My 61 year old mom ran 10mg var ED for 6 weeks. Noticed increased strength, strength endurance, aggression in the gym, recovery, libido and fat loss. Negatives were significant hair loss in MPB area, high blood pressure and hematocrit, and clitoromegaly. All sides reversed when she stopped, although it took 3 weeks for blood pressure to go down.
She decided not to use it anymore and just sticks with 2iu's of chinese hgh 5/2 with great results. I can detail these if you want. She misses the libido effect of var tho and wants to try 5mg ED or another steroid. She's off now but can do a strict dead hang pullup it's pretty badass.
I did a lot of research and 10mg var ED for 4-8 weeks is any female's best starting cycle IMO. Up to 20mg if she has serious goals and sides aren't too bad. She might try 25mg ED of anadrol. Sounds crazy but do a search. Apparently it is the best bang for the buck in terms of results/sides for women. I might have my mom try this.
What are her goals? Primo for aesthetics, NPP (not deca, you want the shorter ester) for muscle, low dose test (~10-20mg EW) for libido/strength/energy/mood. Just one compound at a time though, and discontinue as soon as negative sides appear. This is important because they will reverse unless she stubbornly finishes the cycle in which case they could become permanent.
