Avatar f tn I asked my doctor about it once, and she said it didn't increase women's libido very much, something like having to take a major amount of testosterone for a tiny (like 2%) increase in women's libido, according to research. I'd take the research over Redbook magazine.

Avatar m tn I can only comment on one matter and that is that testosterone levels and libido are not related. Your testosterone level may be normal, or in your case high, while your libido is low. In my case my testosterone was normal yet I had low libido. A low libido can be related to several non testosterone causes, including depression (whih you mention), other medication, anxiety issues, erectile dysfunction etc. If I were you I would (in the following order): 1.

Avatar m tn I really like his testosterone doctor because even though my husband was on the low-end of normal he still treated my husband because of his symptoms . My husband has been on testosterone therapy for over a year now and he says he feels like a new man. His doctor does all of the follow-up testing every three months to make sure his cardiac health stays OK because of the testosterone. My husband was also dealing with fatigue, muscle loss, enlarged testicles, and interrupted sleep.

Then I started having constant sharp pain, burning, stinging in both my feet, calfs, knee (mostly right leg). I started noticing peeing and bowel movement was becoming difficult (trouble starting, frequency). Then started having testicular pain and sharp pain in the rectum (Urologist diagnosed rectum pain as pelvic floor problem and physical therapy has been helping the rectum pain only).
401095 tn?1351391770 i am to take DHEA, 25 mg per day to help with the energy and libido....any more than 25 mg and a female runs the very obvious risk of developing excess facial hair, acne, and even possible deepening of the voice....that's why females who've had hysterectomies are not given replacement DHEA in any dose greater than 25 mg....and as you can imagine, the entire balancing out and replacing missing hormones is an extremely delicate balancing act....and every BODY is different....
Avatar m tn Testosterone replacement is a complex thing about which the vast majority of health practitioners are not adequately informed. Frankly, T replacement for the issues you specifically report usually has minimal effect, often just temporary. Overly aggressive T replacement without adequate co-medications (such as HCG) can result in painful testicles and permanent testicular atrophy. There are very few practitioners who are adept at T replacement, which, honestly, is still in its infancy.

Avatar m tn I was on androgel for several years with good libido results before discontinuing due to prostate cancer. After brachytherapy for my cancer, I am in remission, and after 2+ years resumed taking androgel. I am on androgel again, and have high Testosterone levels (about 1000), but my libido has never recovered.

Avatar m tn In the mean time she will apparently still remain with virtually non existant testosterone levels. I realize that testosterone will be at low levels for a female, but her tests were with female ranges and she if at zero percent or below range (23% below range).

Avatar n tn In my opinion this is your normal not every has a highly charged libido. As for the anxiety/panic attacks, I suggest taking a trip by yourself to recharge. Also maybe doing some meditation might help. From a medical standpoint I have no idea. But this just seems like your normal, my suggestion try to not worry about it much and just find something to relax you everyday and distract you from this issue. Hobbies are great for this kind of thing. Hope this helps.

Some common low testosterone symptoms are decrease in sex drive, ejaculation problems, shrinking testicle, fatigue, loss of body hair, difficulty gaining or maintaining muscle, depression, and loss of strength.
