THG, known as “The Clear” was a designer steroid used by Marion Jones, Jason Giambi, and other superstar athletes. Developed by Patrick Arnold along with Victor Conte and BALCO, it was thought to get past anti-doping testing until a sample was given to USADA. Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) is a nandrolone-derived steroid and adaptation of gestrinone. While it is not estrogenic its progesterone-related properties can lead to side effects like gynecomastia. It also has androgenic and cardiovascular side effects. Enjoy the history of this compound, and if you’ve heard of it still being produced or used, please let me know in the comments!

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.
