for Women: The Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy for
Although sometimes it seems like men
and women are both completely different creatures, there is so much
that the two sexes have in common physiologically. Although we often
differentiate between men and women in regard to the hormones
Testosterone and Estrogen, both sexes actually utilize both hormones
in their own particular ways.
Males require a certain level of
Estrogen to be optimally healthy, and females need a certain level of
Testosterone in order to properly function as well. It truly is a
yin-and-yang sort of relationship. Although men produce much more
Testosterone than Estrogen, that little bit of Estrogen plays a huge
role in male health.
The same goes for women. A little
Testosterone goes a long way! Although women need much less
Testosterone than men, Female Testosterone Deficiency can drastically
alter feminine health and negatively impact life in numerous
Vast and Various Benefits of
Testosterone for Women
Testosterone provides the same forms
of benefit to both males and females. It stimulates metabolism and
generates energy. It helps the muscles stay strong and it keeps sex
desirable and exciting. Although Menopause is primarily associated
with drastic changes in regard to Estrogen Production, Menopause and
Peri-Menopause are also characterized by a slow and steady decline in
By sustaining healthy Testosterone
Levels both during and after Menopause, women can benefit in various
different ways. Optimized Testosterone sustains muscle strength and
tone, helping women stay stronger throughout their lives.
Testosterone also promotes the structural integrity of the bones,
helping stave off osteoporosis and prevent osteoarthritis.
In addition to this, Testosterone
plays a major role in mental health, encouraging both positive
self-perception and enhancing feelings of well-being and happiness.
Women with healthy Levels of Testosterone during and after Menopause
have been shown to experience fewer mood swings and emotional
instability. Perhaps most significant of all, Testosterone is
primarily responsible for female sexual desire.
It may seem counter-intuitive, but
Testosterone is actually what generates sexual desire in women,
rather than Estrogen. Testosterone not only governs sexual desire,
but it also controls sexual ability as well. Women with Testosterone
Deficiency are more likely to find sex at best lackluster, and at
worst, actually painful.
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a member of the
androgen family, and is one of the primary steroid hormones produced
by the human body. Testosterone is a derivative of cholesterol, as
are all hormones associated with sexual differentiation. Testosterone
is directly produced from a parent hormone known as DHEA. Although
Testosterone has been regarded as the quintessential hormone which
makes a boy become a man, Testosterone is hormonally active in the
bodies of both men and women.
In males, Testosterone is primarily
produced by the testes, but is also released to a lesser extent by
the adrenal glands. The testes have the capability to produce
Testosterone at a much faster rate than any other organ in the human
body. Females obviously lack testes, but the ovaries also have the
capability to produce their own Testosterone, albeit in far lower
amounts. The female adrenal glands also produce Testosterone via the
same mechanism as male adrenal glands.
Low Testosterone Often Caused by
Because the female ovaries are
primarily responsible for feminine Testosterone Production, women
that have had their ovaries shut down or surgically removed are
universally at significant risk of Testosterone Deficiency and the
medical issues related to such hormonal decline.
Women with Normal Testosterone
Production usually boast healthy sex drives, but women that suffer
from Low-T suffer in the bedroom, because their hormonal imbalance
severely disrupts sex drive, sometimes leaving women completely
disinterested in the act of sex.
Symptoms of Female
Low-T Disorder and the Goal of Female Testosterone Replacement
Testosterone plays numerous roles in
female health. Testosterone is absolutely essential in order to
maintain the physiological strength of the bones. It also greatly
stimulates the development of muscle tissue, controlling the maximum
level of both physical strength and muscle tone in women.
Testosterone, in addition to Human
Growth Hormone and other hormones, also stimulates proper metabolism,
helping prevent and postpone fatigue, allowing an individual to work
out harder or longer. Outside of the weight room, proper Testosterone
Levels help both women and men remain bustling with energy throughout
the day. In addition to dopamine and other hormones related to proper
mental health, Testosterone helps promote a positive outlook on life.
Although Testosterone is best known
for its association with muscle health and development, the hormone
is also the central hormone in regard to female libido and sex drive.
Testosterone is not only responsible for promoting a yearning for
sexual fulfillment, it also directly impacts a woman's pleasure in
regard to sexual activity.
Healthy Testosterone Levels actually
heighten the sensitivity of both the clitoris and the nipples. Women
with Low-Testosterone often have trouble achieving orgasm because
Declining Testosterone Levels actually have the capability to numb
the physiological response to sexual stimulation. Testosterone not
only puts a woman in the mood, it is actually the hormone which
allows for any form of sexual fulfillment.
Testosterone and Menopause
Although Menopause and Peri-Menopause
are primarily conceived in relationship to their significant impact
on Estrogen Production, the feminine mid-life change also leads to
significant changes in the production of other hormones such as
Testosterone as well. Menopause impacts Testosterone Production in a
much more gradual manner than it affects Estrogen secretion. Although
the change occurs more slowly in regard to Testosterone Release, it
is common for women to produce fifty percent less Testosterone after
Menopause than they did before Peri-Menopause began.
To put this in numerical terms, just
after puberty, most young women have a Testosterone Level that hovers
around seventy nanograms per deciliter. By the time that Menopause
occurs, Daily Testosterone Production drops to forty nanograms per
deciliter or less.
Although these changes occur in a
similar fashion in every woman, the way that the body responds to
that single chemical change can vary tremendously. Every woman's
internal physiology is unique, and many women begin to experience
significant declines in physical health or sexual desire as a result
of this hormonal change, although other women may not experience a
significant change in sexual desire at this point in their lives.
Women that go through through the
process of hysterectomy or oophorectomy are at an even greater risk
of experiencing issues as a result of Low Testosterone. Shutting down
the ovaries separates the body from its primary source of Endogenous
Testosterone, drastically reducing Testosterone Production to a rate
far below a woman that has experienced Menopause with her ovaries
intact and otherwise functional.
Stress can also impact the production
of Testosterone in women. Testosterone is a member of the steroid
family, and all of these hormones are related and interconnected
because they are made up of the same components and utilize the same
pool of resources. Under normal circumstances, there is a general
equilibrium set which encourages optimal health.
As we grow older, or if we allow our
health to deteriorate, our body's ability to maintain that
equilibrium declines. Although we often think of stress as a purely
emotional response, stress produces an intense physiological response
which can easily become pathological. Everyone experiences a certain
level of stress in their life, but if you allow stress to take
control of you, you can actually alter your internal hormonal
chemistry, negatively impacting your short term health and increasing
your risk of long-term mortality.
Testosterone, Stress, and Cortisol
Stress primarily affects health by
stimulating the production of a hormone known as Cortisol. Cortisol
is beneficial in regard to short term stress, because it adapts the
body to situations where an individual is at immediate risk. It also
drastically changes the human perception of pain, allowing us to
function even in times of great physical or emotional stress.
The problem with Cortisol, however,
is that the body primarily produces Cortisol by diverting DHEA from
Testosterone Production to Cortisol Production. Long-Term stress
debilitates the human body's ability to produce natural Cortisol and
can lead to severe Testosterone Deficiency in both men and women.
In addition to this, Cortisol also
directly negatively impacts physical and mental health over time when
released in excess. It encourages unhealthy cholesterol levels,
increases feelings of fatigue, and actually has negative effects upon
long term pain management if stress is not controlled over time.
Symptoms of High Cortisol and Low
Increased stress levels also have the
ability to contribute to the early onset of the many symptoms related
to Peri-Menopause as a woman approaches her early 40s. High levels of
Cortisol, combined with Low Levels of Testosterone, can directly lead
to the development of the following symptoms:
Reduced Energy and Increased
Increased Wrinkles and Decreased
Brittle and Thinning Hair
Increased Risk of Osteoporosis
Atrophy of Muscle Tone
Increased Development of Adipose
In addition to stress and age-related
Testosterone Decline, certain pharmaceutical drugs can also hinder
the body's ability to appropriately produce Testosterone. Any surgery
which directly impacts the ovaries can also lead to a decline in

BioIdentical Testosterone Hormone
Replacement Therapy is an easy and effective way to alleviate and
resolve issues related to Feminine Low-T. There are simple tests
which can uncover your ability to produce Endogenous Testosterone,
and a medical professional, like the physicians at the Conscious
Evolution Institute, can provide you with an accurate diagnosis of
your hormonal balance. If you are shown to have a legitimate
Testosterone Deficiency, our clinic can provide you with Testosterone
Replacement Treatments in order to resolve your hormonal imbalance.
Types of Testosterone
Our physicians and clinical
specialists will work with you to design a program which fits both
your needs and your budget in order to help you live a happier,
healthier life. There are a number of different means by which to
deliver Testosterone HRT. Originally, Testosterone could only be
delivered by injection, but today, there are a number of different
treatment options, including:
Testosterone Injections -
These injections are delivered directly into the muscle tissue. Some
treatment programs require weekly shots, while other Testosterone
blends may only be administered bi-weekly.
Testosterone Creams - Dermal
Testosterone Gels work by simply massaging Testosterone into the
skin, where the hormone dissolves quickly and is processed by the
body. Where Testosterone Injections are generally weekly or
bi-weekly, Testosterone Dermal Creams are applied more frequently.
Testosterone Sprays - One of
the newest forms of Testosterone Delivery is via spray. Testosterone
sprays work similar to Testosterone Creams, but Spray Testosterone is
administered to the body via an aerosol mixture which is more quickly
absorbed into the body. Although Testosterone Sprays work similarly
to creams, there is less mess, and the patient spends less time
administering the medication and waiting for it to dry.
Testosterone Sub-Dermal Implants -
Another relatively new form of Testosterone Hormone Treatment comes
in the form of implantable pellets which release Testosterone just
under the surface of the skin. These pellets do not affect the
appearance of the area in any way, and deliver Testosterone for the
longest period of time per treatment compared to any other therapy.
Your physician will make a small incision and place the beads just
under the skin. These beads provide a healthy dose of Testosterone
per day, and the pellets release the hormone slowly and steadily over
the course of weeks.
Testosterone Patches -
Testosterone Patches are placed
upon the body and held in place by an adhesive glue. These patches
deliver Testosterone directly to the body over time, allowing for a
slow and steady release of the hormone. These patches are generally
replaced daily, and provide Testosterone in a manner more steady than
perhaps any other method besides the Testosterone Pellets.

related to Testosterone Deficiency. We also provide counseling on how
to relieve stress in your life and adapt to everyday challenges which
contribute to that stress. There are numerous methods which work to

Does Testosterone Benefit the Body?
We mentioned earlier that
Testosterone is considered the primary male androgen produced by the
human body, although women need the Hormone just as badly in order to
preserve their natural physiological health throughout their lives.
Female Testosterone Levels peak around the age of twenty, and Natural
Female Testosterone Production declines slowly throughout the course
of the rest of their lives. This natural decline in Testosterone
Levels occurs more quickly than in males, and by the time a woman is
in her forties, Normal Testosterone Production can drop by as much as
In males, Testosterone is connected
with a number of physiological functions:
Testosterone encourages natural
development of boys into men as a result of puberty, leading to an
increase in muscle mass and body hair, as well as changes in vocal
tone and physical assertiveness and aggression.
Testosterone also produces and
maintains a normal and healthy sex drive. Without healthy
Testosterone Levels, Male sexual ability and desire potentially
decline rapidly, dependent upon the severity of the deficiency.
Severe Low-T can even result in reduced fertility or inability to
Low Testosterone can also reduce
competitiveness and assertiveness, leaving a man less in control of
his own life. Testosterone plays a major part in the natural male
desire to compete and succeed. Men in many professions rely on their
Testosterone in order to achieve their best whether or not they
actually realize it.
In correlation with this loss of
assertiveness, males can also experience an increase in feelings of
apprehension, self-doubt, and depression. Although male patients
often become less assertive and aggressive overall, this can lead to
increased feelings of irritation and annoyance which can cause a man
to become more socially or emotionally isolated from those around
Testosterone Deficiency in men
also leads to changes in the structural foundations of the body: the
muscles and bones. Testosterone is the primary hormone which causes
men to be stronger than women. As Testosterone Levels Decline, men
often find that their ability to build and maintain muscle mass is
reduced severely. In addition to this, the bones rely on
Testosterone in order to maintain their firmness and strength, and
Testosterone Deficiency can cause the bones to weaken and become
less resistant to stress and more prone to fractures and breaks with
In females, Testosterone plays a
number of significant roles, which in many cases are similar to the
roles played by Male Testosterone.
Testosterone Enables Female
Although Estrogen is the primary
hormone associated with female puberty and sexual development, sexual
ability, desire, and arousal are intricately linked to Testosterone
Levels. When Testosterone Levels become depleted, females suffer
intense and unwanted changes in their sexuality. The innate desire
for romantic activity falls, and can even leave certain women
Also, women who experience
Testosterone Deficiency have a seriously reduced ability to
experience pleasure in sexual activity, which can not only eliminate
the ability to climax, but can actually numb the body to the joy of
Finally, Low-T can also reduce the
feminine ability to even perform in the bedroom. Women have to
experience arousal to be ready for sex too, although many (or even
most) men don't fully realize it. Testosterone promotes the
physiological changes that take place in order to prepare the female
body for sexual activity. Testosterone production is what creates the
feminine lubrication which encourages successful penetration.
Testosterone also promotes the deepening of the vagina via the
retraction of the uterus, which allows and encourages deeper, more
satisfying sex for both partners. Without Testosterone, normal sex
can become almost impossible without proper lubrication and other
necessary physiological reactions to arousal.
Testosterone Reinforces the Bones
Like men, Testosterone is also
associated with bone health. Although for women, Estrogen is more
important for bone health during the aging process, Testosterone
Deficiency also inhibits the healthy maintenance of bone tissue as
well. Osteoporosis is one of the most dangerous physiological
disorders associated with the aging process, primarily as a result of
how insidious the progression of the disease happens to be.
Osteoporosis is incredibly difficult
to detect, but over time can have an incredibly detrimental and even
life-threatening effect on the physical integrity of the body.
Osteoporosis is the result of any health issue which leads to an
overall leeching of calcium and other minerals from the bones,
leaving them porous and incredibly prone to fractures and breaks.
Testosterone primarily encourages the
healthy formation of bone via organs known as osteoblasts, which
recycle aging bone material and renew it through a process known as
remodeling. Without proper Testosterone levels, structures known as
osteoclasts become dominant. These structures play an important role
in bone health because they pull aging calcium and other minerals
from the bones to be processed and recycled by osteoblasts.
Osteoporosis arises because Testosterone Deficiency causes the
osteoclasts to leech these minerals from the bones faster than they
can be recycled, which slowly, yet dangerously, weaken the bones in
Testosterone Prevents Age-Related
Testosterone Deficiency encourages
increased weight gain in women as a result of the increased
development of adipose fat. Testosterone plays an integral part in
healthy metabolism, along with Human Growth Hormone.
Testosterone encourages larger, more
energy demanding muscles, which speed up the breakdown of fat by
increasing overall metabolism. Testosterone also plays a role in
helping control the balance of the feminine hormones Progesterone and
Estrogen. When Estrogen begins to fluctuate both during and after
Menopause, Testosterone starts to play an even larger role in
hormonal balance, preventing the body from accumulating too much
Estrogen in relation to Progesterone.
Although levels of both Estrogen and
Progesterone decline as a result of Menopause, the decline in
Progesterone tends to be sharper, especially when Testosterone Levels
are particularly deficient. Estrogen dominance encourages the onset
of weight gain and obesity in both sexes.
Women have a naturally higher BMI
than their male counterparts because of a combination of naturally
higher Estrogen levels and lower Testosterone Levels, and the female
body is designed around that fact. Testosterone Deficiency unbalances
the equation and puts women at risk for rapid weight gain.
Healthy Testosterone Levels
Encourages Heart Health
Testosterone also protects the heart
in both men and women. Males naturally produce enough Testosterone
throughout the lifespan so that Testosterone Deficiency starts to
impact heart health much later than for females. Early hypotheses
regarding Testosterone assumed that Testosterone was the reason why
men tended to deal with cardiovascular issues at an earlier age, but
all evidence shows that Normal Testosterone Levels have a restorative
effect upon the health of the heart.
For women, age-related changes in
Testosterone Levels can have a much more dangerous effect on the
heart. Studies have shown that Testosterone Replacement Therapy has
the ability to increase the heart's capacity for exercise as well as
reduce the risk of heart failure in healthier patients. Testosterone
HRT may also partially relieve the negative effects of heart failure
among female patients that already deal with the disease. Low
Testosterone levels are also highly correlated with increased risk
for coronary artery disease and poor cholesterol levels in both
Testosterone HRT is About Hormone
Testosterone Hormone Replacement
Therapy has the ability to increase internal Testosterone Levels to a
healthy point of balance. For Men, Testosterone is effective on its
own as a means to restore waning Testosterone, but for women,
Testosterone alone is not approved by the Food and Drug
Administration for use in female patients. For women, Testosterone
must be used in combination with Estrogen in order to provide maximum
benefit without impacting the safety of the therapy.
Also, Testosterone should only be
used in doses which are adequate to restore naturally feminine levels
of Testosterone production. Testosterone Overdose in women can result
in the formation of male-like traits such as vastly increased muscle
mass, body hair, and a deepening of the voice.
Testosterone Abuse can also adversely
affect heart health, increasing the risk of heart disease and raising
cholesterol. Only optimal use of Testosterone has been shown to
increase the health of the heart in both sexes, and both Testosterone
Deficiency and Testosterone Abuse negatively impact the heart.
Testosterone Replacement Restores
Healthy Testosterone Levels
The goal of the Conscious Evolution
Institute in regard to Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone
Replacement Therapy is to restore physiologically youthful levels of
the two hormones in order to benefit patients that are suffering from
the symptoms of Age-Related Hormonal Decline.
There is growing evidence that
restoring natural feminine Levels of Testosterone can produce a
number of significant benefits to female patients while not causing
significant health risks as a result of the treatment.
If you are a woman and you are having
trouble lighting a fire in the bedroom, or feel that you may be
suffering from Age-Related Testosterone Deficiency, we invite you to

Which Women are Most
Likely to Experience Testosterone Deficiency?
Women That Have Had Their Ovaries
Women that have had their ovaries
surgically removed are likely to experience significant issues as a
result of Testosterone Deficiency. This medical procedure is known as
an oophorectomy. The removal of the ovaries leads directly to a sharp
and significant decline in the natural production of Testosterone,
because the ovaries are the primary glands which secrete the hormone.
Women with Nonfunctional Ovaries
Women that have had to undergo
chemotherapy sometimes have ovaries which have ceased to function
properly. These patients can experience severe Testosterone
Deficiency as soon as their ovaries become dysfunctional. If
chemotherapy has completely shut down the ovaries, women can utilize
Testosterone Hormone Treatments at any age. Testosterone Treatments
are generally not recommended for any patient who is in an immediate
position to conceive, but in the case of younger, yet infertile,
women, this is not an issue.
Women with Secondary Hypogonadism
Women with certain hypothalamic or
pituitary insufficiencies often suffer from Testosterone Deficiency.
Although in women, Testosterone is produced by the adrenal glands and
the ovaries, the production of Testosterone is mainly controlled by
hormonal messages sent from the pituitary and hypothalamus.
The hypothalamus uses a hormone known
as Gonadotrophin-Releasing Hormone in order to deliver the command to
the pituitary that increased levels of Testosterone are needed. The
pituitary then secretes a hormone known as luteinizing hormone in
response to the message from the hypothalamus.
Luteinizing hormone then travels
through the bloodstream to the ovaries and adrenal glands and
directly stimulates the production of Testosterone. In males,
luteinizing hormones travels to organs known as Leydig Cells within
the Testes, which also produce Testosterone. Any deficiency of
Luteinizing Hormone or Gonadotrophin-Releasing Hormone can directly
cause Testosterone Deficiency in female patients.
This form of Testosterone Deficiency
is known as Secondary Hypogonadism. Although there are multiple
treatment options available which may be able to resolve this
disorder more directly, Testosterone Replacement is a commonly used
treatment option in order to alleviate the symptoms of Low-T among
Menopausal Women, or Women
Women that are currently experiencing
Peri-Menopause or Menopause are at enhanced risk of Testosterone
Deficiency. Everyone knows about the drastic changes which occur in
Estrogen Levels as a result of Menopause, but did you know that
Menopause also affects the production of other hormones as well? The
majority of female patients that suffer from Low-Testosterone
experience the disorder for reasons related directly to the natural
process of aging.
Testosterone Levels begin to drop
more quickly during the years associated with Menopause, and this can
exacerbate issues related to Menopause. If Estrogen Treatments don't
seem to appropriately resolve the side-effects of Menopause or
Peri-Menopause, you may also be suffering as a result of dwindling
Testosterone Levels. Testosterone Deficiency generally becomes
symptomatic in the three years before Menopause occurs, as well as
the five years after Menopause.
Which Women Should
Not Consider Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Pregnant Women or Women that May
If you are pregnant or are
considering pregnancy, you should not use Testosterone Replacement
Therapy. Testosterone can negatively impact the female fetus, causing
it to develop masculine traits. Only use Testosterone before
Menopause if you are absolutely certain that pregnancy is not an
issue in your particular case. If you are sexually active, you should
only use Testosterone Treatments with highly effective birth control.
Those with Breast or Uterine
Women that currently have uterine or
breast cancer should not consider Testosterone Treatments, because
Testosterone has not been proven safe in these patients. There is
currently absolutely no evidence that Testosterone Therapy causes
these forms of cancer, however.
Although there is not enough evidence
to suggest that Testosterone is appropriate, new research suggests
that appropriate doses of Testosterone may have the ability to reduce
the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease. Testosterone is
hypothesized to protect against breast cancer by slowing down the
rate at which breast tissue cells replicate.
Women that Have Experienced These
Cancers in the Past
If you have a history of uterine
cancer or breast cancer, you should avoid Testosterone Injections,
Creams and Sprays. Although these forms of cancer may be in
remission, there is no definitive scientific evidence that
Testosterone is safe for patients that have struggled with these
cancers in the past.
Women with Cardiovascular Disease
Females that are suffering from heart
disease should avoid Testosterone Treatments. Although there is
evidence that Testosterone Replacement may actually benefit older
patients with heart disease, the treatment option still needs to
undergo further analysis and study before it can be recommended.
Check back on this one.
In a few years, there will likely be
sufficient evidence to support this treatment. Testosterone Overdose,
on the other hand, is dangerous for both male and female patients
because of the increased risk of heart disease.
Those that Struggle with Highly
Women with High Cholesterol should
not use Testosterone Creams, Patches, or Injections until they
control their cholesterol levels. Medical use of Testosterone in
women has been shown to cause a very slight increase in cholesterol.
One study suggests that the increase may be around six percent.
If you have your levels of
cholesterol controlled, this should not be an issue, and the medical
benefits of Testosterone should outweigh the negatives, but if you do
have high cholesterol, it may be in your best interests to either
control the medical issue or seek another form of therapy. It should
be noted that research regarding Women, Testosterone, and Cholesterol
is fairly preliminary and scientific theories are subject to change.
Those with Liver Problems Should
Avoid Testosterone Treatments
Patients with liver disease should
not use Testosterone. Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy does
not have a negative effect upon the liver in healthy patients, but
with patients that have livers which are not fully functional as a
result of liver disease or other medical issues involving the organ
may be at an increased risk of health complications because their
bodies are not up to the task of processing increased levels of
hormones such as Testosterone.
Note: Never Take
It should be noted that Testosterone
should never be orally ingested, because Oral Forms of Testosterone
have been linked to liver failure and other liver complications.
Testosterone is a natural hormone produced by the human body, and the
digestive system is not designed to process Testosterone pills.
Long term abuse of Oral Testosterone
can be very dangerous and we heartily recommend against the use of
this product. On top of that, Oral Testosterone is not effective
because the stomach breaks down Testosterone into component amino
acids, negating direct benefits associated with other forms of
Bio-Identical Hormone Treatments. In other words, Oral Testosterone
is a scam.
Testosterone HRT: The
Best Choice for Female Sexual Dysfunction
For many women that suffer from
Low-T, Testosterone Hormone Therapy has an immense effect upon the
sex drive and everything associated with it. Testosterone HRT has the
capability to make sex exciting again, and not just a chore. Do you
find yourself making excuses when your partner is in the mood for
love? Do you still love your partner, but feel like the spark has
evaporated for reasons that you cannot readily explain? This is very
likely the result of Testosterone Deficiency.
Before choosing Testosterone Creams,
Gels, or Patches in order to resolve sexual dysfunction, we recommend
that you be sure that your sexual dissatisfaction is not the result
of other issues which may be having a negative impact on your life or
your love life. Testosterone Replacement Treatment is not an antidote
to an unhealthy or incompatible relationship, it is a medical
treatment which resolves innate hormonal issues which leave you
unable to enjoy life in the bedroom.
Testosterone Does More Than Just
Light Up the Bedroom
Testosterone with Estrogen has been
proven to be able to alleviate mild depression, reduce feelings of
stress, and increase overall well-being, but before you choose
Testosterone HRT, come to your doctor with the confidence that your
romantic issues are not the
result of interpersonal problems that hinder your ability to enjoy
the company and advances of your partner.
If Low-T is the primary cause of your
inability to be passionate in the bedroom, you will likely experience
a number of positive benefits. Testosterone Replacement has been
scientifically proven to increase the frequency of sexual fantasy and
In addition to this, Healthy
Testosterone Levels prime the female body for sexual activity,
preparing her body for sex and increasing her sensitivity to foreplay
and penetration. Testosterone HRT has the capability to tremendously
enhance libido in both male and female patients with Low
Every Woman Responds to
Testosterone in a Unique Way
Scientific studies have shown a
strong correlation between Female Testosterone Levels and sexual
desire, but this link is not definitive and every woman is different.
Some women with relatively Low Testosterone can have burgeoning sex
drives while others with High Levels of Testosterone may have an
average or low libido.
The highest correlation between sex
drive and Testosterone seems to be intrapersonal and over time. The
further away that a woman is away from her peak Testosterone levels,
the more likely that she will experience bedroom deficiencies as a
result. Of course, this isn't always the case, and some women may
survive Testosterone Decline with a voracious appetite for sex, but
if your sex drive seems to be decreasing as you grow older, it is
extremely likely that Testosterone Deficiency is the root cause.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement
Therapy is about increasing Testosterone Levels conscientiously in
order to restore desire, rather than seeking to reach some golden
value which applies to all women.
Reevaluate your Testosterone
Status Every Six Months
For Women, Testosterone Hormone
Replacement Therapy is only initially recommended for a six month
period. At least every six months you should make a new appointment
with your doctor in order to ensure that the therapy is still needed
for a longer period of time.
Beyond six months, the risks of
Testosterone HRT can increase slightly in female patients, and it is
up to your physician to properly assess the risks and benefits of
continued therapy. For many patients, one six month period of
Testosterone Treatment may be effective, especially for patients
undergoing Peri-Menopause or Menopause that experience more severe
symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency as a result of the severity of
hormonal changes going on in their body so quickly.
Certain, Potentially At-Risk
Patients Should Be Cautious with Testosterone
To date, there is no clear and
definitive evidence as to exactly how Testosterone Replacement
negatively affects cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, or proper
blood clotting. As a result of this, patients that are at increased
risk for these issues are recommended to be incredibly cautious, as
well as open with their prescribing physician regarding their medical
There is theoretical evidence that
the risk of these medical issues may be increased because some
Testosterone present in the body is naturally converted to Estrogen.
Some Testosterone Replacement Therapy Regimens may include
antagonists which discourage the conversion of Testosterone into
One of the primary reasons that
Testosterone Treatments must be monitored every six months is because
it is important to ensure that Estrogen Levels stay healthy and
normalized in order to appropriately minimize the risk of negative
Symptoms of Female
Although Testosterone Hormone
Replacement Therapy can be an effective treatment for various
symptoms related to Low-T, there are certain symptoms that are
associated with the abuse and overuse of the drug. We must reiterate
that the goal of Testosterone Replacement Therapy is not to inundate
the body with Testosterone, but just to restore hormone levels to a
rate which is more physiologically appropriate for a healthy woman or
