Blood parameters and testosterone hormone were measured within 20th, 40th, and 60th days after exposure. Orchictomy were done by surgical methods after 60th days for histopathological examination. The results revealed highly changes in testis such as atrophy, hyper atrophy, blood vessel congestion and suppression of spermatogenesis, blood parameter also changed and testosterone levels reach to zero at 60th days after exposure.
