While it’s common for bodybuilders to suspect that Anadrol would be an even riskier choice for use by women than most anabolic steroids, actually the reverse is true. Medically, once per day dosing of 50 mg/day over extended periods has shown only a moderate rate of virilization problems . The same certainly cannot be said of Anavar, Dianabol, or Winstrol ( stanozolol .) While not necessarily sufficient for high level female bodybuilding competition by today’s standards, such a dose actually is considerably more than needed by most women for excellent results in adding muscle, losing fat, and generally improving their physiques. Half this dose — 25 mg/day, preferably taken as divided doses — is very effective and is so far as I know the lowest-risk way to obtain this degree of benefit from anabolic steroids.
Anadrol has been shown medically to have a low rate of virilization at doses considerably higher than needed for non-extreme female bodybuilding or strength training. A total dosage of 25 mg/day is only half of the minimum medical dose ever routinely used, but is remarkably effective for muscle anabolism in women. Even mg/day can be quite effective. As with any female use of oral anabolic steroids , divided doses across the day are probably safer than single-dose use for given total dosage per day, as peak levels will not be as high.
