The search for the ideal body has been making people appeal increasingly to surgical intervention and medicine which can accelerate the aesthetic transformations that are so desired. Among these medicines, Anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) is being used, specially Nandrolone Decanoate (DECA), which has more anabolic than androgenic effects. However, it is not known at which point of the use of AAS can comprise fertility of male users. In this way, the objective of the present study was to evaluate the effects of chronic administration of doses of Nandrolone Decanoate in male Wistar rat fertility. For such a matter was used 20 rats Wistar, which 16 were males and 4 females, adults, with 8 weeks old, weighing 250 to 350g. Males were divided into two groups: Control and DECA group. Based on the data preliminarily obtained, even though observing some macroscopics abnormalities in the testicles of rats treated with DECA, such as testicular atrophy, apparently these steroids do not affect the reproductive male health significatively at the point of comprising the capacity of fertilization.(AU)
