As we discussed above, Dianabol carries a strong aromatizing nature, and is a C17-aa anabolic steroid; as such, its side-effects will revolve around these factors. As an aromatizing steroid, this means there can be a testosterone to estrogen conversion, and if estrogen levels go to high it can lead to some complications. When estrogen levels increase, the hormone can attach to the receptors and cause gynecomastia (male-breast enlargement) and it can also promote excess water retention and high blood pressure; Dbol is notorious for promoting high blood pressure. Needless to say, if you already suffer from high blood pressure you should not touch this steroid, but if it's healthy you'll need to ensure it stays this way. For this reason, in-order to combat and avoid these estrogenic side-effects of Dbol, the use of an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) is often advised. It shouldn't be too hard to see how this can help; after all, an AI inhibits aromatase, but it goes a step further by reducing the body's total estrogen levels. Of course, and this cannot be overstressed, you must keep your doses at a responsible level; most will need at least 20mg per day for any anabolic promotion, with a maximum dosing of 50mg per day. It should be noted; if you've never used this steroid before, you should not start with a high end dose; start low and see how you respond.
Masteron is a highly androgenic injectable steroid that is derived from DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT does not aromatize to estrogen (and in fact may combat estrogenic sides), and as a result, there was no noted water retention during administration nor gynocomastia. Masteron is almost exclusively used during the last 4-5 weeks before a bodybuilding show at a dose of 100-mg every second day. Additionally, according to available literature, Masteron is not much of a mass drug, and it's always used for cutting, from what I've seen reported. Masteron has a receptor binding ability above that of testosterone, due to it's being DHT-derived, which should impart lypolytic (fat-burning) effects above that of testosterone, and also give it a nice strength building component.
