In studies with oral contraceptives (birth control pills) containing estrogens, cigarette smoking during the use of estrogens was shown to cause an increased risk of serious side effects affecting the heart or blood circulation, such as dangerous blood clots, heart attack, or stroke. The risk increased as the amount of smoking and the age of the smoker increased. Women aged 35 and over were at greatest risk when they smoked while using oral contraceptives containing estrogens. It is not known if this risk exists with the use of androgens and estrogens for symptoms of menopause. However, smoking may make estrogens less effective.
Anabolic steroids differ in their characteristics, which means there are steroids that are only suitable for specific uses. For instance, Trenbolone is not recommended for bulking but it is an outstanding fat burner. This makes it perfect for a lean mass cycle or a cutting cycle. Always take the side effects of a particular compound into consideration whenever you plan a stack. Do not combine anabolic steroids that show similar side effects. For example, never combine Anapolon and Dianabol because they are already quite toxic and if you combine them, the toxicity will increase exponentially and cause serious damage to your body.
Stanozolol is one of the few anabolic steroids female athletes can use with not only success but in an often highly well-tolerated manner. Standard Winstrol doses for almost any female athlete will fall in the 10mg per day range and while this may seem low, as women are more sensitive to the hormone it will provide the benefits they are after. Some women in physique sports will go as high as 20mg every day but this really opens the door to potential virilization effects and is not recommended. If 10mg per day is not enough to provide what you need the athlete might want to consider other steroids as part of a cycle or stack; other solid options for the female performance athlete often include Anavar , Primobolan Depot and many of the SERMs and thyroid hormones as well as HGH .
