I've been on Primo for 16 weeks now 600mg, 150mg test e week, 50mg Proviron daily

Last 2-3 weeks my physique has been getting a bit 'worse' so I got bloodwork done.

Everthing is normal and in range except my hematocrit. I'm lethargic, my mind is a bit foggy, libido is there and good but not raging like it was. My diet is still the same and training is still the same. I have an appointment next week so I'll be donating blood then but for now I'm on 125mg Aspirin daily

My pumps are not the same and my cardio is not the same. It as if theres too much blood to make me full. I could be starving on Primo in week 10-14 and still look full in the morning, but now I'm looking a bit flat.

So, yeah my question is can high hematocrit make your physique look worse?

Thoughts and or experienes with high hematocrit?

I've never heard of hematocrit making you look worse. I've struggled with this and haven't noticed anything like this.

I did change to SubQ Test 2 weeks ago though. I've been browsing for the last hour and it seems it takes 4-8 weeks for it to stabilize in your blood.

I'll be getting bloods done in 2-3 weeks after I've donated to see where I'm at again.


Should I just continue with my Primo like normal or drop it till after I've donated?

If anything high hemo to a degree would enhance performance, when my hemo was above 50 and it was actually caused by frequent higher dose IM cycles, I got so pumped I could move not some times, and would get some bad cramps with the skin splitting pumps. I remember getting irritated because I would blow up like a balloon with a pump after a workout and the deflation would be staggering, just really irritating to me. My hemo stays high above 50 year round even on subq and treated for apnea, but I guess since I am not heavy dosing those chronic pumps were a big part of the AAS dose, but the pump was unreal, way before NO and CM arginine cialis, etc.

Obviously a tried/sick/toxic body won't look it's best. But if anything high rbc's in general would make a physique look better/freakier. You should also get better and longer lasting pumps with high rbc's. So I would be looking elsewhere.

Are you sure your primo is primo? lots of fakes out there and some labs in the distant past were caught selling eq with a little tren thrown in to pass for primo.
Primo should not be risky to raise hemo.
Sub q is a good start, hydrate and give some blood, won't hurt to be on bromelain, baby aspirin and omega 3's to help keep the blood thinner to avoid clots.

This. :yeahthat:

I took EPO a while back when I was an endurance athlete and although I wasn't training for bbing, I was crazy vascular and full..

Don't think it's the high hematocrit that's causing your issue..

When was your 2nd to last bloodwork done and what were your levels then? I assume the primo is from the same order/batch you have been using the last 2 weeks compared to weeks 10-14?

Thanks for the replies. It may very well be many factors. I've been doing cardio 1hour daily so that may also be it.

My Primo is 100% real from AnonRaws who was a sponsor here who went private. The people who has bought from his can go good for this.


Last bloodwork I did not check hematocrit but I felt good. So, my issue is most likely high hemo I think as it came back over the limit.

It makes me laugh guys always look to the drugs first. Yes I think 1 hour daily cardio could be a factor in you looking flater :p I don't like the term overtraining as I love my volume but anyone doing that much cardio plus weight training plus 101 variables (diet, sickness, mood, stress etc) could very well be "overtraining" so that will only make you look worse a.k.a flater.

That statement doesn't make any sense. Like Massive G said, you would be even more vascular. With all that cardio I would make sure you're well hydrated! I would get another full panel while you're on what you're on.

It can flatten me out a little too. Although this sort of stuff happens alot on the forums. I can think of many times guys always thought it was the drugs then they write something that is 99% the cause. Although this thread isn't bad at all. But I had guys ask me stuff like I think tren is lowering my energy. Then a few messages down I find out they are crash dieting on 1000 cals. Their gear is fake and then you find out their diet... complete crap with 2 protein shakes a day :D

It could be a number of factors, but right off the bat you mentioned that you started going sub-Q instead of IM with your test around 2 weeks ago, and I believe that subQ would slightly slow down the absorbtion, right? hence there will be a time period where your once stable 150mgs of test drops while the sub Q is lagging to absorb, this is very minor, but you are also on barely just a replacement trt type dose. Test always makes me thicker and fuller when higher and whenever I lower it, unless I upped the orals, or maybe deca, generally speaking I'd be flatter than before, although I can't speak from experience with Primo, clearly its claim too fame is its mild nature...so this would be in line with my reasoning, see if you went back to IM ing your test and your still flat, although at only 150mgs nothing is going to be dramatic.

Curious to know what is your Hematocrit level in your blood work?
