Does Testosterone Help Women Have a Higher Libido?
Testosterone treatments, including creams, gels and patches, are used to treat low sex drive in some post-menopausal women. Testosterone is used along with traditional estrogen-based hormone replacement after natural or surgical menopause. Pre-menopausal women with low libido may also respond to testosterone therapy. Hormone therapies, particularly testosterone, are not right for every woman or every situation and your health care provider can help you decide whether the benefits outweigh the risks for you.
