Women's Sex Drive Restored By Testosterone Therapy?
It's evident that Testosterone is a central aspect of masculine form and function, but most people aren't aware that Testosterone plays an influential role in women's health and wellness. Women produce significantly less Testosterone than men. In fact, they circulate about 5% of the Testosterone that a man secretes daily. Some research has been conducted regarding Testosterone Therapy for Women, but these studies have been small and do not prove the long-term effectiveness and safety of Feminine Testosterone HRT.
Though women produce much less Testosterone than men, they still experience Testosterone Decline, which can become problematic during and after menopause. In women, Testosterone is secreted by the Ovaries and Adrenal glands, and as female hormone production drops, so can Testosterone Levels. Because women produce so much less Testosterone, they can be susceptible to age-related Testosterone Decline.
What are the Benefits of Testosterone in Women?
Testosterone is a central aspect of sexual desire and function in both sexes. In men, Testosterone is responsible for facilitating desire and encouraging erection and pleasure. In women, Testosterone also promotes sex drive, while also helping with proper lubrication. Low-T in women not only leads to low sex drive, but it can also suppress orgasms and lead to feelings of pain and discomfort during sex.
While Testosterone is most well known for supporting normal sexual function, the cholesterol-based Hormone is responsible for promoting wellness in some other ways. For women, Testosterone facilitates strong hair, increases focus, bolsters mood, strengthens bones, enhances energy levels and supports healthy body composition.
While Feminine Hormone Replacement Therapy can relieve many symptoms associated with menopause, such as lack of focus, weight gain, hot flashes, and night sweats, it is secondary to Testosterone regarding libido.
Many Hormone Clinics Offer Testosterone for Women
While Testosterone has not been indicated for women by the Food and Drug Administration, there are many Hormone Clinics and Endocrinologists that offer Off-Label Prescription Testosterone for women dealing with low libido stemming from Menopause. It's not something every Hormone Doctor will do, but many will provide this service to patients, in spite of it not being sanctioned by the FDA.
It's important to note that women can experience side effects from too much Testosterone, such as acne, auxiliary hair growth, clitoris enlargement, and deepening voice. There is also the chance of increased risk of heart attack and stroke, as well as hair loss. If you do decide to choose Low-T Treatments for Women, it's essential to work with a highly experienced and thorough Hormone Therapy Provider to minimize the risk of accidental overdose, which is the cause of significant side effects under most circumstances.
While there isn't a significant amount of clinical data regarding Bio-Identical Testosterone for women, there is a lot of anecdotal data and a relatively large chorus of satisfied women.
