    Stress ups cortisol/estrogen/prolactin, drops DHT, causes male infertility and prostate issues

    If you try to discuss infertility with a fertility/reproductive specialist or an endocrinologist, and mention that chronic stress may be a factor in infertility, you will probably get laughed out of the room. This is not just speculation. This exact same thing happened to several friends and...

    Low DHT can cause hypogonadism symptoms even in eugonadal men

    Seemingly contradictory title, but the study findings are pretty clear.

    Low energy production (glucose metabolism) may cause andropause

    As many of my readers know, aging men can also experience the equivalent of menopause and doctors informally call that state "andropause". Its official name is age-related hypogonadism and most of that hypogonadism is of the "secondary" type - i.e. the gonads appears to be in fine shape but for...

    PUFA Inhibit Progesterone Production And Thus Drive/cause Menopause

    Peat wrote in a few of his articles that menopause is largely driven by a deficiency of progesterone and mentioned several anecdotes of women in their 50s and 60s getting their periods back after supplementing with large doses progesterone.
