BioTe injectible hormone therapy, or non-oral testosterone has been found effective for increasing low sex drive that causes concerns in many postmenopausal women. Menopause can negatively affect your libido in several ways. During menopause, your testosterone and estrogen levels both decrease, which may make sexual function lessen. A decrease in estrogen can also lead to vaginal dryness and thinning of the vaginal wall, which can often lead to discomfort during intercourse.
At Restoration MedSpa, we are a Certified BioTE® Hormone Therapy Provider. We use only bio-identical hormones, not synthetic ones, to inject pellets directly into the body, rather than oral medications, creams or gels to balance estrogen and testosterone levels. BioTE® injections provide 3 to 5 months of proper hormone balance without the daily hassle of hormone replacement therapy medications (HRT).
In a recent study, investigators evaluated the risks and benefits associated with testosterone therapy in women with low libido. Results suggest that when compared with a placebo, testosterone significantly increased the following sexual functions in postmenopausal women: Frequency, desire, pleasure, arousal, orgasm, responsiveness and self-image. Results also showed a reduction in concerns and discomfort regarding sexual health. The investigators noted that this study “provides robust support for a trial of testosterone treatment, with a dose appropriate for women, when clinically indicated in postmenopausal women.”*
A simple blood test, covered by most insurance plans, can let you know if you may be a candidate for BioTE® Hormone Therapy. Estrogen alone supports more than 400 vital functions in your body; testosterone has hundreds more. By balancing these hormones within your own body, you can not only improve your sexual health, you can also increase the collagen in your skin keeping it more healthy. Talk about a win-win!
