This answer was rated:

Hi im 24 male, Im thinking about doing steriods and gym work i was wondering if i should inject it or pill form . and would you try talk me out of using it if so do u have any reasons?


There is hardly any difference to choose in either of two forms, as both would work in same way. Except, that injectable, start work in a day while oral form may 3-5 days. But as a physician, nobody would advice you to take them. They may be helpful in shaping your body and give you some good early looks, in long term they can be harmful. The side effects and adverse effects are many and affect whole of the metabolism. Without steroids, one can achieve better muscle mass (although that take some more time), but it does not have any affections to our body's normal physiological mechanisms.

Hope this helps.

ok i was just thinking about trying them for a month or 2 then just use normal gym work without steriods. Do you think if i only trial it for a month or 2 my body would be ok to recover back to normal metabolism and everthing?


The body has a high physiological reserves and majority would recover completely in month or two use. But anything which is deleterious for health, medical advice is; not to use them. Although an individual choice is to be respected. Just a caution; a small fraction of people may cause liver and other minor metabolic problems even with short term use.

Hope this helps.

It is pleasure assisting you.
