Anabolic steroids are drugs designed to mimic the effects of the hormone testosterone in the body. These are mainly used by athletics to boost muscle formation. In most cases, steroids are abused. Medically, these chemicals are used by doctors to induce puberty in young human males whose puberty is late in setting in. One of the esters found in testosterone, a naturally occurring androgen, is testosterone enanthate. This is naturally broken down to testosterone by enzyme esterase. Testosterone enanthate is very popular due to one major reason; it has both anabolic and androgenic effects. Its anabolic nature causes the build-up of cellular tissue, mostly in muscles while the androgenic nature causes development of masculine characteristics like testicles and voice deepening. Most men will be found using this chemical to enhance their masculine characteristics and build their muscles. The combined effects help the users to develop these traits within a very short time. The most noticeable effects are a tremendous increase in both body mass and strength.
Testosterone enanthate is an oily solution that is mostly directly administered in the muscles via an injection. Testosterone, the active ingredient is later released as a result of enzyme action.
The testosterone formed after breakdown of testosterone enanthate is converted to estrogen, though a process known as aromatase. This brings about a series of negative side effects such as hypertension, water retention, gynecomastia and oedema.
The androgenic effects of the drug trigger overproduction of male sex hormones, which cause problems such as sexual overstimulation and more frequent erections. Most people who have experienced these negative side effects are leading frustrating sexual lives. Some of them have lost spouses and girlfriends due to the inability to control themselves. The ultimate result is multiple partners and masturbation. As much as the urge for sex is more often, these men end up losing their fertility as the drug causes a colossal reduction in spermatogenesis.
This anabolic drug increases the aggressiveness of the user. This is why you will find that many of steroid users have a problem relating with other people. They easily get agitated and are rarely in good terms with anyone. In extreme cases, this affects family relationships hence frequent breakups and family misunderstandings, leading to divorce in most cases.
The fatty nature of the chemicals brings about an increase in cholesterol levels in the body. In cases of extreme intake combined with an unhealthy diet without exercise, the user ends up with heart related diseases.
Most testosterone enanthate users go through testicular atrophy. This is a medical condition whereby the testes greatly reduce in size and sometimes lose function. This condition is however temporary. The testes get back to the normal size after discontinuing use of this drug. This is dissimilar to the normal shrinking that happens when it is cold.
The side effects in a woman include clitoral enlargement, deeper voice and an increase in body hair. In case used by a pregnant woman, foetal development can be interfered with. A male foetus can develop feminine features and vice versa.
The increased testosterone in the body triggers overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands. This in turn results to acne vulgaris, a severe acne condition.
Testosterone is not only converted to estrogen. It is also turned into DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a chemical that accelerates hair loss. It binds the receptors of the hair follicles, making hair thinner and thinner until it eventually falls off.
These side effects depend on the dosage and level of usage. Large-scale users tend to have more severe side effects than small-scale users. Nevertheless, this side effect is not common in every one. People who are subjected to genetic premature baldness are more prone to this condition.
The chemical can be detected up to 3 months after discontinuing use.
