                          There is increasing evidence that testosterone replacement improves the quality of life for postmenopausal women.

                  Female Study 2
                      Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science   2002
                          Testosterone therapy in postmenopausal women improves cognitive function, sexuality, strength, and their sense of well-being.   The decline in testosterone becomes apparent a decade before menopause.

                  Female Study 3
                      Massachusetts General Hospital & Harvard Medical School   2006
                          Testosterone has a positive effect on bone density, body composition, and neurobehavior in women.

                  Female Study 4
                      The Jean Hailes Foundation   2006
                          Tesosterone deficiency in women results in a decreased sense of well-being, chronic fatigue, and a loss of sexuality.   Testosterone levels in women can begin to fall in the twenties with symptoms beginning in the thirties.
