Quick Recovery After a Cycle of Steroids Or Prohormones Like Methyl 1-D

Ok, so one of the common joked about side effects of anabolic steroid use is the classic “little penis” syndrome, where your penis supposedly shrinks up and gets smaller. We see this used all the time in everything from movies to sitcoms. Does this “joke” have any basis in reality or is it just another popular misconception about anabolic steroid use?

In fact like any popular reference, there is a hint of truth to this myth, but it isn’t at all about the size of your penis, in fact has to do with the testicles. The testicles are responsible for producing the majority of a mans testosterone, therefore when the body senses more than enough testosterone being available (or testosterone analogs like anabolic steroids) in the hypothalamus, it works on a messenger system that controls the entire testosterone releasing process. This process involves the hypothalamus sending a messenger to the pituitary gland which then releases the chemical messengers follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), collectively known as gonadotropins. These then make their way to the testicles and in turn increase sperm production and testosterone production respectively. Now, when a person takes higher than normal levels of androgens like anabolic steroids, the hypothalamus, sensing there is enough “testosterone” like androgens in the body, reduces these hormones and there for effectively shuts off the testes from making it’s own testosterone. The testes left in this state for 2-12 weeks, will naturally shrink from 10-40% to conserve themselves. Actually, there are studies showing that this “shut down” is not damaging, it actually prolongs the life of the testes and increases their functional life. The “shrinking effect” however is what propagated the myth.

If shrinking is inevitable on a cycle of steroids, what can we do to reverse this as quickly as possible after a cycle of steroids? Popular belief uses anything from time, which we know works, to herbal agents like tribulus, to over the counter testosterone boosters like Formadrol or even prescription breast cancers drugs like Tamoxifen Citrate! These agents are all meant to boost the stimulation of LH and FSH by reducing estrogen.

The hypothalamus is also sensitive to estrogen, which means if it senses a shortage of estrogen, it will also stimulate testosterone production! That is correct, the body’s entire estrogen store is made from testosterone via aromatase. Aromatase is simply an enzyme that converts testosterone and androstenedione to estrogen’s like estradiol and estrone. By blocking this conversion we can “fool” the body into producing more testosterone with its ultimate goal being to boost estrogen. Estrogen governs many biological processes and is essential for proper life. Too much is bad, but you do need some to function at your peak. Prescription drugs like Arimidex and Letrozole have been used by bodybuilders to reduce the testosterone to estrogen conversion. There are natural agents that have similar properties and strengths like 2-Phenyl-Di-Benzyl-Benzopyran-4-One and 3-Beta-Hydroxy-Urs-12-En-28-Oic Acid, both which have been shown in preliminary studies to prevent this conversion.

Prohormones have a similar possible “shut down” effect when taken and it’s also advantageous to use one of these agents after a cycle of prohormones as well. Popular prohormones like 4-AD from Advanced Muscle Sciences and Methyl 1-D from LG Sciences, may also have this health promoting shut down effect. Time will certainly kick start the testes and bring them to normal levels, but the bodybuilder may want to accelerate that process in a similar way to steroid users.

Another way to trick the body is to block estrogen at the receptor level. Prescription drugs like Tamoxifen and Clomiphene are used by underground steroid users to stop the effects of estrogen. These drugs, called competitive antagonists get in the way and take the place of estrogen, yet don’t have the same level of activity, so they “block” the estrogen at the receptor. This approach seems to have a much better effect for bodybuilders coming immediately off cycle, since there is no natural testosterone to convert immediately post cycle. Luckily, natural agents are available that mimic the effects of these prescription drugs. Two popular ones are Resveratrol and Ellagic Acid. Both of these can act like Tamoxifen in preliminary studies, making them ideal immediately post cycle.

The only product I’ve found that has both the aromatase inhibitor and competitive antagonists in a natural supplement is LG Science’s Formadrol (called Forma-D on bodybuilding.com). It should be able to give your boys a nice bounce whether you use prescription products like illegal anabolic steroids or prohormones/prosteroids like Methyl 1-D (M1D).

It’s always best to discuss anything like this with your doctor and weigh the pros and cons of hormone use.

    Marry my daughter because I spent 12 hours on editing my video… then I accidentally deleted it… then I saw this video

  • ULGY Duckling April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    does this recover video files?

  • Lauren James April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Going through my second go around. After I did the first time, it got to 100% and then the entire application shut down before showing my anything. I turned off my computer and turned it back on, so I am hoping it actually works and doesn't just shut down again. If I don't get my files recovered, I may be in jeopardy of graduating. HOPING IT WORKS

  • Chelsea Levin April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Hi there, I recovered some videos in mp4 format that i accidentally deleted. I have recovered the files but they won't open – when i click on the files a message pops up saying 'quicktime player can't open MVI_0003.mp4'. Do you have any advice?

    The version of the program in the video link is different to the version of the program in your video. It feels like a far older version. All the options you mention aren't available. FYI

    is there a general rule of thumb for how long it takes for computers to overwrite files?

  • Jacinto & Lirio April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Mine looks different from how the software looks in your tutorial

  • Edelle Kenny April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Does this work on Retina Mac's

  • Sandeep Walia April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    How much time it will take man I am waiting from last one hour???? Could anybody help me out

  • Cindy Jensen April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    I downloaded this today; the interface has changed since your tutorial. I didn't see where I could recover photos specifically, so I began a recovery of "deleted files." It has been "scanning in progress" for about two hours and the grey bar hasn't budged. It moved an inch across in the first few seconds, but has not budged since then. I'm not sure how many GB there are to be recovered in the trash – my new internal HD is about a year old. The HD in total has about 380 GB of data on it. Should it be taking this long? Thanks.

  • Gerard Mannion April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Can this software work if I deleted files off an SD card through my mac?

  • Andrew Larson April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Any chance that downloading the software will rewrite over what I've just deleted?

  • Devina Aristia April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    thank you so much!!

  • Josh Sargaris April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Thanks bro, helped heaps!

  • Slavica Kostovski April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Thanks so much! I'm trying this in hopes to revcover deleted photo files for a client. I really hope this works. It would be amazing and will save me from telling my client that I erased their one in a lifetime photos accidentally ๐Ÿ™‚ Fingers Crossed for this one.

  • Thatslovelyy April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    i accidentally deleted some files to free up space on my fcpx and computer, when i tried opening fcpx i noticed the missing files!! when i tried going to my trash folder to recover it, it wasn't there because i had just emptied it out ๐Ÿ™ then i came across this video….and i have no idea how to actually run it!! do i select the "SERCH LOST/DELETED VOLUMES" option? i hope it works!!

  • PresumedPizzaGaming April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    is this safe please reply

  • IWatchWeirdVideos April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    I have been avoiding using my MAC for 2 years now since I emptied the trash bin that I forgot why. It was because they say to not use your MAC in case in overwrites your deleted files. Discovered that I had downloaded Phoenix long ago so hopefully it works this time for whatever reason it must have not before…

  • MrRujipong April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    HELP? When i scanned the Drive it come up with NO DATA FOUND any IDEAS?

  • nevadalamb April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Doing the scan now and it seriously feels like being in the ER waiting room… please let these files be recovered!!!

  • Stephanie Joyce April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    The interface is a lot different from the video so I'm not even sure if I did it right. I'm just looking for a Word file that I deleted very recently. The thing is, it's only letting me preview .docx files. For .doc there's an option to open in Microsoft Word, but nothing is opening.

  • Bumps Baby Beyond Leicestershire April 7, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    I'm just trying this and need to recover my trash items. there is no option for this as per your video so I'm confused what i need to do?
