With that said, some women do experience side effects when they simply go off steroids after a long cycle. This is because Anavar is, in fact, a hormone, and any kind of hormone fluctuation in the female body can lead to unwanted effects. These may include things like hot flashes or mood swings – things women may experience during menopause as their hormones begin to decrease. Fortunately, even though PCT isn’t necessary, it is possible to avoid most of these side effects with a tapering dose at the end of the cycle. The chart below shows an example of a tapering 10-week cycle.
As we discussed above, Dianabol carries a strong aromatizing nature, and is a C17-aa anabolic steroid; as such, its side-effects will revolve around these factors. As an aromatizing steroid, this means there can be a testosterone to estrogen conversion, and if estrogen levels go to high it can lead to some complications. When estrogen levels increase, the hormone can attach to the receptors and cause gynecomastia (male-breast enlargement) and it can also promote excess water retention and high blood pressure; Dbol is notorious for promoting high blood pressure. Needless to say, if you already suffer from high blood pressure you should not touch this steroid, but if it's healthy you'll need to ensure it stays this way. For this reason, in-order to combat and avoid these estrogenic side-effects of Dbol, the use of an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) is often advised. It shouldn't be too hard to see how this can help; after all, an AI inhibits aromatase, but it goes a step further by reducing the body's total estrogen levels. Of course, and this cannot be overstressed, you must keep your doses at a responsible level; most will need at least 20mg per day for any anabolic promotion, with a maximum dosing of 50mg per day. It should be noted; if you've never used this steroid before, you should not start with a high end dose; start low and see how you respond.
Gone are the days where you could go to a doctor and get a script to buy steroids from a pharmacy, due to steroids being abused by athletes and bodybuilders they are now illegal. The only way to buy steroids now is on the black market, either from a dealer or from an online source. When steroids were legal and were purchased from a pharmacy, the only steroids you could get were pharmaceutical grade which were extremely high quality and worked far better than the “underground” stuff. Today pharmaceutical steroids are harder to get hold of and cost a lot more, for this reason many people opt for black market steroids which usually are lower quality and can cause infections due to them being produced in an non-sterile environment. Only injectable steroids need to cause concern when purchased from an underground lab, oral steroids don’t need to be produced in a sterile environment.
