While I cannot recommend anabolic steroid use for women at all, contrary to what many expect based on perception of men with regard to entirely differing side effects, Anadrol has been shown medically to have a low rate of virilization at doses considerably higher than needed for non-extreme female bodybuilding or strength training. A total dosage of 25 mg/day is only half of the minimum medical dose ever routinely used, but is remarkably effective for muscle anabolism in women. Even mg/day can be quite effective. As with any female use of oral anabolic steroids, divided doses across the day are probably safer than single-dose use for given total dosage per day, as peak levels will not be as high.
There are constant debates and many studies arguing the potential side effects for a user. There are studies showing that GW-501516 has caused cancer in rats while other studies refute it. The ONE study that was conducted that showed this issue was deeply flawed and refuted time and time again. GW-501516 dosing was not only abused but ran at insurmountable amounts of time within this study. When ran properly, it has actually been used as a cancer treatment. There are no known side effects associated with GW use and the only need to cycle off is so that one’s body does not acclimate or desensitize to use. There is no suppression, no toxicity and no other common side effects. This makes GW even more desirable amongst the bodybuilding community.
