Q: What are hormones, and what do they do?

Q:  What are hormones? 

A:   Although there are a variety of hormones pumping through the veins of males and females at any given time, let’s keep it simple and focus on the major classifications of the hormones involved in sexual differentiation: Androgens and estrogens. Androgensis the generic term for the hormones that promote the development and functioning of the male reproductive system. Estrogensis the generic term for the hormones that stimulate functioning and maturation of the female reproductive system.
