Women can sometimes experience hormone deficiencies in the months and years before and after menopause as their testosterone and estrogen levels start to fluctuate. Although estrogen is more commonly known as a woman’s most vital hormone, testosterone is also vital to a woman’s health since it plays a role in energy, sexual libido, muscle mass, and bone strength.
