Hormones that influence in sperm production

male testosterone explained

Males begin to produce Sperm during Puberty. At this time, the male hormone (Androgen) testosterone produced by testes, stimulate the sperm production.

The pituitary gland releases FSH (follicle – stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone). These hormones stimulate the testes to make Testosterone , the male sex hormone.

The whole male body responds to testosterone. Hence sushruta has said

"yatha payasi sarpistu goodashchekshow raso yatha shareereshu tatha shukram nrinaam vidyaadhbishagwara" This means " the shukra ( the element which helps in reproduction) is present all over the body .

This can be explained with the following examples.

The ghee is present in milk in an invisible form. This is extracted from milk using many processes.

The sugar is present all over the sugarcane. It is extracted by subjecting the sugarcane to number of processes.

Same way shukra is present all over the body. But the cream of shukra (semen) comes out of the body only during the process of ejaculation. But this process of ejaculation needs a joyful union of mind and body.

Hence the ayurveda therapy to increase libido, semen and erection involves a step which rejuvenates and nourishes the whole body and mind.

The testosterone produces secondary sexual characteristics in male like deep voice, beard, body hair etc.

The FSH and testosterone stimulate the sperm production and development.
