My brother has been compounding my hormones since 2000. I just saw a doctor who ordered blood tests to check my hormone levels, primarily because my hair won't stop falling out. The doctor's office faxed the results to my brother and she had prescribed testosterone cream on the labia. I didn't like that answer and now the doctor is in Australia until mid January. The way my brother explained it is that the testosterone will increase the libido, it will build up muscle tissue and do several other positive things. It is not dangerous to apply to the labia. I am going to call the office and ask that another physician explain the results to me. Compounding HRT is the way to go. The pharmacist can closely duplicate the hormones naturally produced in your body when menopause causes them to produce less.
Great article, well written and god conclusions of collected data.
How ever I am still curious if creating a “shortage” of sperm and decrease of testosterone by cycles of repeated ejaculations during a short period of time, maybe during the course of hours followed by “rest-days” if that over time would provoke the body to produce more Testosterone and sperm in a response to “progressive overload”.
Since this is the way the body handles a lot other things that challenges it´s system with everything from resistance-training, “repeated skin-abrasion”, bacteria and even some toxins.
