Testosterone for Women
Women and men share the exact same complement of hormones. The only difference is in the relative quantity of each hormone present. Adequate testosterone is just as important for women as it is for men.
Women's need for Testosterone
Testosterone is critical for a woman’s libido (a healthy sex drive). Testosterone also aids in muscle, bone and skin growth and maintenance. Testosterone supports weight loss and improves cholesterol levels. Testosterone promotes a woman’s self-confidence, positive mood, energy and ambition. Each of these functions is equally important to women and men. In fact, relationships often suffer when one partner loses interest in sex. Unbeknownst to women, sometimes a hormone imbalance is to blame for their low sex drive.
What Testosterone can do for you
Low testosterone levels are frequently seen in perimenopausal and menopausal women, and in women taking oral contraceptives (birth control pills), so most women are at risk.. Testosterone can be safely and easily replaced with simple creams and lozenges. This bioidentical testosterone is identical to the testosterone women make in their bodies. It is used to elevate the body’s testosterone to an optimal level where it gives a woman the most benefit. Many studies have demonstrated testosterone’s ability to restore sex drive in women, improving the quality of life for the woman and her partner. Sex is an important part of life, and central to a healthy relationship, so a low libido should never be ignored.
