What Are The Causes Of Low Testosterone Levels In Females

Low Testosterone Levels in Women

What are the causes of low testosterone levels in females? As a woman ages, her body systems and organs start to slow down. This includes two vital parts of the body that produce testosterone; the pituitary gland located at the base of the brain and the ovaries.

Just like men have testosterone flowing through their bodies, women need a certain amount in their systems in order to stay strong, healthy and vibrant. However, as both genders age, testosterone levels will deplete causing low T. In other words, growing older will cause a deficiency in the vital hormone called testosterone.

Some testosterone is also produced in the adrenal glands in women. These glands will also slow down their production of this hormone with age. When this begins to happen, most women will experience symptoms that could impede upon their quality of life.

The three main testosterone producing areas in the body:

  1. The pituitary gland
  2. The ovaries
  3. The adrenal glands

Professionals will recommend that as soon as signs of low testosterone levels in females start, a woman should get her hormones tested. We work with many women who are just starting to feel “old” and “worn out.” They may not know what is causing their ailments, but being proactive and getting tested with a blood test early on is the best way to approach a hormonal deficiency. Getting early treatment can save years of pain and suffering from low T.

What Is The Treatment For Low Testosterone Levels In Females

The treatment for low testosterone levels in females is called testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). For women who test positive for low T, they will receive a cream instead of intramuscular injections (that men will get). The reason women get a cream instead of injections is because they need much less testosterone in their systems than men do. However, they still need it in order to eliminate low T symptoms and reach optimal health.

In order to eliminate the side effects of low testosterone levels in females, there are a few steps that a woman will have to follow to get started:

  1. Call our clinic and speak to an expert clinical advisor about your symptoms and what you are experiencing. The advisor should be very understanding towards what you are going through and also be very compassionate as well as knowledgeable. He or she can answer all the questions that you may have about TRT and help you to decide if this kind of therapy is right for you or not.
  2. If you decide to continue with treatment for low testosterone levels in females, you will next be set up with an appointment at a local clinic to get your blood tested and to get a physical exam completed. These are necessary in order to for our doctors to determine if your symptoms could be caused by low T and to also make sure that you are in otherwise good health to be a good candidate for TRT.
  3. Your appointment should be quick and the results from your tests will be sent back to our clinic where our doctors will analyze the results very closely. It is important to understand what a woman’s testosterone levels are in order to write the proper prescription for her. She will need just the right amount of testosterone cream in order to rid of her symptoms without experiencing any side effects from the medication.
