Side Rffects and Risks of Testosterone Use in Women
It is essential for patients to be regularly monitored by a medical professional throughout the use of testosterone supplements.
Monitoring blood levels of testosterone is essential to ensure that the dose is correct. If blood levels are correct, side effects do not occur.
Continual high doses in women can result in side effects such as:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Joint swelling
- Increased body hair
- Deepening of the voice
- Increased acne
- Weight gain
- Persistent headaches
- Signs of virilisation (abnormal development of male sexual characteristics)
Side effects such as these are extremely unlikely when doses are monitored and blood levels are kept within the normal range.
