What Are the Effects of Low Testosterone in Women?

Low Testosterone in Women

Hormonal changes, hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, night sweats, and forgetfulness may all be signs of menopause, but what most women do not realize is that they could be linked to low testosterone levels.

Low T is not just a condition that plagues men – it affects women just as much although many do not have a clue that this hormone may be an even bigger problem than declining estrogen levels.

Low testosterone in women is often responsible for osteoporosis, lack of sex drive, insomnia, high cholesterol, decreased drive, social isolation, depression, and more – much more!

In fact, the effects of testosterone decline in females are often more acute than with males because the lower level of testosterone in a woman’s bloodstream makes her increasingly susceptible to even the slightest change.

The most common low testosterone in women symptoms include:

  • Fatigue – expect to feel drained, exhausted, and unable to accomplish all you need to do
  • Tired – this is different from fatigue and is caused by lack of sleep (a significant amount of both testosterone and growth hormone production occurs during sleep)
  • Weight gain – testosterone promotes proper metabolic functions leading to weight gain when T levels decline
  • Mood changes – depression, mood swings, negative outlook for the future, anxiety, increased stress, and social isolation often accompany declining testosterone levels
  • Loss of sexual interest – lack of sex drive, trouble feeling aroused, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and reduced pleasure are signs of Low T
  • Mental decline – forgetfulness, trouble concentrating, difficulty learning new things, and an impaired ability to perform mental tasks are present with testosterone deficiency
  • Hair loss – thinning and balding are signs of Low T
  • Loss of muscle – as weight goes up, lean muscle mass and strength decline
  • Decreased bone density – testosterone is crucial for preserving bones and preventing osteoporosis

Many women with Low T also suffer from high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, obesity, atherosclerosis, and high blood pressure.

How to Improve Low Testosterone in Women

The good news – yes, there is good news if you have Low T – is that this condition is easy to treat.

A hormone doctor will run diagnostic blood tests to assess a variety of hormone levels to ensure that the correct one is receiving the necessary balancing via biologically identical hormone replacement therapy.

For the treatment of low testosterone levels, females most often receive testosterone cream custom compounded to the dosage they need. The testosterone cream absorbs easily and rapidly enters the bloodstream where it goes right to work searching out testosterone receptors throughout the body.

There are also some natural ways that may reverse low testosterone in women if the condition has not yet reached the point where severe symptoms are present, including:

  • Losing weight – reducing belly fat helps to increase testosterone production
  • High-intensity interval training – two to three times a week engage in twenty to thirty minutes of interval training such as speed walking for two minutes followed by a thirty-second sprint – repeat 5 to 10 times
  • Intermittent fasting – consuming all of your meals between noon and 6 pm increases testosterone production and weight loss
  • Sleep – get between 7 and 9 hours a night
  • Correct diet –avoid sugar and increase intake of coconut and extra virgin olive oils, nuts, and avocados

Where to Get Testosterone Therapy for Women
