Researchers from King’s College London are conducting an online survey about strategies to treat and prevent the adverse effects of anabolic steroids.

Participants must be 16 years old or more, living in the UK and have used anabolic steroids in the last 12 months.

Those who complete this anonymous survey can enter a prize draw for one of five £50 Amazon vouchers.


All data is stored in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 2018.

Hello everyone
This study is part of my PhD research at KCL. If you have any questions or comments, I’d be happy to talk about it.

Hi Danny,
Thank you for your reply. I know this is a small incentive, but it was the best we could do with our current funding. Participants that want to be invited for an interview will receive a £20 voucher - again not a lot, but we are having a very good response of people sharing their experiences. I really hope this study can add to the knowledge of the best ways to treat and prevent adverse effects of steroids. Hopefully, this will support more training for doctors and maybe even more specialised steroid clinics across the country.
Please feel free to take part.

"What sex were you assigned at birth?"

What is this lefty nonsense^

I have a feeling this "study" will be used to help push gear even more into the illegal category. I'm not contributing to someone's planned war on steroids

Hi Tonysco, thank you for your comment.

I respect your opinion, but war on steroids is definitely not the drive of this study.

The whole idea of harm reduction is to respect people's choices and give them support to prevent and treat side effects if there are any. Like the work done in Glasgow's IPED clinic, where people can get free injection equipment, advice in safe injection techniques and blood tests. Is it working? Should we have more of these? What else can be done to support people who choose to use steroids?

The 'sex assigned at birth' question is just because the survey needs to adapt the questions to 'male' or 'female' potential side effects such as gynecomastia or irregular periods. It was worded this way to prevent confusion with gender options.
