Hi
Only way to find out is to do a testosterone blood test , assuming you have done permenant damage your endocrinologist will prescribe testesterone to fix your problem ..

Good Luck

It is not sure that this is the cause ..your testosterone level may by basically low..so you can get a hormonal treatment for some time but you need to test and see an endocrinology specialist.

hi
can’t say whether you have damaged your growth plates and hormone producing cells.
needs further evaluation by blood tests and Xrays of joints.
thanks

Yes it can affect everything, but not permenantly according to the duration of using the anabolic steroids and your testesterone level in your body,

Seek pediatrics endocrinologist ASAP
