Focusing on the positives is a very good approach to deal with issues in life, not the best course of action when it comes to choosing drugs for body building. The user should make it a point to be aware of all the side effects reported and consult a medical practitioner regarding the same. Weighing the side effects with regard to its seriousness should be a deciding factor on whether to use the drug or not. Among the major negative repercussions of using anabolic steroids is erectile dysfunction. Care should be taken to identify and isolate drugs which have this side effect. We will look at this issue with regard to a very common drug called Methandrostenolone. 

Methandrostenolone can be found in an injectable form however Dianabol is the oral form and many bodybuilders will only use this type of steroid.It is mostly used for size and strength during the bulk stage of training. It is a fast acting steroid with a half-life of about 5 hours; this makes it one of the quickest acting oral anabolic steroid. It can be used at the start of a cycle to quickly start your training and can be used mid/end of the cycle to help combat plateaus in muscle gains. Between 20mg-50mgs is the recommended daily dosage and it is recommended that at the start of the cycle that you start off low to get your body used to it. Anything over 100mgs per day is regarded as highly dangerous to your health and causes serious erectile dysfunction among other ill effects. 


Similar to testosterone, methandrostenolone is a very strong steroid that brings about some adverse side effects. Being fairly oestrogenic, methandrostenolone can lead to concerns like gynecomastia during the early cycles of intake, as this is when the higher doses are used. It can also lead to water retention which can increase body mass and is undesirable. This can cause a bloated look and this is caused by the hormones changing into oestrogen. However, many physique athletes try to counteract methandrostenolone’s oestrogenic side effects with anti-oestrogen drugs which are fairly expensive. Using Methandrostenolone can cause a strain on the cardiovascular system. 

It is a common side effect for most anabolid steroids. What happens is that the good cholesterol (HDL) in the body is reduced and the bad cholesterol (LDL) in the body is increased.This causes an increased risk of developing arteriosclerosis. The degree of the risk depends on the dose being taken. Liver damage is another imminent threat in case of regular users. Certain case where it causes serious erectile dysfunction has also been reported. Other typical side effects include increased ebum production, causing oily skin and acne, excessive hair growth, male pattern baldness if user is already predisposed genetically for this. The significant benefits of using Methandrostenolone should also be considered when you take a final decision on whether to use this medication.  Responsible use without adopting over dosage can be helpful in minimizing any potential damage that we should be wary of.
