    1. Taking them when the body is not fully developed is foolish. You not only potentially "short-circuit" your endocrine system, but you never take the time to establish a solid foundation of years of training and knowledge about nutrition.

    2. The sides cannot be stopped; they can minimize the damage, but never completely negate it.

    3. Part of the issue with AAS is that there is so much that is unknown because they were never adequately studied. There are the known effects (e.g. acne, hair loss, etc), but no one truly knows what effect they may have on any person. Taking them while you're still growing will only exacerbate this potential.

    BTW, if you're asking this and considering taking them, I'd advise against it.

    Be prepared for a lot of people flaming you, and telling you crap loads of info. THERE is so many reasons why steroids are bad more at a young age your not done growing so it can infuse the growth plates and cause a lot of harm later down the road. Also if your gonna be taking steroids at such a young age its gonna be even harder 1-2 years down the road to make any gains at all without roids.

    Then theres gyno i dont know a teenage or anybody for that matter that wants gyno. How about screwing up your test levels for life. I mean the risk of permantely screwing yourself up isnt that high but its not worth it when you can make good gains without it.

    Also acne, hair loss, and a lot of emotional problems can arise cause your brain isnt fully developed.

    now this is just my take on it.

    Health Risks

    When you are under 21, your endocrine system is still developing. This should be obvious as you are still going through the end of puberty, getting acne, etc. During this time peroid, supplementing with extrogenous hormones is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. There is potential for very serious and long term side effects to occur. I hear all the time some of these people saying that "I've stopped growing, so it's okay". No - it's not okay. There are many other potential side effects besides growth plates. Here is a list of a few.

    1) Premature closing of growth plates. This one is the most known about. Even if you think you have stopped growing, there still is a potential for height increase over time. I have known people who are 18+ who have continued to grow in height. Scientists know that growth plates don't fuse completely in some cases until individuals are past 22. Don't be deterred just because you haven't grown taller in awhile.

    2) Impotence. Supplementing with hormones while you are still growing can potentially cause PERMANENT impotence and fertility issues in teenagers. When you add testosterone, estrogen and a wealth of other synthetic androgens to your body it can cause problems with your normal testicular growth and function. Remember, some of these effects are more than just temporary.

    3) Liver/Kidney Problems. I hear all the time teenagers say "Well my friends used it and they got big and nothing happened to them." Really? How do you know? Have they been to a doctor and had their liver and kidney values checked? I doubt it. Just because a person looks okay on the outside, doesn't mean that they could have a host of problems on the inside. Liver and kidney damage is nothing short of serious. This can occur even in people who are past their teen years.

    4) Gyno or "bitch tits". I believe this using androgens in teens can really increase the risk of gyno. Gyno has been known to happen naturally in many teenagers because of already fluxating hormones. When you add more hormones to the mix, you dramatically increase the problems. Remember that once you have gyno, its very hard to get rid of unless you take the proper precautions up front.

    5) Hair loss/acne/prostate aggrevation, etc. All of these can be increased and agrevated with external androgen use. Have you ever seen a 20 year old going bald? It's not pretty. Don't think it can't happen to you.

    6) Brain function. It is well known that hormones play a role in development of cognative brain function. Adding external hormones when your brain is still developing could be a disaster waiting to happen. How can you know many years down the road there won't be problems?

    Psychological Problems

    Being a teenager can be difficult as it is. Getting used to your own body image can be hard if you feel you're different than everyone else. Many teenagers turn to bodybuilding to help improve that image, and that can be a very healthy thing. However, when a teenager becomes obsessed or is only after short term goals of getting ripped in 6 weeks then it can be a very serious problem when prohormones/steroids get in the mix.

    1) Abuse. There is a high potential for abuse when individuals turn to prohormones/steroids when they aren't mature enough to handle them. Most of these individuals had these substances recommended to them by friends with erroneous data presented to them on how to use them and how they work. I have seen teenagers on this board claim to never come off cycles of Mag-10 and 1AD. There is no reason to abuse your body like that. Never coming off hormones can have even greater risks than using them for the short term, such as halting normal hormone production permantely. If you have a problem and want to discuss it with us, please post it.

    Legal Problems

    Using steroids and prohormones underage can have very obvious legal implications. Since all prohormones have labels on them indicated that they are not for use for individuals under 18, you take into liability not only yourself and your family, but risk liability on the manufacturer and seller who sold these substances to you. By doing this, you are hurting the community who use these substances responsibly. Take responsibility for yourself and stay away from these. Causing harm to yourself is one thing, but everytime a teenager uses prohormones, the potential for them being banned increases. Here are some other problems

    1) Drug testing. If you are a teenager playing sports, using steroids and prohormones can seem like a good idea to increase your performance. How would it look if you suddenly got tested for them? Being tested for prohormones WILL SHOW UP AS STEROIDS. You will have no recourse for this, and could potentially find yourself being investigated by the authorities.

    2) Purchasing steroids is already illegal, but purchasing prohormones can have implications as well. As I already said, on all bottles of prohormones there is a label saying "Not for use for individuals under 18". That is not just printed on there as a joke, that is on there for a reason. If you bought these substances underage and then got into trouble or had one of the side effects listed above from taking these, what do you think your parents are going to do? They are probably going to sue the manufacturer, sue the seller, and possibly contact their congressmen demanding these substances be banned. You just screwed everyone because you were in a hurry to get some quick muscle. Take into consideration the rest of us before you make your irresponsible purchases.

    Please read this over and think about what your goals are a long time before you decide to take your health into jeopardy and risk legal repercussions by using prohormones and steroids as a teenager. You not only endanger yourself, but all of us who want to or may want to use prohormones one day. We all want to have good gains and have pefect bodies, thats why we're here. But rushing into things and abusing susbstances is not the answer. There is absolutely no justification for teenagers to use prohormones or steroids. None. So, before you decide to use them - please take some time out, and make a post describing your training, diet and supplemenation. I know that me and the other members of the board would be more than happy to help you make some changes to your diet and training to help gain naturally, without the use of androgens. Doing this, you will save us all a a lot of grief.

    That may give you the answer you need....

    Hate to break it to you, but it is possible to be that size and lean without AAS. There are so many myths regarding AAS use and most of them are founded upon nothing more than, "I read on the interwebs that they can cause _______."

    It's even more rare to see responsible, intelligent AAS use. You're 5 inches taller than me and 15 lbs lighter than I am. There is no reason for you to not be able to easily get to 230 at your height.

    Eat more, lift harder, and be patient. I went from 145 to 210 within 2 years through dedication, big eating, lifting heavy, and patience.

    haah wow kid. Wow. Go to a doc and see if they tell you there are no major sides. Considering I know quite a few guys who are 230+ without anabolics (NGA competitors), I don't believe your statement is accurate at all.

    wikiniks just listen to these people, they know what they are talking about, they have experience when it comes to steroids and any other prohormonals, if you start using them now you could mess yourself up pretty bad.

    Good....Get him to delete you to.
    I'm sorry but you have no brains bud.
    You answered your own question by posting this thread in the first place.
    Then you proceeded to show how naive you are by saying things such as 'you don't die from it' and that lean 230+ pounders are all juicers....Please man, READ!

    Now, please do reading on such topics, actually I don't think you should know what steroids are yet....So second thought, please stick with your basics and tell your friend the same and read up on THOSE topics.

    Sorry to all if post was too harsh, end rant
