Menopause and Testosterone Therapy

While it’s a common misconception that testosterone is exclusively a male hormone, women also produce testosterone from their ovaries and adrenal glands before entering menopause. Testosterone serves a pivotal role in various aspects of female health, including sexual function, muscle and bone strength, cardiovascular well-being, cognitive function, and energy levels. As women age, testosterone levels may gradually decrease, or a more abrupt decline can occur if a woman undergoes ovarian removal.

As part of your menopause consultation, testosterone can be discussed if you wish. There are a few different types of preparations that we might use, depending on your symptoms and preference.

A full assessment of your symptoms with your doctor is required prior to treatment, along with blood tests prior to starting testosterone treatment. Monitoring is then advised four-monthly.
