Testosterone At Puberty

The gradual increasing level of androgen at the end of childhood gives rise to two different divisions in terms of their span of influences in metabolism or physiological effects. They are Pre-peripubertal stage and Pubertal stage.

The former (Pre-peirpubertal stage) demonstrates gradual increasing of androgen causing growth of the signs and effects in both sexes like body odour that can be smelt during adulthood, appearance of pubic hair, increased greasy skin and hair casuing skin disorders, growth of underarm hair (axillary hair), ossification of bones, or appearance of moustache or sideburns.

The latter (Pubertal stage) shows more amount of signs and effects in both sexes when androgen is higher. Ironically, females are diagnosed secreting androgen for a prolonged period of heightened levels of free Testosterone in blood more than male lots who develop increasing androgen at a comparatively later stage. However, the signs and effects due to the androgen or developing levels of free Testosterone in blood can be seen in the areas of the growth of Leg hair, the growth of Chest hair, the growth of Underarm hair, decreasing of Subcutaneous facial fat, deepening of Voice, the enlargement of Sebaceous glands or causes of Pimples, enlargement of Adam’s apple, growth of male Fertility, enlargement of phallic or Clitoromegaly, growth of libido and frequency of penile-erection or Clitoral engorgement, Androgenetic alopecia or loss of scalp hair, increased muscle mass and bone density, growth of pubic hair around thighs, growth of jaw, chin, nose, brow and reshape of facial bone contours, broadening of shoulders and expansion of rib-cage along with culmination of bone maturation and completion of growth, those are caused by the Estradiol Metabolites and more palpable in men than in womenfolk.
