Anavar Side-Effects

Anabolic steroid side-effects; whenever the topic of steroids comes up, side-effects are often in the mix; for some people thats all theyll talk about. Some will go as far as to spout off possible side-effects in a way that ignores possibility and implies assurance, and further, theyll list every last effect from every steroid regardless of the steroid being discussed. If thats not bad enough, many on the anti-steroid side of the aisle will often speak of side-effects that are of an impossible nature; not only with the steroid being discussed but of all anabolic androgenic steroids. This is the way it is, and it makes finding the truth at times an extremely daunting task, and such can apply to some of the most basic anabolic steroids of all, even Anavar. Anavar represents one of the most popular steroids of all, and a lot of its popularity stems from its extremely mild nature. Absolutely, there are possible Anavar side-effects, but the possible Anavar side-effects are so mild and controllable most healthy adults can supplement problem free. The key to such supplementation is twofold; education and responsible use, and when we say any healthy adult, you bet, we mean any healthy adult man or woman. This gives Anavar a special place in the ranks of anabolic steroids, as it is one of the few that can be safely used by women, and while Anavar side-effects are possible we will find they are extremely rare; lets see what we can find.

Primary Factors:

Before we discuss the possible Anavar side-effects, there are three important issues that must be addressed, and all three must be recognized anytime you discuss the side-effects of any anabolic steroid. Without these three factors taken into consideration, the overall discussion becomes worthless, and this will make sense shortly. First and foremost is individual response; we are all unique individuals, and while there are basic elements that hold true with all of us there are also unique differences. For example, some of us can drink milk while others cant, but just because some cant doesnt mean we all cant. From individual response, the next consideration is our current state of health; our state of health before supplementation will play a role in-regard to how we respond as it pertains to Anavar side-effects, and the healthier we are, in most cases, the more positive the response will be. Then were left with the third and most commonly ignored factor; probability. Yes, there are possible Anavar side-effects, but there is a question that must always be asked; if there are possible adverse effects what is the probability of each one occurring? This is a question that is often asked when any subject is discussed, but when its an anabolic steroid for reasons that make no sense it is often left off the table. In any case, when it comes to Anavar you will find that for the vast majority of healthy adults the probability is extremely low when it comes to most side-effects, and with the other effects, while theyll still be low they will largely revolve around genetic factors.

Legitimate Anavar Side-Effects:

There are six possible legitimate Anavar side-effects, that can occur, but with responsible use by healthy adults the probability will remain low for most. Of course, we must define responsible use and this largely revolves around dosing and duration of use as well as other items that may be stacked in conjunction, but our overall lifestyle will also play a role. In any case, we have listed the possible six Anavar side-effects blow a long with everything you need to know.

Acne due to the DHT nature of this steroid will only be a concern to those who are sensitive to acne very unlikely for those who are not sensitive even for sensitive individuals the odds are in your favor due to this steroids mild nature keeping your skin dry and clean at all times is very important, always change your shirt if it becomes sweaty and if you need an extra shower a day do not forgo it

Hair-Loss due to the DHT nature of this steroid will only be a concern for those who are predisposed to male-pattern baldness if you are predisposed you were already going to lose your hair, but the DHT build up may speed it up if this is a concern, Finasteride use can protect you, but as it is an androgen suppressor caution is advised if you are not predisposed to male-pattern baldness you will not lose the first hair on your head

Enlarged Prostate due to the DHT nature of this steroid large build ups of DHT can enlarge the prostate men who supplement responsibly and have a healthy prostate will almost never have a problem due to this steroid being so mild men who already have an enlarged prostate should not supplement if a problem occurs, you will find Finasteride to be your saving grace as six months of Finasteride therapy has been shown to reduce prostate enlargement significantly

High Blood Pressure almost unheard of but there is a slight possibility if you are genetically predisposed to the condition living a lifestyle that promotes a healthy reading will protect most people if your reading is already at an unhealthy state, you should not supplement

High Cholesterol almost unheard of but there is a slight possibility if you are genetically predisposed to the condition living a lifestyle that promotes a healthy reading will protect most people if your reading is already at an unhealthy state, you should not supplement

Virilization this refers to the masculinization of females such effects can include body-hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement tremendously rare in women who supplement with low doses if problems occur for any reason, if use is discontinued at their onset they will dissipate if problems occur and are ignored, you may find they become permanent


There are two Anavar side-effects that are guaranteed in men, and of the two, one will affect us all; men and women. The primary effect is liver toxicity; Anavar is a C17-aa anabolic steroid, and as such carries a hepatotoxic nature, but of all C17-aa steroids it is extremely mild in this regard. If your liver is not healthy, you should not supplement, but if its in a state of good health you can supplement without any damage. With supplementation, your liver enzyme values will increase, but they will return to normal if you follow the right steps; again, this is assuming your liver was healthy to begin with. First and foremost, keep your doses at a reasonable level, but beyond this factor your lifestyle choices will play the biggest role. It is imperative you avoid excess alcohol consumption, as such consumption is far more damaging to the liver; in-fact, avoiding all alcohol is a pretty good idea; after all, alcohol in no way promotes performance. Beyond alcohol, avoiding all over the counter (OTC) medications is advised where possible; many OTC meds are far more hepatotoxic than Anavar, and use should be limited to where only necessary. If you follow these steps, you will be fine; again, this is assuming youre a healthy adult with a healthy liver.

Then we have the final of all Anavar side-effects, and its one men need to pay close attention to as its often misunderstood. The use of anabolic steroids will suppress your natural testosterone production; the suppression will vary from steroid to steroid, but it will occur. In the case of Anavar, it will not suppress at an extreme rate, but it will suppress enough to warrant some sort of remedy if a low testosterone condition is to be avoided. For this reason, most men will find the use of exogenous testosterone to be advised; the form is inconsequential so as long as you are providing enough testosterone to meet your bodys needs. If testosterone is not used, some other promotion must be provided; Proviron can be a good choice, but nothing will ever be as effective as exogenous testosterone. In any case, you will notice your testicles will atrophy during supplementation; however, once use is discontinued and all the hormones have cleared your system your natural testosterone production will begin again, and your testicles will return to their normal size. As a side note; testicular atrophy does not mean they will disappear; it simply refers to a loss of fullness.
