Effects of steroid Dianabol
The drug is an essential part of any mass gainer course and pairs well with other steroids. It can be used alone or in combination with other medications.
The drug has long proven its effectiveness, the confirmation of which is in great demand in the professional environment of athletes and bodybuilding enthusiasts. Many newbies start getting acquainted with steroids with this drug.
A distinctive feature of Dianabol is its strong anabolic activity, due to increased protein synthesis, a rapid set of muscle mass is formed. Androgenic activity is quite low – this avoids androgenic side effects.
The growth of strength and muscle mass is due to the stronger anabolic and androgenic effect of anabolics due to the similarity in chemical structure with 17-alpha-methyltestosterone. Those who do not use steroids notice a noticeable increase in muscle mass of around 1-2 kg per week in about 6 weeks. The athlete’s weight increases not only due to muscle hypertrophy, but also due to water retention in the body.
The positive effects:
- Promotes rapid muscle growth
- Increase strength performance
- Skeleton reinforcement
- It has fat burning properties
- Increases appetite
Despite the speed of mass gain, it cannot be called qualitative. During the use of the drug, water retention occurs in the body, and the form turns out to be watery, without a clear relief pattern. Many see this as a disadvantage, for me it is an advantage for gaining mass. High weights and loads are used, and the excess fluid in the body qualitatively lubricates the joints, thereby reducing the risk of injury.
It is important to distinguish between mass gain and recovery periods, they are two different tasks and therefore different preparations should be used. For me, methane is one of the main drugs used to gain mass, along with testosterone.
Possible side effects of Dianabol
If you abuse this steroid, there will be unwanted side effects.
Mammary glands (gynecomastia) are glandular, fatty tissue is hypertrophic. Manifestations of such a side effect indicate the conversion of the anabolic part into estrogens. To avoid such an effect, it should be treated with Nolvadex, Clomid.
The toxic effect on the liver is associated with the methyl group at the α-17 position, since the drug is not eliminated in the liver. To avoid this effect, hepatoprotective agents are used after the use of steroids, PCT. The best option for liver drainage is a combination of methane tablets with an injectable steroid, using nandrolone, for example.
Water retention will manifest as an increase in muscle. When the process of taking steroids is completed, the liquid will be combined and the weight will decrease. This reversal phenomenon is reduced by competent post-cycle anti-estrogen therapy.
There will be masculinization among women. This anabolic is not suitable for women. They will present the characteristic secondary sexual characteristics of males:
- Body hair will grow.
- The fat layer is reduced.
- Muscle tissue will grow.
- The sound becomes loud.
If the steroid is abused, the clitoris increases, the volume of the mammary glands decreases, the monthly cycle is disturbed, the level of calcium in the blood rises, and other endocrine disorders appear.
Other side effects are characterized by:
- hypertension. It will be eliminated by antiandrogens and antihypertensives.
- Increased sexual desire during treatment, decreased libido after treatment.
- hair loss.
- myocardial hypertrophy.
- testicular atrophy.
- Impaired liver function.
- pain in the bones.
- tendency to bleed.

The risk of side effects will increase after an anabolic cycle.
