` The male reproductive system depends on hormones. Oormones are the
chemicals that regulate or stimulate body functions. The main hormones
in the proper functioning of the male reproductive system are the follicleë
stimulating hormone ( O , luteinizing hormone (O , and the
testosterone.
` The follicleëstimulating hormone ( O and the luteinizing hormone
(O are produced by the brain, specifically by its pituitary gland which
is located at the base of the brain. O is important for the production of
the sperm cells or the process called spermatogenesis. The O is
responsible of the stimulation of the production of the testosterone. This
is necessary to continue the process of spermatogenesis. Testosterone,
upon the other hand, is necessary in the development of male
characteristics. ome examples of male characteristics are muscle mass,
strength, fat distribution, bone mass, and sex drive.
