Is increased body hair growth in men a sign or symptom of virility?

Is increased body hair growth in men a sign or symptom of virility?

Maybe but it depends: In answering your question, we have to agree (like former president clinton) to a definition of virility since that's more an adjective and less a medical term. Let's assume virility = masculinity, which one could say is distantly related to testosterone. Testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (dht) which increases body hair (but decreases scalp hair). But don't forget genetics! ...Read more

Kinda, sorta: Body hair doesn't necessarily reflect testosterone levels which vary quite a bit during the day.

I am 5'11 and weigh 140 lbs, would taking testosterone supplements stimulate body hair growth and growth of genital?

No. Enjoy who U R: You're a grown man and if you're having normal erections and ejaculations you're probably got maxed-out on your testosterone like the rest of us. Even gym-rats who take huge amounts of real testosterone don't get hairier or have their equipment grow. Smooth men get much less hair loss & most women seem to prefer it; a shorter penis is likely to get harder & stimulate a woman's best nerves easier. ...Read more

Is there anything I can take to increase your body hair growth?

Not really.: Body hair growth is largely determined by genetics. Applying rogaine (minoxidil) miight help a little. Taking testosterone would might work but you would have severe side effect, acne, oily skin, deep voice, loss of breast mass, enlarged clitoris, etc. Assuming your are a female as indicated in your profile these would be intolerable.
