Everything You Need to Know About Testosterone Cream for Women

11 March, 2024

Testosterone cream for women? If you’re unsure about the benefits of this or how it might work, read on as you've come to the right place! It's well documented how testosterone can help men as they age, but what many people don't know is that it can be a game-changer for women, too. Testosterone works to improve your mood, confidence, libido, and energy levels. Plus, it helps keep you fit and strong by improving your bone density and muscle mass. Pretty impressive stuff, huh? That's why many women are now turning to testosterone cream to enhance their hormonal health and overall wellbeing. So, here is everything you need to know about testosterone cream for women and what it can do for you.

First off, what is testosterone cream, and how does it work?

Testosterone cream is a topical hormone replacement therapy that is available via prescription. It is applied directly to the skin and absorbed into your bloodstream, increasing the amount of testosterone in your body and helping to rebalance your hormones. It works exactly the same way as the testosterone produced in your ovaries and adrenal glands by binding to the testosterone receptors in your body. 

Who should use testosterone cream?

Has your sex drive gone MIA? Are your energy levels draining faster than an old iPhone battery? Or maybe you are lacking in motivation but just don't know why. Well, it could very likely be that your testosterone levels are not up to par. Low testosterone in women can be a major buzzkill, and that's putting it mildly. There are many reasons that women can suffer from low testosterone, such as stress, over-exercising, a poor diet, or being on the pill. But whatever the reason, women of all ages are now realising the benefit that testosterone cream can have on their mental, physical, and hormonal health. So, if you suspect that your testosterone levels are in need of a boost, you should consider trying a testosterone cream.

So, what are the benefits of using testosterone cream for women?

While testosterone treatment is most famously used to increase your libido, it is more than just a one-trick pony. As we have already touched on it briefly, it also has a significant effect on your mental health. It can help with physical symptoms such as vaginal dryness, pain during sex or frequent UTIs, all caused by a lack of testosterone.  

While it won't be able to solve all your life problems, (finding your missing car keys or remembering to water your houseplant is unfortunately up to you), it can transform your health and wellbeing in some phenomenal ways. Here is a quick rundown of what testosterone cream can do:

  • Fires up your libido

  • Elevates mood

  • Boosts energy levels

  • Sharpens mental focus

  • Improves sleep quality

  • Helps to regulate your periods

  • Increases muscle mass

  • Improves bone density

  • Supports heart health

How should testosterone cream for women be applied, and how often?

The answer to how and when to apply testosterone cream may vary depending on the strength and type of testosterone cream you have been prescribed. Like with any medication, it is always important to read the instructions first. Just one pump of our cream is all that's needed, and applied to the forearm, upper arm, or inner thigh at the same time every day for the best results. Make sure your skin is clean and dry, and rub in circular motions until it’s fully absorbed. This will ensure you get our testosterone cream’s wide range of benefits to help get your groove back.

How long does it take to feel the effects of testosterone cream?

Many women who use our testosterone cream have found instant relief from their symptoms. For others, it may take a few weeks to feel the full effect. It depends on various factors, including your symptoms, their severity, and your body’s individual response to testosterone. But many women find that after using testosterone cream for several months to a few years, their hormones have been rebalanced, and their symptoms have been remedied.

Is testosterone cream suitable for me, and are there any side effects?

Many women are put off taking testosterone for fear of symptoms like acne, excessive hair growth or skin irritation. While these can be issues for some women, most find a low dose testosterone cream, like ours, to be a very safe and effective treatment for their symptoms. That’s why we first start with an online consultation to determine whether it's the right choice for you.

Can I use testosterone cream if I am using other types of hormone replacement therapy? 

Yes, testosterone cream can be used as part of a broader hormone replacement therapy treatment plan. But you should, of course, consult with a Doctor and let us know if you are currently on any other form of hormone replacement therapy during your online consultation with us when getting your personalised prescription. 


Why does the type of testosterone matter?

The testosterone we use here at Hormones + You is bioidentical. What does bioidentical mean? Well, put simply, it's the most natural form of testosterone you can get on the market, particularly when compared to its synthetic counterparts. Bioidentical testosterone is made from particular plants that have an identical chemical structure to the naturally occurring testosterone produced in your body, specifically Mexican yams and certain varieties of soya. This means that our testosterone cream perfectly matches your body's hormones, and you will react to it in precisely the same way. This means no nasty side effects and great effectiveness. 

Our cream is specially made for women and comes in a personalised dosage made especially for you and your symptoms. So, if your testosterone levels have dipped lower than your Uber rating after a raucous night out, then don't worry, as we can help. Our bioidentical testosterone cream is here to rebalance your hormones and make you feel revitalised. 

For those that are over the age of 38, we also have our bioidentical testosterone plus cream, which is a unique formula of testosterone, estriol, and progesterone that will help increasing your sex drive, improve your vaginal dryness, and clear up bladder issues that can happen as we age. Plus, it gives you that added boost of vitality, perfect for women who are not already on HRT and looking for a natural way to feel good for years to come.

So, don't wait to start feeling like yourself again, take charge of your health, and start an online consultation with us today and get your very own personalised testosterone cream delivered straight to your letterbox.
