Testosterone Patches Found To Increase Sexual Desire In Menopausal Women

Testosterone patches that are used in some men to help them improve their sexual performance// and give them the desired sexual characteristics. Apparently the same patches can be used in women whose ovaries have been surgically removed to increase their sexual desire and activity.

In a study published in Arch Intern Med. this month the authors have looked at 447 women diagnosed with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) after ovarian surgery. The women were randomly assigned to receive either testosterone patches or a placebo patch for 24 weeks. The testosterone patches had three separate dose of testosterone.

Compared to the placebo, the intermediate-dose testosterone patch significantly improved sexual desire and increased the frequency of satisfying sexual activity whereas the lower testosterone dose offered no benefits. The higher dose was found to be no better than the intermediate dose testosterone patch.

There were no serious side effects to the patches. There however remains some anxiety in finding the right dose of testosterone and more research maybe required.
