As a beginner, you may ask yourself what in fact is a steroid cycle. In short, it refers to a period of time in which an individual use anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) for improving physical appearance, whether this is building up muscle mass, increasing strength or burning fat. Each cycle lasts between 4 weeks (in the case of oral steroid cycles) and up to 14 weeks (injectable steroid plus an oral). But there are other factors that influence a cycle length too, such as user experience - beginner, intermediate or advanced user - and goals that are wanted to be reached.
Oral Turinabol is suppressive to natural testosterone and should be used in conjunction with exogenous testosterone. Men who use Oral Turinabol without exogenous testosterone will risk a low testosterone condition. Such a condition can come with a host of possible symptoms ranging from physical, mental and sexually related. However, while physical related symptoms are unlikely when steroids are being used the others are a very real possibility.
Once the use of Oral Turinabol comes to an end natural testosterone production will begin again on its own. However, natural levels will still be very low and it will take a large amount of time to recover proper or healthy levels. For this reason most men are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan once the use of anabolic steroids is discontinued. This will greatly speed up the recovery process and protect your lean tissue. Without a PCT plan it is possible for cortisol to become dominant for a period of time, destroy muscle tissue and promote fat gain. While a PCT plan will promote recovery, it will not return you to normal on its own. There is no PCT plan on earth that has this ability. However, a well planned PCT will speed up the process and ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise.
There are a few important notes on natural recovery, the primary being that no low testosterone condition existed prior to anabolic steroid use. Further, natural recovery assumes no severe damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) through improper anabolic steroid use. As a final note, women have no need to supplement with exogenous testosterone when using Oral Turinabol.
Two other primary Dianabol side effects include high blood pressure and inefficient cholesterol levels. For those who already have high blood pressure this is a steroid you must avoid and if youre predisposed to a high blood pressure condition you are advised to seek alternative steroids without question. Those who have a healthy blood pressure and who do not overdo the dose will generally be fine; in-fact, its not uncommon to see an athlete supplement with 30mg-50mg of Dbol a day and never see his blood pressure go up.
