Testosterone for Menopause?

Testosterone is an important hormone for many women. Yes, we are able to prescribe this for you on an individual basis, except if you are a competitive athlete or are planning to become one.

There is not currently a licensed preparation of testosterone available for women in the UK but if we prescribe it, we can explain about licensing, how to apply it, what monitoring will be needed and what possible side effects may occur.

Prescribing testosterone is endorsed by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence Guidelines Management of the Menopause NG23 2015. This leaflet gives you more information.

This picture shows the different types of testosterone than we can prescribe for women under NICE guidance.
