From what I read, (which I do a lot of), Bio-identical hormones can actually PREVENT cancer.

See if you can find a Doc who works in that area. AND, ask lots of questions.

too much testosterone occurring naturally can have some bad side effects so I third check with your dr and get a blood test!

I have a friend who went through something similar and was prescribed a testerone cream by her Doctor. Said it worked wonders for her. So, I'll second the chat with your Dr.

Good luck!

I'm not sure if I would trust a testosterone cream from a supplement company. I recently heard that the high concentrations were deemed unsafe by the US Food and Drug administration. You may want to check with your doctor about your concerns. Your doctor can check your testosterone level and prescribe the level of cream best for you. That's what I did. I've only been using it for three weeks, so I can't tell you how well this dosage will work, but anything is better than what I was going through.
Good luck to you.

Mummy,
I don't know any thing about the testosterone cream and can't give you an answer to if it works or not or it's side affects.

I have made this this topic sticky so hopefully some one will see it and give you the advice your seeing:)

Hi guys, I need your help! I have recently read the Fatigue Solution and there is a chapter on menopause and perimenopause and what is happening to our hormones. It is clear that all my troublesome symptoms come from a lack of testosterone and I have sourced a cream from Century Supplements. I wonder if any of you have used it and did it work? Any side effects? It is not available in the UK where I live so I don't want to ship it over if there are contra indications from using it or it just doesn't work. I am going through perimenopause at 57 and already have a progesterone coil fitted as my TOM is so heavy. I cannot have HRT as my mother has breast cancer but I would like to feel more like myself again and is this testosterone cream the answer? Looking forward to your thoughts.
