Age 16 years and 9 months I took 1 testosterone enanthanate shot around 250mg-500mg .. I stopped after one shot. I was going to use to build strength for football but stopped after that one shot after reading side effects of stunted growth and messing up sexual development. Did I stunt the girth growth of my penis my penis seems average in length but I think I'm still growing in girth. Also did I stunt my bone growth? I've asked this question before .. I just want another opinion. Thanks

Brief Answer:
Dont worry

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I really understand your worries after taking the injection with regards to it's side effects. But I would like to assure you that only one injection wouldn't do any harm to your testosterone production or penis length or bone maturation. Only if taken repeatedly every few weeks for 4 to 6 months, the side effects are pronounced . This has been published in various studies.

So one dose shouldnt be harmful if within the recommended dose ( in your case it is within the range )
Refrain from further doses, you should be fine.

Wishing you good health
Dr Arun

Are doctors telling me it didn't have an affect on my penis cause it's a sensitive subject ... Or. Are they telling me the truth ? Could it have negatively affected penis growth at all? I mean if my testosterone was messed up for a month or two I could have grown a lot right? Please help thanks man ... Please give me your honest opinion ..
