As a C17-aa anabolic steroid, Winstrol is hepatotoxic and will present stress to the liver. A common misconception many make is assuming only the oral version of this steroid is hepatotoxic. Winstrol can be found as an oral tablet or as an injectable solution but both forms are C17-aa and both stressful to the liver. In fact, injectable Winstrol is one of the only C17-aa injectable steroids. Many also inaccurately assume this is one of the most hepatotoxic anabolic steroids on the market; again this is false. Stanozolol will carry a greater hepatotoxicity than steroids like Anavar (Oxandrolone) but on a per milligram basis less hepatotoxic than steroids like Dianabol (Methandrostenolone).
Stanozolol is one of the few anabolic steroids female athletes can use with not only success but in an often highly well-tolerated manner. Standard Winstrol doses for almost any female athlete will fall in the 10mg per day range and while this may seem low, as women are more sensitive to the hormone it will provide the benefits they are after. Some women in physique sports will go as high as 20mg every day but this really opens the door to potential virilization effects and is not recommended. If 10mg per day is not enough to provide what you need the athlete might want to consider other steroids as part of a cycle or stack; other solid options for the female performance athlete often include Anavar , Primobolan Depot and many of the SERMs and thyroid hormones as well as HGH .
