The effects of anabolic steroids: a quick guide.
Everyone is familiar with the most common of effects of anabolic steroids. This as we all know is increased athletic performance. Basically the body produces more protein, and the blood stream has a greater source of testosterone, which we all know makes everyone bigger stronger and faster. What you may not know are many of the other effects of anabolic steroids, sometimes called side effects. The first problem you should know about is the adverse effect on the liver. This is not surprising sense the body has to process an extra amount of a harsh foreign chemical. The second of the side effects of anabolic steroids is the adverse effect on the male reproductive system. Because the male reproductive system is responsible for the creating of testosterone, anytime a foreign source is provided, the body gets the idea that it no longer has to produce as much. Eventually this side effect will lead to the shrinking of the male testicles. It has also been reported that one of the effects of anabolic steroids is decreased sexual desire.
There are also serious psychological consequences. Anabolic steroids are known to create a chemical dependence in the user who may have withdrawal symptoms once the steroids are no longer administered, as well as experiencing what is best described as aggressive behavior.
