*This post is a must read for women who are considering using Anavar (Oxandrolone)
When it comes to anabolic androgenic steroids, women are often left with limited choices, lest they want to risk getting a clitoris as large as a penis and sound like a man born with a raspy voice.
One of the compounds that’s more forgiving than the rest is Anavar, and more often than not, it’s the de-facto choice for most women bodybuilders as well as fitness models.
That’s until they are experienced enough to experiment with other drugs like Testosterone or Deca Durabolin or Primobolan.
Anavar probably stacked with Clenbuterol, T3 and some diuretics and bam! You have the perfect, dry and shredded body before a photoshoot.
However, if you are a newbie woman fitness model looking for information on an Anavar cycle, there’s not much of it readily available. All that you might get to read is regurgitated crap that talks about how the compound affects a male physique.
What about a woman’s perspective on Anavar? How will it affect you?
Here’s a brief primer for all the Jane Does looking to use Oxandrolone for the first time.
Strength gains – Week 1 onwards
The first effect of Var that will kick in are the strength gains.
Your lifts will go up and the weights start to get lighter. A lot of professional female bodybuilders add Var into their stacks at low doses purely for the strength gains.
What separates it from other orals like say Superdrol or Anadrol is that you can retain most of the strength gains for months after the cycle.
So, it’s not like you are benching 200 lbs. on Anavar and it drops down to 150 lbs. overnight when you come off it.
You can continue to bench at 190 lbs. even three months after your last pill of Var.
The rollover is incredibly mild.
Muscle Hardness – Week 4 onwards
Anavar will harden you up. If you are looking to recompose your body without risking too many androgenic side effects, this is your ticket.
The only other oral that’s better for hardening muscles is Winstrol. But that’s a whole different ball game for women. So, we recommend that you stick to the var.
Vascularity – Week 3 onwards
One of the hallmarks of a good, aesthetic physique is vascularity. And Anavar will make you extremely vascular.
Them dormant veins will come to life and the prominent ones will start popping.
You’ve still got to watch your diet ladies. Don’t expect this to be a magic pill. If you eat like shit, Var will make you hoard water like a sponge.
At the risk of sounding clichéd, ‘Steroids are not the answer. Your diet is’
You’d better dial it down before you hop on to PEDs.
Anavar For Fat Loss – Week 4 onwards
Somewhere mid cycle (assuming that you are going to run it for 8-weeks only), you’ll start to notice a more visual effect to your physique. You waist line appears to be tighter. The thin layer of fat on your biceps and back are starting to disappear.
That’s because Anavar is one of the few anabolic steroids that can burn fat.
If anyone tells you otherwise it’s because they had grossly exaggerated expectations from it.
It is not a fat burner per se. But the mild, added fat loss can definitely improve the way you look while you are on Anavar.
Use it for a cut and you should get great results.
Anavar For Lean Muscle Mass – Week 3 onwards
Anavar is one of the only anabolic steroids that won’t blow you up.
But whatever muscle you gain from it will be quality, keepable muscle tissue.
It increases protein synthesis, nitrogen retention and the production of RBC, the keys to anabolism.
Different women react differently to it. But most of them see a noticeable difference in their lats, traps and quads.
You don’t need to run it at obscenely high doses either. Usually 10mg/day is the sweet spot for most women.
But you can definitely get good gains even at 5mg/day unless you have already run multiple cycles at that dose.
Enhanced libido and mood – Week 1 onwards
Anavar can amplify your libido, particularly in the first few weeks of your cycle. So if your sex life has gone for a toss, this will restore it right back.
Most women also report a positive change to their mood. Feeling upbeat and confident.
However, there are also some who feel that it makes them less emotional. Sort of robotic where they don’t care anymore about things that would otherwise affect them.
There’s a term called ‘Varbot’, which suggests that Var might turn you into a robot.
Some women also feel more aggressive and agitated, something like the infamous roid rage that men experience.
Either way, the mental sides fade away when you come off the drug. So if its positive, enjoy while it lasts.
Missed/Delayed periods – Week 2 onwards
You might either not get your period at all during your Anavar cycle, or it may get delayed by a few days.
Some women also report a shorter period duration. Like 4 days instead of 6 with a reduced, thicker flow as compared to normal.
Your period should return to normalcy when you come off the var. However, at times it might be months before your flow returns to its pre-cycle levels.
Oily Skin – Week 2 onwards
If you are prone to oily skin and acne, then Oxandrolone can trigger some breakouts for sure. It might happen on your back or on your face.
Your hair can get oilier during cycle.
But usually its nothing crazy. Things should restore to normalcy in a few days post cycle.
Clitoris sensitivity – Week 2 onwards
While it does not increase the size of your clit, it can definitely make it more sensitive.
This can be positive or negative depending on your sex drive. The general consensus seems to veer towards positive more than negative though.
Many women also mention that it allows them to experience better orgasms.
Does Anavar Cause Voice Change? – Week 5 onwards
The chances of this occurring are close to zilch. Even if it does, it will be too minute for most women to notice.
It may also be that you are just being paranoid.
But if your friends or your partner feels that your voice is deepening, the chances of this occurring are higher at doses more than 10mg/day. Also, this effect usually kicks in towards the end of your 8-week cycle.
