Choosing Orals vs Injectables

So, you have an interest in using anabolic steroids. Maybe you are brand new to the game, maybe you’ve done a cycle, maybe you’re very experienced, or maybe you’ve only used one method or type of steroid in the past. Whatever your reasons, here is the lowdown on the most common steroids in the oral and injectable categories.
Anabolic steroids have many effects on the body, including increasing muscle mass, performance, endurance, shortened recovery times, increased strength, increased libido, can treat delayed puberty or conditions that lead to muscle loss (cancer, HIV, or AIDS, etc.) and the list goes on. They can have some adverse effects as well, such as acne, enlarged male breasts, increased red cell count, hair growth r loss, low sperm count and infertility, as well as other more serious conditions, which typically become more prevalent with higher doses of the substance you choose. 
Injectable steroids are usually administered either intramuscularly or subcutaneously. These formulations of injectable steroids come in depot preparation, and there is a low release from the site of injection. This means there can be a longer frequency of administration. 
One benefit of injectable forms of steroids are that it surpasses the fast pass metabolism in the liver, meaning they are less likely hepatoxic (unlike oral forms). Many bodybuilders prefer injectables because of the steady levels of the compound in the bloodstream, which makes the muscle bulking effects more sustainable.
The main forms of injectable steroids include: 
- Boldenone undecylenate (Equipoise), or “EQ”
- Methenolone enanthate (Primobolan), or “Primo”
- Nandrolone decanoate (Deca Durabolin), or “Deca”
- Nandrolone phenpropionate (Durabolin), or “NPP”
- Testosterone cypionate (Depotest), or “Test Cyp”
- Testosterone enanthate (Andro-Estro), or “Test E”
- Testosterone propionate (Testex), or “Test Prop”
- Trenbolone acetate (Finajet), or “Tren”
Oral forms are taken by mouth, usually in pill form, tablet, and liquid suspensions or emulsions. One benefit to taking oral anabolic steroids is that swallowing/ingesting the compound is usually more pleasant than performing injections. For some, injections can be painful or even unbearable. Some people require a second person to administer the injection to ensure accuracy and safety. Oral steroids also require less effort, and it can be easier to take daily either in one dose or in divided doses, depending on the compound or user preference. 
Oral steroids can be more convenient for your body to handle also. The formulation of the compound pass through the gastrointestinal system, then undergoes faster in passing the metabolism in the liver. Because of this, oral steroids are considered as the most hepatoxic. 
Sometimes, orals can have side effects such as bloating, nausea, or vomiting. However, many people still prefer oral steroids despite these side effects, because of how potent they are and how easy they are to administer. 
The most common orals include:
- Fluoxymesterone (Halotestin), or “Halo”
- Mesterolone (Proviron)
- Methandienone (Dianabol), or “Dbol”
- Methyltestosterone (Virilon)
- Mibolerone (Cheque)
- Oxandrolone (Anavar, Oxandrin), or “Var”
- Oxymetholone (Anadrol), or “Drol”
- Stanozolol (Winstrol), or “Winny”
Many steroids are available in both oral and injectable form. 
You can obtain anabolic steroids from online pharmacies which are located where steroids are legal, and have them shipped directly to you, or very rarely a physician can give you a prescription, but it is usually a much lower dose. When choosing an online pharmacy, its important to go with a pharmacy who is large, trusted, has a variety of products or brands, and has customer reviews. Often, large, and trusted online pharmacies do laboratory testing on compounds from random batches, usually indicated by a marker where you can view the certificate of analysis. Sometimes finding a reputable pharmacy can be challenging, but by becoming engaged in discussions, communities, or forums about bodybuilding and anabolic steroids, you can find a reputable source. Generally, it is advised to avoid buying from people who make their own product or who have not done some form of testing, such as people you meet in real life. Buying directly from a legitimate and reputable pharmacy is how you get the safest and most effective compounds.
