Prohormone and Steroid Side Effects

This can be a hard question to answer, since side effects vary from person to person and from compound to compound. Some compounds are known for having a high incident of side effects, while others have a reputation for being much milder.

When you take a prohormone or steroid, it artificially increases testosterone levels. This increase in testosterone causes the body to react a certain way, and it's this reaction that can spawn numerous side effects. Side effects can also be caused by the stress the body undergoes processing the prohormone or steroid, which is often teh case when it comes to oral compounds, as they must be processed through the liver.

Altering the hormonal balance in men has the potential to produce:
  • Hair Loss
  • Lower sex drive
  • Lower sperm count
  • Breast tissue development
  • Testicle shrinking
It might seem strange that while mebn experience some feminizing effects, women experience the opposite::
  • Enlargement of the clitorus
  • Changes to the menstrual cycle
  • Voice changes
  • Reduction in breast size
  • Hair loss
  • Growth of facial hair
In addition to gender specific sides, both men and women could experience:
  • Oily skin and acne
  • Cardiovascular disease due to increased cholesterol levels, raining the risk of strokes and heart attacks
  • Liver damage
  • Adverse Psychological effects (anger, depressions, etc.
Most of these sides tend to go away when one discontinues use, but some (like hair loss or voice changes) can be permanent.

"Smart" use can minimize and reduce the risk of these sides. Cycling (balancing use versus non-use over time), stacking (taking more than one prohormone or steroid at a time), bridging (moving from one prohormone or steroid right to another), and proper post cycle therapy can all combine to enhance the positive benefits of prohormone and steroid use while minimizing the negative.

Prohormones and steroids aren't like protein or creatine. To properly use them takes research and planning. If you're thinking about taking a prohormone or steroid, do you research on how to take it, how much to take, how long to use, and the best way to restore your body's balance once you come off cycle.

Like any substance, improper use and abuse gives rise to horror stories of horrible sides and even deaths. Such result can be avoided with education and propoer planning. Don't be an example of a steroid side effect gone wild!
