Anabolic steroids are best known for their use among men in the bodybuilding world, where bigger is always better. They work by imitating male hormones, especially testosterone. This produces a masculinizing effect in both men and women. Surprisingly, this hasn’t stopped many women from injecting it into their bodies.
Candace Armstrong became addicted to Trenbolone, a steroid she ordered online to pump up her arms. It soon became an obsession that spun out of control as other changes manifested. Candace told Sunday People for the mirror.UK, “I was getting a bit of facial hair, belly hair, and my voice got deeper. My periods stopped. But I just blocked out a lot of it. I shaved and tried to cover things up. It was gradual, so it wasn’t so much of a shock.”
