    Default Female Steroid Use

    It is important to note that we need to take a different approach to AAS Use. There are only a limited number of the AAS, which we can consider.

    E.g.

    Primo, Anavar Nandrolones, Winny, Proviron

    And in the case of some HGH.


    Even at the lower dose side affects can occur, male hormone in a female body can cause adverse reactions. We discussed this before so we know what we are talking about; I will list them later for reference.

    When planning that first cycle you need to remember a very low dose of very low androgenic items is advisable. This will offset much of the risk of virilization. One benefit for women is that we do not have to consider our naturally occurring test production, thatís something the men can keep! Also because of the choice of drugs available we avoid the more liver toxic substances.

    We can benefit from the use of estrogen antagonists, including Nolva and Proviron, these can improve condition and make the muscle appear harder.

    AAS have been seen to be extremely effective for many women athletes, look at a track and field event or any fitness competition and you will see women who have obtained size, strength and endurance.

    A basic beginners cycle and one I would recommend for a first-timer, includes Primo for 8 weeks. I suggested this to Fitgirl as something to look into after her ECA/Clen stack.

    Week 1-2
    50mg Primo
    Week 3-8
    100mg Primo


    Since the virilizing effects women suffer from when using AAS tend to be permanent, it is a good idea t to use caution at all times.

    One technique is to stack two low androgenic items for a period less than six weeks and then take several weeks off, then coming back to another four or five week cycle and then taking a good two months off.

    Below is an example. Watch for adverse reactions that usually occur in proportion to the duration of use. The use of Growth Hormone by women has proven to be extremely effective in some cases. Since GH is not an androgenic drug, it does not result in any virilizing effects for women. Growth Hormone greatly increases muscularity primarily by reducing body fat stores in the woman while leaving the lean muscle mass unaltered.

    I would though say as a personal thing that HGH is not for the novice, or even intermediate. I would advise lots of research and is really saved for the Proís.

    Anyway a more advanced cycle using the above method.

    Week 1 - Primobolan 5mg/tab, 2 tab/day. Deca 100mg/cc, 1/2cc/wk
    Week 2 - Primobolan 5mg/tab, 3 tab/day. Deca 100mg/cc, 1/2cc/wk
    Week 3 - Primobolan 5mg/tab, 4 tab/day. Deca 100mg/cc, 1/2cc/wk
    Week 4 - Primobolan 5mg/tab, 5 tab/day. Deca 100mg/cc, 1/2cc/wk
    Week 5 - Off
    Week 6 - Off
    Week 7 - Off
    Week 8 - Deca 100mg/cc, 1/2cc/wk. Winstrol 2 mg/tab, 2 tab/day
    Week 9 - Deca 100mg/cc, 1/2cc/wk. Winstrol 2 mg/tab, 3 tab/day
    Week 10 - Deca 100mg/cc, 1/2cc/wk. Winstrol 2 mg/tab, 4 tab/day
    Week11 - Winstrol 2 mg/tab, 3 tab/day
    Week 12 - Winstrol 2 mg/tab, 2 tab/day


    So if we are going to take the risk what benefits are there?

    Reduced Body fat
    Increased Lean Muscle Mass
    Feelingí of Euphoria (donít get carried away!)
    Increase in self-Esteem
    Heighten Sexual arousal!

    Using AAS "improves nitrogen utilization which promotes a positive nitrogen balance by the reversal of catabolic processes This can improve nitrogen balance and increase the concentration of total plasma amino acids. Which will result in increased protein synthesis and decreased nitrogen excretionĒ. This all points towards an increase in leanness, muscle definition, muscle mass, weight, and strength Recovery time will be faster which as you know will allow you to train harder and longer than before, and if desired more frequently. But IMO less is more!

    One Thing AAS are not a miracle pill they are not super pills, which answer all our problems. I honestly believe when you take AAS things get harder; your discipline and dedication have to be unwavering as without Diet and Training AAS are nothing.

    OK Some negatives

    First off any negative side effects are proportionate to dose and duration of use and the type of AAS being used.

    Though some side effects appear very obvious, other effects of using AAS may not be so easy to find. There are 3 areas of a woman's well being that are being affected:

    Physical
    Behavioural
    Functional

    Youíve probably seen that many times before but IMO its is the best way to clarify them.

    Physical side effects

    Virilization can occur as stated and this unfortunately means taking on male characteristics.

    You will retain much more sodium; the face and eyes can appear puffy. Over time, a woman will develop a male body type and experience male aging characteristics. The Voice may deepen and can permanently become hoarse. Hair growth can rise on the face, chest, back, and upper pubic area, Iíve read about baldness as well but we talking extreme here! Skin can become coarse and of course in heavier cycles acne raises its ugly head (pardon the pun). Hypertrophy, or enlargement, of her clitoris occurs as well. Most of these physical side effects are irreversible.

    Research and knowledge is key, the textbook can be extreme in its definition. If you are sensible and take note of what is going on then you can avoid the above. I would advise having someone close to monitor your progress as well, someone you trust to be honest and constructive.

    Behavioral side effects

    Now moods and irritability are something we deal with during our menstrual cycle. However, this can be increased on cycle and in some instance aggressive out burstss can occur. Herbal remedies exist, which can help stress, so again with self-control and honesty you, can be human.

    The extra attention which the extra muscle mass can bring may also have physiological affects, I often feel people comments to be inappropriate, but I put it down to jealousy.

    Functional side effects

    AAS affect a woman's natural body functions. With an increase in testosterone levels, hormone levels are far from being in synch.
    Having testosterone 30 times greater than normal lead to a decrease in sex-hormone binding globulin (SHBG- a protein produced in the liver), a decrease in follicle-stimulating hormones, a decrease in circulating HDL-cholesterol, and a decrease in thyroid binding proteins. With these ever changing levels of hormones the immune system is at risk.

    A structured programme of vitamin supplementation can help boast immune function. If interested I have a list of items. Also it is advisable to start this programme in advance of your cycle.

    Cardiovascular risk factors include the alteration or diminishing of glucose tolerance and hyperinsulinism (become resistant to insulin), a change in lipoproteins (carry cholesterol in blood) fraction which can cause cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis (deposition of fatty substances onto inner walls of arteries causing blockage), increased triglyceride levels, hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), changes in her myocardium (middle muscular layer of heart wall), and increased concentration levels of several different clotting factors. Blood clots that form in blood vessel disrupt the flow of blood and can damage the heart muscle. Cardiomyopathy (typically chronic disorder of heart muscle that may involve hypertrophy and obstructive damage to the heart), myocardial infarction (localized death of the myocardium tissue usually leading to heart failure), heart attack, stroke, and cerebro-vascular accidents can occur. Anabolic steroids also affect the liver. They can cause cholestatic jaundice (failure of bile flow that causes yellowish pigmentation of skin, tissues, and body fluids), peliosis hepatis (blood-filled cysts develop on liver), hepatocellular hyperplasia (unusual increase of an epithelial parenchymatous cell called hepatocytes in the liver), and cancer. A woman can develop kidney disease and/ or cancer.

    But lets just remind us the above is directly proportionate to dose, frequency and AAS used!!! These are textbook definitions and represent the worst-case scenario. IMO the above is an indication of AAS abuse or mis-use through misinformation. But anything can happen and you have to be prepared. It is your choice at the end of the day, but its important to know the facts.

    As discussed in the Previous thread AAS use can result in the inhibition of follicle formation, ovulation, and irregularities of menstrual cycle that can lead to amenorrhea (absence or suppression of the menstrual cycle).

    A pregnant woman using AAS can do much damage to her unborn child causing growth retardation of her fetus and pseudohermanphroditism (a person having both male and female physical body and character traits, can be affected anatomically as well). Infertility can result from an extended period of AAS use.

    Other negative side effects include bad breath, water retention, muscle cramps, achy joints, nosebleeds, and insomnia.

    So lets summarise those then, taking AAS increases a woman's risk of cardiovascular disease, liver disease and cancer, kidney disease and cancer, a weakened immune system, osteoporosis.
    Ok enough of me!

    Iím working on recommend weekly dosages for the main items listed at the beginning, this will help newbies. Iíve also got info on ECA/Clen still to write up.
    As said Iím sorry for losing the original thread. The theory and practice above should give us a good staring point.

    My wife got good gains with 50mg of test c every 10 days. If it wasn't for her past breast cancer she would use it again.
