Oxymetholone is not recommended for women since it causes many and, in part, irreversible virilizing symptoms such as acne, clitorial hypertrophy, deep voice, increased hair growth on the legs, beard growth, missed periods, increased-libido, and hair loss. It is simply too strong for the female organism and accordingly, it is poorly tolerated. Some national and international competing female athletes, however, do take it during their “mass building phase” and achieve enormous progress. Women who do not want to give up the distinct performance-enhancing effect of Oxymetholone but, at the same time, would like to reduce possible side effects caused by androgen, could consider taking half a tablet (25 mg) every two days, combined with a “mild” injectable anabolic steroid such as Primobolan Depot or deca durabolin. Ultimately, the use of Oxymetholone and its dosage are an expression of the female athlete’s personal willingness to take risks. In schools of medicine Anadrol is used in the treatment of bone marrow disorders and anemia with abnormal blood formation.
