So when we weigh the risk-benefit profile of testosterone therapy, particularly in a young guy, number one, it will give him energy. It will give him improved sexual drive and probably improve sexual performance, maybe muscle mass, these other things that that bodybuilders are after. On the other hand, once a man is on testosterone, he almost always loses his ability to produce sperm. Men who have been supplementing, especially recreationally supplementing with testosterone, notice that their testicles become small little objects that internally no longer have the mechanism of sperm production. And too many men start testosterone without this information and end up in a position where they're no longer able to achieve fertility. Even if they stop the testosterone supplementation they've been on.
