Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone for women benefits


Avatar n tn A number of studies have shown that menstruation can be restored in many women with PCOS. For example, in a study at Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati, 43 women who were not having periods took Glucophage, and 39 of them resumed normal menses.(6) In another study at Jewish Hospital, 11 teenage girls with PCOS were put on metformin and a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. Ten of the 11 girls resumed regular periods.(7) IMPROVED CHANCE OF PREGNANCY.
Avatar f tn The endo indicated that low testosterone in women is a good thing and isn’t the source of my problems. She suspected PCOS and ordered her own battery of tests. I’ll provide the abnormal results below for you (normal range in parenthesis): Cortisol – LOW at 0.6 (6.2-19.4) Dhea Sulfate – LOW at 32.3 (57.3-279.2) Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy – LOW at 29.1 (30-100) In addition, this time total testosterone was normal at 13.6 (10-55), as was free testosterone at 0.5 (0.0-4.2). TSH was normal at 0.
Avatar m tn Will testosterone increase penis size? Has Extenze had any benefits on penis size? Does Nitric oxide increase penis and will it remain permanent?
Avatar f tn s one of the problems with using testosterone pellets in women. The levels tend to get WAY too high. A level of 500 is about 10x the upper range of the normal female level. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do aside from waiting it out. Physical activity should help you burn up the excess quicker but that can be hard when you feel like crap. Creams or gels are generally better than injections for women because you can maintain a more consistent level. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Obviously, anything that gives you side effects that bad is probably not the right treatment for you. Generally, women aren't given that treatment as it can cause acne, hair growth where women don't want it, and other male attributes. In your case, you had low testosterone and high SHBG, which might have been able to be treated by dietary changes. But people are different. A problem is, testosterone varies a whole lot in both men and women, by the day, hour, week, etc.
401095 tn?1351391770 boosts levels of testosterone in men and estrogen and testosterone in women...I do know that if you have a reproductive gland tumor like prostate cance u r not supposed to take it...anyway i have been taking 10 mg for years but have never been diligent with it everyday...then my friend went to the doctor and she is worn out and he told her to take it....she is also a recovering addict...I was always scared it would make me grow hair on my chest so i took it in small doses...
Avatar f tn when men get older they make less testosterone and in our industrial world men loose it quicker progesterone is the building blocks for testosterone so if he does not have the building material how would he build the finished item. its safe and very good for yourself aswell, it has so many benefits for women its mad they dont prescribe it from doctors. well its not mad its economics they cant make any money from it as its not a drug. take a look at this website http://www.progesterone.co.
919239 tn?1269394658 I found that I still had no energy,no drive,depressed, just no zest for life. I finally had my testosterone checked (2 times) My total testosterone level was 195 & 203. Both low levels for a 54 yr. old male. I just started taking testosterone injections once per week in the last 2 weeks (2 injections-1 ml) I understand it usually takes up to 5 weeks for the full benefits. I was wondering if any one else found this method helpful?
Avatar n tn s a personal choice to be made after researching the risks and benefits. The ovaries of intact women produce hormones their whole lives for good health. Women whose ovaries have been removed or are impaired by hysterectomy do not produce as many hormones as naturally menopausal women (Rancho Bernardo study). I hope you can find the help you need.
368646 tn?1208393887 It is not yet known for certain if supplements of estrogen and testosterone, or supplements of DHEA, also increase the risk of developing these types of cancer. In women, high testosterone levels can cause acne and growth of facial hair. Overall, the studies that have been done so far do not provide a clear picture of the risks and benefits of DHEA. For example, some studies in older people show that DHEA helps build muscle, but other studies do not.
Avatar m tn It is best that you discuss this with your doctor and get this infestigated. Testosterone levels can be checked by doing a blood test. For me it has had some benefits.
Avatar m tn A recent study from France found men who have a taste for spicy foods tend to have higher testosterone levels than those who can’t handle the heat. Of the 114 male participants surveyed, researchers saw a clear correlation between frequent hot-sauce usage and higher T-levels. Study authors suggest the findings may be due in part to capsaicin—the fiery compound in chili pepper that previous studies have associated with increased testosterone levels.
Avatar n tn I made it a point to have hubby thoroughly checked out and now I know he has a low sperm count. I have heard Clomid being used on men as well as women, What do I do/?
Avatar m tn I take testserone shots and have doctored for several years and the only way I can get an erection is with a penial injection. I can not ejaculate. My wife is very sexy good looking and loves sex. The more often the better. I told her she is plenty good looking that she would have no problem finding a friend with benifits and that it would be OK because you have you husbands blessing. That went over not well. Now she abstaining and I know that is not making her happy.
Avatar m tn I went through puberty with more estrogen than testosterone. I am on testosterone injection but it does not solve my ED issue. I am thinking of injections as Viagra does not work any more..
Avatar f tn I suggest u get ur testosterone checked. The #1 symptom is hair loss in women and hair growth in other unexpected places. I have really high testosterone I'm trying to lower, it has been making me lose a lot of hair and I'm only 29. I have high testosterone from PCOS. MAKE SURE UR DOCS LOOK INTO THAT. I started intense cardio, eating foods with little carbs and low sugar, and drinking spearmint tea. Also thinking about colon hydrotherapy.
Avatar m tn m not sure exactly what you are taking testosterone for, or if you you are doing this under the supervision of a physician, but I would highly suggest you do some research to see if it's right for you. Testosterone (and most hormone replacement therapies) have a ton of side effects. One of the more serious is an increased risk of blood clots. Take it from me, someone who has had blood clots that went into my lungs and almost killed me, this is not a pleasant experience.
401095 tn?1351391770 I am also very interested in how the testosterone shots go. I have thought about them for myself. it is not unusual for women to be low in testosterone. it occurs natuarlly in women too but is counter balanced by estrogen. maybe i need some of that? lol, i don't think so. i have noticed that adrenalin is great for fighting pain(as are other naturally occurring chemicals)and have often thought about getting my levels of all these chemicals checked. maybe i should.

623156 tn?1322865851 I was reading a weekly newsletter I receive in my email and it mentioned that Zinc is a key natural aid in boosting fertility. For women Zinc helps cell divsion which is critical to the earliest stages of conception and fetal development. For men it helps with adequate levels of testosterone and sperm counts. Research has shown with 15 mgs a day in men it can increase semen and testosterone production, in women it can help ovulation and fertility.
Avatar m tn m not considering testosterone treatment for my baby but I know that an imbalance of hormones can effect the body in many ways, not just sexuality. My dog seemed healthy when I was feeding him standard store bought dog food. When I changed over to a high quality organic dog food I was simply looking out for him in the long run. It's the same kind of thinking with hormone levels. Im just looking out for him.
