Progeston In Men

People don’t often talk about progesterone in men; it does serve an important purpose, but can be dangerous at high levels.

What is progesterone in men?
Progesterone is primarily a female sex hormone, but it is produced in small amounts within men. Many people don’t realize that progesterone is a precursor to numeroushormones, including testosterone, the primary male sex hormone. With decreased levels of progesterone, you may experience a lack of sex drive or infertility. This hormone also affects the metabolism, sleep patterns, and overall quality of life. Furthermore, when progesterone in men is suppressed, it can lead to estrogen dominance and the manifestation of certain unwanted symptoms.

Symptoms of low progesterone in men
The most obvious symptoms of low progesterone in men include the following:

  • Nervousness
  • Prostate enlargement
  • Fatigue
  • Low sex drive


When estrogen begins to dominate testosterone, it can also cause a higher risk of prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. If you experience any of these symptoms and lack a clear explanation, it may be time to see a doctor and have your hormone levels measured.

Benefits of progesterone for men

If you have proper levels of progesterone, it can help in the following:


The role this hormone takes in regulatingblood sugar is often overlooked, and many people ignore this symptom or are unaware of it until it is too late, and so diabetes develops. As with any hormone in the body, an imbalance can cause problems with the management of stress and depression, and can also negatively impact your sleep cycles.

Having the right amount of progesterone will also help to prevent prostate cancer, and improve mineral uptake from your diet, which can protect against osteoporosis. This hormone is even involved in energy metabolism and can ensure that our bodies efficiently use the nutrients that we consume.

Progesterone in men side effects
If your doctor recommends progesterone supplementation, it is important not to consume too much, or there can be side effects since progesterone naturally counters estrogen. In other words, more progesterone means more estrogen, which can lead to the following:


Before you add any hormonal supplement to your health routine, be sure that it is approved by your doctor and fully understood by you!

Infertility in Men

About 10 percent of couples of reproductive age in the United States will have difficulty conceiving. Approximately 30 percent of cases are due to problems in man, another 30 percent due to problems in women and the remainder is unexplained causes or multiple factors involving both partners. If you had sex regularly and without using any birth control for over a year (or six months if you're over 35) without conceiving, see your doctor. Almost 90 percent of couples with infertility problems can successfully undergo fertility treatment. Read about common causes of infertility, possible treatments and how many couples become pregnant after treatment. Note that the success rates vary, since a couple can have multiple problems. 1. Obstructions A small percentage of men has a blockage in their ejaculatory duct that prevents sperm from entering the ejaculation fluid. If the vas deferens or epididymis vessels become clogged or damaged, possibly your sperm can not reach the egg of your partner. The cause of the obstruction could be an infection, injury, birth defects or a vasectomy. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: surgery to repair an obstruction or reverse the vasectomy. Success rate: Depending on the problem and the type of surgery is performed about 50 to 90 percent of men have more sperm in their semen after surgery. About 20 to 65 percent of couples can conceive either through sexual intercourse or by in vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. 2. Varicocele The varicocele (dilated veins, similar to varicose veins in the scrotum) increases the temperature of the testicles, which can affect sperm production. Possible symptoms: None (but can detect the problem through a physical examination). Possible solutions: surgery to repair the varicocele. Success rate: Up to 43 percent of men impregnate their partner within one year after surgery and to 69 percent do so within two years. 3. Irregular sperm If you have few sperm or none, if motility (ability to move) is low or abnormally shaped, possibly they are unable to fertilize the eggs of your partner. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: fertility drugs; artificial insemination with donor sperm or with your own sperm if the quantity, shape and motility not have excessive anomaly; or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Success rate: When fertility drugs that aim to increase egg production are combined with artificial insemination, the success rate is between 8 and 17 percent per cycle. With ICSI, the success rate is about 30 percent per cycle. 4. Sperm allergy Your body may develop antibodies that kill your own sperm, most of the time after a vasectomy, testicular torsion (where the testicle twists inside the scrotum), infection or trauma. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: artificial insemination, assisted reproduction or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (drugs with corticosteroids such as prednisone are sometimes used to inhibit sperm antibodies but many doctors do not recommend them because of their side effects). Success rate: When fertility drugs that aim to increase egg production are combined with artificial insemination, the success rate is between 8 and 17 percent per cycle. With ICSI, the success rate is around 30 percent per cycle. 5. Unexplained fertility problems Your doctor may diagnose you a 'problem unexplained fertility' when you cannot clearly state the cause of your problem conceiving. Some experts believe that environmental toxins may be factors that contribute to the disorder but no confirmed no direct association between fertility and these possible problems. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: fertility drugs combined with artificial insemination or assisted reproductive techniques such as in-vitro fertilization. Success rate: When fertility drugs that aim to increase egg production are combined with artificial insemination, the success rate is between 8 and 17 percent per cycle. With in vitro fertilization, about 20 to 40 percent of pregnancies end in cycles. After three years of treatment, the probability that a couple will conceive decreases by about 20 to 25 percent each year. 6. Combination fertility problems It is said that a couple has fertility problems 'combined' when both the man and the woman have a fertility problem. Possible Symptoms: Symptoms vary, depending on causes Possible Solutions: Treatments vary, depending on causes Success Rate: The percentages vary, depending on causes The objectives of the diagnostic evaluation, either exhaustive or limited, are: Determine the medical and psychological causes. Assess the severity and degree of responsibility for it. Establishing a therapeutic strategy that supports the specific diagnosis and meets the expectations of the patient and his partner.

Hair Loss In Men And Women

Androgenetic alopecia can look different in men and women. Men often develop bald areas on the front and the top of the scalp. Women often have thinning hair on the top of the scalp, but usually do not lose all of the hair there (figure 1).

Another common cause of hair loss is called" alopecia areata" this type of hair loss happens when the body's infection-fighting system gets confused and starts to attack the parts of the skin where hair grows. People with alopecia areata have big, usually round spots of hair missing (picture 1).

There are many other reasons for hair loss. Some medical conditions and even some medicines can also cause hair loss.

Should I see a doctor or nurse? — see your doctor or nurse if you are very bothered by your hair loss, or if:

●you are not sure why you are losing your hair

●your hair loss occurs suddenly

●you also have itching or pain on your scalp

●you also don't feel well or feel very tired

Are there tests I should have? — most people with hair loss do not need tests. But your doctor or nurse might do tests to make sure your hair loss is not caused by a hormonal problem or another medical condition.

How is hair loss treated? — that depends on what type of hair loss you have.

If your hair loss is caused by a health problem, treating that problem can help. Other types of hair loss are treated with medicines that go on the scalp or that come in pills. Sometimes surgery is used to treat people with areas of hair that cannot grow back.

●androgenetic alopecia – these medicines can help hair regrow in people with androgenetic alopecia:

•minoxidil – this medicine is used in men and women. You can buy it without a prescription. It comes in a liquid or foam that you put on your head.


•finasteride – this medicine is meant for men. Doctors sometimes also give it to women who have been through menopause (meaning they have stopped having periods). It comes in a pill, and you need a prescription to buy it.

•spironolactone– this medicine can help hair regrow in some women who do not have good results with minoxidil. It is not safe to use during pregnancy. Women who can get pregnant are often given birth control pills to prevent pregnancy while they are taking spironolactone. The medicine comes in a pill, and you need a prescription to buy it.

●alopecia areata – these are some examples of medicines that can help regrow hair in people with alopecia areata:

•medicines called steroids – these can be given as shots, or applied directly to the skin (for example, as a liquid, gel, foam, lotion, or cream). The medicine slows or stops the immune response that causes alopecia areata. These are not the same as the steroids some athletes take illegally.

•a treatment called" topical immunotherapy" – a dermatologist usually gives this type of treatment. The doctor puts a special medicine that causes a mild allergic reaction on the spots of hair loss. You usually need many treatments to see if topical immunotherapy will work.

What if I am upset about my hair loss? — losing your hair can be very tough. If you feel sad or anxious because of your hair loss, speak to your doctor or nurse. He or she can help you get the support you need.

Premature Ejaculation in Men

Don't let ailments and problems affect your relationship, rather discuss about your concerns and get treated. Premature ejaculation is often defined as the ejaculation, which is uncontrolled and takes place either prior to or just after a sexual penetration. This happens much before a person desires for an ejaculation. It can also take place with minimum stimulation and is quite unsatisfactory for both the partners. This often leads to anxiety and other problems and can affect any man at any point of his life. This is known to be the most common form of male sexual dysfunction (lear more about the healthy sexual life)

Causes of premature ejaculation: The particular cause of premature ejaculation is believed to happen due to the physical factors of weakness in muscles and nerves of the penis due to past history of masturbation (learn more about masturbation), thinning and ejaculation of semen soon and some psychological factors such as depression, guilt, and anxiety. In some cases, it might be related to a medical cause such as the side effect of medications, injury and hormonal imbalance or problems.

Symptoms of premature ejaculation: One of the main and most concerned symptoms is that there is uncontrolled ejaculation prior to or shortly after the intercourse. This often takes place with a minimum sexual pleasure of both partners and before a person desires, resulting in dissatisfaction in sex.

Diagnoses of premature ejaculation: The doctor usually discusses medical history along with sexual history. A thorough physical examination might be done. Some lab tests might be ordered by the doctor to rule out the cause of premature ejaculation, as it can have any cause.

Treatment of premature ejaculation: Many times, premature ejaculation can get better over a period of time and treatment might not be needed. Often distraction methods or relaxation techniques are helpful in delaying an ejaculation. Abstinence or lowering the use of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs might help in controlling ejaculation in some men.

Doctor might recommend you and your partner some techniques, which help in delaying an ejaculation. Different positions can be tried or communicate with the partner to stop or slow down the stimulation. Also, one can start identifying the sensations which build up an ejaculation. If this does not work then behavioural therapy and counselling might help.

Sometimes antidepressants like anafranil (clomipramine) and priligy (dapoxetine) might be given to treat premature ejaculation. These drugs are used because one of the side effects of these is delayed ejaculation. Tramadol a medication for pain can also be used to delay ejaculation. Also, there are gels, creams, and sprays which can be used to reduce the sensations and in turn delay the ejaculation. These are lidocaine and lidocaine-prilocaine and are often applied on the penis before a sexual act. However, the flip side of these is that it might affect the sex partner as well by reducing their sensation as well.

However, if the premature ejaculation persists and hampers sexual satisfaction of partner, it should be consulted via sexologist for proper guidance and complete treatment.

Things That Make Men Infertile

The process of sperm production is a complex one as it involves not only the perfect functioning of the testicles or testes but also the pituitary glands and the hypothalamus which is located in the brain that triggers the sperm production by producing necessary hormones. Any damage or malfunctioning of any of these organs can significantly reduce the amount of sperm produced by a male body. In India, it is a taboo to talk about male infertility, but in reality, male infertility is on the rise in India due to low sperm production.

Causes of Low Sperm Production
Several causes can be cited for low sperm production. A few prevalent ones are indicated below:

  1. Varicocele which is a condition in which the veins through which the sperm is drained from the testicles get swollen, and thus the quantity and the quality of the sperm get affected.
  2. Any infection in the epididymis or the testicles can affect the production of the sperm. There can be some permanent damage to the testicles which causes the sperm production to decrease.
  3. Due to an Auto immune disease where anti bodies mistakenly destroy the sperms in your own body thereby reducing sperm quantity.
  4. Hormonal imbalance is a common factor in male as well though it is neglected in India. The pituitary gland might not produce the hormone in the required quantity which is needed for the right amount of sperm production.
  5. Medication that you are using can interfere with the production of the sperm in your body as certain chemicals can alter the hormonal balance in your body thus affecting the sperm quantity.
  6. Rarely, a defect in chromosomes can reduce male sperm production. Known as Klinefelter’s syndrome, the male body has 2 X chromosomes instead of 1 X and 1 Y chromosome which causes abnormality in reproductive men and the organs.

Common Symptoms-
The primary symptom of low sperm count is the inability to have an offspring, but there are many other symptoms as well. It has been observed that a male with low sperm count has a little or diminishing sex drive. They might not hold an erection for long or have erectile dysfunction. There can be swelling or pain in the testicles, and you may even have a lump which is a severe case. Due to hormonal disorder, there can be a decrease in the body or facial hairs.

If you have been observing a few of the symptoms mentioned above, it is better to see a doctor on the quick note. Doctors can ask for a semen test to understand the underlying problem. There are surgical as well as medical procedures to increase the sperm count and have a better sexual life.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How Men And Women Are Effected By Infertility?

Infertility is a medical condition in which the patient fails to conceive after one year of having unprotected sex. It is advisable that women who are above 35 years of age and often experience irregular menstrual cycles should consult a doctor on being unable to conceive within six months.

Is infertility a common issue?
Infertility has become a common problem for the new age women. Sedentary lifestyle and stress are believed to hamper the fertility of women nowadays. According to a report, about 6 percent women in US in the age group 15-44 years are infertile.

Infertility: It’s not just a woman’s problem
Infertility is not an issue with only women. Both, men and women can be infertile or are responsible for the condition. The process of reproduction requires mutual co-operation from both sexes. Therefore, they can together contribute towards infertility as well. It is wrong to blame the woman only. According to the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth data, it has been found that about 7.5 % men in the age group of 18-45 years (who have has sexual exposure) visited infertility clinics at least once in their lifetime. Of these men, about 18% were affected with male-related infertility issues.

Infertility in men: Men can suffer from infertility due to various factors. The infertility can be detected by analysis of the semen. A doctor can evaluate the concentration of the semen or determine the sperm count, the mobility of the sperm and its shape or morphology. These are important for fertility. Semen analysis can be hampered due to the following conditions:

1. Varioceles - The veins on the man’s testicles are unnaturally large and leads to overheating of the sperms
2. Diseases like diabetes, cystic fibrosis, trauma and infection.
3. Unhealthy lifestyle
4. Environmental toxins

Infertility in women: Women must have proper functioning of the reproductive organs to become fertile. The fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus must be physically and physiologically fit for getting pregnant. A woman may get infertile due to following reasons:
1. Irregular periods that suggests the woman is not ovulating properly.
2. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
3. Functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA) or excessive physical or emotional stress causing missed periods
4. Diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) or inability of the ovary to produce sufficient eggs
5. Premature ovarian insufficiency: The ovary stops functioning properly before 40 years of age
6. Blocked, swollen or open fallopian tubes
7. Menopause

How to Treat Chlamydia in Men and Women?

Chlamydia is a very common STI caused by bacteria. Those patients who are suffering from chlamydia usually don't see the side effects in the early stages, which makes it that much more difficult to diagnose it. Chlamydia can bring about a lot of severe problems in the later stages. These include not being able to get pregnant later or causing dangers in pregnancies. This disease is often easily spread since it shows no noticeable symptoms and can be passed on the partner very easily. 75% of the infection in women and 50% of the infections in men cannot be noticed and are without any symptoms.

Symptoms: Since the side-effects are not always visible, when they do happen, they are normally recognizable within one to three weeks of contacting and include the following:

In women these are:

  1. Vaginal discharge with strong odour
  2. Abnormal bleeding during periods
  3. Excruciating periods
  4. Stomach pain with fever
  5. Pain while engaging in sexual activities
  6. Burning around the vagina
  7. Pain during urination

In men:

  1. Cloudy discharge from the tip of the penis
  2. Excruciating pain while urinating
  3. Burning around the opening of the penis
  4. Swelling and pain in the testicles

Treatment: Chlamydia is easily treatable. Since it is bacterial in nature, it's treated with anti-infection agents. Following are some of the most common treatments for chlamydia in men as well as women:

1. Azithromycin is an anti-infection generally recommended in large dosage, yet the dosage may be spread out more than 5 days.

2. Doxycycline is an anti-microbial that must be taken twice every day for around one week. Your specialist may recommend different anti-infection agents.

Regardless of which antibiotic you are given, you should follow the dosage guidelines properly to ensure the infection is cured completely. This can take up to two weeks, even with the single-dosage medications.

Try not to engage in sexual relations while your treatment is going on. Unfortunately, you can get chlamydia again in case you're uncovered, regardless of the fact that you've had it and it was treated.

Women with extreme chlamydia infection may require hospitalisation, intravenous anti-microbial and painkillers. Your doctor might use a few tests to diagnose chlamydia. He or she will probably take samples from your urethra and cervix and then send it for further analysis. There are also other tests that include urine samples for presence of bacteria. Sometimes, even blood tests are taken depending upon your symptoms or in case the doctor is not able to diagnose it with previous methods and tests.

After taking the medication, individuals should get a follow-up on the treatment after three months to make certain that the disease is cured. This is highly important in case you are not sure whether your partner has been treated or not.

Measuring Testosterone Levels in Men

Dr. Madhusudan 94% (4357 ratings)
Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Delhi

The body and its functions depend to a great extent on the play of hormones, which can greatly affect how we function and the quality of life that we enjoy. Men and women have many different kinds of hormones. Testosterone is a male hormone that is found mainly in the testicles of males, and is responsible for the development of their sexual behaviour and other typical male characteristics. 

Why Measure Testosterone?

This hormone affects the physical, mental and emotional side of men to a great extent and an alteration can also cause health problems. For example, symptoms like sudden weight gain and mood swings are just a few that can point towards a low T score, which is a measure of testosterone. This is why it is important to measure the levels of this hormone. 

There are many ways to measure testosterone levels in men, which are as follows. 

  1. Sweat: One of the foremost ways to measure testosterone levels is to get acquainted with the sweat and its smell, which is basically a function of the apocrine glands. The more you sweat, the more testosterone you have in your body. 
  2. Testicles: The size of the testicles also determines how much testosterone your body is producing. The smaller the size, the lower the level; while larger and firmer testicles will mean that your body is producing high levels of testosterone.
  3. Erections: The erection that a male enjoys is driven basically by the level of testosterone being produced in the body. The size and frequency of the erection basically speaks volumes of the T score. Infrequent and small erections can point at low levels of testosterone, low levels of nitric oxide, as well as malfunctioning dopamine receptors. 
  4. Saliva and Blood Spot Test: This home-based test kit or a blood test at the doctor's clinic can measure the level of testosterone that is being produced in the body, with the help of a vial that can ask for either saliva or blood In this method, you need to remember that the T score depends on the time of the day and is usually highest in the morning. Also, a blood test conducted by a doctor will have more accurate results.
