Testosterone patches can be conveniently used and applied. The patch must be applied to a clean, dry area on the abdomen. A single Intrinsa patch contains of testosterone, of which 300 micrograms of testosterone is released into the body over a 24 hour period. A single patch works for 3-4 days which should then replaced at the same time every 3-4 days. It's necessary that testosterone patches be applied to alternate areas on the abdomen when changing the Intrinsa Patches to avoid skin irritation; the treatment can be continued for up to a period of 24 weeks. However, if you suffer from skin irritation or any other side effects, you must consult a doctor immediately.
Now this is a remarkable change if you think about it. The "concentration" of testosterone and estrogen - estradiol is what really counts - changed by 24% from just one lifestyle change. Imagine what could happen as you pile on some of the other Testosterone Increasing Techniques and Estrogen Lowering Strategies that I have mentioned on the web site. There is no reason that you cannot dramatically improve your ratio of testosterone to estradiol (unless you happen to be training for the Olympics with a professional trainer).
Abnormally high testosterone levels in women can lead to a variety of symptoms. Most often, women with high testosterone levels develop male pattern hair growth (hirsutism), especially on their faces and chests. More rarely and over time, some women may experience virilization, which is increased muscle mass, redistribution of body fat, enlargement of the clitoris, deepening of the voice, male pattern baldness , acne , and/or increased perspiration. It is important to note that some women develop hirsutism without having a high testosterone level.
