One of the most common misconceptions about testosterone therapy is that it’s strictly a male concern; that testosterone relates to hormone therapy for men, but not for women. Nothing could be further from the truth. Actually, women benefit greatly from having a proper balance of different hormones, and testosterone is part of that mix. Though typically associated with men, testosterone actually plays a significant role in the female anatomy and can have a significant impact on a woman’s sexual health. For women who are suffering from a testosterone deficit, LongevityMed is pleased to provide hormone therapy services, including testosterone therapy.
Why Testosterone Therapy?
As women age, and particularly as they reach menopause, their body’s natural hormone production tends to slow. As hormone levels become imbalanced, there may be any number of unwanted health effects.
Testosterone therapy is a way for women to avoid some of those unwanted effects, and to preserve some of their youthful vitality. At LongevityMed in Raleigh, NC, we often recommend it for women who have had surgically induced menopause or who have tried estrogen therapy and found it to be not completely effective.
Testosterone therapy may help to alleviate diminished sex drive, decreased energy level, depression, fatigue, and other common issues.
About Testosterone Therapy at LongevityMed
If you’ve never had testosterone therapy (or any other kind of hormone replacement therapy) before, you may have some questions or uncertainties about the process.
It begins when you join us in our Raleigh, NC studio, where we’ll provide you with a full complimentary consultation. We’ll ask about your medical history, chat about your symptoms, and answer any questions you may have. We’ll also take some basic lab work to help pinpoint your exact hormone levels, which can help us tailor our treatment plan to meet your needs.
Note that we provide bioidentical testosterone, which means it’s genetically identical to the testosterone that your body produces on its own.

Testosterone Therapy as a Preventative Step
We welcome women to come see us about testosterone therapy if they are struggling with diminished libido, overall fatigue, depression, or other chronic conditions.
We also advocate for a proactive approach to HRT. We prefer “prevent it” to “fix it” as a clinical model and believe testosterone therapy can be a good way to avoid some of these chronic conditions in the first place.
