Testosterone is a sex steroid hormone from the androgen group that is produced by Leydig cells in the testes, the adrenal glands in both men and women, and in part also by the ovaries. In men, testosterone increases the production of secondary sexual characteristics, while in women it transforms into estradiol, the most important female sex hormone, which intervenes in reproductive and secondary sexual functions, and affects the functionality of different organs. The concentration of testosterone in the blood plasma of men is 10 times higher than that of women, while its daily production is 20 times higher in men.

Deeper tone of voice
Blocking of menstruation
Clitoral growth of a few centimeters.
