Hey, great list!
I don’t use them personally, but I train with a few women who do. I’ve noticed some of the side effects and they’ve mentioned it too.
But I didn’t know what to look for and how many alternatives there were – so while I’ll probably still choose not to use any (my goals are just to stay active), I’ll pass this along to my friends who want different results than I do. Maybe it’ll help them make some good choices, or to switch to something with fewer (or no) side effects.
It is true, Anavar is a very female friendly, and for the vast majority of women if they keep their use at a responsible level they will experience no virilization symptoms. However, if your dose goes too high, you can guarantee the Anavar results you see will not be the ones you desire. Further, and this is extremely important to remember, because we are all unique individuals, we will all respond to the hormone in a unique way. For this reason, some women, even with responsible use may fall prey to virilization symptoms. If this occurs, and if the woman discontinues use as soon as the symptoms begin to show they will fade away, and she will be fine.
