Steroid Use and Fertility

I have been cruising the net in search of info on prolonged steroid use and fertility. I have been finding mixed information. I am interested in the opinions from some of the more informed members on this forum. Do you believe prolonged use will have a PERMANENT effect on sperm count and quality? For simplicity sake lets classify prolonged use as being “ON” 9 out of the 12 months of the year consistently. I ask simply because I find the quality of my life to be much better when on. To be honest i find muscualr size and strength secondary on my list of AAS benefits.

I have far more energy, a higher sex drive, im more productive at work, more confident, and my levels of stress are far far lower. The only thing stopping me from being “ON” for the majority of my life is that i may not be able to have children later on. Do you believe there are measures that can be taken to increase fertilty when needed later on?

Anyone? Any experiences to share?

I wouldn’t worry too much. The evidence points that not even all steriods cause azospermia in all users anyways. I have a friend who got his g/f pregnant while using 100mg of tren per day, (and he never goes off)

If anything you should avoid x-rays, and sitting with your cell phone in you pocket or lap.

Using AAS isn’t any different then women using birth control. the body returns to normal once the cycle is finished, provided you haven’t abused it with HCG, and there are no lingering amounts of progesterone, or estradiol to cause suppression.

lol! thats what I though too, but then again there have been lots of juicers in the media that have a lot of kids. e.g. Hulk Hogan, HHH just had kids… Arnold has kids e.t.c. Fertility is not as big an issue as you think, most men who have problems with this are more due to genetics, or radiation exposure at somepoint.

lol Hulk Hogan thats funny he was in the paper today and i was thinking the exact same thing.
