    WHATS THE WORST SIDE EFFECT YOU HAVE GOTTEN FROM A PH OR STEROID


    seeing as the harm that they apparently do to you and the dangers of prohormone use are harped on about about soo much over the internet I was just wondering if anyone has actually gotten any real bad side effects or permanent damage resulting from the use of a prohormone?
    Has anyone out there actually done any permanent damage to their liver with methyl's? It is apparently soo bad for you but i have never actually heard a first hand account of anyone having done any real serious damage.
    I would like peolpe to share any of their bad experiences here... should be interesting to hear some horror stories.

    I don't personally know of anyone either, but from my research ph's seem to be very harsh on the body. As far as long term effects go its unknown. I am not aware of anyone that has been using them for 30+ years to see the effects on the body. It's a crap shoot as far as I'm concerned and I usually stay away from the harsh Ones. I feel safer with aas because there is far more research available, and actual living examples of long term use. I would tread carefully with them and stick to the milder ones mostly, and limit use of the harsh ones as much as possible. I usually stick to injectables and rarely use orals. I may use orals a total of 12 weeks a year at the beginning of blasts.

    You won't get permanent damage unless you abuse them, or have pre-existing conditions.

    Get bloods before you cycle, use cycle support supps, stay away from booze.

    Personally prefer old-school hormones over PHs, although IML have some good ones.

    The effects are greatly exaggerated but there are negative effects. I don't think anything that can shorten your life significantly though other than blood pressure/cholesterol issues since those obviously weaken your heart. It's interesting though that only one Mr Olympia winner thus far has died(though there are only 13 I believe total). That was Sergio Oliva from kidney failure, don't jump to blaming that on steroids either because many elderly people die from kidney failure which could be caused by several things.

    Problem is, like they say in Bigger Faster Stronger, you can't prove cause and effect. There are too many outside factors in any person's body that affect the same systems that they claim are damaged by steroid use. You can prove small things like spikes in BP, cholesterol, kidney/liver values, etc but the problem is there will never be a long term controlled study on the use of steroids. No one will be approved to isolate people and test steroids on them for years on end to find out long term effects for certain.

    To answer OPs question for me the worst sides I've seen in the 2 cycles I've done(Halodrol and SD/4ad/Stano) were extreme back pumps during cycle and on the SD I had pretty high BP(130-140) once I went up to 30mg. I haven't experienced any effects that remained after the cycle, maybe a little extra chest hair but a very small amount.

    Only did PH once (H-Drol). Don't consider it to be a "real" side effect, but the only "bad" thing I can remember was the increased rage.

    This is purely anectdotal, but look at people like Hulk Hogan and Stallone. These are people that likely never came off, and used steroids for 40 years straight.

    Not saying it isn't without risks, but it appears that it doesn't really kill you very easily.

    Only real side effect I've ever had was some mild acne on my upper arms.

    Also a lot of people point to pro wrestlers who died in their 30's and want to blame steroids.

    Those people ignore the fact that so many of those guys abused all sorts of recreational drugs.

    Severe Abcesses during a SD cycle all of sudden in week 7 of an otherwise great cycle 8 years ago. Had emergency surgery on one the size and length of bratwurst in my gooch. My body wasnt able to fight infection and pimples were turning to these nasty huge puss filled things. Very painful and disgusting. Took just over a month for it to all to clear up.

    No I didn't , nor did i have a follow up after my surgery. I was uninsured so I think that may be why I didn't get much attention from the doc during my 2 day stay. The first thing the doctor asked me after taking a look at my situation and drawing bloods was if I were using steroids. I wasn't sure if that was because of my physical appearance, condition or something in my blood work. Ill be honest though I lied and said no. It was a emberrasing situation and I was in pain, freaked out but I shoulda been honest. Its past. After that he tossed around reasons for it happening and mentioned chrones disease and something related to liver damage a my body not fighting infection properly which was most likely the case since I don't have chrones. In hindsight I wish I had been honest first off and also received more info on my bloodwork and liver condition at the time. With a clear head it woulda been my priority but at the time I wasn't thinking clear, I was thinking fix me so i dont die and get me outa here so I don't lose my job and after being loaded with dilauded for a couple days I was pretty willing to just go with the flow without many questions.

    Your tempting fate running these things constantly on and off all year some guys for like 10 years.
    I assume a great deal of the guys that use orals is simply as they do not know how to acces proper AAS. (as is my case..). there's a couple of guys at my gym who I believe are certainly on it ( could just be orals) but I would never think of approaching them and asking them where I can get some and therefore accusing them of being on it which may be taken the wrong way.
    How did you end up finding them the first time?

    For me the only sides I have over the many years of cycling would be very mild acne, back pumps, slight depression after cycle. On my SD/Phera cycle my blood pressure did reach close to 160. For long term effects I am not sure yet. Blood work always comes back nice a couple weeks after PCT.

    I had a similar experience as far as the back pumps go when I bumped my Helladrol to 100mg from 75mg. I couldn't stand for more than 20 min and driving a car was a nightmare for some reason even though sitting down.

    My worst was high BP like 155/90, and then extreme anxiety and a panic attack and racing heart that lasted for hours... All on Hdrol. I've I didn't die and my bloodwork looked great. I continued on to other things and I have never had anything like that again so I just don't think my body likes Hdrol.

    Bloody noses week six of hdrol. All at random. This m-sten I'm having irregular heart beats if I go too hard in the gym. Going six weeks so we shall see. Almost done with week four onto five. Fast heart rate after drop sets on rows, stopped and my heart beat about 5 times in 15 seconds then went back to normal, almost passed out. Taking more than enough support for heart, bp, etc. At least m-sten didn't start my gyno up like hdrol did. Just going injection route after this from now on. I bet tren would turn me into a hairless ogre.

    Worst I've had so far are acne minorly, lethargy when estrogen gets too low on a dry stack, and backpumps. My bloodpressure on Epi and Cyano stack was 122-78. I was taking nitrates in my preworkout and that could've been helping. But so far never really had any sides. But I don't drink or do other drugs and so the strongest thing I ever put down is the chemicals. That could be why
