Testosterone and Women
I know, we normally associate testosterone with men. However, testosterone production plays a vital role in the female body because of SEX!
Aside from the obvious night sweats and not so obvious mood swings, I knew something was off in my body when my ability to naturally lubricate during sex started to decrease. Talk about depressing! I had only been experiencing truly good sex for the last few years and I wasn’t ready to lose it.
I’ll just say my husband is gifted in his ability to get me going, if you know what I mean. So, when my body stopped reacting to him I knew something was off. It had nothing to do with my sexual attraction or desire to have sex. My body was just not responding the way I wanted it to and I had no control over it.
As we gals enter into perimenopause/menopause, our testosterone levels drop along with our estrogen and progesterone levels.
Some of the side effects of low testosterone in women are:
- lack of ability to naturally lubricate
- lack of sex drive
When I started noticing all of these changes in my body, I had my hormone levels checked. All of my hormone levels were off the charts…negatively. My physician’s exact words were “you are feeling old, aren’t you”.
And, I was feeling old, and feeling so many other emotions. It wasn’t pretty.
Knowing that I could not take hormone replacement therapy (HRT), I just sucked it up and dealt with the symptoms. My mother died of breast cancer in her 40s so taking HRT was not a risk I wanted to take.
I was newly married and worried that the changes I was experiencing with our sex life would affect my marriage. Lucky for me, my husband is amazing and loves me regardless.
When I accidentally discovered that I could balance my hormones by using essential oils and essential oil infused supplements, my life was forever changed.
I am now using these plant based essential oil products to naturally balance my estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels…safely! Because of these products I no longer have hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia or depression. AND, my libido is good and my body naturally lubricates itself.
In my opinion, using essential oils to balance hormones is the world’s best kept secret. It is my life’s passion to help other women find relief safely and naturally. You can read more about some of the products I use here.
I would love to show you how you too can naturally balance hormones and find relief from menopausal symptoms.
I offer weekly classes on my Facebook page or you can see my list of upcoming events here. You may also reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-300-7288. I am here to help you.
Let’s get those hormones balanced.
Live healthy, my friends, and remember that age is just a number.
