Some side effects of steroids injectionThere are many known side effects to steroids use both short term and long term. It actually depends on the type of compounds used as each compound exhibits different effects in the body. Some may report feelings of nausea, dizziness and fainting while may experience no side effects at all. On example is Robby Robinson, a professional bodybuilding champion who recently came out against the use of anabolic steroids. He claimed to have experienced nausea, dizziness, lightheadedness and almost fainted after his first injection of Primobolan.

Primobolan or methenolone enanthate generally exhibits milder side effects compared with other compounds. Some of those reported side effects were oily skin, acne, hirsutism and increased male pattern baldness. There is a possibility that reported side effects are not directly related to steroids use. It may just be effects of anxiety. Most people, even bodybuilders, have a certain fear of needles. Added to this, steroid users may not be comfortable with the idea of some foreign substance entering into the body.

There are of course real side effects to steroids injection such as coughing fits reportedly occurring after injection. This may be due to the rapid movement of the substance towards the lungs as transported by major arteries in the thigh or gluteal areas, the common sites for injection.

If you happen to experience any of this symptoms, then it is time to consider switching to orals or to re-consider taking any AAS at all
