Testosterone and Fatherhood – The Biology of Building a Family | Brain Blogger
"Investigators followed more than 600 men in the Philippines for 5 years. All of the men were single and had no offspring in the beginning of the study. Testosterone levels were evaluated at the beginning and end of the study. During the 5-year study period, approximately one-third of the men entered into committed relationships and fathered children. Men with the highest levels of testosterone were more likely to find a mate, and the new fathers had significantly lower testosterone that their single, non-father peers. Fathers who reported at least 3 hours of daily childcare had the lowest testosterone levels."
