Hormones | Testosterone Matters

From the Menopause and Hormones Articles List

Woman speaking to her doctor about possibly taking testosterone along with their estrogen replacement therapyI've heard of women taking testosterone along with their estrogen replacement therapy. How does it help and what could a woman expect from adding testosterone to her hormone therapy?


Many women believe that testosterone helps them a great deal. It is known to add energy and clear brain fog.

Often, especially after the removal of the ovaries, the lack of testosterone can make a woman feel like a tired dishrag. Adding a small, woman-sized dosage of testosterone has been reported to provide the following:
  • More energy.
  • A feeling of involvement, rather than apathy, or numbness, along with a return to more emotion in my life.
  • Relief from some feelings of anxiety.
  • An improved sex life from increased sexual thoughts and body response.

Finding testosterone products can be a challenge. Although several products are in various stages of clinical trials, there are few testosterone products currently available for women. Off-label (men's products in a lower dose) and compounded testosterone creams/gels are some choices.

Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing any symptoms you think would be helped by supplementing with testosterone.
