One of the primary reasons people give for abusing steroids is to improve their athletic performance. Among professional, steroid abuse has been approximated to be lower that 6 percent according to surveys, but anecdotal information indicates more general abuse. Although examination processes are today in place to discourage steroid abuse among professional and Olympic athletes, modern designer drugs constantly become available that can break away detection and put athletes wishing to cheat one step ahead of testing efforts. This dynamic, however, may be about to shift if the delivery of urine and blood samplings for retesting at a later date goes the standard. The high chance of eventual detection of the fresher designer steroids, once the technology becomes disposable, plus the fear of retroactive sanctions, should give professional athletes pause.

Other cause people give for taking steroids (steroizi) is to increment their muscle size or to keep down their body fat. This group includes people suffering from the behavioral syndrome called muscle dysmorphia, which drives them to have a malformed image of their bodies. Adult males with muscle dysmorphia believe that they are looking small and weak, even if they’re large and powerful. Similarly, women with this condition think that they look fat and flabby, even though they’re in reality lean and muscular.

Many people who abuse steroids to gain muscle size have went through physical or sexual abuse. In a few series of questions with male weight-lifters, 25 percent who abused steroids covered memories of childhood physical or sexual abuse. Similarly, female weigh-tlifters who had been raped were found to be twice as expected to report usage of anabolic steroids or different purposed muscle building drug, compared with those who hadn’t been raped. Furthermore, nearly all of those who had been raped reported that they markedly modified their muscle building activities after the attack. They considered that being bigger and stronger would discourage further attacks because men would observe them either intimidating or unpresentable.
