Abstract

Practitioners of male reproductive and sexual medicine must have an intimate understanding of the physiology of male reproductive endocrinology, as such a knowledge is the cornerstone on which hormonal treatments are based. In this review, we highlight what is known about male reproductive endocrine physiology and the various control mechanisms for the system. We also discuss the limitations of our current understanding of the reproductive physiology. We hope that this review is helpful for male reproductive medicine practitioners in understanding the principles on which hormonal treatments are based.
