Testerone use for women
Anon_71984 posted:
I had a hysterectomy 13 years ago and was left with both my ovaries. I have never taken hormones and am wondering if I can take testerone to increase my sex drive and help me lose weight. I have also been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and my weight is not coming off.

About 4 years ago my wife heard about pellet inserts of testosterone for women and men. We are in our upper 60s so we thought we would give them a try. Women get testosterone and a little estrogen and men get only testosterone.

We are completely satisfied with the results. Her aches & pains are gone, she has more energy, we did lose weight, and her sex drive improved dramatically. She also lubricates rapidly and orgasms more easily. The same goes for me, as I feel like I am in my 30s again!

Everyone is different but it is something to look into.
