The role(s) of estrogens (E) and progesterone (P) in male reproductive physiology remain unclear. Estrogens are used in the treatment of prostatic cancer. Progestins have been used to control excessive sexual behavior in men, and proposed as a male contraceptive. Previous immunohistochemical studies have shown that E receptors (ER) are present in the… CONTINUE READING
