Hi everyone, I wondered if anyone could help. I had LS as a child from when I was a toddler up to my early teens. It was quite unheard of at the time – I had steroid creams etc and it actually cleared itself up during puberty. I’m still quite sensitive down there and have always found sex quite difficult, I assume because of the scar tissue. I’m now 16 weeks pregnant with my first baby. There’s not a lot of info out there about what happens when you’ve had scar tissue for your whole adult life and my midwife and consultant have no idea about it and are pressurising me to “just have a normal birth.” that would be my goal but I feel very uninformed and want to know if it’s medically likely that i would manage this without some quite serious damage. I’m 27. Has anyone else had a similar experience? I’m in the uk. Thank you!
I will be doing one more tested meet in January and then I am considering TRT which will disqualify me from competing natural. I am also 43 and honestly, at a point where I just may give up power-lifting all together, or go with testosterone. We will see…. I need to do more research, which is why I love your blog so much. You have been quiet lately. Um… I personally think anyone who has the audacity to call themselves Alpha-Destiny is a tool regardless of what they do. Also, for the record, I think he looks like shit. Steroids or not, I train with some of the worlds best (and a lot use, a lot don’t. Most of them are pretty honest about it.) and if this guy came into our gym with that name, he would most likely be laughed out of the place. Alpha-Destiny… I would kick my own ass if I went with that name. Sit down little fella… the grown-ups are talking.
What the old schoolers didn’t have included these:
1) the greater variety of steroids available now
2) the range of anti-estrogenics which counteract the side effects of higher doses of steroids, which allow steroids to be used in much larger amounts than the old schoolers could use without those side effects such as gynecomastia
3) the wide availability of Growth Hormone that is had today
4) the knowledge about insulin dosing for promoting growth
5) pressure to build the higher amounts of muscle mass required to win today’s contests
