A beautiful Brazilian influencer told how her use of steroids to get a perfect gym body has ruined her sex life.
Devastated Netflix star Vanessa Carvalho, 33, claims the use of anabolic steroids caused her clitoris to grow massively bigger.
Vanessa – from the broadcaster’s reality show ‘Love Is Blind Brazil’ – says she was so appalled by the growth that she stopped having sex for five months.
She explained to local media: “At the time, I was using oxandrolone to gain muscle mass.
“I wanted to look hot, but I ended up regretting it in the end.”
But as her 14 months on steroids triggered changes to her clitoris, Vanessa said she lost her confidence and self-esteem.
She said: “I took a break from sexual intercourse. My love life and sex life were gone, and my sexual performance was abysmal.”
Vanessa says she went off sex because she no longer felt comfortable being intimate.
She explained: “It was five months without sex.”
And she only found her way back after consulting a specialist to wean her off the steroids.
Vanessa said: “I was pretty sure what was making my clitoris grow was the steroids. My doctor confirmed it.”
With the help of the specialist, the influencer says her clitoris returned to its normal size in three months.
She said: “I was afraid of not going back to the way it was before, but luckily everything worked out and everything is normal here.”
After the experience, Vanessa warned against using steroids and said she would not repeat the mistake.
She added: “I realised it’s not worth it.”
