The FDA has failed to approve Intrinsa the first testosterone patch designed to treat women with libido problems. However, many women are trying testosterone to see if it improves their condition. Some endocrinologists claim that women's bodies generally do make sufficient testosterone unless they have had their ovaries removed. Libido problems may be more likely caused by depression or marriage problems and 90% of libido problems are non-hormonal. The body continues to make testosterone even after menopause. Side effects of testosterone treatment include baldness, deep voice, liver damage, acne and abnormal hair growth.
