Viagra for Women

There have been a number of news items about “Viagra for women” in  the media today. The announcement has been about the amazing discovery of a testosterone gel applied to the mucous membrane of the nose, that boost a women’s sex drive. This has been promoted by Dr Susan Davis, one of Australia’s foremost researchers in women’s hormones, working at the Jean Hailes Foundation in Melbourne.  Women produce testosterone throughout most of their lives, and this assists in sex drive, energy, strength and well-being. From age 40 onwards (the perimenopause) this testosterone level drops and many women find their libido declines, as well as energy and assertiveness. This can create disharmony with partners, frequently leading to broken marriages and relationships.. Men sometimes find it hard to comes to terms with the decrease in their partners libido and interest in sex.

This amazing breakthrough is not a breakthrough at all, as I have been using testosterone for women for over 10 years, for its benefit in well-being, energy, self-confidence and libido. Instead of a gel, I use it as a troche, as it also absorbs through the mucous membrane, just as the gel described above will do. I have many younger women using testosterone as a cream, very successfully, for libido problems. I had a letter during the week from a specialist expressing concern about my use of testosterone in women.  A few points I will mention to him – the doses I use are individualized to be correct for each women I give it to, unlike the “viagra for women” gel mentioned in the news report today, which will be one size fits all. Second, there are a number of medical papers pointing out that testosterone appears to reduce the risk of breast cancer in women. Lastly, it has been proven to be of great benefit to the women I give it to, and I have never had any problems with its use.
