Testosterone Replacement Treatment For Women

Testosterone Replacement Treatment For Women

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment typically marketed to men. Women can significantly benefit from testosterone therapy as well. However, women also produce testosterone, although in smaller amounts than men. When these levels dip below normal for women, it can negatively impact their health.

Even though testosterone is an androgenic male hormone, women’s bodies also make and need testosterone. Like men, women’s testosterone levels diminish naturally with age, particularly after menopause. In some cases, low testosterone is a natural consequence of decreasing hormone levels. Ovarian dysfunction or failure, like chemotherapy or radiation, can cause low testosterone levels, thyroid disease, and certain types of cancer.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy For Women

What does testosterone replacement treatment involve? Depending on the patient’s preference, biology, and response to the hormones, they can either orally ingest testosterone via tablets and pills, take intramuscular injections, or use gels.

Topical creams and gels are one option if the patient has tough skin. They are the easiest to use. Those with sensitive skin should consider oral tablets instead. One drawback is that side effects may occur from overuse.

Oral tablets are one option if one wants to avoid needles or instead try a short-term treatment to correct a temporary deficiency. Many are designed without a release mechanism so that they will release testosterone immediately after digestion.

Injections require a weekly application. They are the most accurate in terms of delivering testosterone treatment.

Women suffering from painful menopause or fatigue can regain their energy and spirit to enjoy their prime years. They can get more sleep at night and tackle the day with vibrance and passion for ordinary routines and long-term goals.

Correcting this hormone deficiency can reduce hair loss from stress and aging. One can also brighten the skin by strengthening collagen, reducing the potential for wrinkles and sagging skin. As a result, a woman taking these treatments can gain more confidence and not need Botox to minimize aging.

Below are the most frequently common questions related to testosterone treatment options. Feel free to reach out if we haven’t answered or addressed your concerns.

Testing For Low Testosterone And What You Should Know
Before we break down the reasons behind getting complete blood work, let’s start with the three things that define aging and how they relate to the following information. The three things that define aging, in our humble opinion are memory, vision, and physical movement. Hormone replacement therapy or low testosterone treatment is hands down the best way to maintain the proper optimal function of these aging factors. This is the most essential tool you can use to age gracefully.

However, hormone replacement therapy should never be considered without a complete understanding of how all the body’s hormones interact with each other. If one hormone is altered or deficient in your body, it will affect the actions of all of the other hormones and it may cause a negative “cascade effect” if not prescribed properly. The hormonal response of an individual is as unique as their fingerprints, and how one responds to hormone therapy is related to the condition of one’s health, bio-individuality, genetic profile, stress level, nutritional supplementation, lifestyle, and what you eat.

Understanding How To Test For Low Testosterone
We hope that you could agree that one size does not fit all, and why it’s so crucial that we customize each treatment for each patient with a proper complete blood work analysis. So, before starting you on a hormonal replacement/optimization treatment or if you are already on therapy, and your doctor is not ordering all of the blood test panels we look for, we would ask you to consider his overall expertise in the field of regenerative and hormone replacement/optimization therapy.

Once you read what each hormone’s roles are in your body, you will understand why complete blood work like ours is absolutely invaluable to your well-being. Our blood work is by far the most comprehensive blood test you can order. We are sincerely watching out for our patient’s best interests at all times.

What Are Common Signs Of Low Testosterone In Women?
Signs include fatigue, significant hair loss, weight gain, concentration loss, and decreased libido. We recommend getting a test if a patient is over 35 and experiencing these symptoms.
Why Should I Get Tested For Low Testosterone?
You should get tested if finishing up ovarian cancer treatments or feeling extreme fatigue. If you’re missing periods, then testosterone levels can be an indicator of a polycystic ovarian syndrome. Low hormones can affect fertility if you wish to start a family and rapidly accelerate osteoporosis.
How Do You Test For Low Testosterone?
A doctor first needs to conduct a physical and assess symptoms. They then order a round of blood tests: total testosterone level, luteinizing hormone (LH), blood prolactin, and blood hemoglobin.
How Long Does Testosterone Therapy Take To Work For Females?
Wait for six weeks before monitoring mood levels. Depression and anxiety should improve for the patients. Stamina and energy will increase after three months, and after the third month, muscle mass should increase.
