    After several times hearing you-all give advice to men to check hormones, I’m surprised this does not come up when there is a problem with women’s libido. For me, as a single person, sex isn’t the issue, but I have had three junctures of sudden decrease in “zest for life” that my Endocrinologist indicated often is part and parcel of women’s sexual interest: at my ages of 57, and again at around 60, and then more recently at age 65. Each time, getting topical delivery bio-identical hormones tested and adjusted, including progesterone, a mild estrogen, and testosterone have been noticeably helpful. Disrupted sleep patterns can occur when hormone drop is especially severe. Particularly bringing testosterone to a woman’s pre-menopausal levels can be very effective for improving thus giving all-round greater daily well-being.

    …that is, testosterone is often effective for improving sleep.
