Anabolic steroids are typically used to build up heavy muscles. Doctors usually prescribe anabolic steroids to treat certain specific medical conditions. For example, they can be used to treat the muscle weakening seen in AIDS. they may also be used to treat loss of testicular function or delayed puberty. Anabolic steroids are extremely powerful hormones and can affect the entire body. men or athletes who consume asteroids may:

  • Develop breasts
  • Have their testicles shrink
  • Get painful erections
  • Have decreased count of sperm
  • Become infertile
  • Become impotent
Therefore, use of anabolic steroids to gain muscle mass must be done very carefully.
