Masteron will significantly suppress natural testosterone production making exogenous testosterone therapy important when using this steroid. Failure to include exogenous testosterone will lead most men to a low testosterone condition, which not only comes with numerous possible symptoms but is also extremely unhealthy.
As most will use Masteron in a cutting cycle, it’s very common not to want to use a lot of testosterone due to the high levels of estrogenic activity it can provide. If this is the case, you will find a low dose of 100-200mg per week of testosterone to be enough to combat suppression and give you the needed testosterone.
Once Masteron is discontinued and all exogenous steroidal hormones have cleared your system, natural testosterone production will begin again. Prior levels will not return to normal over night, this will take several months. Due to the slow recovery, Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plans are often recommended. This will speed up the recovery greatly; however, it won’t bring your levels back to their peak, this will still take time. A PCT plan will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise and significantly cut down on the total recovery time. This natural recovery does assume no prior low testosterone condition existed. It also assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) through improper supplementation practices.
High Masteron doses normally begin at 200mg every other day or 600-800mg per week. Technically 150mg every other day would be considered high, but many report Masteron doses of 600-800mg per week to be where this steroid truly shines. Unfortunately, Masteron doses of this nature can be very harsh on cholesterol. Such Masteron doses can also greatly exasperate the androgenic side effects of the compound in sensitive individuals. However, it is possible to control such doses, but it will take some effort and experience. You should not begin with high Masteron doses. Its also important to recognize you may never need them.
