The Anti-Aging Group Division for Women
would like to bring clarity towards two common myths about endocrinology.
The first myth is the notion of the exclusivity of "male" and "female" sex hormones. While it is true that men have higher concentrations of testosterone and lower concentrations of estrogen and progesterone than women, all of these sex hormones play vital roles in both sexes. The second myth is the notion of "good" and "bad" hormones. Some hormones such as DHT, HGH, HCG and Testosterone play important roles in aging that have been somewhat misunderstood.
The fact is that every hormone plays a vital balancing role in the body of both men and women. Rather than be labeled as "good" or "bad", each hormone has an optimal equilibrium or normal level in the body with respect to the other sex hormones. It is when your sex hormones are out of balance and out of their proper ratios that you may manifest a health problem.
Testosterone is widely known as being the male hormone and testosterone replacement therapy is increasingly being prescribed by doctors for use in male hormone therapy especially for Low T an ED / Erectile Dysfunction (Impotence). It is now clinically known that testosterone is important to a woman's sexual health as well - and more and more doctors are prescribing testosterone for women to treat sexual dysfunction in women.
