Can an increase in testosterone decrease gnrh release?

In brief: Yes
Testosterone (from the testicles) and gnrh (from the hypothalamus) are connected by a feedback mechanism much like the thermostat in one's house.
When testosterone levels rise for whatever reason, the hypothalamus decreases its release of gnrh to help bring t back to normal levels and vice versa.

In brief: Yes
There is a "negative feedback mechanism" where high testosterone can decrease gnrh as well as fsh, LH secretion.
