ABSTRACT
The article discusses the effect of testosterone on menopausal women. A research conducted on postmenopausal women, treated with testosterone patches or placebo, yielded significant increase in sexual desire and decrease in distress in the group receiving 300 milligram of testosterone per day. The study also revealed that breast cancer was diagnosed in four women who received treatment while none in the placebo group. The author concluded that such treatment has significant change in sexual function but the long-term effects are unsure.
