Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is a reproductive hormone that exists in both men and women, but its level is quite high in men. Dihydrotestosterone is a testosterone-derived hormone, which functions from fetus to adulthood. The function of DHT is to further stimulate the formation of the penis and prostate in the fetus and stimulate the development of the secondary reproductive system in men, namely the growth of hair in the armpits, genital area, chest and other body parts, stimulating the formation of muscle mass in men and the form of sound in men. In hair loss, it can occur due to the influence of high DHT levels and can also be caused by other factors such as genetics, environmental influences, food or nutrients obtained, exposure to chemicals, etc.
Although DHT functions in the reproductive system, problems related to infertility or not a man can be known from the quality and quantity of sperm he has. Sperm is more influenced by the hormone testosterone directly. Low testosterone levels will certainly have an impact on male sperm production.
Until now, the exact cause of hair loss is not known with certainty, although research shows there is an involvement between the increase in the hormone dihydrotestosterone and the incidence of hair loss in men. But this will not necessarily affect the quality of male fertility. Therefore, ideally sperm analysis checks are performed to determine whether there are abnormalities in your sperm in terms of both quality and quantity.
Discuss further with your specialist andrologist to get more complete and relevant information regarding this matter.
