Sex hormones affect the growth and function of the reproductive organs and impact sexual behavior. Both males and females produce these hormones known as estrogens (female) and androgens (male). These hormones control the development of secondary sex characteristics, such as breasts in women and a deeper voice in men.
Sex hormone disorders include:
Hormonal imbalance linked to excess production of male sex hormones.
Condition in which too much hair grows on the face or body.
Genetic disorder in which the adrenal glands don't produce vital steroid hormones (corticosteroids).
Insufficient testosterone production.
