Dangers of Low
Testosterone in Women
An increasing number of women are being diagnosed with low testosterone. Although men make and need a lot more testosterone than women, it is still very important for a normal androgen response in women.
Even though many of the risks of low testosterone are similar in men and women, there are several female-specific risks:
• Reduced fertility
• Increased risk of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Because low testosterone in women generally occurs around middle age, it is often accompanied by low estrogen at the pre-menopausal period. This combination of two low hormones lead to a high rate of heart disease, bone fractures, and vaginal atrophy.
