Winstrol can be taken in either orally or through injections. The injections of Winstrol are reported to be slightly more uncomfortable than other anabolics, but are less stressful on the liver than the oral form. The injections provide the benefit of avoiding a “second run” through the liver, which can limit the strain on the liver caused by anabolic use.
