Hi Cheryl Those are all products marketed for use by men.

Testoderm and Androderm are testosterone patches, and the dosages are way too high for women to use. There is a testosterone patch being tested for use in women but it is not available yet.

Testim and Androgel are both 1% testosterone gels in an alcohol base. They are not approved for use in women but some women here have tried them. They are equivalent to our compounded 1% natural testosterone gels and creams as far as strength goes, but the alcohol base makes them unsuitable for use on the vulva (they would burn ). The numbers of grams on those products represent how much a man would use per application (they come in single application packets or tubes); for a woman, those amounts are way too much. We only need a very small blob of gel per day at most.

I hope this helps!
