We spend a lot of time discussing the symptoms of low testosterone in men, however, women are just as dramatically affected by the changes in hormone levels over time. That’s not news to anyone, but usually we speak of estrogen and progesterone when discussing hormonal changes in women. It is a very delicate balance of hormones which must be maintained, and testosterone plays a key role for women by supporting their metabolism and energy levels, sex drive, mental acuity and overall feelings of well-being. Following the same procedure for men with getting a blood test, having a physical exam and completing a medical history form, our Low T doctors will prescribe a 10% testosterone cream for women who are evaluated and determined to have low testosterone levels.
