Conversely, both men and women alike have about the same blood concentration of HGH through infancy, childhood, puberty, and adolescence. In adulthood, men do seem to have slightly more HGH, and for this reason, the dose for women is slightly different – between and 4IU per day, depending on goals. For most women, a dose of 1IU daily is perfect for cutting, while to 2IU per day is ideal for bulking.
In February 2009, Sports Illustrated reported that Alex Rodriguez tested positive for two AAS, testosterone and metenolone enanthate, while playing for the Texas Rangers in 2003. He claims to have purchased them over the counter, in the Dominican Republic . However, " boli ," as he referred to it, is an illegal substance in the Dominican Republic.   In an interview with ESPN two days after the SI revelations, Rodriguez admitted to using banned substances from 2001 to 2003, citing "an enormous amount of pressure to perform," but said he had not since then used banned performance-enhancing substances.   He said he did not know the name(s) of the particular substance(s) he was using, and would not specify whether he took them in injectable form.
