There are various levels of HGH production in th body where it is at its best when one is in their 30's and the least when one is in the 80's. There is also benefit of halting the aging process and muscle development. Also HGH is responsible for various functions of the body like fighting stress.

steroids canadaTesticle shrinkage - the body responds to testosterone overload by cutting back its own production of the hormone. When steroid usage stops, the testicles will grow again but they could take at least six months to return to normal size. This makes the testicles to shrink due to lack of use.

As muscles get bigger and bigger and stronger and stronger, they can create more pull force than a tendon can happily handle.  Larger muscles put more pull on the tendons they attach to. Partly, it's a matter of physics.

When you add in the extra strength from Steroid enhanced muscle, this can set an athlete up for increased risk of injury. This strains the tendon, and can help lead to increased wear and tear injury, as well as increased possibility of a tendon rip which usually happens in the area where the muscle starts turning into tendon.  
Steroid enhanced sports and injures aren't any worse than any other kind of injury, but steroid use plays a role on several levels.  This does stimulate the body to pack on more muscle, but also causes strain and a large degree of micro-tear.  
If the muscle growth was slow the tendon could possibly have time to strengthen itself and keep up.  
Not only that, but the sudden increase in strength often causes a steroid user to increase the weights they are pushing as fast as they can.  
It's hard enough for tendons to withstand the forces regularly placed upon them by top level athletes. It kicks in an Inflammation response which hastens the Pain Causing Dynamic. But generally with steroid use and weight training, muscle growth out paces the natural strengthening of the muscle's tendon.  More tightness, more pain, more damage to the tendon, all add up to cause 'injury'.  
Add to that all the muscle tightness and wear and tear from the athlete's normal activity routine, and it's a perfect environment for developing Tendonitis.  That's why most of the time injury just comes out of the blue, like the athlete does the same thing they'be been doing, but this time it caused pain that won't go away.  The body feels pain and reacts to it, even if it doesn't tell the conscious brain about it.  
And then the body does what it always does around injury large or small.  It is a pattern that has been growing and growing and then that one last pitch just sends it over the edge.  
Steroids themselves don't cause Tendonitis, but due to their effects on the body and what the athlete does with their new strength ... (more)
