Another positive effect of deca-durabolin was reported by many bodybuilders who prior using this drug experienced pains in joints but once using it they started to enjoy training with no pain and that is attributed to deca’s ability to store more water in connective tissues.
However there are some moments which must be known by you before you start using nandrolone decanoate , it has a very strong effect on decreasing your sexual drive and it can cause gyno in some individuals. So have Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) on hand in case you feel gyno symptoms.
Gynecomastia is mostly triggered by a hormonal imbalance between estrogen and testosterone in the body. As pointed out earlier, for bodybuilders the imbalance can be due to the testosterone supplement that causes estrogenic conversion as a common side effect. Since gynecomastia is a byproduct of hormonal imbalances, when your estrogen and testosterone levels go back to normal, the condition disappears. The hormones are balanced in one of two ways; either by discontinuing the supplements or by counteracting the imbalance with yet another supplement that is commonly used to treat the condition.
For decades many athletes who use anabolic steroids have supplemented with the SERM Tamoxifen ( Nolvadex ) to combat such issues. Nolva, as it is commonly known acts to block the estrogen from binding to the receptors; it does not reduce estrogen as is commonly thought by many who take it. However, while this is a solid prevention measure, for many it is not enough and only an aromatase inhibitor will do. An aromatase inhibitor will actually reduce the amount of estrogen in the body and bind it what’s left. While perhaps not completely accurate but to give you an idea, for the prevention of Gynecomastia when steroids are present look at Nolva like Aspirin and aromatase inhibitors like morphine; far stronger. The two most common aromatase inhibitors that will in most cases get the job done include Anastrozole ( Arimidex ) and Femara ( Letrozole .)
