Testosterone or anabolic steroids can interfere with male fertility
The societal influence
We are bombarded by “Low T” television and magazine advertisements with the inevitable advice “Ask your Doctor” prior to use. Primary care physicians are often asked to prescribe the advertised drug and, unfortunately, some physicians give in.
Many men will try to treat themselves, using whatever remedy they may believe will benefit them most. Whether they receive advice from family or friends, or scout the web for the most recent supplement or trend, they may begin their own testosterone treatment without consulting a physician or fulling understanding the impact.
Athletesinterested in enhancing their performance are more likely to succumb to the temptation of using anabolic steroids. According to a recent poll, there are more than 1 million current or former steroid users in the United States. Androgens are often taken in high doses, up to 100 times the dose used in replacement therapy.
