Androgens are a group of hormones that develop typically male characteristics in the body, including muscle mass, hair growth and deep voice. They are found in both male and female bodies and fulfil important functions, including regulation of sex drive. Testosterone, the most common form of androgen, is responsible for the growth of male genitals and sperm production.
