Dr. Tara Scott: Female Libido and Testosterone (Video)

(Video Transcript)

Hi guys, Dr. Tara Scott, with Strut Health, talking about female libido.

We always think it’s all about testosterone, right? Because it is with men, and for women, there is a tiny bit of truth to that.

There are androgens in women, or male-type hormones, that are very important in the female sexual health cycle.

With testosterone, there’s what we call a diurnal variation in the sense that it’s highest in the morning and lower at night. But, also there is a small peak at ovulation. That’s kind of nature’s way of getting you in the mood to reproduce.

Testosterone does decrease as you age. So, when you have stress, this decrease can be accelerated.

At the time of menopause, usually testosterone is higher because when you don’t ovulate and you don’t release an egg, LH goes up and it stimulated the production of testosterone. So, we would expect at midlife that there could be a little surge in libido. 

But, studies have shown that the level of libido and the level of testosterone in the blood don’t always correlate. 

Although, the global consensus on testosterone did say that the indication for testosterone replacement would only be hypoactive sexual disorder or female arousal disorder in a postmenopausal woman. The studies are mixed as to whether or not testosterone replacement helps.

So, I do see in some patients that it can help, but there are other things that could also help libido as well, which we’ll discuss in the next video.
