Is testicle shrinkage and lower sex drive really due to anabolic steroids, or is that a myth?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Fact not fiction
Anabolic steroids supress gonadotropins which are hormones which stimulate testes to produce testosterone.
Also can shrink the testes. Sex drive will be reduced if the anabolic steroid used is not testosterone. They also reuce life expectancy, so be warned.
