Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues like the testes and prostate. It also supports secondary characteristics like increased muscle mass and the growth of body hair.
Though it is considered a male sex hormone, women also produce small amounts of this hormone in their ovaries and adrenal glands. Together with estrogen, testosterone supports the growth and maintenance of female reproductive tissue.

What is TRT?
Low or declining testosterone is a normal part of aging in healthy adults, but many don’t want to live with the uncomfortable symptoms and side effects. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is form of medical treatment primarily used to treat symptoms of sexual dysfunction in men and women. Potential benefits include improved libido, increased bone mass and an increased sense of well-being. TRT can be administered as a pill, gel, patch or injection, or it can be implanted as pellets into the soft tissues.
