Steroids Testosterone was often referred to as the "male hormone", It is responsible for the development of the male characteristics such as lowering of the voice, hair growth, and because the male body produces much more of it than the female. However, it is responsible for stimulating quite a few other processes. Steroids are a very large class of compounds, which occur in all animalsalso. The steroids used by athletes are mostly androgenic steroids: steroids, which act like testosterone. These steroids are used to treat inflammatory disorders such as cortico steroids, which do not have anabolic effects.
If a baby has two X chromosomes it will develop into a female and if the chromosomes are XY it will develop into a male. The fetus contains the fatty tissues that will develop a babies reproductive organs and genitalia. If the process is disrupted that the fetus identifies to be male or female, ambiguous genitalia can develop. In this case the baby is found to have ambiguous external genitalia. There’s no penis but a clitoris is enlarged (New, 2004).
Prolactin increased during pregnancy considerable and its role is to stimulate the growth and development of mammary tissue. During pregnancy however, progesterone and oestrogen are increased and so they block the action of prolactin. After delivery, their levels decrease rapidly and so the prolactin is no longer blocked. This is where the milk secretion begins. Each time the baby suckles the blood levels of prolactin increase and stimulate further milk production by the alveoli.
Sex Determining Region Y In mammals, the X and Y-chromosomes determine the sex of an organism. If a mammal is homologous XX than that mammal will be female and if the mammal is heterozygous XY that individual will be male, assuming no mutations. What is it about the Y chromosome that dictates the male sex? On the short arm of the Y-chromosome is a region called the sex-determining region Y or SRY that codes for transcription factor “sex-determining Y” protein in mammals. In 1991, the function of SRY was revealed to be the sex-determining gene in mice that was responsible for testes formation.
Early Child Development There are many key factors that play up to the role of early child development, starting from before the child is nonexistent, until the child is a full grown baby. Bodily Processes of Reproduction There are numerous hormones in the human body that play key factors in allowing a human being to reproduce successfully. Spermatogenesis Spermatogenesis is the 65 to 75 day process in which the human male anatomy produces sperm cells. In the male body, follicle-stimulating hormones, or FSH, and leutinizing hormones, or LH, are very important in the process of spermatogenesis. These hormones control sperm reproduction.
If the mother were to take male hormones or if they would have a tumor that produced testosterone, there would be a higher likelihood of their child being born XX Intersex. If the child is deficient in aromatase, this may also lead to it. Aromatase is the hormone that converts male hormones to female ones. During puberty, children raised as girls, would begin to acquire male characteristics (2). The most common cause leading to XX Intersex is congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH).
The various studies suggest that using more than one type of anabolic steroid at the same time ("stacking") causes a stronger inhibition of the gonadal functions than using one single anabolic steroid. After abstention from anabolic steroids these changes in fertility usually reverse within some months. However, several cases of have been reported in which the situation of hypogonadism lasted for more than 12 weeks. A well known side effect of AS in males is breast formation (gynecomastia). Gynecomastia is caused by increased levels of circulating estrogens, which are typical female sex hormones.
This state of discrepancy occurs when self conceptualization takes place within the child.Some experiments have suggested that boys tend to have more male sex hormones known as androgens than girls.However some girls are born with considerably higher level of androgens which is termed as androgenetal syndrome(AGS).Scientists have studied children with AGS to understand how their behaviour is affected due to the presence of higher level of adrogens in their body. On observing their actions , the scientists found that boys with extra adrogens behave in a normal way as the other boys do but girls with higher level of androgens tend to show some typical characteristics of male traits and behaviour. In general, variance in female gender has been managed effectively in western society.Their family members also to tend accept a female child who depicts certain male characteristics and they even feel proud that their girl is being bold and appears to be Tomboyish. However, male gender variance such as transgenders who can be easily recognised, has not been percieved favorably in
Other probable cause, which is very rare, is that the individual has an oversupply of a protein that increases the activity of a normal supply of growth hormone (Frey, 2009. p.424).

The goal of this treatment with medications may include shrinking the pituitary mass, restoring secretory patterns and serum levels to their normal state, and retaining normal pituitary secretion of other hormones to prevent recurrence of the condition (Hopper, 2012, p.425) Works Cited Hopper, Teressa.

The Female Reproductive System parts are gametes, which is a mature haploid male or female germ cell that is able to unite with another of the opposite sex in several reproductions to form a zygote. Egg is a person possessing a specified quantity. Ovum is a mature female reproductive cell especially of a human or other animal that van divide to give rise to an embryo usually only after fertilization by a male cell. Vaginal is a muscular tube leading from the external genitals to the cervix of the uterus in women and most female mammals. Labia is the inner and outer folds of the vulva, at either side of the vagina.
