Im not saying at all that it has to be run for a minimum of 16 weeks or that 600 is the minimum I’m just speaking from my own 100% strictly based on my results with drug and from the man who taught me about most of my gear use (very well known but I won’t say a name). I tried running Eq at lower doses and saw absolutely NOTHING from it from multiple dealers both domestic and overseas. 600mg is where I finally start to see some noticeable gains from it mostly in recovery/increased stamina. Once I pushed it to 900 I saw those traits magnified greatly, along with a massive increase in appetite, and from a strictly vain aspect this is when the absolute gross gross and spider web veins appeared for me. As for the 16 weeks time frame once again for me the longer i ran it better the gains were. I have ran it for up to 24 weeks at varying doses from 600-1200mg a week.
Equipoise can produce androgenic side effects such as acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. However, the overall androgenicity of this steroid is greatly reduced due to the structural nature that creates EQ in its double bond at the carbon one and two position. Such side effects of Equipoise are still possible, but they will be strongly linked to genetic predisposition, but most will find the threshold is fairly high.
When combating the possible androgenic side effects of Equipoise, it’s important to note they are brought on by the steroid being metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This metabolism will reduce Boldenone to an extremely potent androgen in dihydroboldenone, far more potent than dihydrotestosterone (DHT); however, the total dihydroboldenone activity has proven to be extremely low in human beings. You will further find the androgenic nature of Boldenone will not be significantly affected by 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride that are often used to combat the reduction to DHT.
Due to the androgenic nature of Equipoise, women may potentially experience virilization symptoms. Virilization symptoms may include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. However, the low androgenicity will make this steroid possible to use for some women without such symptoms. At the same time, the extremely slow acting nature of the compound can make it difficult to control regarding blood levels, and alternative steroids may be preferred. Without question, individual sensitivity will dictate a lot. If Equipoise is used and virilization symptoms begin to show, use should be discontinued immediately at their onset and they will fade away. If symptoms begin to show and are ignored, the symptoms may become irreversible.
