Question: Dear any endocronoligists!


I have been told that taking the drug oxandrolone when i was in early puberty (15 years ago) still has effect now via its maturing on the HPG axis. Another doctor said that any drug taken long time ago doeasnt have a legacy at cellular level NOW. Kindly could someone clarify . Thanks and Best Regards

Thanks for writing to us.
Oxandrolone is known to prevent normal growth in children as it causes premature closure of the bone ends where growth occus. Children who take oxandrolone may end up shorter than their counterparts. Thats why serial X rays are done for children who are prescribed these drugs.
Hope that helps

Hi I used to have really good hair but lost most of it during puberty. I am now 46 years old and have severe hairfall also caused due to chemical treatments. My doctor advised me Follihair and have just started using it along with Becosules . I have noticed my urine has turned really yellow and I wonder if that is due to Follihair. Can you advise if that is the case and is that something I should worry about? Any advice on how to control my hair loss?

I am a 15 and a half year old boy and I masturbate every now and then. But I can never ejaculate! If I try, I just end up peeing a little bit. Does that mean that I'm sterile or that I'm a late developer? (By the way I am 5 foot 11 so it's not like I havent hit puberty yet....)
