All women naturally produce testosterone. While commonly associated with problems in men, testosterone deficiency in women can cause serious health problems and extremely uncomfortable symptoms.
At the New Age Medical Clinic, we offer safe and effective testosterone-replacement therapy for women over the age of 35.

Testosterone is a “male” hormone made in small amounts by a woman’s adrenal glands and ovaries. Men produce about ten times more testosterone than women. A woman’s testosterone is highest around age 20 and slowly declines with age, particularly after age 35 and during menopause.
Testosterone therapy raises testosterone levels in the body. We prescribe testosterone injections or creams at levels appropriate to your individual levels and symptoms. Some testosterone is converted to estrogen, making it highly effective for treating menopausal symptoms.
