The side-effects of Testoviron are identical to all testosterone compounds, and largely surround this steroids strong aromatizing nature. This can lead to gynecomastia, excess water retention and even have a negative impact on your blood pressure. Further, like all testosterone compounds, Testoviron can have an adverse effect on LDL and HDL cholesterol levels, but all hope is not lost as the side-effects are easily avoidable for the healthy adult male. In-order to achieve this, you will need an Aromatase Inhibitor in-order to combat excess estrogen caused by the aromatizing process. Further, controlling your diet and dosing will do wonders for your protection; in-fact, if you do these things there’s no reason for a healthy adult male to have any serious issues.
There are several possible androgenic side effects of Testoviron and they are dependent on genetics. The androgenic side effects of Testoviron include hair loss, acne and body hair growth. Hair loss is not possible if you are not predisposed to male pattern baldness. If you are genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness you may find Testoviron causes you to lose some of your hair sooner than you would have, but you were going to lose it at some point anyway. Acne is similar; if acne sensitive you may find issues on your back, shoulders or chest. Staying clean and dry is very important if you are sensitive.
Important Note: Low testosterone levels can also promote hair loss.
The androgenic side effects of Testoviron are due to the testosterone hormone reducing to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This occurs due to the hormone being metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride can be used to reduce the androgenicity of the testosterone hormone if needed. However, this can potentially cause hormone imbalances if not carefully used.
The androgenic side effects of Testoviron also include virilization in women. Women who use Testoviron are almost assured virilization symptoms, which may include a deepening of the vocal chords, body hair growth and clitoral enlargement. This isn’t a commonly recommended hormone for female use.
It should be noted that in theory if one was to consistently suppress your natural estrogen levels for a long period of time, this would negatively impact your health, including your cholesterol. Due to the ability of Letrozole- to inhibit estrogen so much, this should definitely be a concern to most users. However the research that has focused on the relationship between use of letrozole and cholesterol levels is rather inconsistent in it's findings. Many studies have concluded that the compound is detrimental to both a user's HDL and LDL cholesterol levels, while other research has found no link. Obviously individuals are best served to monitor their cholesterol while using any compound via blood tests however barring that, letrozole should simply not be run for extended periods of time if at all possible. Doing so could cause serious medical complications.
Along with the issues related to blood lipids is the fact that many users complain that their libido is dramatically reduced when using the compound. This is related to the fact that estrogen is partly responsible for the regulation of an individual's sex drive. Since Letrozole- is so potent it can often drive estrogen levels too low and this inhibits a user's libido. To avoid this users can lower dosages, but some anecdotally report that even extremely low doses of the drug can cause problems. If this is the case a less potent compound such as exemestane or anastrozole may be a more appropriate option.
