This video is a physician’s analysis of Anavar aka Oxandrolone, a steroid often used by women, and its side effects and properties. Anavar was an early oral steroid, and considered a wonder steroid because it was designed to be anabolic and not androgenic, while avoiding estrogenic side effects. But is it really? Clinically, we still see androgenic side effects, hypogonadism, and cardiovascular side effects. Women who use anavar have their own set of side effects. If you are considering using Anavar or have used it, please watch this video to learn the risks!

Stay Strong and Healthy,
As the Anabolic Doc, since 2003, I’ve provided men who are using or have used anabolic steroids a confidential, ethical and professional medical venue to discuss their use. I do NOT in any way support the use of any performance enhancing drugs – PEDs, anabolic steroid or other medicine for muscle building or body transformation. The “off-label” use of PEDs, as such agents is considered elicit and may lead to adverse health outcomes. Please consult an expert health professional regarding any medical agent and do NOT use any medicine without the explicit advice and supervision of an appropriate medical expert.
