Low Female Testosterone Level

Low Female Testosterone Level: Overview

Testosterone was once considered an exclusively male hormone.  Men produce 10 to 15 times more than women, but research over the past decade has demonstrated that this hormone also plays a definite role in women's physical and psychological health, particularly their sex drive. Testosterone, which is significantly reduced following surgical or natural menopause, regulates a woman's libido.  Heightened libido is not the only benefit of testosterone; many women report that they have more energy and a greater sense of well-being.
