    Hi Rachel, yes I used to be on testosterone implants and then patches, they were marvellous but then in the UK they stopped prescribing them saying they were ineffective for women and not proven to be of benefit - which was an absolute lie!  Whereabouts in the world are you writing from please?

    Hi Rachel, you are so lucky your consultant has suggested testosterone, in my opinion.  When I had Intrinsa testo patches, which they no longer produce, I felt like my old young self.  My mood was great, no depression, I had physical strength and my romantic life was back on track.  I had blood tests which proved my testosterone level was nearly zero.  A lot of people don't realise that women also have a small amount of testosterone in their bodies and lack of this has a great effect on well-being. If you don't mind telling me what the costs are for implants privately in a message I would very much appreciate this as I would like to go back on testo myself if possible.  I was really balanced but as said, the NHS stopped supplying this for cost reasons although they did put out something about it being withdrawn because it wasn't effective, which astonished me as this was completely untrue.  Hope this helps you.

      I always thought testosterone on its own causes women to loose there feminine look?

      I'm not a fab of synthetic hormones so I'll stick to my natural bio identical ones. I'll check with my naturopath if I can take a natural version. Good luck hun and I hope you feel more yourself soon.. I feel the same way in timesxx
