From the expert

Testosterone is a hormone that causes male characteristics. For men, it regulates sex drive and controls bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass, strength and the production of red blood cells and sperm. Heavy alcohol consumption, liver disease and steroid use can all negatively affect testosterone levels. In men, testosterone levels fall naturally after the age of 30, and for many, this decline is completely normal and causes no negative symptoms. For others, it can affect mood, motivation and libido as well as leading to a decrease in muscle mass. This age-related decline in testosterone is often referred to as the manopause or andropause. However, young men can also experience low testosterone.

If a man’s testosterone levels drop below the normal range it can impact his fertility, causing decreased sperm production, reduced sex drive and erectile dysfunction.

Checking your testosterone level is easy with a simple finger-prick blood test you can do at home.
