I have seen a few studies finding a testosterone following 'creatine loading' phase.
However a cursory flick through the net showed a lot of ages suggesting no link between creatine and testosterone at all.
With this is mind can anyone evaluate the scientific consensus on this matter?

Which studies have you looked at?
From what I have gathered, creatine indirectly affects testosterone levels when it improves training volume. In other words, it's the increased training volume that increases testosterone. However, it is worthwhile to note that these are transient changes in testosterone levels and not long-term.
If you have a few interesting studies you are willing to share, I can take a look at when I have the time.أشهد أن لا إله إلاَّ الله و أشهد أن محمد رسول الله

I thought I relied but it mustnt have sent!
I was thinking along the same lines as factors such as increased workload might come into play
This is a placebo controlled double blind study in creatine and rugby players
Edit: I cant post links with my post count. Google 'creatine testosterone rugby'. Its the first link.
