260. Women and Testosterone I join Dr. Harper on her “Women’s Power Hour” in the UK on IG live and it was such a good chat she let me have the audio for the podcast. Dr. Kelly Casperson and Dr. Harper discuss the importance of testosterone for women's health, including muscle mass, metabolism, mental health, and the health of the genitourinary tract. They address common questions and misconceptions about testosterone, such as why it isn’t easy to prescribe and the normal ranges for women. They also explore the use of testosterone in the treatment of genetic urinary syndrome of menopause and its potential benefits for breast cancer survivors. The conversation highlights the need for personalized hormone therapy and the importance of considering other factors that may impact libido and overall well-being. Why are there many urologists who are experts in female pelvic health and hormones? There are no “perfect” testosterone levels; we don’t treat it to a level, but rather, there is a range. How Testosterone helps with genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). In perimenopause, sometimes testosterone is the first thing we start for symptoms. Sometimes testosterone supplementation takes several months to have effects. What to do if you don’t feel effects.  Dr. Harper shares some tips and tricks. Testosterone is important for women's health, including muscle mass, metabolism, mental health, and the health of the genital, urinary tract. There are misconceptions and challenges surrounding the prescription of testosterone for women, including the lack of a female-licensed product and the off-label use of male testosterone products. Testosterone can be beneficial for women with genetic urinary syndrome of menopause and breast cancer survivors, but individualized treatment and monitoring of hormone levels are important. Hormone therapy should be personalized, and other factors that may impact libido and overall well-being should be considered. Testosterone positively affects brain function and mental clarity, which can greatly improve the quality of life for women. Should we use hormones for preventative health? We make estrogen via the androgen pathway. Reasons that we benefit from testosterone. There is no female-licensed product in either the UK or the USA. https://www.instagram.com/drshahzadiharper/ https://theharperclinic.com/ FirmTech sponsors this podcast today.
