Steroids include estrogen, cortisol, progesterone, and testosterone. Estrogen and progesterone are made primarily in the ovary and in the placenta during pregnancy, and testosterone in the testes.

They have varying degree of actions in our body. eg: Natural-Androgen, Oestrogen, progestone, Mineralocorticoids, .....etc Synthetic- hydrocortisone, Prednisolone, Nandralone etc..... synthetic steroids are used by certain athletes/body builders for muscle mass building/improving performance.
