For the vast majority of anabolic steroid users, the timing of steroid detection does not matter: after all, most people are not even agonists. In the United States alone, it is estimated that over six million adults supplement their training program with anabolic androgenic steroids for the sole purpose of improving performance, and 85-90% of them do so for personal reasons. They are not competitive athletes, they are not in competitive sports, but they are just ordinary people, gym goers, trying to build a better body. Of course, for the remaining 10-15%, steroid detection time can become very important, because a positive anti-doping test can lead to the end of a sports career. With this in mind, I want to show the time of discovery of steroids. But first, you need information that you need to know.
If you are taking tests to detect anabolic steroids, in most cases it will be a test that measures the relationship between testosterone and epitestosterone levels. In this case, if the testosterone levels exceed the epitestosterone levels above a certain point, the test will fail and the test will be positive. Most sports clubs have a baseline of 6: 1 (testosterone: epitestosterone). However, there are some organizations around the world that use the 4: 1 ratio as a guideline.
To pass these tests, you have two options:
- in the first case, it is necessary to ensure that the substances taken were excreted from the body in such a way as to guarantee levels not increased or changed during the test;
- in the second case, a trick implemented over the years, the East Germans masterfully perfected the elusive process by administering epitestosterone to their athletes; they stayed in an acceptable 6: 1 ratio. Their testosterone levels increased, but their epitestosterone levels also increased.
In any case, the standard test is just a urinalysis and nothing more. There are hair follicle tests that can be performed, but, however, most sports organizations do not perform these tests as they are considered elusive in many ways. In any case, when the athlete understands the time of detection of the injected steroids or other anabolic substances, if he knows when the test will be performed, which is not difficult, he can pass the control every time without any consequences.
Choice of steroids
If you are a competitive athlete, if you are going to integrate your training with anabolic steroids or other “doping” substances, you need to understand the timing of their discovery. For competitive athletes, the choice of steroids used will be somewhat limited.
For example, Nandrolon-Decanoat steroids can generally never be used by an agonist athlete, as their detection time exceeds one year. Many testosterone compounds should be avoided, especially esters or testosterone blends. If you are not a competitive athlete, it doesn’t matter who you hire, as there is no testing problem.
Steroid Detection Time
In the table below you will find the detection times of all the most common anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) that you have access to. There are three categories in the table; common trade names, the substance that underlies such a trade name, and finally the actual time of discovery of steroids for a particular hormone.
