Testosterone for Women: Here’s Why It’s So Vital to Your Health!
Medically Reviewed by Dr. Nicole Avena
Did you know that testosterone isn’t just a male hormone?
Both men and women have testosterone. In fact, men and women have virtually identical types of hormones. The relative amounts of the various hormones can differ, and traditionally assigned gender differences often come from these variances in hormone levels.
Testosterone for Women
Women overlook the need for testosterone.” -Tana Amen, BSN, RN
People tend to think of testosterone as an exclusively male hormone, but women produce and need testosterone too, just at lower levels. Healthy testosterone levels in women help support:
- sex drive
- menstrual health
- breast and vaginal health
- bone density
- muscle mass
In both men and women, testosterone helps protect the nervous system and helps ward off low mood and serious cognitive and memory issues. Testosterone is the primary hormone responsible for libido in men, and likely helps maintain libido in women. The #1 complaint of women with low testosterone is decreased libido, which is why many women seek out libido supplements to help balance this hormone.
The human body produces hundreds of hormones, but the following five probably have the most direct influence on brain/mental health: thyroid (energy regulation), melatonin (sleep patterns and 24-hour cycling), estrogen (cognition and mood), progesterone (sexual behavior, stress, and mood), and testosterone (mood, motivation, sexuality, and strength).
When hormones are healthy, you tend to feel vibrant and energetic. When hormones are off kilter, you’re likely to feel less than optimal. This may change the way you think, feel, and act.
There are many potential causes of hormonal imbalances in both men and women. The most common causes are diet, stress, environment, age, and lifestyle.
Women are more likely to experience imbalances in estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid. In men, low testosterone levels are common. However, both women and men can have imbalances in other hormones that affect the brain, especially as they age.
Testosterone and Aging
Like many hormones, testosterone levels decrease with age. The aging process can leave some with low testosterone levels, which may increase feelings of anxiousness, mood issues, and a host of other issues. Testosterone also can be prematurely reduced (at any age) by long-term stress, environmental pollutant exposures, insulin imbalance, narcotic use, and many other lifestyle factors.
Women experience the most dramatic hormonal shift with menopause. At around age 50, women stop menstruating and their ovaries stop producing the hormone estrogen. As a result, women can experience a number of symptoms, including hot flashes, fatigue, vaginal dryness, and lower libido.
Low levels of estrogen and other changes related to aging (such as weight gain) can raise a woman’s risk of heart health issues, cerebrovascular problems, and bone mineral density loss. Low estrogen and testosterone may affect cognitive decline later in life, too.
Reducing sugar intake and regularly engaging in weight-bearing exercises are effective lifestyle factors that can help mitigate the effects of testosterone reduction.
