Testosterone is included in the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines. It is produced by the gonads and adrenal glands of both sexes. Testosterone levels plummet in women approaching menopause or who have had their ovaries removed (hysterectomy, oophorectomy).

Symptoms of low Testosterone:

  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Incontinence
  • Bone loss
  • Muscle loss
  • Weight gain
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Poor mental focus and drive

Women who still have functional ovaries often keep making testosterone into their eighties. Testosterone is also converted to estrogen in fat tissues. Therefore, supplementing only physiologic doses (what the body would naturally make) is a sensible approach.
