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.
As Masteron-Propionate is an excellent bodybuilding contest anabolic steroid the majority of who supplement will do so during this period and generally towards the latter half of the contest prep when they are already lean; remember, the leaner you already are the more pronounced the benefits will be. As a Propionate based anabolic steroid there is a very short half-life associated with Masteron-Propionate and to be effective we must administer it on an every other day basis.
Most will find 50mg every other day to be the minimal dosage if the desired effects are to be obtained with 100mg every other day being far more optimal. Yes, you can use more than this but you will rarely find anyone using more than 600mg-700mg per week and more often than not such doses are overkill. For those who choose to use Masteron-Propionate you’ll find it stacks well with most anabolic steroids and common stacks often include items such as Trenbolone, Testosterone and Winstrol.
