Does intake of steroids cause lack of testosterone production in body?

I used to be a body builder and took some steroids. I have had 2 heart attacks and a quadruple bypass, and still get very out of breath. I am overweight now with not being able to exercise! but the main problem is I think i do not produce enough testosterone, and to much estrogen as my man boobs are really large in comparison with my body. I am on lots of heart tablets, and type 2 diabetic also. Can you help?

I have been in treatment for schizophrenia and the drug I used has lowered my testosterone till such an extent that my bones are thin and I do not have a deep voice. My younger brother is normal and his body is awesome and his voice is deep. Please inform me of the strongest steroid which can bring my testosterone levels back to normal or maybe even higher. Please also inform me whether my overall growth of muscles, facial hair, bone density and sexual desire will return as I am 23. Thank you.

Hi I am a 20 year old male and I have stage 2 Gynecomastia. I way 170 pounds low body fat %. I got Gynecomastia from the use of Steroids. I keep getting hit with estrogen, is it possible that these man tits are converting testosterone into Estrogen? It really sucks. Its like 1 step forward 2 steps back. I workout. have some lean mass, trying to get rid of this condition, but it feels like whenever I gain any natural boost in testosterone my estrogen levels just rise. My question is. is it possible that its not only aesthetically disturbing but converting male hormones into female.?
