Testosterone is a hormone that acts as the primary sex hormone in men. It is produced by the male testicles and the female ovaries. Testosterone levels in men increase during and after puberty, dropping again after about age 40. Testosterone causes the deeper voice, bigger muscles, body hair, and other primarily male features.
