A questionnaire was sent to all bodybuilders affiliated to two Provincial Bodybuilding Associations. Out of the 80 completed returned questionnaires, 30 bodybuilders admitted to using anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS). From this sample the AAS which were most frequently reported used were nandrolone decanoate (Deca-durabolinï¿½ ) (83%), oxymetholone Anapolon-50ï¿½ ) (63%), testosterone cypionate (Depo-testosterone ï¿½ ) (57%), ethylestrenol (Orabolinï¿½ )(47%), methenolone enanthate (Primobolanï¿½ ) (30%) and testosterone propionate (Sustanon-250ï¿½ ) (40%).
