5 reasons women shouldn't use steroids

1 Steroid abuse can cause baldness, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, blood clots, urinary and bowel complications, cancer, liver damage, joint problems, ligament and tendon injuries, and unsightly acne.

2 Steroids significantly reduce breast tissue. That's why most competitive female bodybuilders have breast implants.

3 Women may end up with an enlarged clitoris. (It's trying to turn into a penis.)

4 Steroid use is likely to increase facial and body hair and deepen a woman's voice.

5 Steroids can lead to serious disruption or complete cessation of the menstrual cycle.
