When Bodybuilding and Steroids Go Wrong

Steroids cause harmful side effects. The harmful side effects after the use of steroids are following:

Both genders can experience increased acne on the face, chest and back. Depending on the drug, anabolic steroids can cause behavior changes with increased aggression and irritability. Some of this aggression has caused people to commit armed robbery, use force to obtain something, physical fighting and even murder.

Anabolic steroids have also been known to cause behavioral effects including euphoria, increased energy, sexual arousal, mood swings, distractibility, forgetfulness and confusion.

Bad side-effects on blood pressure and the cardiovascular system can cause heart attacks, enlargement of the heart’s left ventricle and people younger than 30 to develop Cardiovascular disease.

Blood chemistry can change causing blood clots in the blood vessels and potentially disrupt the blood flow, damaging the heart muscle so it doesn’t pump blood effectively. Heart disease can develop because it affects the cholesterol levels. Anabolic steroids are especially dangerous for teenagers, interfering with the normal effect of hormones on a growing body, and premature development of the epiphysis resulting in stunted growth.

After taking steroids, it passes through the digestive system and the liver in order to get into the bloodstream, so they’re designed to survive the process, and require large amounts to ensure that there’s enough left afterwards to have an effect. The liver’s job is to remove such substances from the body which puts a great deal of strain on the liver and can result in significant liver damage and tumors which in turn can cause internal bleeding.

Some oral steroids can cause stomach distention, the lower abdomen becomes irritated and swollen. You may experience chronic constipation, water retention and intestinal problems also.

Taken in high doses, steroids can also develop jaundice, peliosis hepatitis, and cancer. Injected steroids are put directly into the blood stream, making them easier on your liver, but there is much concern over safe injection practices. Depression is further aggravated if and when steroid use stops with rebound causing extreme depression, fatigue, apathy, and the like.
