Testosterone Deficiency

Testosterone is often described as a male sex hormone, however it is still a vital hormone for women. Testosterone serves a critical role in sexuality but also contributes to several body systems including muscle development, bone strength and cardiovascular health. As testosterone levels decrease during the aging process symptoms that we experience include:

  • Decreased libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Decreased Muscle Tone
  • Decreased Physical Ability
  • Weight Gain
  • Anxiety

These symptoms are typically experienced following menopause but can also affect women due to childbirth, endometriosis or other medications. Treatment with BHRT can help restore the body’s natural testosterone balance and improve the body’s ability to manage symptoms resulting from testosterone deficiency.
