Types of anabolic steroids

Anabolic steroids are of several types – oral, injectable, transdermal, and nasal sprays. The two most commonly used types of anabolic steroids, however, are the oral and injectable versions. The following is a brief discussion of the pros and cons of these two anabolic steroid types, just to give you a working knowledge of these compounds.

The oral anabolic steroids are taken by mouth and you can take them with food of milk if you tend to experience stomach upset anabolic steroids must be stored between 59º to 86º F (15º to 30º C) and you must keep them away from direct sunlight and moisture. You can take anabolic steroids in the bathroom, but do not store them there and do not freeze the liquid forms! Examples of oral anabolic steroids are Dianabol and Anadrol. Beginners typically opt for oral compounds since they are more convenient to use and are faster acting than other types of anabolic steroids.

The injectable type of anabolic steroids, on the other hand, is generally slow acting when compared to orals. However, the injectable versions are well tolerated by the body since they are not alpha-alkylated (except for Winstrol Depot) unlike most orals. Injectable oral steroids, however, tend to stay longer in the system, and thus if you undergo drug testing it is better to plan your intake of this type of anabolic steroids to avoid detection.
