Roids- Effects on Women

 By: Roid Reddy
They are known by several names; roids, steroids, anabolic steroids, anabolic substances, gear, juices, etc. Whatever name you call them, they are powerful muscle-building chemicals and are almost ingrained in the brains of any bodybuilding enthusiasts or athletes.

Although roids are banned substances athletes and sportspersons continue to use them as performance enhancers.

Roids have detrimental effects on the overall health of an individual and in particular they seem to have greater adverse effects on weaker sex.

The example of female bodybuilders shows the dark side of the roids usage and steroids per se. Women bodybuilders who sport muscular developed body with the use of steroids show died feline grace and they look more manly and gnarly. Besides their form; the masculine bodies, they have a grainy skin, wide (just like a man) jaw and even a man-like voice. One of the main side effects of steroids on women is that they ruin the functioning of the female hormones, and this kind of shows quite drastically on the long term users/abusers. Let us know about these adverse effects of the roids on women.

- The usage of roids by women results in irregular menstrual cycle and in some cases the monthly cycle itself is irreparably stopped.

- Women also produce small amounts of male hormone testosterone in their body, but inducing more of this hormone through intake of the roids will only result in development of masculine characteristics in the women. These could be very embarrassing which include but not limited to hairy hands and legs (the condition of which is almost irreversible) and in extreme and rather scary cases they may even have development of small penis.

- Intimate behavioral change is what any woman would dread to think or undergo but the roids could just do that. Women kind of lose their grace and become ever more aggressive and in severe cases even androgyny might set in. This is a serious condition wherein normal heterosexual woman starts feeling more like a man and may even start liking another woman and tend to become a homosexual without their knowledge.

- On psychological front women develop tendency to throw frequent temper tantrums and also sexually aggressive.

- In some women use of steroids cause problems such as stomach distension, severe and persistent constipation, intestinal gas and bloating with water retention. They may even experience heavy vaginal discharge sweat more like men. Women might also get depressed and if they decide to stop on the roids they might experience withdrawal symptoms such as fatigue, apathy and increased depression.

No one is immune to the effects of roids even the women, while some experience more pronounced side effect while in some they are less pronounced. In any case most of the effects caused by the roids are irreversible. Obviously, no woman would be comfortable with the irreversible changes that roids give, so use them with all discretion and of course prescription.
