      What are the odds of steroids causing damage to your nuts and effecting you chances of having kids later in life?

      I am only in my early 20's but would like to think i would have kids one day.


      I am on trt but the doc said he would rather wait untill i would start considering children before he would treat with hCG, as he said if using it constantly i would get desenasatised to it. I would be of the opinion that prevention is better than cure but not 100% on the practicalitys of using it long term

      Any thoughts on this? Would it be wise to maybe get some sperm frozen?

      My intention is to keep using but when the time comes to kids il stop using and start taking HCG and proviron as i think that can help.

      Few ppl have stayed on test with hcg, clomid and proviron and managed but that's not to say you will be so lucky- I think regular breaks at least yearly will help if u blast n cruise.

      I have been thinking about this a lot, and actually priced freezing sperm, 500 or so euros it costs in a local fertility clinic, im not sure if that is for storage as well etc but it was just a quick google search out of curiosity.

      The freezing sperm may sound extreme but kids and a family are always something i imagined i would have one day, and i would not like to think that I and possibly my future partner would be unhappy all because of my personal vanity ha (for want of a better way of putting it)!

      heres some light

      While anabolic steroids present many dangers to the user, and may be
      hazardous to the fetus if the mother takes them, there is no proven
      link between male steroid use and birth defects in the children
      fathered by steroid users. However, in one study of bodybuilders who
      took steroids, fewer than 1 in 5 had normal spermatozoa. The main
      risk, as far as pregnancy is concerned, is that reduced sperm count
      and inferior sperm quality can /may make it difficult for females to
      become pregnant.

      "The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of the
      administration of high doses of androgenic anabolic steroids (AAS) on
      endocrine and semen parameters. Thirty volunteering bodybuilders were
      studied (ages ranging between 26.6 +/- 4.1 years). A history of
      anabolic steroid administration was recorded for fifteen subjects, and
      results of semen analysis and endocrine parameters were compared with
      data from fifteen bodybuilders not using steroids. In those subjects
      using AAS, eight had sperm counts under the lower normal limit (20 x
      10(6) sperm/ml), three had azoospermia, two polyzoospermia, and two
      had normal sperm counts. The percentage of morphologically normal
      sperm was significantly reduced, only 17.7% had normal spermatozoa."

      Effect of androgenic anabolic steroids on sperm quality and serum
      hormone levels in adult male bodybuilders.
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...&dopt=Abstract

      "More and more men these days are using anabolic steroids to gain a
      competitive edge or become 'bulked up.' Anabolic steroids act like
      testosterone in the body. Taking the doses commonly used by athletes
      is like flooding the body with extra testosterone, which cripples a
      man's natural testosterone production and fertility. Although some
      athletes take steroids in six- to twelve-week cycles, resting in
      between in order to 'give their bodies time to recover,' it actually
      takes between six months and a year for sperm and testosterone
      production to return to normal after a course of steroid use. Anabolic
      steroids are simply bad for fertility - and ultimately bad for your
      overall health."

      BestLife Online: The Male Biological Clock
      http://www.bestlifeonline.com/cda/ar...--1736,00.html

      "The effects of medications on sperm quality and count have not been
      rigorously studied and many medicines are commonly prescribed without
      knowing whether they impair fertility. Anabolic steroids (which are
      those abused by weight lifters and other athletes) deserve special
      notice because they are known to severely impair sperm production."

      Dr. Koop: Infertility in Men - Causes
      http://www.drkoop.com/ency/93/guides/000067_4_7.html

      "Although anabolic/androgenic steroids can reduce sperm count and male
      fertility, they are not linked to birth defects [when] taken by
      someone fathering a child."

      United Pharmacy: Steroid Side effects
      http://www.united-pharmacy.com/index.php?m=sideeffects

      "Among other side effects androgenic steroids induce hypogonadotrophic
      hypogonadism with subsequent azoospermia. Over the past year we have
      noted an increased number of men attending the infertility clinic who
      have been using anabolic steroids for body building... Adverse effects
      of anabolic steroids are recognised but have mostly been studied using
      therapeutic doses. The doses used by body builders may be up to 40
      times higher than therapeutic doses. Furthermore, the multiple
      preparations used makes studying the adverse effects of individual
      drugs almost impossible. The adverse effects on male fertility
      described above are well known and are being developed for
      contraceptive use. It should also be remembered that other adverse
      effects include alteration in lipid concentrations, liver disease,
      jaundice, hepatic tumours, gynaecomastia, mood changes, reduced
      libido, dependence withdrawal effects, and prostatic carcinoma... Data
      from the development of androgenic steroids for male contraception
      indicate that reversal of effects can take up to 12 months after
      stopping the drugs."
