This list is not exhaustive, there are several other short and long-term side effects that are caused by steroid use. Most of the effects will gradually get better after cessation of the drug. However, there are grave and permanent risks involved whether the anabolic steroid is taken orally or with an injection.
Among the widely used steroids is Deca-Durabolin. For the past three decades, Deca Durabolin steroid has delivered great gains to people looking for muscle mass and has the ability to reduce joint pain and boost the body’s immune system. The most important benefit of Deca-Durabolin for both amateur athletes and bodybuilders is that it doesn’t have serious side effects since it doesn’t convert to estrogen like other compounds. As such, Deca-Durabolin does not have severe or higher degree side effects that other compounds might have.
