Awareness and educational efforts are working to help prevent anabolic steroid abuse in schools and communities. The Adolescents Training and Learning to Avoid Steroids (ATLAS) and the Athletes Targeting Healthy Exercise and Nutrition Alternatives (ATHENA) programs, funded by the NIDA, and supported by the Oregon Health & Science University programs is teaching athletes that they do not need steroids to build powerful muscles and improve athletic performance. These programs provide weight-training and nutrition alternatives, increase healthy behaviors, less likelihood to try steroids, and less likelihood to engage in other dangerous behaviors such as drinking and driving, use of marijuana and alcohol , and and improved body image.

Of course, we said there were two testosterone related Winstrol side-effects , the first being testosterone suppression and the second being testicular atrophy. As testosterone is manufactured in the testicles, when production is suppressed the testicles simply atrophy. They do not shrink and disappear; in-fact, in some cases the difference may not be all that noticeable. When we’re speaking of testicular atrophy we’re simply referring to the testicles losing some of their fullness. Once the use of all anabolic steroids has been discontinued and all the hormones are out of your system natural testosterone production will begin again, and your testicles will return to their normal size.
