They have given me it once and I hope they will repeat but it's not showing on my repeats list. Menopause specialist recommended it but gp reluctant to prescribe anything never mind testosterone. I hope they will continue to allow it

I saw a clip on the TV about testosterone. This doctor, or specialist was saying what was available now is generally too strong as it is manufactured for men. What is needed is a product especially formulated for menopausal women.

Yes I've had one specifically for women but that's not available on the NHS yet so gp prescribed that is manufactured for men. I prefer the female cream but will be thrilled if I can continue with the men's gel version on the NHS

No reason why you shouldn't and why in goods name all this 6 month nonsense  :bang:

There used to be a womens version but it was discontinued because no one prescribed it! Now GP's are a bit more clued up and are prescribing testosterone there is no womens version to prescribe.  Anyway mans stuff works good enough at the right dose.
There are plenty of women on testosterone who have been on hrt so long they didn't know when their last period was.
Yes defo "bit of a dick" Birdy  :-X

Testosterone helped quite quickly with my foggy head and in about 3 weeks I actually felt like I was "present" in the world and didn't lose words or whole sentances anymore.  When it's really bad I suppose that is what dementia actually feels like to someone who has it (not that I had dementia but I was convinced I did and my family thought so too!!)  Anyway, its gone now.

Go sort that doctor out Robin - sounds like they are confused. Most practitioners say no testosterone within 3 months of starting or changing a regime - not 6 months post period?  Oh dear Mr/Mrs dick is confused.com

Or see a Pharmacist for advice and find out which GPs prescribe it for women?
