I would like to hear both anecdotal and scientific evidence about this issue.
You already have. How much more would it take to convince you?
Actually I never believed either of them to be true, from a gut scientific point of view. I can’t see how taking exogenous testosterone could decrease the sex drive or make your penis smaller.
Evidently though there is a conception out there that both of those things are true.
Like any other claim to knowledge it’s either true or false and could be proved to be with empirical data based on studies, in the same manner that the FDA does with any other drug to prove drug side effects and instances of reported side effects.
Since there probably aren’t any of these trials because the drugs are illegal I will just have to present my wife with arguments and anecdotal evidence. I was even going to send a few people to this thread.
I also find it hard to believe that I am the only person who is married and or in a serious relationship who has this problem.
Oh yeah, she is also worried about me turning into a wife beater filled with roid rage,lol.
Your penis will not shrink no matter what steroid you take, guaranteed. So don’t worry about this. If you, however, do decide to run a steroid cycle, your balls will shrink to an extent unless you take HCG, which will prevent the atrophy of the testes.
I believe it is only the 19-Nor steroids that decrease libid, being Trenbolone and Decadurabolun (are there any others?). So unless you take one of these, your libido will increase. Someone correct me if I’m wrong. If you take testosterone, you will have raging boners all day long.
There have been studies on the emotional effects that steroids have on humans, and in the one I read, a great percentage (don’t remember the exact) said that they had increased aggression, but 100% of them said that it was manageable. People who do actually hurt people while on steroids had problems to begin with.
