There are also some who complain of joint pain when using Winstrol. As a steroid that does not aromatize there will be no water retention but the “dry feeling” may not be what many think it is. Most who use the steroid will be physique athletes or gym rats during a cutting phase. They will also typically add it into a plan late in the diet once they’re already lean. Typically, when you become very lean, bodybuilding lean, this makes the joints a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol this discomfort could potentially exist. As for pro athletes who have nearly every last steroid at their disposal, remember, if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports so many athletes wouldn’t make it a primary and favorite choice. In fact, the combo of Winstrol with low doses of Nandrolone is a very common stack among many athletes, and this stack will greatly eliminate any potential joint discomfort should it exist.
Females can have a very hard time with anabolic steroid supplementation, as many anabolic steroids can lead to virilization symptoms. Of course, there are some anabolic steroids that carry a much lower rate of virilization, and while Winstrol is not the lowest it is on the list. There will be many women who tolerate this hormone quite well, and as such display no adverse reactions. Of course, as we're all unique individuals some will have a problem even at a low dose. In most cases, a dosing of 10mg every other day will be all the Winstrol any woman needs; some will tolerate 20mg every other day, but understand this significantly increases the risk of virilization. At any rate, use should in most cases never surpass 6 weeks, and regardless of dose you must exercise caution. If at any time you begin to show negative symptoms, simply discontinue use immediately and you'll see them quickly fade away. If you fail to heed to this warning, you may find the symptoms make a permanent home.
