Day 10

Anorgasmia

Anorgasmia, or the inability to have orgasms, is a common symptom for women with plummeting testosterone levels. This difficulty with achieving pleasure from sex is usually accompanied by a drastic drop in sexual desire overall. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that a woman’s ability to achieve orgasm will return even if the underlying hormonal condition is successfully treated, though many women do go on to recover full and normal sexual function. Many medical professionals believe that an inability to achieve orgasm is more a psychological than a physiological issue.

If you’re diagnosed with low testosterone levels, you should carefully weigh the potential benefits of treatment against the drawbacks and seek medical opinions if you have unanswered questions.

Day 9

Hair Loss

Hair loss is one of the more visual symptoms of low testosterone, as the hormone supports healthy hair production and maintenance. This symptoms most often manifests in patchy hair cover on the head, or even baldness in women. Body hair is also affected, though these symptoms are typically less noticeable, particularly in women who regularly shave their legs and armpits.

As mentioned, one of the possible side effects of hormone replacement therapy is increased hair growth. This may be a good thing if depleted testosterone levels have caused you to lose hair, but if not, they may be unwanted. It’s extremely important to take supplemental doses that will restore your testosterone to normal, rather than excessive levels. This will keep the possibility of developing such side effects in check, and can help reverse many of the symptoms of androgen depletion. If you undergo this type of therapy, you will require careful, regular monitoring by a health professional.

Day 8

Anxiety

Even though testosterone is considered a “male” hormone, studies link a decrease in normal levels to a increased anxiety, which can, in extreme cases, cause symptoms like panic attacks. Again, these symptoms occur because testosterone plays an important role in mood and neuropsychiatric regulation, and hormonal fluctuations can cause changes in brain chemistry that trigger symptoms.

As mentioned, anxiety isn’t the only psychiatric symptom associated with low testosterone in women. Depression and a consistent and pervasive low mood can also result. Like depression and low mood, anxiety symptoms are often misdiagnosed and, as a result, mistreated with unnecessary drugs. However, you should note that testosterone supplements can also cause mood imbalances. In particular, they can trigger major mood swings and an increase in aggressive behavior. Always proceed with caution, and always make sure that you’re not taking too much testosterone or you might experience some unpleasant side effects.

Day 7

Irregular Periods

The sudden drop in the testosterone hormone can also cause changes in menstruation. In most cases, these changes manifest through irregularity of the menstrual cycle and lighter-than-normal periods. In older women, and in women with severely depleted levels of testosterone, it is possible to miss periods altogether. While women naturally experience decreases in their testosterone levels over time, beginning in their late teens or early 20s, menstrual irregularities are a sign that the problem has progressed to the point where treatment is necessary.

Women with low levels of testosterone may also experience other symptoms of menopause and pre-menopause. Specifically, hot flashes and mood changes such as irritability may occur. If you’re experiencing signs of early menopause and you aren’t yet in the usual age range for your fertility to be in such decline, hormone deficiencies may be the root cause of your health issues. In most cases, these problems are reversible.

Day 6

Osteoperosis

Bone deterioration is another common result of lowered testosterone in women, though this symptoms typically does not appear right away, but rather develops gradually over time. Testosterone plays an important role in bone production and maintenance, and when levels diminish, the body is no longer able to maintain bones as well as it once did. In fact, declining testosterone production is one of the leading causes of osteoporosis, a medical condition which affects millions of women, most of them over the age of 50.

Women with osteoporosis are more susceptible to bone breaks and fractures, which may not sound serious, but can actually cause severe complications, particularly in older patients. Fortunately, there are many different treatment options available to women who have osteoporosis, many of which cause an appreciable rise in bone strength. Your doctor can check for bone problems using simple, inexpensive tests, including X-rays.
