AndrogensAndrogens are synthetic or natural compounds that influence the development and maintenance of the male reproductive system. These steroid hormones stimulate and control masculine characteristics and are the precursor of the female sex hormones, estrogens.
The most common androgen is testosterone. In women, androgens are produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands prior to menopause and after menopause their production is lowered.
Androgens are responsible for stimulating skeletal growth, increasing nitrogen and water retention and increasing libido and virility.
