Because the ultimate goal of a steroid cycle is to increase strength and muscle size, the associated spike in estrogen which accompanies steroids such as Testosterone is considered undesirable. In order to disassociate the two effects, two classes of drug are used. Medications such as Nolvadex or Clomid target the estrogen receptors. They make it more difficult for the estrogen to exert it’s influence within the body thus allowing the testosterone to act more freely. The second class is aromatase inhibitors such as Femara. They target the aromatase enzyme itself in order to prevent the production of estrogen in the first place. Sometimes, it’s not always clear which option you should go with or even what the differences are between the two. Lets clear that up a little.
Oxymetholone is not recommended for women since it causes many and, in part, irreversible virilizing symptoms such as acne, clitorial hypertrophy, deep voice, increased hair growth on the legs, beard growth, missed periods, increased-libido, and hair loss. It is simply too strong for the female organism and accordingly, it is poorly tolerated. Some national and international competing female athletes, however, do take it during their “mass building phase” and achieve enormous progress. Women who do not want to give up the distinct performance-enhancing effect of Oxymetholone but, at the same time, would like to reduce possible side effects caused by androgen, could consider taking half a tablet (25 mg) every two days, combined with a “mild” injectable anabolic steroid such as Primobolan Depot or deca durabolin. Ultimately, the use of Oxymetholone and its dosage are an expression of the female athlete’s personal willingness to take risks. In schools of medicine Anadrol is used in the treatment of bone marrow disorders and anemia with abnormal blood formation.
