Side Effects of Testoviron
While undeniably a high quality and one of the best anabolic steroids you'll ever use, unfortunately Testoviron is not without potential problems. The side effects of Testoviron are very real; however, fortunately they largely fall into the realm of possible and not guaranteed. By understanding the side effects of Testoviron, most healthy adult men will find they can avoid them each and every time, but it will take some effort on your part. Of course, you will find this effort to be extremely rewarding; after all, if the side effects of Testoviron become a non-issue all you have to concern yourself with are the benefits. Through our discussion, we want to look at the side effects of Testoviron, what causes them and of course what we can do about them in-order to ensure our success.
The Primary Side Effects of Testoviron:
The primary side effects of Testoviron largely surround its ability to promote an increase in estrogen. As a testosterone, this hormone has the ability to convert to estrogen through the aromatase process and when estrogen levels rise it can lead to problems. Of such problems one of the most common is gynecomastia or male breast enlargement as the estrogen hormone attaches to the receptors in the chest. In-order to combat this issue we have two options, the use of a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) or an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI). SERM's like Nolvadex function by attaching to the receptors in the chest thereby preventing estrogen from attaching and as a result no gynecomastia. Even so, with high levels of aromatase activity SERM's are often not enough and in such cases only AI's like Arimidex will get the job done. AI's function by inhibiting the aromatase process and go a step further by reducing the body's total estrogen levels.
AI's are without question the best combatant of gynecomastia and they can also protect you from water retention. Of all the side effects of Testoviron, excess water retention is the most common, and of all the side effects of Testoviron it is probably the easiest to avoid. As excess estrogen is the culprit, using an AI takes care of this problem, but controlling your diet is also important and an issue often overlooked. If you overeat and this is very common during off-season bulking phases you're going to hold water. Use an AI and control your diet and you should be able to control water retention.
When we control water retention, we also control another possible side effect of Testoviron and that is high blood pressure as it is a result of excess water retention. This can make that little AI very important as high blood pressure can never be deemed healthy; however, that little AI comes with a warning. AI's have the ability to negatively affect your lipid profiles, and for that reason you must keep a close eye on your cholesterol whenever they're in use. It is imperative you do not have high cholesterol before using Testoviron just as it is imperative you don't have high blood pressure, and it's extremely important you live in a way that promotes the continuation of healthy readings.
Secondary Side Effects of Testoviron:
When the testosterone hormone collides with the 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of steroids it causes the testosterone hormone to convert into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). When DHT levels rise this can lead to three side effects of Testoviron that are far more genetically based than the primary side effects of Testoviron. For example, DHT has the ability to deteriorate the hair follicles and men who are predisposed to male pattern baldness may find they lose their hair a little faster. If you are not predisposed you are not at risk. If you are predisposed and concerned about your hairline, many men find the 5-alpha reductase inhibitor Finasteride to offer a lot of protection as it inhibits the DHT conversion. There is no guarantee this will work, but it does for a lot of men.
Finasteride can also be useful in combating another side effect, prostate enlargement, the least common but most dangerous of all the side effects of Testoviron. Due to massive DHT buildups, this makes responsible use imperative and with such use most men will not have a problem so as long as there's not an underlying issue. In any case, you will need to keep an eye on your prostate during supplementation and if for any reason enlargement occurs consider the use of a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor.
Then we're left with the last one and of all the secondary side effects of Testoviron this is the most common, acne. Once again due to a buildup in DHT, the best thing you can do is keep your skin clean and dry at all times. Men who are genetically sensitive to acne will be the first to have a problem but will find it's very easy to avoid in most cases if a little effort is given. Of course there will be exceptions, there will be those who are so sensitive breakouts will occur regardless of the effort given and in such cases dermatological treatment is the only option.
Suppressive Side Effects of Testoviron:
As an exogenous testosterone compound the side effects of Testoviron include the suppression of natural testosterone and as a result testicular atrophy. While true, these are largely non-issues; after all, your body is receiving all the testosterone it needs through the corresponding Testoviron injections. Further, once use is discontinued and all the exogenous hormones have cleared your system your testicles will return to their normal size, as natural testosterone production will have begun once again. It should be noted; recovery of natural testosterone is assuming no damage was done to the HPTA while on cycle and no prior low testosterone condition existed.
