What Is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone found in both men and women. The testicles primarily make testosterone in men. Women’s ovaries also make testosterone, though in much smaller amounts. Testosterone production starts to increase significantly during puberty and begins to dip after age 30.
Testosterone is most often associated with sex drive and plays a vital role in sperm production for men. But it also affects bone and muscle mass, the way fat is stored in the body and even red blood cell production.
While Testosterone production naturally tapers off as a man ages, other factors can cause hormone levels to drop. Injury to the testicles and cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation can adversely affect testosterone production. Chronic diseases and stress can also reduce Testosterone production.
