Steroid Cycle and Conceiving a Baby
Posted by cpaddon on October 20, 2017
There is such opinion among the people that conceiving a baby on the steroid cycle is impossible. Today, we will discuss this question because it is very important for the athletes. Clearly, that athletes become father and mother. Let’s try to understand it is possible to conceive a baby during the cycle and which effects can appear.
How influence steroids on the process of conceiving a baby?
AAS influences on the male and female body in different ways because of the physiological characteristics. Let’s see how the anabolic drugs can influence on the on the representatives of each gender.
Strong physical activity can weaken the body but steroids help to restore the human body faster. According to this fact, it will be better to wait for the end of the cycle and only after it to conceive a baby. The athlete can begin it during the PCT (post cycle therapy) which is necessary after every cycle.
The child is not in danger because all the steroids are derivatives of testosterone. There are a lot of situations when athletes could conceive the children during the cycle and they born completely healthy. The main problem is that all AAS are contraceptive drugs for a male organism.
It is important to note that sperms activity decreases during the use of anabolic steroids. The conceiving during this situation is impossible.
However, some sperm remains enough active to fertilize an egg. It is responsible for the conception of girls and they have a low speed of movement at the same time are hardy. This can explain the fact that bodybuilders have more often daughters.
Sportswomen can also use anabolic steroids for achieving great results. However, the desire to become a mother does not decrease from this. The most of the steroid drugs which are used women have strong fat burning properties. The number of adipose tissue decreases. The scientists have demonstrated that for the conceiving, the woman should have in the organism a certain amount of fat. Adipose tissue does the role of the protective shell. All these facts mean that woman can’t conceive a child during the taking anabolic steroids. Initially, it is recommended to wait while all metabolites of AAS will be utilized. This process takes about 3 months.
The hormonal background is very far from the norm during the cycle. It is because of the taking testosterone derivatives. In the result appears the serious risk that a child can be born with any disorders.
Directly, AAS can’t change DNA, but because of such work of endocrine system which is observed during the cycle, all is possible to happen.
Also, should be noted some facts connected with the steroid use:
- AAS can’t influence on the woman’s fertility. But we already said that it is important to wait when the body will not have any metabolite of the steroid.
- Anabolic steroids increase metabolic processes but can’t destroy or change DNA.
- If the conceiving a child happened on the cycle and woman continues to use anabolic drugs, then it is necessary to consult with the doctor and to control the pregnancy.
