How To Protect Yourself With Gyno Steroids
Posted by cpaddon on November 10, 2012
Gyno is a very serious problem with males who take anabolic androgenic steroids.
What is Gyno exactly?
“Gynecomastia” is the technical name for what people in the fitness refer to as “Gyno”
Gyno is a seriously abnormal development of mammory glands, in plain English – it means you will grow boobs. That’s right, you’ll have a nice set, probably bigger than your girlfriends.
How does gyno happen?
Gyno typically occurs when there is a quick spike in free testosterone in the body. When people inject anabolic steroids into their bodys (testosterone is the best example) if the proper ester isn’t used (and even when it is) your body will respond by converting all the extra testosterone into estrogen, causing breast growth a.k.a. Gyno.
Symptoms of Gyno
Severe swelling around the pecs a few weeks into your cycle usually is a pretty strong sign of gyno. If you see these signs, start your pre-planned treatment & PCT immediately, and stop your cycle. It is not worth risking continuing your cycle unless of course you want to spend $5,000 and undergo gyno surgery in just a few months
What can you do to prevent Gyno
Injecting testosterone always runs the risk of developing gyno. Some guys get it, some guys don’t. There are however a few ways you can protect yourself and minimize your exposure to gyno
- Long estered testosterone (enanthate, cyp)
- Having SERMS on hand
- Don’t prolong cycles
1 Taking short estered test dramatically increases your chances of Gyno
2 Having SERMS on hand is highly recommended, and should be taken the second you’re suspicious
3 Cycles that run for any longer than 10-12 weeks are highly prone to Gyno
Do your research
Do your research before starting any cycle. Steroids are a very safe compound in the right hands. In the wrong situation it can cost you more than just money, it can cost you your health. Referring to a doctor is always your best bet.
