There are tenets that have been developed by those who are experienced in the use of steroids either on a personal level or from a medical experience point of view. For you who is contemplating whether to take the step to steroid use or not it will serve you a lot of good if you can simply try hard to access this information so that you are better equipped to deal with the consequences that will result from using these medications. The first concern that most experts have has to do with the age at which most users first expose themselves to these medications. Just what is the right age to do so? The actual recommendation is that you stay away from steroids as much as possible. If you must use them make sure that you are above the age of 25. This is not out of spite for your youth but quite directly opposite; it is the responsible thing to do.
When you are below this age your body is in the process of developing into a mature form. It does this through the secretion of adequate amounts of both testosterone and the growth hormones. When you introduce steroid medication to the body what you are actually doing is denying the body from reaching its natural capacities. While you may say that you are providing it with sufficient quantities of testosterone I dare ask, what is better for you? Is it the natural God-given hormone or is it that which is produced in some distant laboratory that you know full well that it is bound to disrupt certain balances in the body? One of the greatest consequences is that of stunted growth. Steroid medications will usually place a clamp on the growth plates of the large bones. The entire skeleton framework will be hindered from growing as required and you will most probably have a stunted height.
Well, height has never stopped anyone from enjoying a full life, so you may console yourself. The conscience will never forgive you for making that choice; you will know that things could have turned out different if only you would have let nature take its own course. Do not think that this is all that you will have to live with. What if you lose the ability to reproduce? Will you be able to live with the fact that as a lady or gentleman you denied yourself the chance to sire a perfectly healthy child? I think not. Your hormone balances will go haywire. What a shame that you as a lady will have to live with the risk of having facial hair and in other places that are best left to fertile imagination…quite something to think about huh?
Okay. Say that it is vital that you get on this medication, what are the right steps that you should take? First go to a trusted and qualified physician and let him or her give you a thorough medical checkup. You should always remember that you have to take regular blood tests just to be sure that the steroids are reacting properly with your body. You may nip some unwanted ‘benefits’ in the bud before they take off!
