Anabolic steroids are available as both injectable and oral products. There are two ways to administer injectable steroids, either by subcutaneous injection via a short needle into the adipose tissue below the skin, or by intramuscular injection, which is a deeper injection directly into the muscle. Your injection schedule will usually dictate which method (twice a week or less = intramuscular, daily = subcutaneous) and your preferred injection site.

Injecting steroids have certain advantages over oral steroids and it is important that you analyze both methods of administration and choose what suits you best. If you choose an easy-to-use management method, you will probably see through your cycle to the end.

The most obvious advantage that injectable steroids have over their oral relatives is that they are not hepatotoxic. Injectable steroids are safer in the liver and the user does not risk liver damage since injectable compounds do not require specific chemical changes that allow them to pass through the liver without being almost completely destroyed. That's it too worth injectable steroids have a much longer half-life bound to the hormone due to the ester. The ester present in injectable steroids allows for much less frequent administration and need not be administered daily. Another important advantage that injectable steroids have over oral, is that they give the user better control over the exact amount they can put into their system. This is because they do not have to deal with the vagaries of the digestive system. This is of great benefit to experienced users as they know exactly how their body reacts to specific amounts of different hormones and can tailor their cycle exactly to their needs.

Cardiovascular system

The use of anabolic orrogenic steroids in overdosed form (and even at the proper dosage) can cause a variety of adverse effects on the cardiovascular system.

This is reflected in several areas; This includes, among other things, an unfavorable increase in cholesterol, a thickening of the heart chambers, increased blood pressure and a changed reactivity within the vascular system.

Put simply, these preparations are very safe. The risk of heart attack in an otherwise healthy person during a single steroid cycle is negligible, as is the risk of stroke.

However, with longer periods of use, the period in which undesired side effects can multiply increases. Premature death from myocardial infarction or stroke is a definite risk in the long-term use of anabolic steroids. To better understand these risks, it is important to understand the precise effects of steroids on the cardiovascular system.

Immune system

The human immune system reacts primarily to sex hormones. This results in functional differences between the sexes. Women tend to have a more active immune system than men and are more resistant to bacterial and other infections.

In addition, the female immune system is more prone to autoimmune diseases, which can be attributed, inter alia, to the higher level of action. The daily immune status in turn is subject to the hormonal fluctuations of the menstrual cycle, which also proves the strong influence of sex hormones. Thus, the slightly weaker defense strength of men can apparently be attributed to the testosterone, which acts here as an immunosuppressive hormone.

Androgens can therefore directly alter the immune system - either through their conversion into estrogens or by altering the glucocorticoid circulation.

Anabolic steroids have demonstrated both immunostimulatory and immunosuppressive activities in animal studies.

Due to the fact that these drugs can affect the immune system in a variety of ways, and because anabolic steroids are a multi-faceted class of drugs, the effects on the immune system always depend on the conditions.

In therapeutic use, changes in the immune system are usually negligible and do not lead to any relevant immunostimulatory or immunosuppressive actions. Anabolic steroids have also been used in many immunocompromised patients, such as muscle wasting associated with HIV infection, without any significant change in the immune system or the tumor marker.

The use of anabolic steroids in overdosed form can slightly impair the function of the immune system by reducing the defenses of the user with respect to certain infections.

Studies have shown that steroid users have lower serum concentrations of immunoglobulins G, M and A. This corresponded exactly to the status of immunosuppressed patients.

Although this logically implies a higher risk of infection for certain diseases, an actual higher disease rate of the steroid consumers could not be detected in the course. However, due to the very random nature of diseases, it would be difficult to establish such a link without detailed studies.
