Side Effects of Steroids

anabolic steroids

Anabolic steroids and growth hormone are very popular nowadays, but you should think again (and again and again) if you are considering to use them. Many bodybuilders and even casual everyday people use them to get in shape, to grow bigger and stronger, to follow some kind of idol, well that’s wrong – what else can I say. Steroids are illegal for reason you know… you need prescription to buy them in drug stores. But you can still get them in black market which is risky! Steroids and growth hormone is popular because you can reach your goal a lot faster AND you can go even further, look at those athletes in Mr. Olympia.

In sports steroids are illegal to use because of the advantages they give. But even then athletes are trying to find new ways how to gain strength, gain muscle, cut down fat and much more! They want to be successive by any costs.

Ok.. I’m too rough with steroids – steroids sometime are good guys too… Steroids are used for the treatment of different conditions such as AIDS, cancer and some more. Steroids promote body a natural strength and possibilities to fight diseases.

Like every drug, steroids have side effects and IF you want to use steroids you MUST consult your doctor before starting your steroids cycle (bulking up or gaining strength – that doesn’t matter really). Steroids can cause long term negative health consequences like:
  • Liver damage – this is real and this is what will happen. Oral steroids cause the most damage to liver. But injectable steroids have other minuses… liver failure is the worst that can happen.
  • Steroids increase the level of testosterone in body ( this is why they help to gain strength and build mass so ‘’easily’’ ) but the overproduction of testosterone can cause aggressiveness, low sex drive and low sperm count.
  • Steroids increase water retention too; this leads to an anabolic state which is why athletes (especially bodybuilders) use them. But fluid retention increases workload on the heart, therefore blood pressure increases and this can be a serious problem and even cause of a heart attack.
  • Finally all steroids change into estrogen and this is why steroids can cause your breasts grow larger (the first sign is soreness in nipples).
Growth hormone is as dangerous as steroids (if used improperly, of course). Growth hormones activate the components in body that cause the muscles to grow.

It’s possible to have large muscles, and a totally ripped body without using steroids or growth hormones. Sure, you will become bigger quicker, but introducing these substances into your body will have negative long-term effects.
