Weight Gain

*A loss of muscle mass followed by a sudden unexplained increase in body fat, particularly around the area of the abdomen is a common sign of diminishing testosterone in women. Other body changes that occurs with low T levels that can accentuate this change in woman’s physique is osteoporosis and loss of muscle tone. A woman’s musculoskeletal system is also affected by low T levels as it can lead to muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, and pain in the muscles and joints. Studies currently being done are suggesting that low testosterone levels is the leading cause of weight gain in women above the age of 35. Low testosterone levels in a middle aged woman should be suspected when there is an increase in body fat and weight without an increase in caloric intake. Unfortunately, this change in a woman’s physical appearance is too often attributed to a natural aging process when in fact treatment with TRT can delay and even reverse these changes.


Disrupted Sleep

*Frequent waking and/or insomnia have been attributed to low testosterone levels in women. The reason for this is not well known, but it is suspected that low testosterone causes other regulatory hormones and brain neurotransmitters to become unbalanced, which are important for restful sleep. Although there are many causes of insomnia and unrestful sleep, low testosterone levels should be checked as a potential cause in a woman.


Fatigue

A sudden drop in the level of energy in a woman is often a sign of low testosterone levels. She may experience a difficulty to do work or participate in activities that would normally be easy to do due to fatigue. A woman can experience a difficulty in getting out of bed in the morning, an increase need to take naps throughout the day, or have an overall feeling of being drained of energy. Normal daily activities becomes a struggle. If a woman has low energy levels throughout the day without any other explainable cause (such as adequate sleep or medical conditions) then low testosterone should be suspected as the culprit and investigated.


Depression

*Low testosterone levels can manifest as lack of motivation, depression and alternating feelings of sadness, happiness, or anger. Normal amounts of testosterone is essential in normal brain function as it interacts with estrogen to produce serotonin, which is a mood stabilizer. When lacking in T, a woman can experience an increase in anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, sadness, anger, and depression as a result from emotional instability. This mainly occurs because mood stabilization, mental focus, and concentration are closely related to a woman’s testosterone levels. These symptoms of low T are commonly misdiagnosed and treated with antipsychotic medications when in fact TRT can not only potentially treat these mood-based symptoms, but also provide many other benefits as well without the side effects and complications of these medications.


Anorgasmia

*The inability to have orgasms (“anorgasmia”) occurs commonly in women with low testosterone levels. Anorgasmia often happens along with a lack of overall sexual desire and intimacy. TRT often can help this condition in women with low testosterone levels and who cannot achieve orgasm, usually by increasing libido and the sexual arousal.


Osteoporosis

*Decreased bone density is a manifestation of chronic low testosterone levels. This decrease in bone density increases the likelihood for bone fractures, particularly in older individuals. Testosterone is a key component in bone production and maintenance and it’s decline is one of the leading causes of osteoporosis in women above the age of 50. TRT can increase bone density as much as 8.3% per year after initiation of treatment.


Anxiety

*Lower levels of testosterone has been linked to increased anxiety and possibly panic attacks in recent studies. As mentioned prior, testosterone is an important regulator in mood and neurotransmitter regulation which includes its effect on a woman’s anxiety levels. Because testosterone levels aren’t regularly checked as a cause of excessive anxiety, mood stabilizers are often (and needlessly) prescribed. Correcting a low testosterone level in a woman with a high level of anxiety could potentially relieve her of the problem without the need for mood stabilizing drugs.


Irregular Periods

*Changes in menstruation can be a cause of a sudden decline in testosterone hormone levels, usually as irregularity of the menstrual cycle or lighter than normal menstrual flow. In very low T levels, periods can stop altogether. In conjunction with irregular or lighter periods, symptoms of menopause and perimenopause such as hot flashes, irritability, and mood changes can occur. If these symptoms appear in women earlier than expected for her age, low T levels can be a potential cause. TRT often can reverse these issues.


Hair Loss

*Another role of testosterone is to support hair production and maintenance. Low testosterone in women can be seen as patchy or even complete scalp baldness. Although not as obvious, a decrease in body hair is also seen.
