Many abusers who inject anabolic steroids use nonsterile injection techniques or share contaminated needles with other abusers. In addition, some steroid preparations are manufactured illegally under non-sterile conditions. These factors put abusers at risk for acquiring life-threatening viral infections, such as HIV and hepatitis B and C. Abusers also can develop infective endocarditis, a bacterial illness that causes a potentially fatal inflammation of the inner lining of the heart. Bacterial infections also can cause pain and abscess formation at injection sites.
No, bitch. I was a NYC escort for over five years, "work is NOT work". Sorry, but you've been brainwashed into believing the lie. I'm ABSOLUTELY certain that you have never been in porn, or escorting due to your silly, misguided, and downright stupid and naive idea that just because people don't like their regular jobs, that it's comparable to doing porn and escorting. You're a fucking fool who has bought the LIE that the porn and escort business has sold you: THAT the escorts or porn actors are empowered, lmao. They're not empowered, the people waiving the dollar bills around are the ones who are in power for the most part. Now, YOU'D probably have tried to go into porn or escorting, IF YOU COULD HAVE, but nobody would have paid for you, you don't have the looks, that is evident from everything you say.
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
