Answer

Androgen replacement therapy is used to correct androgen deficiency, to provide appropriate virilization, and to improve psychosocial status. Regular testosterone injections can promote strength and facial hair growth; build a more muscular body type; increase sexual desire; enlarge the testes; improve mood, self-image, and behavior; and protect against precocious osteoporosis.
