Answer

Androgens

Androgens suppress pituitary release of gonadotropic hormones.

These agents are used to inhibit the effects of estrogen. [6, 30, 31, 32, 33, 45]

Testosterone (Androderm, AndroGel, Axiron, Testim)

Testosterone is the predominant male sex hormone used for replacement therapy in male hypogonadism.

Danazol

Danazol is a synthetic steroid analog with strong antigonadotropic activity (it inhibits LH and FSH) and weak androgenic action.
