Androstenedione is a steroid hormone, described as a ‘pro-hormone’, produced mainly in the testes in men and in the ovaries in women, which is used to increase the production of hormones testosterone and estrogen. Androstenedione is taken orally specifically to increase the testosterone level. By boosting testosterone levels, androstenedione is believed to improve the athletic performance, enhance recovery and growth from exercise, increase energy, keep red blood cells healthy, and increase the sexual desire and performance.
Androstenedione is taken orally in a contraceptive pills or capsules and is available in a spray form that is administered under the tongue for instant results. Common side effects of androstenedione in men include low sperm production, painful and prolonged erections, breast development, heart diseases, behavioral changes, and others. In women, side effects such as abnormal menstrual periods and depression are observed. Androstenedione can increase chances of breast, prostate, or pancreas cancer and it is poisonous to liver. The control of androstenedione is very complex due to its secretion from number of other glands and its rapid conversion to other hormones. The usual dosage of androstenedione is 50-100 milligrams in pill form twice daily.
