All great questions as usual. :) And this may be slightly off topic, but what about testosterone replacement therapy in midlife women as well? I keep hearing about how T hormone levels are also very important in women (albeit in much less amounts than men) for energy, libido, etc... but there is virtually no reliable research on how much, best absorption delivery, how often for midlife women, breast cancer/clotting risk factors and if T should given alone or with estrogen + progesterone is appropriate. And unless you live in a big city, hardly any HRT specialists are available to meet/discuss solutions and safety of HRT or just TRT for menopausal women, and even when you find one-- it's big $$$! It's all just so frustrating for us women who are in midlife looking for relief!
