As for men, there is a risk of hair-loss and acne, but the odds are in your favor. If you lose any hair, it will only happen if you are predisposed to male-pattern baldness. If you’re not predisposed, you will not lose the first hair. As for acne, only those who are extremely sensitive to acne will have a problem; even so, as this is such a mild steroid very few will fall prey. Beyond acne and hair-loss, there is the issue of testosterone suppression. It is a common misconception by many male performance enhancers that Oxandrolone does not suppress testosterone; they are dead wrong. However, it will suppress it far less than most steroids, but even so, some testosterone should be applied in exogenous form. If you supplement with testosterone when supplementing with Anavar, the testosterone suppression will be of no concern.
It has some mild side effects associated with it as well. Side effects occur when you take it for a very long period of time and in more quantity. Major drawback of Anavar is that it is too costly, although available in black market but one cannot be so sure of the authenticity of it bought from there. As it is DHT and due to this hair loss and acne can occur. But hair loss only in men who have got this hair loss disease genetically transmitted. There could be high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels but only for those who are not living a healthy life style and these diseases are not transmitted genetically to the users as well. Due to the non aromatizing nature of Anavar it has taken side effects of water retention and Gynecomastia out of the equation.
Women have a greater sensitivity to the effects of Anavar than men do since their bodies process the Oxandrolone hormone differently. While neither men nor women will see massive gains on an Anavar cycle, women will see a greater effect on their bodies as the gains that do take place will be valuable lean muscle tissue in greater quantities than men. It can be more difficult for women to lose body fat than men, so using Anavar while in a cutting phase can greatly aid the process. Even though it is an anabolic steroid, which are generally off limits to women due to their potentially damaging nature, the effects of Anavar are very mild and safe when used properly.
