Anabolic Steroids for Women

Question: I have read your 13 part series of Steroid Q&A through newsletters I
receive by e-mail. Very informative and interesting. I have enjoyed and learned
from them wanted to say thank you.
However I do have a few questions for you, concerning steroids, if you don�t
I am a 40-year-old woman; I have 5 children and have been married for going on
25 years. I am very petite weighing 115 pounds. I am very active and have been
all my life. I wear a size "0" in jeans. I would like to try and compete in
female bodybuilding. Need advice on the cycle I was on.
I was taking 40mg of D-Bol per day for 8 weeks; I took Deca at 100 mg every
other week for 8 weeks. I also took Winny at 20 mg per day for 8 weeks. I seen a
very huge improvement in my gains especially my strength. Once I started this
cycle my leg press went from a mere 240 pounds to 540 pounds at 8 reps. I was
truly impressed. Guess I need to know if I can start this same cycle over again
or if I should try another cycle and if so what would be good for a woman of my
age and goals???
Thank you for your time and consideration. Keep up the good work and fantastic
Answer: 40 years old, married 25 years, 5 children and wanting to compete in
female bodybuilding? To top it off you wear a size "0" in jeans? You, madam,
have what it takes to go the distance in any endeavor you opt to undertake!
The female athlete is, as I have said many times prior, a whole different
species (and fascinating) when it comes to chemistry. The questions of short and
long term goals, contraceptives used and personal sensitivity to androgens has
to be taken into consideration before any thoughts of structuring a AAS protocol
Well Hung Women?
First I must warn that as a rule that AAS like testosterone, trenbolone,
methoxymetholone (AD-50) methandrostenolone (D-Bol) and other high androgenics
have a significant risk for triggering masculinizing side-effects in women. This
would include facial and body hair growth, deepening of voice and clitoral
enlargement (the last has some benefits upon libido�if within reason). If this
is not a concern, then even still the steps to planned progressive cycling are
paramount to eventual results.
Beginning with a very high anabolic/low androgenic protocol provides a good
structure to gain enough information to allow for more specific and
individualistic construction. Something as simple as 28 days employing only
Oxandrolone (Anavar) at a dosage of 5-10mg 3xd (Oxandrolone has a half-life of
about 8 hours and the goal is to maintain constant circulatory levels in most
AAS protocols). This is a high anabolic but very low androgenic AAS and the
chances or masculinizing side effects are quite low.
Ladies, Keep The Diet Simple
With a high protein intake (about 1.5g per pound of bodyweight daily) and a diet
that provides 18-20 calories per pound of bodyweight daily, this protocol should
result in an addition of 4-8 pounds of new mostly lean mass.
If the need to buy mustache wax failed to arise the next protocol would be a bit
more aggressive and mass orientated.

A Quick Summery about a woman's steroid cycle
Stanozolol (Winstrol) is a derivative of DHT though it has some progestin
receptor stimulating qualities. For the ladies the result is a hardening effect
with few masculinizing side effects in all but very rare cases.
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca) is a very high anabolic/low-moderate androgenic AAS
that reduces the androgenic effects of the more mild DHT (dehydrotestosterone)
derivatives by acting as a weak DHT receptor blocker to some degree. This is due
to the fact that nandrolone is reduced by the 5-Alpha-reductase enzyme to
nor-DHT instead of the much more powerful DHT. The result is similar to the
actions of Nolvadex in that it fits into the target receptor but does little to
activate it while blocking more powerful derivatives from merging.
If this protocol failed to cause a woman to pee standing up the next logical AAS
addition would be the same protocol structure with the inclusion of Oxandrolone
(5-10mg 3xd) or Boldenone (50mg 2 times weekly).
Female HPTA Regeneration?
Naturally the need for post-cycle HPTA regeneration is not needed in women since
they do not have testes. (Hey, no joke, I actually had a woman who complained
that I had written nothing on the subject of Female HPTA regeneration). Though
there is the consideration of adrenal androgen production natural to the ladies.
As a rule 2 weeks of DHEA 50mg/d normalizes this after this type of protocol
The goal is to make steps in progress with a specific intent in mind not
guessing and hoping not to run into irreversible negative side effects.
