Gynecomastia, commonly known as gyno or “man boobs” can be described as a situation where men’s breasts become larger than normal.  It affects one or both breasts and in some cases, the tissue can be quite tender and painful. Gyno commonly occurs in 65% of males between the ages of 12-15 years old as they go through the puberty stage. However, it also occurs in men later in life.

Did you say Steroids?

Steroids can be defined as doping synthetic products which are intended to perform like the testosterone. They are known to increase muscle mass, strength, endurance and faster recovery after sessions during practice. Steroids are used mainly by sprinters, weightlifters, and bodybuilders who want to increase muscle mass through doses 25 times the recommended therapeutic doses!

While it is recognized that the use of anabolic androgenic steroids can dramatically accelerate decision muscle, intramuscular injections and pills can be harmful, or dangerous to the health of its users.


Many bodybuilders who use steroids suffer from gyno. When you use steroids, the testosterone levels rise. Since the body is being supplied from an external source, natural production comes to a standstill. After the steroid cycle ends, the body needs a lot of time to enhance its natural testosterone production. That’s how gyno is born.

Steroids and Gynecomastia

A person who gets Gyno from steroids should stop taking the pills and consult a doctor on the best course of treatment. Cosmetic surgery is one of several treatment options for Gynecomastia, and its effectiveness can vary from person to person.

Types of Steroids that Cause Gynecomastia

One thing we should understand is that not all steroids lead to Gyno, but they all have their respective side effects. Only those steroids that aromatize lead to Gynecomastia. Sustanon, Anadrol, and Dianabol are all common steroids that cause Gynecomastia, but there are others.
