Testosterone: The Unexpected Women’s Health Hormone

Women seeking anti-aging hormone therapy in our Baton Rouge clinic are often surprised to learn how significant a role testosterone plays in their hormonal health. Mainly associated with men’s health issues, testosterone is often overlooked when it comes to female wellness, especially its effectiveness in combating the aging process.

While estrogen and progesterone are commonly discussed factors of menopause, less-than-optimal testosterone levels can cause subtle changes many women assume are just side effects of aging. Thankfully, we can reverse some of these symptoms with the help of hormone therapy.

In this post, we’ll look at the ways testosterone replacement therapy can help ease menopause symptoms and give women a vital boost of energy and strength.

Testosterone and the Aging Process

As we age, testosterone levels naturally fall. This leads to a dip in bone health, cognitive function, libido, and overall energy. While women have much lower levels of testosterone than men, maintaining the correct amount is still essential for fighting the signs of aging and feeling vibrant.

Testosterone is responsible for regulating multiple functions within the body, and having the proper amount can:

  • Support bone strength and growth
  • Maintain cognitive health, especially for post-menopausal women
  • Boost libido and overall energy
  • Stabilize mood swings

If you are feeling tired, frail, or even depressed, testosterone may be the culprit. Testosterone replacement therapy could be the missing piece of the puzzle you need to restore your stronger, more vivacious self.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy and Menopause

Balancing testosterone levels and restoring any drop in production can bring about a more youthful, alert, and active you. At Rejuvime Medical, we offer several options for boosting testosterone production or supplementing it with bioidentical testosterone.

  • Testosterone supplements
  • hCG, which stimulates your own body’s production of extra testosterone
  • Clomid, a drug that triggers your body’s production of hormones
  • Anastrozole, a drug also known by the brand name Arimidex, which helps to block the conversion of testosterone into estrogen

Start Your Journey

When you come in for a consultation at Rejuvime Medical, we will order a comprehensive blood panel to determine if testosterone replacement therapy can benefit you. Then, we will discuss which treatment option would best suit your body and lifestyle—and work with you to create a custom plan.

We closely monitor your levels over time to ensure your body is getting the help it needs. If additional treatment is necessary, we will recommend other hormone replacement therapy options and even connect you to a network of trainers and health coaches to direct your journey.
