Testosterone is currently not licensed to women in the UK. However, it is prescribed by many menopause experts as it has proven benefits in numerous clinical trials. It is also very safe when it is used in the way that it has been prescribed for you and is recommended in the NICE Guidance for menopause treatment. AndroFeme®1 is licensed for women in Western Australia.
In this booklet by balance, Dr Louise Newson offers evidence-based information on what testosterone is, who needs testosterone replacement, how is testosterone treatment given and the side effects of testosterone treatment.
