Curious About Something...


Since steroids close growth plates if used under the age of 21 ussually...and stunts growth. Is it safe to say that using steroids at a younger age...say 15-16 could stunt natural penis growth?


The reason that AAS taken too early can stunt growth is the excess estrogen that is produced. The estrogen prematurely fuses the growth plates (or something like that)

The penis doesn't have anything that would be negatively affected by a spike in estrogen.(I think)

In fact, since male characteristics are produced from androgens, if taken for long enough(at big enough dosages), I think androgens would make your penis bigger than normal, at any age.

I may be wrong,though.
