Myths about the dangers of steroids

The decrease in the length of the penis;

Brain damage;

Inhibition of the secretion of own (endogenous) testosterone – an inevitable consequence of taking AAS. This is how human hormonal system works. If we introduce the hormone from the outside – its secretion in the body slows down or stops altogether as unnecessary.


Reducing the secretion of testosterone is reversible. To minimize damage of steroids, it is necessary to use HCG on long cycles. This will prevent testicular atrophy.

To restore the level of own testosterone, PCT is carried out with the use of antiestrogens (Clomiphene, Tamoxifen).


A fairly common side effect. Most often, this side effect occurs when using high-androgen drugs.
