Dianabol has an anabolic and androgenic rating of (Range): 90-210:40-60, this means it more anabolic than Testosterone in most instances, but is slightly weaker in the androgenic department. So what does this mean for women athletes and bodybuilders? Well, it means that it isn’t suited that well for those wishing to avoid the dreaded virilisation side effects. Dianabol can be used but sparingly for wanting to avoid Dianabol side effects and get decent mass gains in lean tissue and to aid in reducing body fat. Virilisation causes the vocal chords to deepen in females, acne, hair loss and receding hair line in the scalp and hair growth in male’s areas, such as facial hair. Lastly, it can also cause the enlargement of sexual organs (clitoris) when Dianabol is abused by using too high a dose or when used for extended periods. Generally, there are better suited anabolic steroids that women can use and not worry about these sides, but it can be used at low doses of 5-10mg every other day. But even then, the amount of actual positive gains from such a small dose is minimal for females.
