I took anabolic steroids and my voice has deepened. What can I do or take to restore the feminine quality of my voice? My own voice frightens me sometimes, especially during lovemaking. It’s just not sexy anymore.
One of the known side affects of anabolic steroids is that they cause the vocal cords to grow. Larger vocal cords make lower, deeper sounds. Only a qualified medical doctor can tell you what, if anything, you might be able to do to reverse the effects. If you work with a voice therapist or coach, they might be able to help you refine the use of the vocal cords and understand your resonance in order to produce a higher, more feminine sound but this will only serve if it does not cause stress and laryngeal elevation.
