Testosterone Supplements Improve Sexual Satisfaction in Women

Up to 82 percent of sexually active postmenopausal women have sexual problems including low sexual desire, excessive dryness and pain during intercourse. Many women benefit from adding testosterone to their postmenopausal hormone cocktail— according to a study led by Reuthairat Tungmunsakulchai from Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. Women received either testosterone undecanoate (40 milligrams twice weekly) or a placebo (fake testosterone) with their supplemental estrogen. Women receiving testosterone reported a greater sense of well-being, increased sexual desire, improved lubrication, more orgasms and improved sexual satisfaction. Testosterone is a valuable addition to the hormone mix commonly prescribed to postmenopausal women. (BMC Women’s Health, published online December 2, 2015)
