This is the scenario: a guy, say age 21, becomes serious about gaining muscle. He’s 5′ 10″, 7″ wrists, 9″ ankles, average genetics for muscle size-and-proportioned. He’s played sports, but never done more than an occasional resistance workout. Now, he begins a good training-eating-and-resting program. With his genetics, he has the potential for naturally gaining 45 pounds of lean mass if he stays consistent with progressive training/proper eating for a continuous 3 to 4 years.
But, about three months after beginning his training, he starts taking steroids. He does three steroid cycles in the following 18 months, and includes proper post-cycle therapy. That entire time, he’s continuing to consistently train and eat properly. Before the end of two years, he’s gained 45 pounds of lean mass (which with steroids, by the way, is not necessarily typical but neither improbable). At that point, he permanently quits using steroids, but he does continue properly training and eating for another two years. At the end of four years, he carries the same 45 pounds of lean mass.
The Stanozolol hormone can be one of the few anabolic androgenic steroids women can use safely; while it is not the absolute mildest in nature for a woman it is up high on the list. Issues regarding the steroids hepatic nature as well as its effects on lipid profiles remain the same with women but the female athlete must also necessarily be aware of virilization. For the female athlete, the Winstrol side effects revolving around virilization will be the most concerning as such effects can destroy a womans femininity. Common virilization effects include a deepening of the vocal chords, body-hair growth and enlargement of the clitoris. The majority of women who supplement with the Stanozolol hormone, if they keep the dose low and use for very short periods will be fine. If you are a female Winstrol user and you begin to notice virilization symptoms simply discontinue use and you will be fine; nothing will change. It is when the symptoms are ignored, use is continued and the symptoms are allowed to set in that many women develop a problem; remember, man or woman responsible use is always your best friend.
