What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is the male hormone produced naturally in both men and women. In men testosterone is produced by the testes, and in women the ovaries produce the hormone testosterone.

Men produce more testosterone than women.

Testosterone (also known as the male sex hormone) is the hormone that:

Testosterone levels also greatly effect:
