Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is one of the most talked about and popular treatments for men in modern medicine. Surprisingly, it has received little fanfare for women even though it is significantly safer than estrogen treatments.
Unlike Estrogen Replacement Therapy, with Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Women, there is no increased risk of breast cancer, uterine cancer or blood clots leading to heart attack or stroke. And, TRT for women requires only 1/10th the dosage needed for men.
Best of all, the benefits of replacing testosterone instead of estrogen for women are more rewarding. Women receive the same benefits as men when their testosterone is at optimum levels.
Perhaps one reason TRT for women is not as popular as it is for men is the myths surrounding it. To be clear, there is no risk of hair growth or masculinization when women replenish their testosterone.
