Proviron on the cycle

Side effects of Proviron

Proviron is considered one of the safest steroids of its kind. It causes only minor side effects for men. Often they have no place at all. However, the picture changes when we consider its impact on the female body.

As a rule, experts do not recommend using this steroid for the female cycle. There is a very high probability of virilization problems. In most cases, it promotes abundant hair growth in different parts of the body and sufficient expansion of the clitoris. In addition, it can make the voice deeper. Therefore, if women want to retain femininity, it would be best to opt out of using this steroid.

Taking into account the cases of men, Proviron can cause cholesterol and blood pressure disorders, a slight limitation of natural testosterone production and acne cases. In addition, it can negatively affect the strength of the hair. If you are naturally predisposed to hair loss, this will worsen the condition of the hair follicles. Also, in other case, it can increase the growth of body hair.
