When first administering steroids, a man will have an increase in sexual function. This unfortunately is only temporary as your body becomes used to the steroid in its system. With prolonged use of a steroid, eventually, the man will feel less sexual desire, and will be less capable of maintaining an erection. Luckily, this is only temporary as well and can even be totally prevented with the use of substance such as Gonakor and HCG. Also when the steroid use is discontinued, the body’s natural level of testosterone (like the immune system) will certainly be suppressed.
When looking at the androgenic side effects of Deca Durabolin, we will find they are highly dependent on genetics. If you are predisposed to male pattern baldness it is possible for hair loss to occur. It was going to occur at some point no matter what you did, but the Nandrolone hormone may speed it up. Those who are sensitive to acne may also find the hormone causes breakouts, but most should not have a problem. Even those who are genetically prone to male pattern baldness will rarely have an issue with this steroid. Remember, while androgenic its androgenicity is extremely mild. In fact, those who are sensitive to androgenic effects often find Nandrolone to be one of the most well-tolerated steroids. It’s important to note – some will be tempted to combat the androgenic side effects of Deca Durabolin with a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. The Nandrolone hormone is metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, but in this case, this metabolism reduces the hormone to dihydronandrolone (DHN) not dihydrotestosterone (DHT) as it does with testosterone. For this reason, the use of a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor will enhance the Nandrolone hormone’s androgenicity and should be avoided.
Of concern to any user of Winstrol during a cycle should be its intoxicating effect on the liver . The drug is a 17aa structured steroid , meaning it has been structured in a way which allows it to be orally bio-available, yet this has the negative effect of making Winstrol potentially harmful to the liver. It is therefore paramount the duration of a Winstrol cycle is limited, the dose of the drug is not excessive, the user does not stack it with other hepatotoxic compounds, does not drink alcohol whilst on cycle, and does not use Winstrol if they have an underlying medical condition which effects the livers health. There are supplements available which also help protect the liver (Milk Thistle, Liv-52 etc), and these would be advisable during any Winstrol cycle .
