Testosterone and Women's Health

While testosterone is generally regarded as “the male hormone” the fact is that it’s also essential for women too, though typically at levels ten times less than that of adult males. It is important for mood and assertiveness, maintenance of proper bone density, enhancement of sex drive, and maintenance of the female genital system.

Testosterone decrease commences earlier and at a greater rate in women than in men, and in addition testosterone is depleted by intense physical activity as well as by the consumption of carbohydrates and fiber. Many women who are frequently tired, feel a lack of enthusiasm for life, and have a very low libido can be helped dramatically by treatment with testosterone cream.

    Typical signs of low testosterone in women include:
  • Low sex drive
  • Little orgasmic response
  • Pale skin
  • Weak muscles
  • Anxiety
  • Lack of assertiveness
  • Occasional outbursts of anger followed by crying
  • Painful menstrual cramps
