The androgenic:anabolic ratio of an AAS is an important factor when determining the clinical application of these compounds. Initial steroid research sought to synthesize a compound which retained a high degree of anabolic activity coupled with a diminished androgenic activity, the goal being to produce a compound with a high anabolic yet low androgenic effect, or a high A/A ratio. Since steroids were intended for medical treatment patients could include men and women, and even children. It was therefore important to avoid any androgenic effects when providing anabolic treatment. ( Edited by WUMEITECH . )
Since estrogen offers us no trouble, side effects are generally mild with this steroid. As discussed earlier, gynecomastia and water retention go unseen. So are problems controlling blood pressure, again usually associated with estrogen. Masteron is also not liver toxic, so there is little concern stress will be placed on this organ, even during longer cycles. The only prominent side effects stem from the basic androgenic properties of dihydrotestosterone. This includes oily skin, acne, body/facial hair growth, aggression and accelerated hair loss. Since this compound is already a synthetic DHT, Proscar® would have no impact on the level of androgenic effects. Men with a receding hairline (or those with a known familial predisposition for baldness) may therefore wish to stay away from Masteron completely, as the potent androgenic effect of this steroid can easily exacerbate such a condition.
