Does using Steroids increase your Blood Pressure ?
The relation between anabolic steroid abuse and blood pressure remains controversial.
A link between anabolic steroid abuse and increase in blood pressure has been reported in a majority of related studies whereas its hard to argue that some others have shown no association.
I personally support the first hypothesis – ie So yes..
The definite mechanism by which anabolic steroid increase blood pressure is not clear, but it has been suggested that overproduction of 11-β-deoxycorticosterone by adrenal cortex may be responsible.
In addition, androgens may also increase renal renin secretion resulting blood pressure increase

IMO Steroids even at what would be consider HRT doses.. directly increase BP
