Testosterone Therapy For Women, Frisco, Texas

Although most women are familiar with the effects that decreased estrogen levels can have as they near menopause, they may not know that testosterone deficiency can have significant effects on well-being. Our physicians use testosterone therapy to help both women and men enjoy feeling healthier and younger.

 

Testosterone in Women

Testosterone levels typically peak for women in their early twenties and then begin to decrease, causing a decrease in sex drive through the twenties, thirties, and forties. This can be worsened by oral contraceptive usage that suppresses the production of testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.

  • Low levels of testosterone in women can cause:

  • Decreased sex drive

  • Fatigue

  • Heat or cold intolerance

  • Decreased mental clarity and concentration

  • Decreased energy and stamina

  • Loss or thinning of hair

  • Anxiety and depression

 

Research has shown that testosterone implants known as pellets can effectively treat these symptoms in women.

 

Testosterone Pellets

Testosterone pellets are sub-dermal implants made up of hormones, such as testosterone, that are condensed into small pills. These pellets are about the size of a Tic Tac and are typically placed through a tiny incision at or above the hip. Once implanted, the pellets will slowly and consistently release testosterone into the body, resulting in increased hormone levels for 3-5 months*. The pellets will naturally dissolve and do not need to be removed.

 

Progesterone Pellets

Progesterone pellets are sub-dermal implants placed in a similar fashion as testosterone during the same procedure, for appropriate individuals after evaluating symptoms and labs. 

 

Benefits of using testosterone pellets for hormone therapy in women include:

  • Increased energy and stamina

  • Increased lean muscle and decreased body fat

  • Increased libido and heightened performance

  • Improved mood and sense of well-being

 

As with all hormone treatments, patients will first undergo extensive testing to determine their current hormone levels. A specific dosage of hormones will then be prescribed as necessary and follow-up tests will be conducted in order to ensure symptom relief is achieved with the lowest levels of hormones possible.
