Sex Hormone Disorders

Sex hormone disorders occur when there is either an overproduction or underproduction of the hormones responsible for sexual characteristics and development. In females, the main female hormone is estrogen which is primarily produced by the ovaries. Women also produce androgens. Testosterone and DHEAS are two of the androgens women produce. When these hormones are not in balance women may experience symptoms including menstrual cycle irregularities, hirsutism, acne and alopecia. In males, the main male hormone is testosterone. When males do not produce enough testosterone they may experience a decline in libido, erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle and loss of body hair.

Sex hormone disorders are resulted either due to excess production or due to the underproduction of sexual hormones which results in the improper development of sexual characteristics in a person. In females this may occur due to the decreased production of oestrogen and in males this may result due to the decreased production of testosterone. Which results in PCOS,  Hirsutism, androgen excess, menopause in females and hypogonadism, erectile dysfuntion, gynecomastia in males. Women are found more than males with sex hormone disorders. These are hereditary and can be inherited from one generation to other generation.
