Menopause is not a single point in time when hormone production is switched off, but a gradual decline that brings an end to female fertility. During menopause, a woman’s levels of estrogen and progesterone diminish – leading to a lack of menstrual periods.
A woman is considered to be in menopause when she’s had no menstrual cycles for 12 months.
The right balance of hormones is vital to a woman’s health. But in menopause, when levels are dropping, a deficiency of one hormone can trigger a relative excess of another and result in common imbalances such as:
Results in mood swings, migraines, fat gain in hips and thighs
Triggers hot flashes, night sweats, palpitations, foggy thinking, memory lapse & vaginal dryness
Leads to decreases in bone or muscle mass, metabolism, energy, strength, stamina, exercise tolerance & libido
Results in insomnia, anxiety, sugar cravings, feeling tired but wired & increased belly fat
Causes chronic fatigue, low energy, food and sugar cravings, poor exercise tolerance or recovery & low immune reserves
Today, it's still a treatment that healthcare providers offer to women struggling with the natural effects of menopause. And some research has shown that testosterone can, in fact, provide the following benefits to women:2
- improved relief of vasomotor symptoms of menopause
- increased energy levels
- enhanced feelings of well-being
- decreased breast tenderness
- improved sexual desire
- increased sexual sensitivity
- increased frequency of coitus
- enhanced orgasms
