Male testicles and male pelvic medicine (MTP) are getting a boost as male hormones have been found to improve female function, a study has found.
Key points:Female testicles are more likely to be involved in cancer, heart disease and obesity than male ones, study foundMale pelvic medicine is more likely than MTP to improve function of the female sexThe finding has implications for the development of treatments for men’s healthThe research, led by Australian University of Technology (AUAT) Associate Professor of Surgery Dr Helen Haines, was published in the journal Endocrinology.
It found that women with male testicles were more likely and more responsive to the effects of a hormone called testosterone compared to those without.
Dr Hain, from the University of New South Wales, said:”For women with men’s testicles, the increase in testosterone is likely to help to increase the number of cells and receptors that can recognize testosterone.”
It was the first study to examine whether MTP could improve female sexual function in women.
Dr Helen Hains from the Australian University’s Faculty of Surgery.
“The results were interesting because the women with MTP had higher scores on the Kinsey scale for sexual function and lower scores for sexual desire than the women without.”
The researchers found that when the MTP was used to improve sexual function, the women experienced increased sexual desire.
“If we wanted to improve male sexual function for men with testicles,” Dr Hain said, “then it makes sense that it would make sense to increase MTP in those men.”
It also makes sense to improve the function of female genital organs to help alleviate symptoms associated with endometriosis, or pelvic inflammatory disease.
Dr Sarah Pertwee from the American Association of Sexual Health and Counselors (AASHC) said the findings were encouraging.
“Our knowledge of how hormones affect the human body is still fairly limited,” she said.
“In this study, we are seeing that MTP can be used in conjunction with female hormones to improve reproductive function.”
Dr Hains said that while the results of the study do not prove that MTS can be combined with a male hormone, it would be a good first step.
“For example, if we want to use MTP with a prosthetic or cosmetic device to treat endometrial cancer, then we might be able to increase its effects by taking it in conjunction or in combination with male hormones,” she added.
“We don’t know yet what the long-term effects of this will be.”
Dr PertWEE said that there were still some questions surrounding the use of MTP for men and that further studies needed to be done to see if this could help improve male function.”MTP might be a great idea for those men who are concerned about their sex drive,” she noted.
“But we are still very much in the early stages of understanding the effects that MTF might have on male sexual functioning.”
I’m not aware of any studies that have looked at the effects MTF has on male function yet, but I hope that these results are helpful for men who may be concerned about the way they feel about their genitals.
