A serious side-effect of Testosterone Isocaproate in males is that causes the body to stop the natural production of testosterones in the body. Testosterones are male sex hormones produced naturally in the body. When the body gets testosterone's from other sources, it slows down its own production. If the user continues with the external intake, the body may stop producing testosterone's naturally altogether.
Aromatization is another side-effect of Testosterone Isocaproate. Aromatization occurs when testosterone convert into estrogens. These estrogens being the female sex hormone attach with the breast tissues and get deposited there causing breast enlargement in men. Water retention is another problem which occurs with steroids. When fluids collect under the skin, the muscles do not look ripped anymore. For these reasons, the use of an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) is often advised; an AI will inhibit the aromatase process which causes the conversion of testosterone into estrogen and will even lower the body’s estrogen levels. With the use of an AI, there is no reason for gynecomastia and water retention to be an issue.
Excess of Testosterone Isocaproate can be harmful to the skin and the hair. Testosterone Isocaproate can cause acne in extremely sensitive individuals if there is a large Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) buildup due to conversion, but it normally takes a significant buildup and sensitive skin. If acne occurs, it will most commonly be found on the shoulders, back and chest. Hair loss is another possible side-effect of Testosterone Isocaproate but it is extremely rare. The only steroids that can truly promote hair-loss are once again DHT compounds, but a conversion can take place here that can cause some men to lose some of their hair. Fortunately, this only applies to men who are predisposed to male-pattern baldness, if you are not predisposed there is no risk. If you are predisposed and experiencing a large DHT buildup, the use of Finasteride can offer you protection.
Testosterone Isocaproate is an excellent steroid which works wonders both on an individual level as well as in combination with other esters in steroids like Sustanon-250 and Omnadren. It has some adverse side-effects like gynecomastia, water retention and inhibition of the natural production of testosterone's. Testosterone Isocaproate can also have a possible negative effect on the skin and it can damage the hair too, but as discussed above this is highly unlikely in most men. Side-effects of steroids usually remain in check if the correct dosage is followed, but athletes and bodybuilders in order to obtain rapid results often use steroids excessively. This excessive use of steroids surfaces when side-effects become serious in nature. Testosterone Isocaproate remains active in the body for a week to ten days. Keeping this in mind the recommended dose for Testosterone Isocaproate is 250 mg/week for starters and up to 1000 mgs/week for serious bodybuilders and athletes.
Beyond the above, it must be stated, Testosterone Isocaproate should not be used by women as it carries an extremely high virilization rating. Further, like all anabolic steroids, this compound should not be used by children. Adolescents will severely damage their fragile androgen system when supplementing with anabolic steroids, and often this damage will be irreversible. When it comes to Testosterone Isocaproate, supplementation should only be considered by healthy adult men, and this means you have no blood pressure, cholesterol or prostate issues.
