Women Health - Part 4

Women and Testosterone Hormone

Testosterone is usually considered a male hormone, but it is also needed (in a much smaller amount) by a woman’s body. In women, testosterone is produced by the ovaries and the adrenal glands.

Estrogen replacement therapy without balancing testosterone at the same time can lead to even greater testosterone deficiency in postmenopausal women.

Testosterone is a hormone that influences our personality. It gives us a sense of wellbeing and empowers us to take actions in life. Testosterone increases feelings of emotional comfort, self confidence and assertiveness. When testosterone levels are in balance we are able to live our lives with passion.

Testosterone has both a physiological and a psychological impact on women's sexuality. Testosterone enhances libido in women. Testosterone increases muscle mass and strength. Testosterone decreases body fat. Testosterone helps you feel more energetic.
