Body Building Supplementation - How Does Creatine Affect Women Body Builders? (Part 2) :

Research has shown that creatine levels are higher in women vs. men. If you have higher creatine levels then you may not see dramatic or immedicate effects of using the supplement like someone with low creatine levels would. Excessive supplementation could lead to gastrointestinal disorders like those listed above. It is best that women use the recommended dosage and a type of creatine that is manufactured specifically for women.

Other side effects reported by females using creatine is increased frequency of urination. This may be due to the body excreting more of the supplement from the body.

There are no conclusive studies demonstrating the effects of creatine on pregnant women or the unborn child so it is best to avoid creatine supplementation when pregnant.

Research continues on the effects of creatine on women bodybuilders. There is evidence that the side effects are minor and can usually be controlled with modifying the dosage and with nutritional modifications.
