Male Reproductive Endocrinology

The endocrine system plays an important role in human reproduction and sexuality. In men, the testes (testicles) produce testosterone. Throughout life, testosterone helps to maintain muscle and bone mass, sperm production, and sex drive. The testes synthesize two important products: testosterone and sperm. The synthesis of both products is monitored by endocrine hormones produced in the hypothalamus and pituitary, as well as locally within the testis. Testosterone is essential for sperm production, however both testosterone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) are needed for optimal testicular development and maximal sperm production.
