Winstrol is one of the most popular and without a doubt one of the most well-known anabolic androgenic steroids of all time.
Winstrol is one of the few anabolic steroids that we can say with confidence is virtually useless as a mass promoting agent; when it comes to Winstrol, cutting and strength are its games. This makes Winstrol a longtime favorite of many gym rats looking to cut up for the beach, as well as a favorite for many competitive bodybuilders looking for a hard physique as they stand on stage. Beyond its basic nature, one thing that makes Winstrol so special is that it is one of the few anabolic steroids that can be used safely by many women.
The DHT related side-effects of Winstrol include:
- Acne:those who are sensitive to acne will always be the first to have a problem. Of course, even if you’re not sensitive, if your dosing goes to high you may find you have a problem. At any rate, in-order to ensure your skin stays as you desire, it is imperative that you keep it dry and clean at all times. When you become sweaty, if possible take a shower immediately; if this isn’t possible, change into a clean dry shirt and shower as soon as you can. You may find you need an extra shower or two every day if you are sensitive, but if you are truly sensitive you may find you have to avoid this and all DHT based anabolic steroids.
- Hair-Loss:when it comes to genetic predispositions, hair-loss is 100% dependent on this factor. Only those who are predisposed to male-pattern baldness will be at risk; such individuals were going to lose their hair anyway, but the Winstrol may speed up the process. If you are not predisposed, there’s no concern, but if you are, you may need to avoid DHT steroids. If you are predisposed, concerned about your hair-line and still want to supplement with Winstrol, you’ll need to consider the DHT suppressor Finasteride. Common Finasteride products such as Proscar and Propecia can offer a great deal of protection; however, you need to understand this protection is not guaranteed.
- Prostate Enlargement:as eluded to above, if you already have prostate issues you should not touch this steroid; in truth, you shouldn’t touch any anabolic steroid. For most men, if their prostate is healthy, if they supplement with responsible doses for responsible periods of time they will be fine; it takes a large DHT buildup to cause a problem. Even so, if problems do occur for any reason, you will need to discontinue use of all anabolic steroids immediately, and the use of Finasteride comes highly recommended. Six months of Finasteride therapy has been proven to significantly reduce prostate enlargement; in many cases completely.
- The side-effects of Winstrol can include high LDL cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol; in-fact, Winstrol is well-known for being one of the harshest steroids of all on lipid profiles. This is why it is imperative you have healthy lipid profiles before you begin use, and just as important, that you live a lifestyle that promotes their continuation.
