Another major benefit associated with an Anavar only cycle is the reduced risk of side effects for women. Whereas many men will pair their Anavar with testosterone or even other anabolic steroids to enjoy the synergistic effects, women do not need to do this. In fact, an Anavar only cycle is a phenomenal way for many women to gain the muscle mass they crave after they have plateaued with diet and exercise alone. Women can start with a dose of 10mg per day and work up to 40mg per day depending on their goals. While the risk of virilization is indeed lower, it still exists – especially at higher doses. Virilization can be defined as the development of male traits and characteristics. Some of the symptoms are:
SARMs or by full name Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators are
the class of the therapeutic compounds which have the similar properties to the
anabolic agents but also with reduced androgenics properties. This type of the
property allows the SARMs the benefit of the androgen-receptors specificity,
the tissue selectivity, and lack of the steroid-related consequences.
Some of the potential side effects of the anabolic steroids used include acne, breast tissue development, liver damage, and the shrinking of testicle to males, and the deepening of voice, the growth of hair on the upper back, face, stomach, and the abnormal menstrual cycles to females. Actually SARMs have an ability of differentiating between androgenic and anabolic activities , and generally this provides a potential for the therapeutic opportunities in the variety of the medical conditions which include muscle-wasting diseases, cancer, osteoporosis, and hypogonadism.
The Oxandrolone hormone does not carry any estrogenic related side effects. It does not aromatize and cannot lead to gynecomastia or water retention due to increases in estrogen levels. It further carries no progestin related activity, which again supports no estrogenic related side effects. Due to water retention being impossible with this steroid, this will decrease the risk of high blood pressure. Excess water retention can promote high blood pressure. Some steroids that do not aromatize can lead to high blood pressure, such as Trenbolone , but Anavar is rarely associated with this trait.
