This book addresses the emotive topics of reproductive aging, menopause and the use of androgen supplements to mitigate their effects. The subject of androgen treatment in reproductive aged women and men is attracting increasing interest from specialists in reproduction medicine, endocrinology and other primary care providers, as well as from patients and the media. To date, no book as yet has been devoted to androgen therapy covering its use in both men and women. The book has an all-star cast of authors and is edited by two leading authorities in reproductive medicine and infertility. The contents cover androgen production in the healthy male and female; the decline of androgen production during aging, with the associated effects on body composition and libido; and the benefits and potential side-effects of androgen replacement therapy.
