Androgen treatment in women

Research output: Contribution to journalReview ArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Many women, both before and after menopause, may have symptoms of androgen deficiency. unexplained fatigue, lack of well-being and diminished libido. If plasma levels of bioavailable testosterone are low, these symptoms will mostly be relieved by judicious administration of testosterone. The addition of testosterone to postmenopausal hormone replacement regimens is becoming more widespread, and other potential uses include prevention and treatment of bone loss, treatment of spontaneous or iatrogenic androgen deficiency in premenopausal women, and, possibly, management of the premenstrual syndrome.
