Can be hard on the liver dependent on which one you use, how long you tLiver damage
take it, and what dosage you take.
Not sureEnlarged clitoris
In my 10 years of taking them, I had this happen. Nor did anyone I know have it happen to them.Shrunken testicles
They can cause an increase in acne but I would not classify it as extreme.Extreme acne
Lie. Anyone taking steriods who is psychotic was psychotic before they started taking the.Addiction
Quite the opposite, you sex drive goes up.Impotence
Some of them cause hair loss.Baldness
They can cause some aggression.Irritability
If any thing are create a sense of well being.Depression
Not that I ever saw.Mood swings
Can't say. But many a guy on them had kids. So, if it was low, it wasn't that low.Reduced sperm count
If you had uncontrollable anger/rage problem before taking them, you still have the same problem when taking them...no more, no less.Uncontrollable anger/rage
Only in regard to tendons and ligaments. Muscle strength increases much faster than tendons/ligaments. So, thta MAY be a problem. But I never experience it, saw it, or heard about it.increased susceptibility to injuries
Possibly, but not that much more.Increased susceptibility to infections
NO kid should be taking them. I am not sure.Premature closure of growth plates (adolescents)
HIV/AIDS from the sharing of needles (no, side effect of being an idiot)

Gyconamastia/Bitch Tits...I had a friend who did experience this problem. So, there is a minute chance of this.Breast enlargement (males)
This could occur. I know two women who took anabolics. They NEVER experienced these problems. Probably because they were selective in what they took.Breast reduction (females)
Increase in male characteristics (females)
Certain anabolics are going to be more androgenic...produce more male characteristics. So, women need to be espeically selective in the ones they take.
Again, it depends on dosage, cycle length and which ones you take. Along with that is genetics.Heart and circulatory problems
Drinking too much water, hyponatramia, will kill you. As Forest Gump said, "Stupid is as stupid does."
I wasn't being gullible and reading this and thinking all of them were true. I wanted to post that list to show the common things that anti steroids people use as propaganda. I wanted to know which ones had truth to them and which ones didn't.Just because you read it on the internet, doen't make it so.
That can occur while on steroids but that's because of muscle dysmorphia.Addiction
