Default Testosterone levels in Women and the Effect on Weight Loss/ Gain

Dear friends, looking for good evidence to support a woman's need for testosterone. Seems nearly all the work ( and articles) are oriented toward the men.

If you know of any articles that would support HRT for women please post a link or the tidbit. It can be other areas like muscle strength, not just weight issues.

Desperately seeking support to present to endo.

I had a total hysterectomy in 2007. I never did HRT of any sort. I did notice a class action law suit involving Testosterone replacement in men.

Men get a far higher dose.

I used to get HRT and loved how I felt. Doctors changed at my clinic....lost access to HRT.
