Using Steriods while family planning
Hi Guys

Can someone fall pregnant while her mate is using steroids (testosterone) ?

me and my wife is busy with family planning. I want to start with a new cycle of steroids (testosterone) again. Will this influence my wife? Can she still fall pregnant?

HI Pieter

Why do you want to use steroids? And more to the point, unless you have some pre-existing medical condition, the use of steroids is illegal and should not be practiced. Among other things, infertility could be one side effect, but things like cardiovascular disease, liver failure and brain damage are the more serious side-effects. So really, unless you need to be on steroids for some reason that is medically viable, you should get off them as quickly as possible, it's dangerous and illegal.

Good luck
