Women take reduced dosages of testosterone in order to treat low libido. This is a common “off-label” practice among doctors in the USA and Europe, countries in which no testosterone product is officially approved for use by women. Plus Natural also produces a 1% testosterone cream, tailored especially for female use. Plus Natural Testosterone cream is a popular testosterone treatment option for women due to the fact that it requires no surgery, no pain, can be applied by the patient in the privacy of her own home, and the dose is accurately controlled.
Your doctor may prescribe synthetic progesterone (progestin) due to a chemical similarity, and because it is cheaper than bioidentical hormones. However, medroxyprogesterone results to birth defects should you accidentally fall pregnant. It passes into breast milk and harms the infant, and is therefore, unsuited for postnatal depression. Medroxyprogesterone also increases the risk of blood clots, especially in those who smoke. It can lead to depression, suicidal ideation, and dementia. It also predisposes women to breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer. If medroxyprogesterone is used over a long period of time, it may increase the risk of a stroke or heart attack. The minor symptoms of synthetic medroxyprogesterone are weight gain, itchy rashes on the skin, acne, hair loss, insomnia, bloating, menstrual irregularities, vaginal discharge, and tender breasts. You may wish to discuss bioidentical natural hormone creams with your doctor, in lieu of synthetics.
