Testosterone is a hormone needed by both men and women. Men need testosterone to keep sexual organs healthy and to maintain male characteristics such as deeper voices and larger muscles. Women need the hormone along with estrogen and progesterone to regulate fertility cycles and keep sexual functioning normal. Replacement therapy can be oral or topical. The topical applications are by cream, transdermal patch or gel. Testosterone is mainly used to treat low levels in men, but there are several other uses, all aimed at alleviating symptoms of loss of testosterone or increasing sex drive or male characteristics.
Testosterone topical gel is used to treat the symptoms of low testosterone in men who do not produce enough natural testosterone. Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased sexual desire and sexual function. Men may also have low energy and depression. The loss of muscle tone is also a symptom. Men with low testosterone have more breakable bones and their voices are not as deep. Testosterone gel works by supplying testosterone to replace the testosterone that is normally produced in the body.
Women can use topical testosterone cream to abate symptoms of menopause by building up testosterone levels in the body. Application may be effective in raising the libido in women. Topical applications of testosterone may also relieve the menopausal woman's dry and thin skin. Women may be relieved of vaginal inflammation and dryness associated with hormonal changes.
A skin disorder called lichen sclerosis can appear in any part of the body. One form can occur in the vulva area and vagina. The skin turns shiny, thin and white. The symptoms are itchiness and painful fissures. Treatment typically is topical steroids or a low-oxalate diet, but topical testosterone and progesterone creams have also been proven effective.
Women who wish to change their gender to male use testosterone therapy. This therapy assists in inducing and maintaining masculine secondary sex characteristics. The hormone must be administered on a regular basis to maintain the characteristics. Daily doses of topical testosterone creams in small doses are used. Some of the characteristics include increase and pattern changes in hair growth, changing of body fat positions, deepening of the voice, increased musculature, and increase in sex drive.
One use for topical testosterone is in treating women who have chronically low sexual desire. Though women wishing to become pregnant may not be able to use the topical hormone, others may be helped in achieving a more normal libido. This use of testosterone has not been proven effective scientifically, and research is ongoing.
