The victim, Jaspreet Singh Gill, sprouted hair on her chin, cheeks and back and developed spotty, constantly itchy skin because her husband Dalwara Singh was secretly spiking her food and drink with the drugs.
The mother of two also suffered some hair loss, however her husband of 17 years told her not to go to the doctor.
Their daughter told her mother she heard her father grinding a pestle and mortar in the bedroom.
Mrs Singh broke into a locked cupboard and found the anabolic steroids, and called the police.
Singh avoided jail and was given a 12-month jail sentence, suspended for two years, with supervision.
