Women’s Sexual Health Treatments in tulsa
Adequate serum levels of testosterone are as necessary in women as in men. Since the normal serum level of testosterone in women is much lower than that in men the percentage drop in serum level and symptoms may be greater in women, sometimes with catastrophic effect. When the testosterone level drops below detectable levels, women suffer significant mental and physical handicaps, which are only reversed with testosterone administration. The Restorative Wellness Center provides female testosterone replacement therapy in Tulsa, to help women improve their sexual health.
While loss of libido is the best known of testosterone deficiency symptoms, there are many others. Testosterone has some critical biologic functions.

Other central effects are more subjective, but testosterone deficiency is associated with depression, fatigue, apathy, and loss of motivation. Female testosterone therapy from our clinic in Tulsa has been proven to improve women’s sexual health.
