Fertility and anabolic steroids

MALE FERTILITY &
ANABOLIC STEROIDS

„I would say more anabolic steroid users are likely to become sterile than you would think – 90% probably“

(Prof. Allan Pacey, University of Sheffield)

FERTILITY & ANABOLIC STEROIDS DO NOT PAIR WELL!

Male fertility and anabolic steroids

Anabolic steroids have been shown to increase muscle growth, endurance, and performance. However, the consumption of anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing substances like them can significantly endanger a man’s ability to reproduce. The use of these substances has been clinically shown to deteriorate a man’s semen quality, as well as to negatively impact his sexual potency- the ability to even carry out sexual intercourse.

Anabolic steroids threaten your chances of fatherhood.

SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN:
ANABOLIC STEROIDS CAN REDUCE FERTILITY

Studies with bodybuilders show that taking anabolic steroids regularly can severely limit male fertility.

The resulting ejaculate analyses (= spermiograms) showed that both the number of sperm and the proportion of motile and normally-shaped sperm were below the standard values of the WHO.

If you want to have children and currently use anabolic steroids, it is advisable to stop taking them immediately. It can take up to a year for your reproductive system to fully recover and for normal sperm production to resume.
