Of course, there is something women will need to concern themselves with that men will not, and it revolves around virilization as we discussed a little at the very beginning. There are very few women who desire such traits or effects, and if you supplement with responsible doses for proper periods of time (please see the Winstrol Doses link) most women will not have the first problem. Of course, if you surpass these amounts virilization is go ing to occur, and unfortunately, in some cases, it will occur even with responsible use. We are all unique human beings, and we all respond to different things differently; you may be able to eat eggs just fine, but some cannot or it tears their stomach apart. This is the nature of life, it may not be fair, but it is again the nature of life. With this in mind, if for any reason virilization symptoms begin to show, assuming you don't want them you are strongly encouraged to discontinue use immediately. If you do, they will fade away rather quickly, but if ignored they may very well make a permanent home in and on you.
As for bodybuilders, Stanozolol has one interesting peculiarity demanded among them. It consists in the profound ability to lower sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) level resulting in efficiency growing of other steroids in stack with it. In particular, it raises the amount of biologically active free testosterone circulating in the blood. For this reason it is advisable always to use Stanozolol in stack with testosterone. Another one reason for this is as follows: Winstrol may be more prone than other anabolic steroids to increasing tendon brittleness. This happens due to Winstrol`s possibility to dry out the joint fluid, which can lead to joint pain and damages. Also both Stanozolol forms: tablets and injections have been noted to provoke adverse changes in cholesterol levels. Hence, monitoring of the lipid profile of the body (blood works) during cycle is advisable.
It shall be noticed, that in men, approximately 5% of testosterone undergoes 5α-reduction to form the more potent androgen, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), also known as androstanolone. From another side approximately % of testosterone is converted into estradiol (the primary female sex hormone) by aromatase an enzyme expressed in the brain, liver, and adipose tissues. Hence, don`t forget to take precautions to avoid respective side effects. Thereof we recommend to perform blood works and take aromatase inhibitors on cycle (if required, anastrozole preferably) and SERMs (clomifene, toremifene) during post cycle therapy (PCT).
