Yes, women need testosterone supplementation as well. The decline in estrogen and progesterone levels puts women at risk for health issues such as ovary failure, osteoporosis, heart diseases, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss and impaired vision, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. These risks decline when estrogen and progesterone is supplemented, for example with pellet therapy. However, women also may need their testosterone levels to be replenished. A testosterone imbalance in women affects general wellbeing, mental clarity, libido as well as muscle tone and mass. The balance of testosterone and estrogen is crucial for the brain and gut as the two combined produce serotonin – the hormone of wellbeing, happiness and emotional balance.
