    Stress effect on testosterone?


    How much of an effect can long term stress and anxiety have on testosterone levels? I admit i'm a worrier and have some anxiety issues. Would stress cause testosterone to be only a bit lower or can it really knock it down to abnormal levels in an otherwise healthy and in shape twenty something?

    in my opinion, stress lowers most hormone levels, and causes test conversion to estrogens

    stress defeats even 20 somethings, been there done that.

    I think stress has much more of an effect on cortisol than testosterone. If cortisol levels are really high, can have similar effects in the gym as low test levels.
