THANK YOU!! I fucking irks me to no end when I see someone spewing off nostalgic vitriol about how the Edwardian era and the 1950s was some sort of heaven on earth for those of the penis-posessing variety. IT WAS NOT. In fact it was far from it. Want to talk about gender roles? How about the MALE gender roles. Men were regulated to cannon fodder who were obligated to lay down their lives in the trenches of France and Belgium during WW1 because their respective European emperors told them to because of a bitchfest that was simmering with the other European emperors. Ditto for the Vietnam war 50 years later. And a few years earlier they were obligated to freeze to death in the Atlantic ocean as the Titanic sank under them because the life of a man was apparently less valuble than that of a woman or child.
As with all anabolic steroids Oxandrolone will suppress natural testosterone production in men. Testosterone suppression does vary from steroid to steroid in terms of the rate and Oxandrolone is one of the milder forms. However, most all men will still need some form of exogenous testosterone if they are using Oxandrolone at any significant dose for any significant time. Those who do not supplement with testosterone have an excellent chance of putting themselves into a low testosterone condition. For the purpose of information a performance level dosing of Oxandrolone will suppress natural testosterone production in most men by dropping serum testosterone levels by 50%. This will put most men into a low level state and if not certainly in a below optimal state.
Once the use of Oxandrolone is done and it along with all anabolic steroids has cleared the body natural testosterone production will begin again. It’s important to note that recovering prior natural levels assumes no prior low level condition existed and that there was no damage done to the HPTA during steroid use . Most men will need a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan to aid in recovery, but they should also note that PCT will not promote full recovery. It takes several months to recover from anabolic steroid use and there’s no guarantee that you always will even with the best PCT plan in the world.
