World Menopause Day 2019 What’s Hot“Testosterone can help alleviate some health-related issues of menopause. Testosterone is a hormone common to both women and men, although men’s bodies produce much greater amounts. In women, testosterone is an essential hormone. Loss of sexual desire and satisfaction are common symptoms amongst postmenopausal women and testosterone, in a dose appropriate for women, can be very effective in improving sexual desire and satisfaction”.

“Summary and Key Messages The international panel concluded the only evidence-based indication for testosterone therapy for women is for the treatment of HSDD, with available data supporting a moderate therapeutic effect, in postmenopausal women. There are insufficient data to support the use of testosterone for the treatment of any other symptom or clinical condition, or for disease prevention”.
