    Unhappy help!


    hi im in need of some help/advice etc. my boyfriend has been bodybuilding for the past 2years. he is quite big in my opinion but he wants to get more ripped. he has been looking into steroids. now he isn't taking it lightly-he has been researching for weeks and is planning on maybe doing a cycle in the summer. my issue is the side effects. he suffers with anxiety and depression and has been taking lexapro for the last few months. i am generally in full support of his training etc but i am really worried about him doing this as i just don't know what to expect and i don't want his personality to change or for him to go back into a depressed state. can anyone advise me on what to do or what to expect?? because i honestly could not handle him going back into a depression, it was unbelievably hard the last time and forgive me for being selfish but i don't want to go through that again. can someone help??

    In theory, the steroids themselves won't create a possiblity of depression, but the hormonal imbalance that occurs during PCT (post-cycle therapy) can be quite an emotional time for many guys (due to the low/nonexistant levels of testosterone, while estrogen is still present). If he has a history of depression, he needs to be extremely careful about anything he puts into his body that can upset his hormonal balance.

    Hopefully he comes over to this board as well so we can give him a hand. Good looking out for him.

    You say your bf is big how big is big? Like body weight and height? Is your bf trying to get his pro card! All guys want to get huge and ripped for a bodybuilding contest I'm the same way! But taking steriods is more at the Mr. Olympia type shows. Your bf shouldn't worry about taking any thype of steroids at this time. The effects could harm him or you. I would have ur bf keep doing research on getting super shredded but its mostly healthy and diet and doing cardio and playing with your calorie and carb intake! I would suggest you and your bf attend an actually body building show if you haven't already. And during the expo he can ask questions to the various body builders and stands they have there. Steriods is a last chance to achieve muscle
