Description

Testosterone, the hormone responsible for libidinal energy, is produced by women mainly in the ovaries. This is an excellent book on testosterone. I am over 55 and despite taking bioIdentical estrogen @ progesterone cream I felt like I was dead inside with no more energy to do anything.

Testosterone, the hormone responsible for libidinal energy, is produced by women mainly in the ovaries. When the ovaries shut down at menopause, the amount of testosterone they produce is reduced by half, resulting, for many women, in diminished sexual desire, thinning pubic hair, flatness of mood, dry skin and decreased mental sharpness, among other effects. I asked my doctor to give me Testosterone cream and from the first day my life changed drastically.

The Hormone of Desire: The Truth About Testosterone, Sexuality, And Menopause

The Hormone of Desire: The Truth About Testosterone, Sexuality, And Menopause.

Susan Rako has brought her groundbreaking message about the miraculous benefits of testosterone-the female hormone-to women and physicians around the world via Oprah!, Dateline NBC, the New York Times, the Congress on Women's Health, and the Today show, among others. The Hormone of Desire has become the standard-bearer for a new age of women's health, giving women and their doctors the opportunity to make informed decisions.

The Truth About Sexuality, Menopause and Testosterone. Menopause is a journey through poorly charted waters and most physicians approach the possibility of prescribing supplementary testosterone for women suffering symptoms of its deficiency with the resistance and ignorance of sailors who believed the earth was flat, and that if they proceeded to sail on, they would fall of. Author, Susan Rako, . In her own experience, she found that if the dose is too high, women may feel worse.

Recommended Citation. The Hormone of Desire: The Truth Sexuality, Menopause and Testosterone by Susan Rako, February 1, 1996. Art and Design Arts and Humanities.

Millions of women experience a traumatic loss of sexual desire during menopause. Although estrogen and progesterone alleviate many of the effects of menopause, they cannot address flagging sexual desire. This first book to reveal the benefits of testosterone supplements for menopausal women will be an invaluable tool for women and their doctors.

I felt like this was a very good book to add to the list I read before making an appointment with my doc to have the "menopause talk." I felt like I needed to be informed and this book helped me to make a list of questions I could take to the appointment.

Because this book is over 15 years old some of the info is not all that up to date. Bioidentical hormones are widely available now, at least in the USA. My insurance plan covered compounded formulas, so I did not have to fight for what I needed or pay high prices for it as Susan Rako did when she started on her quest for safe, effective relief from change of life symptoms. I am sure grateful for all her research and encouragement to find a doctor who will listen and help with an individualized plan, not just a cookie-cutter approach.

Finally, I had my hubby read a couple of the chapters and then we were able to have a frank discussion about menopause issues that all women face. Anything that contributes to good communication between partners is a good thing!

This is an excellent book on testosterone. I am over 55 and despite taking bioIdentical estrogen @ progesterone cream I felt like I was dead inside with no more energy to do anything. I asked my doctor to give me Testosterone cream and from the first day my life changed drastically. I started to exercise again and I am full of hope, joy, I'm alive again. My doctor and I are still working on the dosage, it takes
a few months. I am now at 4mg/day. Thank you Dr. Rako for writing this book.

And incredibly refreshing and validating read for the menopausal woman who wants to remain a woman despite menopause. No ignoring or whitewashing of the loss of sex drive due to loss of testosterone.
Factual, educational, helpful.

Purchased this book thinking it had some kind of magical words that would help me through my total hysterectomy. But, all I found were recommendations about things I already knew. Would recommend this to anyone who was thrown into a total hysterectomy without enough time to do some research on what to expect.

I discoverd my Testerone level was very low many years ago. I did recently download this book, and wish I had discovered it back when I first had issues in my early 30's. If you want to get Testosterone for women after visiting your doctor. My doctor has approved a product from Australia that can be shipped to you. We've tested my blood levels every month. I feel the difference and it is well worth it. Go to Hormone Solutions .com. It's $77 for a supply that should last you awhile. I take .5ML. Good luck! The book is worth reading if you've just realized you have this problem!

As a doctor and a sufferer, the author pioneered what testosterone means for women. I read the orignal and am looking forward to the revised version,,,
Book was in exact condition advertised. received it quickly. Book was very informative and an excellent source of information on the subject of testosterone therapy. I would recommend it for any woman who is trying to make an informed decision on whether or not to begin treatment for low testosterone.
