Nowadays, it seems that a lot of boys and men make the decision to start using steroids. The usage of steroids causes a lot of side effects that are often not realized by the people who are taking them until it is too late. There are many examples of how dangerous taking anabolic steroids can be and that they can be the reason for the fatal outcome of the majority of people. Understanding the danger and still making the decision and taking the risk is better than simply diving into it without understanding what the risks are and then wondering how to overcome the problem.
The first week of using anabolic steroids is described by people as one of the best weeks in their lives. They take anabolic steroids with the simple idea of increasing their muscle mass, as well as strength and do the so called “body building”. This takes a lot of time and many hours in the gym doing exercises that will eventually increase the mass of the muscles. However, anabolic steroids speed up the whole process and within two weeks of using anabolic steroids, people start seeing significant effects of the usage and the training. They always begin with the idea of just taking steroids for a short period of time but end up with taking more and more until something happens and make them open their eyes for the danger. Apart from having testicular problems and testosterone problems, people taking anabolic steroids are at higher risks of cardio-vascular problems such as strokes and heart attacks, no matter of the age they are.
Stopping the intake of steroids should never be immediately but gradually. There also has to be a specific plan that needs to be followed in order to avoid any dangerous outcomes during the process of stopping the usage. This is why PCT or Post Cycle Therapy is recommended. It is important that you consider the PCT only if you are certain that you are stopping the steroid usage, because if you plan to restart the usage after a short period of non-usage, then there will be higher risks for your health that can also be fatal. Being careful with the PCT and your steroid usage is highly recommended for your safety and for the results you want to see.
PCT is different and has to be prepared for the person specifically in order for the best options to be considered and only the best possible results to be seen. A professional is highly recommended to be part of the process when you are doing the PCT, because every potential outcome must be considered and all risks should be avoided. The main purpose of the PCT is to help your body adapt to the non-usage of steroids and for you to go back as much as possible to the health state that you used to have before you started taking steroids, but keep in mind that you will never be able to gain back the same levels of testosterone.
