Vaginal testosterone - I love it! Vaginal testosterone - I love it!

Vaginal testosterone - I love it!

Friday I picked up my prescription for my compounded testosterone/estriol cream. I love it!

I use a gram vaginally (sorry, I don't know the concentration offhand) and apply (insert) it twice a week before bed. My specialist suggested Friday and Tuesday. After one dose, my libido is back! Last night was the best sex I have had with DH in a long time.

I was worried about transdermal and oral testosterone providing too much systemic testosterone, so I was glad when the specialist prescribed this method. I feel great!

This is very interesting to me. Can you give me more information about using testosterone vaginally? Is it the same deal as vaginal estrogen - a very low dose applied locally benefits the desired region directly? What about systemic absorption? I gather that many women put their testosterone cream on their labia, etc. but never internally. Info - anyone??

Tell me more about this stuff too. Is it like female viagra? Or does it just help with lubrication?

You've peaked my interest. I could sure use something to help in that department.

Hi Knitty,

It's good to hear you are doing so well on this method.

However, I'm very curious if this mode of action causes bloating (read: weight gain) too?

Could you please also state the name of this medicine? I'd like to show it to my gynaecologist as an alternative.

Please keep us posted on your progress!

Like knittymcknitter, I used a compounded vaginal estriol which also contained a small amount of testosterone. I don't remember the strength of either as it's been years since I used it. It doesn't have a brand name because it's a compounded hormone available only by prescription which has to be filled at a compounding pharmacy.

I never had any systemic reaction to it. I had no bloating or weight gain. For me it did what it was prescribed to do--treat my vaginal atrophy/dryness. I also was prescribed 1% compounded testosterone which was used externally and it did what it was supposed to do--restore my libido.

Viagra treats a form of sexual dysfunction (arousal disorder) so it doesn't act the same as testosterone which is to help with libido/sex drive.

(((knittymcknitter))), I'm happy to hear this is working so well for you! Success stories are always good to read in the Hormone Jungle.

I can't use my compounded testosterone cream in the vaginal area because it burns. I would hate to think what it would do if it were internal. When I get a refill, I'm going to tell the pharmacist and see if I can get a different base or something.

Knittymcknitter -

Isn't that stuff great ? Dr. told me it was "AMAZING", and I didn't believe her till a week or so later =) You are on the same dosage as I am. Glad you are having good results, too!

Can you get this cream if you keep your ovaries and cervix, Knitty?
