reaction to lab-made testosterone, and you can imagine injection 2ml (if you ahve the 250mg/ml vials) of something that you are allergic to deep into your body, it will really mess you up!
