Oxandrolone is less impact on the level of natural testosterone (I would even say no significant effect) but it is if not abuse, ie in moderate doses, the drug does not inhibit the axis hypothalamus-pituitary-testes. But when high dosage of Anavar, the body reacts to this decrease in gonadotropin production, thinking endogenous testosterone level is too high. Lack of stimulation of Leydig cells leads to testicular atrophy.
In turn, the suppression of natural testosterone manifests decreased libido and erectile sluggish. But this can be combated by adding gonadotropins in a course or just simply do a combined course with androgenic drugs.
