Testosterone at the menopause
Most people think of testosterone as a ‘male hormone’. But women make testosterone naturally too and can become low in testosterone, especially around the menopause.
In the Autumn 2021 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, Dr Sarah Gray, GP specialist, discusses testosterone in menopausal women, whether testosterone products can help at this time of life, and the three available options of testosterone for prescribing.
“Testosterone deficiency can affect women’s sex lives but this needs to be diagnosed by a specialist doctor,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “No testosterone products are currently licensed for women in the UK so all prescribing is outside of a licence.”
The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women, men and healthcare professionals. The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter contains articles written by top medical experts, such as gynaecologists, GPs, consultants, specialist menopause nurses, complementary practitioners, pharmacists, dietitians etc.
Other articles in the Autumn 2021 issue of The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter include emotional symptoms at the menopause, physical activity at the menopause, and fibroids and endometriosis, as well as news, Ask the Experts Q&As and information about Norma Goldman’s menopause presentations.
