For women this drug seems to be one of the more ideal drugs. That being said, it is always wiser to err on the side of caution with anabolic/androgenic steroids for a woman. I would recommend the oral version of this drug for a women to start in case she is especially susceptible to virilization. Better to be safe than sorry. The oral version is in and out of your system relatively quickly so if there would be some virilization it would be minimal. With this version you are stuck with the drug in your system for weeks. Should not be a big concern. I know of many dancers and fitness models who have used this drug to get lean and maintain strength and muscularity that have had no adverse side effect.
The exercise consisted of treadmill running, five days a week for 60 minutes per session for six weeks. Compared to the sedentary mice getting the placebo, the mice that didn’t exercise but were given mesterolone showed significant elevations of triglycerides (blood fat) total cholesterol, LDL and VLDL (a precursor of LDL). When exercise was added, the mice were higher in HDL and lower in VLDL and triglycerides. The exercise also increased blood flow in the heart, but that effect was slightly reduced in the mice on steroids. While exercise alone produced favorable effects in heart muscle structure and function, they were was blocked in the steroid mice. The net effect is that while doing aerobic exercise may partially reduce a few of the major cardiovascular risk factors raised by steroid use, steroids also interfere with the favorable changes in heart muscle structure induced by aerobic exercise. Studies of men using Proviron for six months show similar negative cardiovascular risk factor changes—lower HDL, increased LDL and total cholesterol.
