Bioidenticial Testosterone Replacement Therapy (for Women)
There is a misconception that testosterone is only a male hormone. This is untrue, testosterone is also produced in women by the ovaries. Although the level of testosterone in women is only 10% of the level in men, it rapidly declines during menopause along with estrogen and progesterone.
Board Certified Doctor & Bioidentical Testosterone Hormone Replacement Specialist Sue Decotiis, MD has been offering testosterone replacement therapy for women for over twenty-five years. Medical and scientific studies have proven that testosterone replacement for women can be an invaluable life changer.*
Most women can develop testosterone deficiency during the two to three years preceding menopause, but more commonly during the five years following.
Common symptoms of testosterone hormone deficiency in women include:
- loss of vital energy and feeling of well-being
- loss of your familiar level of sexual desire
- loss of sexual sensitivity in your nipples and genitals
- flatness of mood and some loss of mental sharpness
- dry skin and brittle scalp hair
- loss of muscle tone
- increased cellulite
- weight gain despite exercise
- for some women: thinning or loss of pubic hair
- decreased production of red blood cells by bone marrow and loss of calcium from bones – which can contribute to osteoporosis
- for some women: loss of muscle tone in the bladder and pelvis – resulting in symptoms of urinary incontinence
