Mostly testosterone, are produced by the
and adrenal glands. Androgens are important for maintaining
bone density and sex drive. After menopause the ovaries stop
making androgens, the adrenals continue, but the total
amount produced by the body is greatly diminished. Androgens
are available combined with estrogen, for replacement
therapy. The only combination drugs is ESTRATEST®,. This is
prescribed as second line therapy. For women who have not
achieved good relief from hot flashes, or who are
complaining of loss of sex drive, on estrogen. However there
is a very natural alternative that works extremely well,

Bone Loss From Menopause:
After menopause bones loose significant amounts of calcium.
In 25% of women this bone loss can result in osteoporosis
with the resultant high risk of broken bones. Taking
estrogen stops the loss of any more calcium but does not
replace the calcium already lost. Taking calcium supplements
and vitamin D will not replace the lost calcium either.
There is now evidence that taking a estrogen-androgen
combination can promote new bone formation.
Loss of Sexual
interest in sex is a common complaint of
women. Androgens have been shown, in several studies, to
improve libido ( sex drive ) in postmenopausal women. One
study of 136 postmenopausal women complaining of sexual
dysfunction were treated initially with estrogen alone. The
estrogen therapy relieved vaginal pain associated with
vaginal dryness, but did little for the loss of sex drive.
The women were not depressed and were in stable marital
relationships. When they were given estrogen-androgen
combination therapy 80% reported improved libido.
Between 30% -
70% of postmenopausal women complain of psychological
symptoms such as moodiness, anxiety and irritability. Higher
androgen levels have been associated with better energy
levels and an increased sense of well being.
Androgen-estrogen combination therapy has been shown to
increase skin thickness and suppleness. There may also be an
associated increase in oiliness and acne.

as acne, deepening of the voice, baldness and increased
muscle mass. Hirsuitism is the appearance of facial hair.
Some women on androgens do show some of these symptoms
however, the symptoms are mild and readily reversible by
lowering the dose or stopping the medication. Some studies
have shown that these changes are LESS frequent in
estrogen-androgen users. There is no evidence for an
increase in liver disease in women who use estrogen-androgen
therapy. However women with liver disease should not start
Androgen-estrogen therapy generally decreases HDL (good
cholesterol ). Estrogen alone increases HDL and this is
considered the reason that estrogen protects from heart

into consideration before starting androgens.

are on estrogen and still experiencing hot flashes. 2. You
are at high risk for osteoporosis. 3. You are on estrogen
and still experiencing loss of sex drive. There are other
questions you must answer with your physician. What is your
BMD ? What is your cholesterol HDL ratio? There are still
unanswered questions concerning androgens. How will
androgens impact on heart disease and breast cancer over the
long term? More long range studies are needed. For now take
the information you have and discuss it with your physician
if you think you might be a candidate for androgen therapy.
