The use of steroids and other Performance and Image Enhancing Drugs (PIED's) is quite normalised amongst LGB&T communities, and their use is most often associated with health fitness.


Myth and word-of-mouth provide most of the information available about steroid use, and often information on websites is misleading or poorly informed. The pharmacology is complicated, and even the most well-meaning advice can be incorrect or misunderstood.
Being aware of the safest use of steroids and PIED's is important – from stacking anabolic and androgenic compounds cleverly together, to protecting your muscles, mood and health between cycles, to free and clean injecting equipment and instruction on correct injecting procedure.


It is important to check in with your self-esteem from time to time as steroids tap into our body-image issues and we can begin to feel inadequate or unattractive without them.
New trends emerge all the time in this field as well, and products such as the Human Growth Hormone and fat-burners can all be harmful without the correct advice.


An Antidote worker at London Friend can discuss all this with you, and more. From arranging liver-function tests, advice on interactions with HIV medications, clean needles and correct injection procedure, workout advice and sports-nutrition tips, understanding Post-Cycle-Therapy (PCT) and checking in with your self-esteem.
