Male Hormones? ........................

Testosterone testing is used to diagnose several conditions In Men, Women and Boys.

For Men:-

Decreased Sex Drive

Erectile Dysfunction


For men testosterone levels vary, and it is normal for a man’s testosterone levels to fall, as you guys get older.

A decreased testosterone level also can indicate impaired testosterone production; this caused by acquired damage to the testes, alcoholism, physical injury or even having or had Mumps. Using any Anabolic Steroids also greatly decreases a man’s testosterone levels.

Age – related problems include decreased testosterone production;

Declining sperm mobility or production


Erectile or ejaculation problems

Excessive amount of alcohol use

LH – luteinising Hormone & FSH – Follicle-Stimulating Hormone

In men LH controls the production of Testosterone from your testes; FSH controls the production of your Sperm. High LH and FSH levels in men are due to primary testicular failure.

Did you know?? Men also produce FSH and LH in your bodies; it’s not just a female hormone, these hormones levels are very important for male reproduction too!

In men FSH stimulates your testes to produce sperm, just as a women’s FSH stimulates there ovaries to produce eggs! LH can be measured in men to investigate the cause of low testosterone.

SHBG – Sex Hormone Binding Globulin

SHBG in men is measured to find the status of your testosterone in your blood, in men it used to look for testosterone deficiency.

SHBG and your testosterone levels in men may be used to help discover the cause of Infertility.
