Testosterone cream morning or night? Testosterone cream morning or night?

Testosterone cream morning or night?

Hello all,

My question is: Is there a "best" time to apply the testosterone cream? How long does it take to be absorbed?

I'm using 2% testosterone cream and apply 1 gram to the clitoris/vulva each morning after I shower. I try to make sure its rubbed in pretty well. But, after a couple of hours, when I have to go pee, it seems like I'm rinsing/wiping the cream away. So, would it be better to use it at night? Is it safe to use and then be intimate with my DH?

I'm feeling great using the cream, so far no bad side effects, only really good side effects

Hi Sharron I'd ask the pharmacist which would be best for you. How quickly the testosterone absorbs depends on the characteristics of the particular base that's used in your cream. Mine absorbs within about 1/2 hour. When I first started using it, I was told to use it at night, but now sometimes I put it on in the morning after my shower. I haven't noticed a difference.

Some women report a burst of energy after they apply testosterone cream. If that happens to you, then maybe morning would be better. If not, imho it's your choice.

Hi Sharron

I was told the creams can rub off on other people if we rub up against them after applying the cream.

I would wait at least 1/2 hour before being intimate with your DH, maybe even an hour....we don't want our DH's to get extra testosterone.

Hi surferbabe and troubled tabby,

Thanks for your kind replies. I will call the pharmacist, just to make sure. But, your suggestions make perfect sense as they always do. Thanks so much for the support.

Have a great day!
