This video is a physician’s explanation of sex on and off steroids, and the steroid side effects that can affect sexual function and cause erectile dysfunction. In my practice I see that steroids have affected men’s nitric oxide production, and also a link between endothelial dysfunction (damaged lining of the blood vessels) and ED. I also see steroids complicating depression and anxiety. I conclude this video with a discussion of treatment options.

Stay Strong and Healthy,
As the Anabolic Doc, since 2003, I’ve provided men who are using or have used anabolic steroids a confidential, ethical and professional medical venue to discuss their use. I do NOT in any way support the use of any performance enhancing drugs – PEDs, anabolic steroid or other medicine for muscle building or body transformation. The “off-label” use of PEDs, as such agents is considered elicit and may lead to adverse health outcomes. Please consult an expert health professional regarding any medical agent and do NOT use any medicine without the explicit advice and supervision of an appropriate medical expert.
This video is for education and information only. This is not medical advice. Only take medications as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take illegal substances. Taking steroids can lead to serious health consequences.
