    When did you tell your significant other about your use?

    Going on vacation in a few days and I have yet to tell my new female companion about my steroid use . It's been only 1.5 months, but I'm already getting nervous about hiding the 2 shots I will take at the hotel. I know in the past I would have said "just suck it up and tell her," but now I'm not so sure I want to, yet. When have you guys told your gf/bf about your use and how did it go?

    I tell no one..... except you guys. My wife knows cause she’s seen it.
    I say don’t tell anyone. They may use it against you at some point.

    When was first seeing my girl I was running tren pinning Ed so had to bring my shit in a little baggie when I went to stay with her for a weekend.

    She found the syringes and stuff and thought I was doing heroin. Came up to me crying. When I told her nah babe just steroids . Gues it didn't seem so bad compared to heroin. She does not agree with me using still

    That's what I was afraid she would think it is, too. But then if she puts 2+2 together, it's not hard to tell what they're for... I already had two slipups, when I tried showing her something on my phone and the first thing that popped up was steroid .com with the big ass adds saying "Anabolic Steroids ."

    Before I started, I had to work it out with the wife. That is not something to hide. We were BF/GF at that time, maybe 1 year in, so alittle longer. Sooner you're honest the better, IMO.

    If someone asks I take them (rare) I just tell them, bruh what the fuck do you think lmao. I really don't care anymore.

    She’s known since I began.
    She was there when I found out that I am primary hypo and needed TRT. She’s been my reasoned sounding board for every decision that I have made regarding my AAS/drug use. She has stood there talking to me while I draw and inject. I asked her to inform me of any notable attitude shifts when I try new shit and new dosages.
    She’s hidden my shit for me when we had home inspections (buying property) that occurred when I wasn’t home. She’s received packages for me when I couldn’t be there.
    Frankly, if I’m ever considering doing something that I would need to hide from her, I need to seriously rethink my decisions in life.

    I am in the same boat as you here; at my age (54 and rapidly closing in on 55...); fuck lying about it...

    I fully agree with Charger69 though... Some people, chicks in particular, or ex-wives will use this against you...

    It is a questionable, slippery slope, to say the least.

    In a perfect world honesty would be the way to go, especially if the relationship lasts longer and longer; then deniability becomes more difficult. Add to that the hassle of hiding your gear and shit... F*** That!

    When I have to inject, it is time and game on...

    Break it to her, bro, if you think she is a keeper. This will make your life easier in the long run.

    You don't think your wife would approve? I would think at that level of being with someone, I would be ok with my wife knowing, but I'm not you.

    I don't knoww... 1 year is different than 1.5 months. I feel like most girls would probably not even want to be involved with a guy if they know he does steroids - unless they were exposed to the lifestyle before or had a chance to know the guy on a deeper level. The chick I'm with is a straight edge, smart, corporate business chick. I don't want to scare her off so soon...

    Well, you have a perfectly good reason to be on TRT. It's not surprising that you have included her in your decision making. It has to feel good to know you can trust her and she accepts you for it.

    I'm not one to lie to anyone, but this early on, I feel like because of the stigma related to steroids, this would negatively impact her opinion of me. There's just so much to explain and so many excuses to make. Maybe you're right though, maybe I need to be up front about it and if she is a keeper, she'll understand.

    If you can, don't even tell your wife. Things go sour and you know it will probably used against you in divorce/family court.

    Don’t tell her. If I could do it all over again I’d keep it a secret. Unless you want it thrown in your face at every fight or every time you’re in a bad mood. “Are you taking something new?” “Are you on Tren ?” “Oh you’re just in a mood because you’re on that shit”.

    Lie till you die

    You don't know a woman until you break up with her, and you don't know when that's gonna happen. Keep that in mind.

    Do we have the same wife??

    When she gets pissed, I’m a druggy.

    She didn’t think it was funny when she saw big letters “ not for human consumption” either.

    Within the 1st two weeks of knowing things are going to get serious....
    I’m honest and if they don’t like it then they can fuck off....
    To be fair I’ve had a few significant others in my time and each one has been ok with it..

    I respect completely everyone here who is open about it with their significant others. An honest life is enviable.

    I'm with all the other guys though. While she knows I'm on TRT, she doesn't really understand what it means so a box of needles and vials is just part of the deal. I keep my gear for runs in another spot and preload pins so to her, its just a box of medical supplies that I need to take every few days. If she ever got really nosy it wouldn't take much for her to wonder why my TRT dose is 6cc's a week

    OP... it's been 1.5 months.... and you're offering her an easy way to destroy your life.

    Best of luck,

    To me, some things aren't worth arguing about. When you've been with someone for 30 years, honest or not, you learn to pick your battles...

    Why are you bringing gear on a what sounds like a 1-week vacation? Missing one week in the big scheme of things is really no big deal.

    I told my wife before I even started.

    I did that until she took down the names and started checking on the internet.
    Tren isn’t part of TRT. Why does it say for veterinary use only? (Gear in Mexico used to state that it was for the veterinary).

    More importantly, why is he planning a vacation in the middle of a cycle? Sounds like a waste of gear.

    Well, you have a perfectly good reason to be on TRT. It's not surprising that you have included her in your decision making. It has to feel good to know you can trust her and she accepts you for it.

    Hey Test Monsterone,

    I wish you the best of luck buddy.

    I agree with you on the stigma thing, that is a no shitter... Like I said though, at an advanced age, it has become my experience that what others think about me and my usage, doesn't effect me in the slightest... I hope for you that you are not yet pushing 50 yo...

    Good luck bro. My philosophy would be to break it to her easy, slowly... You know, blah, blah, blah, all the guys are using today, bodybuilders to businessmen, HRT/TRT.... Something like that...

    Wow Redz...

    I don't know why, but it is a surprise to me... I understand that everyone is different, and she is definitely entitled to her beliefs and opinions.

    Well, good luck keeping it under wraps, brother...!!!

    LOL! I've taken a sharpie to some of my pep vials. The key is to make it real neat, like its just some black bar they put on there for style.

    Ironically, it seems ok for the fda to approve all sorts of nasty food stuffs that kill way more people than AAS ever will...

    She is naive. I don’t keep my gear in my place just in my car lol. I’m working on getting her to accept me taking hgh. I think once I’m back in peak shape she will be ok with that.

    I'm sure you've been around long enough to figure out that who you can trust is highly dependent upon the individual. I've got buddies I've known for years, hell.. even family members, that I I don't trust any further than I can throw them (and they're obese), but then I've got buddies that became brothers in relatively short time frame. BUT...You're lying to yourself if you think you know a chick well enough to trust her with your gear use after just 6 weeks. Have you seen her pissed yet? I'm not talking mad. I'm talked bat shit, telling you that you've got a small dick pissed. Wait until you see how she handles herself when given the opportunity to be vindictive before you start giving her fuel for future use. In the meantime, Google "amazon Barbasol Shaving Cream Can Diversion Safe" and call in day.

    My wife did my very first pin. Her interpretation of slow and easy was FAR different from mine. I learned that day after she slammed 1.5ml of prop into my virgin baby deltoid as if she was a performing an experiment to see if it were possible to actually errupt the fascia up through the pores of my skin like some type of connective tissue linguini that she was more of a "get er done" kind of gal. She's offered many times since then, but I've elected to take care it of myself.

    I guess Mrs. AG found out when I injected in front of her while we were watching TV. Been so long ago that I'm not sure.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Ya kno, to b honest - my current wife is who helped me get on juice.

    I brought up the idea of course, then she just ran with it - get em, I’ll inject. I didn’t inject myself until I believe maybe six months to a year after starting.

    My wife wanted me to go to doc because of my low sex drive. She is all about what TRT did for us.

    I run some other stuff along with my TRT and just keep that to myself, is she asked I would Tell.
