💪 Consequences After Stopping Steroids – Positives & Negatives
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about steroids and one of the biggest ones being, “what are the consequences after stopping steroids”?
Basically, what happens short and long-term? Good and bad… positives and negatives?
And to begin with – why should you listen to me? Well, my doctorate degree is in pharmacology and endocrinology…
Pharmacology – which is the study of DRUGS. And I’ve also taken it a big step deeper with the study of nutraceuticals – herbs and plant extracts, since over 50% of drugs have been based on natural substances found in nature.
Endocrinology – which is the study of hormones.
So, this makes me a bit of an expert about this topic.
However, more importantly, I also have many years of real-life clinical experience dealing with professional athletes and bodybuilders, where I had to redo their entire drug protocols so they can be safer, healthier and actually get MORE results.
As far as the positive effects for HEALTHY men taking steroids – thus, not people who are sick or ill (AIDS or other wasting diseases), the only real positive effects for doing a cycle of steroids is that it will actually help you surpass your natural genetics.
Or more accurately, help you get to your “limit”, much faster.
And thus, after the cycle, you’ll actually be able to KEEP some of the “newly” grown “steroid-induced” muscle growth.
For example, you’ll gain 20 lbs of muscle on your 12 week cycle. You’ll end up losing 12 lbs and keep about 8 lbs of muscle. This is NEW muscle that would have taken you years to gain, but you fast forwarded the results and grew it all in 3 months.
However, this is assuming you do everything correctly — during and more importantly, AFTER your cycle. Which is another topic, for a different day.
This is the only REAL benefit.
Now, let’s move on the negatives.
Transient, Short-Term Side Effects
There are lots of short-term negative effects that will come and go.
Acne – some will get them, some won’t – it depends on genetics, your diet, hygiene and the TYPE of steroids you take. These will go away after your cycle. However, if you pick at them, they can leave acne scars and that’s the only “permanent” negatives.
Liver Stress – Your liver will be under extra stress with steroids, mainly the orals. Again, after your cycle, your liver enzymes will go back to normal.
Fatigue – many steroid will initially give you more energy. But over time, they can decrease your energy levels, especially the orals.
High Cholesterol – Almost all steroids will cause negative effects on your lipid levels. Orals are the worst, but so are most injectables that don’t convert to estrogen. Needless to say, your lipid and cholesterol levels will go back to normal after the cycle.
High Blood Pressure – Like cholesterol, this will go back to normal after your cycle. HOWEVER, if it’s elevated too much, for too long – you might get a stroke and it could cause renal and kidney problems. Which can result in kidney failure and dialysis. This does happen, so keep an eye on your blood pressure.
Long-Term, Permanent Side Effects
Hair Loss – Now, this is a real problem that NOBODY wants. However, this is caused by genetics and the type of steroids you take. Needless to say, even people with the best genetics, will lose hair when you take high doses of steroids, especially certain ones … for long periods of time.
Testicular Shrinkage – ALL steroids will cause this. There are ways around this, but it’s too complicated to get into in this video. They will grow back after your cycle.
Infertility – did you know that the male birth control is steroids, specifically testosterone and also nandrolone based steroids? This is because exogenous testosterone (from the OUTSIDE) causes your testicles to shrink and thus, stop producing sperm. Now, some guys can still get a woman pregnant even during a cycle, but generally no.
