    Anavar and menstrual cycle

    Iím about to start my 1st cycle. Iíll be doing 10/day anavar . Iíve read where some women did not have a menstrual cycle or spotted while they were on. My question is, is that what I should kinda expect? Did you/your lady have one directly after? How soon after? Thanks in advance

    It varies from one to the next


    It's kinda y my wife is still scared of running n e thing



    But, 10mg is a good starting dose - from everything I hear, you should b fine




    Yet, I know 3rd party info isn't as good as 1st person - I think we have one female left on here who would know

    I’m on my first cycle, supposed to be getting my period today, haven’t gotten it.
    I have read lots of women don’t get it.

    I've read the title of this post a few times over the last few days and it only now provoked the obvious. First, I'd like to apologize to anyone who I may offend. Second, the only reason to be offended is because the excessively politically correct environment we live-in. That's never stopped me before so,
    ----"Anavar and PMS," ...OMG, that's the scariest thing I've heard of in weeks!

    I don't get it. Are you thinking anavar would increase symptoms of pms?

    No Mam,
    The reply has nothing to do with the science of things, just the practical. Anavar would increase the damage caused by PMS on me. And, probably justified.
    In response to the original post, I understand that Amenorrhea (sorry for the big word I'm just trying to show that I respect you) is often experienced by lady athletes. Perhaps the cause is hormonal status, cortisol, I guess? It would make sense that between the dedication of a lady lifter and the anavar itself, one would expect it. Also, it would also make sense that it is a temporary state.
    As for the psychosocial changes, I wouldn't know. However, your question seems to concern the one physical symptom, spotting, or amenorrhea, I'd bet my car against a home cooked meal that it is temporary.

    There really aren't a lot of women on here.
    To the original poster, I'm sorry I can't provide much insight on this. I'm about 6 weeks in on my first cycle (25mg Anavar /day) and haven't had a period but I've only spotted a little since November unrelated to anavar usage (as I'm in perimenopause). Fwiw I ovulated the other day. That's all I got.
    Best wishes!

    Info on female cycling is damn near impossible to find.


    I'd love to know on how much & how long some of these girls run this shit. . . No one brings it up & it seems to b way more frowned upon than guys on juice.

    Exactly!! There is not as many women taking it, and those that do, don’t talk about it

    I wish I knew more so I could post here! The first cycle stickie is apparently great for guys, but doesnt speak to women's needs at all. And it was written *by a woman*

    My coach has several women athletes: ifbb bikini, figure, and physique pros (as well as male ifbb pros) He's been doing this for like 30 years and knows his sh!t, so I just do what I'm told and keep in daily communication with him.

    My advice to other women: get yourself an excellent coach. Someone with experience with women. Take a look at their clients to see if you like the results.


    P.S. our plan for my first cycle is/was 25mg Anavar daily for 16 weeks and 40mcg clen (building up to 3x/day) daily for 3 weeks, then eca stack 3x/day for 3 weeks, then back to clen and so on. That in mind, it's a game plan, not set in stone. Make adjustments as necessary

    I was surprised that even bikini athletes are using.
    Personally I'm glad to share my experience on an anonymous forum such as here, but was advised not to talk about it to my gym acquaintances bc people definitely gossip - and especially about women

    When women enjoy social/cultural permission to bodybuild, to be muscular, to be gender non-conforming they'll be more likely to open up about it.

    In my 30 years of weight training I can't tell you the number of times I've been told to be careful not to get too big, or muscular, or strong, or masculine. (And I only recently started using gear)

    My point is, the social cost for openness about steroids is much greater for women. And although it shouldn't matter what other people say and think, we're social animals, humans, it does matter.

    No doubt theres been a double standard since the dawn of time. But i think the double standard applies more to women in bodybuilding in general than to women using steroids. The stigma surrounding steroids is pretty harsh regardless, and theres horrible scrutiny for anyone that uses, purchases, sells. Thats why theres so many anonymous forums, censorship, etc. I agree with you on the double standard, but i would say it applies to women in the realm of bodybuilding more so than the ones that use steroids . They get scrutiny too, but just as much as the rest of us get for using, which is heaps and tons

    Fron what I know & have seen/heard -

    If you look juiced - u r juiced, female - male, it don't matter


    How & what they run - well, it varies



    But, I see girls every day around me - and I know u r on some shit, and a lot & for a long time. . . There is just no way around it




    If someone asks me & they get lucky enough to get a real full answer - they are shocked when I say I am on injectables year round

    Samson snd Dannyboy, thank you both for educating me on the male experience with AS and the scrutiny and sh!t men encounter.
    Dannyboy, point well taken on the double standard applying more to bodybuilding
    Samson, "if u look juiced u r juiced" that's a good point

    Unfortunately, more because of the media and the stories told over and over, the stigma surrounding any kind of steroid use by anyone is worse than the underage angry binge drinking going on at any college campus in the country. Just what it is. Few people in my circle of friends know i juice, and they think its the devils brew and im gonna gointo convulsions and die any minute, cuz of shit they have read and heard through the media. Sucks for all of us, but until more people step out and educate, thats how it is
