Ever hear the words “Low T?” You probably think “men’s” health, right?
But women actually need small amounts of testosterone, too, as part of the mix of hormones that keep mood, energy levels, sex drive, and bodily functions working smoothly.
Testosterone does play a role in women, though. Healthy testosterone levels help a woman:
Maintain sex drive: After menopause, women might experience a dip in their sex drive. This low sex drive could be the result of lowering testosterone levels. In some women, testosterone patches have been found to revive sex drive. Cohen cautions, however, that treating reduced libido requires more than just testosterone. Therapy and creativity could also help improve your sex life.
Keep bones healthy: The correct balance of testosterone furthers and supports the growth and strength of healthy bones, while too much or too little can harm bones. Testosterone replacement after menopause could help some women maintain healthy bones.
Manage pain levels: According to research in the journal Pain, women who take birth control pills and have levels of testosterone that are out of balance with levels of estrogen might have less ability to manage their pain response.
Preserve cognitive health: Changes in cognition and cognitive fatigue may be related to changing hormone levels. Correcting testosterone levels might help prevent cognitive fatigue, according to research in Gynecological Endocrinology.
