What is Testosterone?
In males, the principal sex hormones produced by the body are androgens. There are several different types of androgens, but the primary one is testosterone. Testosterone (T) is responsible for normal growth and development of the male, including sex organs and for maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. The biologic effects of T include increased body musculature and bone density, growth and maturation of male sex organs, development of male facial and body hair, and vocal cord thickening. T also has effects on behavior, sex drive, and sexual function.
