UK NHS considering prescribing Test to women with low sex drive...

 

Testosterone on NHS 'could help boost women's libido'

Women suffering from a loss of sexual desire should be offered testosterone on the NHS, a doctor has suggested.

Nick Panay, from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, told a GPs' conference that it could also improve women's energy and mood.  But he said there were no licensed testosterone products for women, who need much lower doses then men.

Around one in three women is affected by the condition at some stage in their lives.

Mr Panay, consultant gynecologist at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said there was a need to tell women about the potential benefits of testosterone.  He told the Royal College of GPs' conference in Harrogate:

"We're not saying that female androgen replacement is a universal panacea.  We're not saying it is a female Viagra. Women are, after all, much more complex creatures than men (and do not respond) to the on/off button that Viagra offers.  But I think that it should be part of the counseling process."

slip a mickey

I wish there was a way i could slip some in my gals drink a lot of the times.  i've seen some posts about a favorable change in women with provi too, but i've also read studies where women shouldn't use it.  Too bad not everything on the internet is true.

Women TRT

I'm finding that it's not uncommon for a TRT doctor to be treating just as much women as men. More and more people are becoming aware just how much hormones govern our existence. With the rate neuroscience is moving, it won't be long until we have the ability to directly control all of our hormones without the need for exogenous treatments.
