Testosterone is a vital hormone in women. It reveals physiologic effects through androgen receptors in body tissues, including breast, heart, blood vessels, intestines, lungs, brain, spinal cord, nerves, bladder, uterus, ovaries, endocrine glands, vaginal tissue, skin, bone, joints, and fatty tissue.
Hormones play a major role in your wellness. They help to regulate your metabolism, energy level, appetite, blood pressure, fertility, libido, emotions, sleep and body temp.

Menopause is divided into three basic stages: perimenopause, menopause, and post menopause. During this time, the ovaries begin to atrophy which causes a decline in the production of the hormones that stimulate the menstrual cycle; estrogen and progesterone.
Perimenopause is the three-to-five-year period before menopause begins. Most women enter this stage in their late 40’s. Leading up to menopause, hormone levels shift and your body starts producing less estrogen. You may start to have irregular periods and begin to experience some menopause symptoms. You can still become pregnant during perimenopause.
You have officially begun menopause once you’ve missed your period 12 months in a row. It usually takes one to three years for your body to go through menopause, but every woman is different. You may feel strong symptoms during this time, or you may slightly different than usual.
The average woman begins menopause at age 51 or 52. But sometimes menopause begins earlier. Certain medical procedures or treatments can cause the onset of menopause and it can come much sooner.
Post menopause includes all the time following your menopausal transition. Once you’ve completed menopause, you may notice your symptoms get better and new ones occur. Now that your body is creating less estrogen, you’re at higher risk for conditions like heart disease and osteoporosis.
The symptoms and signs of menopause can begin in perimenopause and linger through post menopause.
