You would be best off googling as im far to lazy to find sources, testosterone deconate (DECA) is availabe on prescirption here in the UK and that can shut you down hard.

Steroids been "bad" for you all depends on what study you want to read, the side affects imo are no worse than most legal drugs (and i dont just mean alcohol etc) and most can be combated easily with the right protocols
All these fuckers who just say "stedz r bad mmmk" dont know **** all about them or any one who uses them, let alone uses them properly
I cant see how steroids shut your immune system down and ive read so many conflicting "studies" by different hospitals and colleges, most are biased and have hidden agendas, its possible when you come off them they might make your immune system weaker and also has alot to do with dosage's and compounds taken.
I often take doctors opinions with a pinch of salt
Conspiracy theory much?

If this steroid didn’t have the effect of suppressing the immune system, I might be dead now.
Some types of steroids are prescribed to transplant patients to prevent rejection of transplanted organs. How do steroids help? Why, by suppressing the immune system that would otherwise cause rejection, of course.
(Plain old testosterone is also an immunosuppressant in at least some species, though I honestly don’t know whether humans are among them. Cf. the evolution of ‘honest advertising’ handicaps in birds, for instance.)
So, no, the notion of steroids suppressing the immune system is not a lie concocted by hospitals and colleges with hidden agendas related to PED use in sports. If you mean to criticise arguments surrounding particular steroids, you’d do well to name them.
Not really relevant though is it, what you on about conspiracy theorys for?
Its the same with most studies, for every positive there will be negatives. And often there is hidden agendas depending on whos funding it as such.
Like the british cheese board reccently did a study saying cheese before bedtime doesnt give you nightmares like previously thought and it actually gives you good dreams :D yet many people have believed you should never eat cheese before bed because it gives you night mares.
Now that where well off subject and talking about cheese, I would just like to add, steroids DONT make you fat
