Testosterone Overview

Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group and is found in mammals, reptiles,[1] birds,[2] and other vertebrates. In mammals, testosterone is secreted primarily in the testicles of males and the ovaries of females, although small amounts are also secreted by the adrenal glands. It is the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. In men, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate as well as promoting se...

andrex capsule function
i use this capsol for the low sprem motility . my question is that is it better for the mention problem ## Hello, Hashim! How are you? Andrex capsules contain Testosterone, which is the primary male hormone, it's not going to do anything to improve sperm motility and quality. As a matter of fact, taking it when you don't need could be dangerous. Has a doctor confirmed that you have a sperm motility problem? If so, what did they suggest you do to help? ## i have no stemna and complete failed in intercourse, wife never satisfy for discharge from last 23 years iam 53 years old.

gel treatment lowered testosterone levels
Started a gel treatment for low T levels. Checked levels 30 days later and levels decreased by 50% instead of increasing. What now? ## Hello, Mad Dog! What gel were you using? Some formulations work better for some people than others. There was a post on here recently about a man that went from the gel to the Testopel pellets, but found they didn't work as well as the gel, so they had to be removed and he had to start using the gel, again. Have you talked to your doctor about it? You may need to try the pellets to see if they work for you.

Est estrogenmtest and testosterone
Does estrogenmtest have testosterone ? ## Hi Shelly, To answer your question, yes, Methyltestosterone (found in estrogen mtest) is in fact a man-made form of testosterone. However, the combination of esterified estrogens + methyltestosterone can be used to treat a variety of symptoms associated with menopause (as a means of hormone replacement therapy). You can learn more about this medication on the page for Esterified Estrogens + Methyltestosterone Details I hope this info helps!

Testosterone shots
Hello doc, I am 28 years old. Male. My test results came back as follows: DHT – 468 pg/ml Testosterone – 523 ng/dl TSH – 1.530 A month later, I got these tests done: Testosterone – 683 ng/dl Estradiol – 33 pg/ml My issue is less facial hair. I have a good mustache and good hair growth on my chin and a thin line along my jawline. But I don’t have hair on my cheeks. The doctor I consulted suggested I go for testosterone injections for a few months or go for a DHT cream. Are my tests alright? Is my estradiol a little high? I am afraid I have started developing small breasts. Also, I feel I get irritated quite easily sometimes and am OK the next moment(Mood Swings). Can high estradiol be the reason for my beard not growing? Please advice. ## Hello, Based ...

Excessive body hair while getting testosterone shots
Does everyone who gets the testosterone shots grow more body hair? ## No, it doesn't necessarily happen to everyone, but it is a possible side effect of it, because Testosterone is what affects the growth of body hair, especially in men. Normally, you'd see a sudden surge in it, when you first start getting the shots, but it should eventually taper off and level out, just as it would if you were producing it normally. However, if you feel that it's excessive, then you should consult your doctor about it. Is there anything else I can help with?

andriol testocaps
ANDRIOL TOECAPS-Testosterone undecanoate ; what is the use of this medicine. Is there any side effect ## Testosterone is a hormone, more prevalent in men, it's what provides your libido, as well as your masculine characteristics. That's why men have a lot more of it than women. However, there are some cases where a man may stop producing enough of it on his own, due to age or some medical conditions. When that happens, medications such as this are used to supplement it back. Side effects may include dizziness, headache and moodiness. Is there anything else I can help with?

Testosterone pellet
I had testosterone pellets inserted in my hip last April, 2012. My tes shot up from 355 to 850 in a couple of weeks. Everything was OK, then about 10 weeks into the program I started having anxiety. I got to the point where it was panic. I have never felt panic to this degree. I went back to my doc and he checked my estrogen and found out it was 3 times higher than when I started the program. He gave me some anastrasole to block the production of estrogen. Once that door was open my anxiety would not go away. I started taking 30 mg of Cymbalta to control my anxiety. Now 4 months later things are starting to level off. Obviously I was disappointed and do not plan on getting the Testosterone Pellets anymore. It seems like I experienced all the negative side effects and none of the positiv...

Progynon Pellet Implant
I am looking for a physician that does the Progynon Pellet Implant (Hormones). ## Hello, Unfortunately I don't know of a physician that I can refer you to, but I will provide some information for anyone else who may be interested in the treatment. Based on my research, hormone replacement therapy using pellet implants is a bio-identical process to deliver hormones in both men and women. Hormone pellets are Implants, that when placed under the skin, are meant to systematically release small, safe doses of hormones. Specifically, pellets deliver safe levels of hormones for 3-4 months in women and 4-5 months in men. They don't have the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with other methods of hormone delivery. There are two different types of hormone implants; te...
