Mesterolone is a derivative of the hormone Testosterone. Mesterolone is given when natural Testosterone levels are too low. This occurs following castration, or may be due to decreased functioning of the testicles (hypogonadism or eunuchoidism). This can be caused by testicular disease or a deficiency in gonadotrophin production by the pituitary gland. Mesterolone therefore allows the return of normal sexual functioning, and is useful in the treatment of infertility caused by low Testosterone levels.
