Long Term Hormone Use

I would like to understand how steroids, and other hormones, might be used in the longterm.

Browsing the forums and reading the articles has enabled me to understand a bit more about cycling, but I’ve been curious about the long-term as well.

People who get hormonal replacements (thyroid, testosterone) are on these things for life. Can someone who wants to optimize their physiology (someone who isn’t clinically deficient) take hormonal replacements for life. If so, what are the effects. What kind of negative feedback occurs, and does it matter?

If this has been discussed elsewhere, I’d love to read a few links.

yes, its been discussed. HIS NAME IS ANTHONY ROBERTS. he is on testosterone year long and it was a choice he made.
