What is testosterone?
T he hormone testosterone is the sex hormone (androgen) in males and the female hormone estrogen in females. T is the chemical equivalent of testosterone in the male and estrogen in the female. T is created in the testicles, where it is released into the bloodstream. In males, it stimulates the male testes. In females, it stimulates the female ovaries. T has the same effects in males as in females, and can affect other organs and tissues as well. T is also found in body fluids and tissues. T is an essential androgen.
How does testosterone affect men? Testosterone has a number of effects on a man. It increases the levels of sex hormones in a man's bloodstream. These hormones promote the development of male sex characteristics, including the presence of facial hair, facial muscle, pubic hair, and bone. T has also been found to increase the growth of bone and other body tissues such as the prostate, lungs, and spleen. The body also produces more testosterone in response to the increase in sex hormones in men. Testosterone also decreases the levels of inhibin B in the body. When inhibin B levels are high, it causes prostate and other symptoms of high blood pressure, such as an enlarged prostate or increased blood pressure.
