Androgens are male hormones. Some androgens are naturally produced in the body and are necessary for the normal sexual development of males.
Androgens are used for several reasons, such as:
To replace the hormone when the body is unable to produce enough on its own.
To stimulate the beginning of puberty in certain boys who are late starting puberty naturally.
To treat certain types of breast cancer in females.
In addition, some of these medicines may be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Androgens are available only with your doctor’s prescription.
