For women, things are a bit different. They do not need SERMs because they produce so little testosterone naturally that suppression isn’t as detrimental. However, Anavar and Winstrol act much like testosterone in the female body, and using the combination over the course of four to six weeks can create a hormonal imbalance. Women who simply come off steroids cold turkey, even after a few weeks, may notice undesirable effects like fatigue and irritability. To avoid this, simply reducing dose toward the end of the cycle can help tremendously.
With that said, some women do experience side effects when they simply go off steroids after a long cycle. This is because Anavar is, in fact, a hormone, and any kind of hormone fluctuation in the female body can lead to unwanted effects. These may include things like hot flashes or mood swings – things women may experience during menopause as their hormones begin to decrease. Fortunately, even though PCT isn’t necessary, it is possible to avoid most of these side effects with a tapering dose at the end of the cycle. The chart below shows an example of a tapering 10-week cycle.
