Testosterone is a hormone that is produced in both men and women. Although it is produced in both sexes it plays a more prominent role in men. Testosterone is what gives men their male characteristics and what fuels their sex drive. Testosterone is produced during puberty and it is responsible for the production of body hair, facial hair, muscle mass, a deeper voice, the size of genitals and the production of sperm. As an adult male, testosterone keeps muscles and bones strong and keeps the sex drive going.
As men age, their testosterone levels decrease. Low testosterone is called hypogonadism. Other possible causes for a decrease in testosterone include medical conditions, injury and use of steroids. However, there may also be no known reason for the drop in testosterone.
A symptom of low testosterone is a drop in sex drive. This is usually the first sign in men that something is wrong. Other symptoms of low testosterone are:
- Low sperm count
- Lack of sex drive
- Hair Loss
- Decrease in muscle tone
- Decrease in testes size
- Fatigue/ loss of energy
There are a few different types of medications that can be used to increase testosterone. If fertifility is a problem or a boy is experiencing delayed puberty, the doctor will usually give a testosterone injection. Adult males that produce little to no testosterone usually use a medicated gel or patch to increase testosterone levels.
