Depends on the job. Most jobs do NOT test for anabolics, just the other drugs. Testing for steroids requires a special test that costs the company a lot of coin.

That being said, if I'm not mistaken, deca metabolites in the body can be proven in a urine analysis up to 18 months later. :biglaugh: Only two weeks of usage at low doses isn't enough time for the compound to build up in your system IMO.


The major drawback for competitive purposes is that in many cases nandrolone metabolites will be detectable in a drug screen for up to a year (or more) after use. This is clearly due to the form of administration. Esterified compounds have a high affinity to stay stored in fatty tissues. While we can accurately estimate the time frame it will take for a given dose to enter circulation from an injection site, we cannot know for sure that 100% of the steroid will have been metabolized at any given point. Small amounts may indeed be stubborn in leaving fatty tissue, particularly after heavy, longer-term use. Some quantity of nandrolone decanoate may therefore be left to sporadically enter into the blood stream many months after use. This process may be further aggravated when dieting for a show, a time when body fat stores are being actively depleted (possibly freeing more steroid). This has no doubt been the cause for many unexpected positives on a drug screen. The fact that nandrolone has been isolated as the "hands-off" injectable for the drug tested athlete is most likely due to its popularity (and therefore common appearance on drug screens). The same risk would of course hold true for other long chain esterified injectables such as Equipoise, and Primobolan.

Here are the basic cheapy tests that most employers use. Cities aren't made of money for the most part so I don't think you should be unduly concerned, but who knows?

The basic drug test used by most corporate drug testing programs is called a "Five-Screen" (or "NIDA-5" or "SAMHSA-5") which is testing for five types of drugs:

1. Cannabinoids (Marijuana, Hashish)
2. Cocaine (Cocaine, Crack, Benzoylecognine)
3. Opiates (Heroin, Opium, Codeine, Morphine)
4. Amphetamines (Amphetamines, Methamphetamines, Speed)
5 .Phencyclidine (PCP, Angel Dust)

However, many drug testing firms now offer a "Ten-Screen" which expands to include five additional drugs:

6. Barbituates (Phenobarbital, Secobarbitol, Pentobarbital, Butalbital, Amobarbital)
Methaqualone (Qualuudes)
7.. Benzodiazepines (Tranquilizers--Diazepam, Valium, Librium, Ativan, Xanax, 8.Clonopin, Serax, Halcion, Rohypnol)
10.Propoxyphene (Darvon compounds)

you should be fine. steroids wont come up in a normal drug test, simply because they have to be testing for steroids in order to find them... btw very nice quote 0311! also i hope your not taking just deca.

Thanks for all the info Eric3237. Also as far as if Deca is all Im taking, for now yes besides supplements. I just started taking it but I have really good posts in regards to what other things i should be taking it with.
