Testosterone is often considered to be a male hormone; television shows and the media often portray it as being the defining characteristic of tough men. But for women, testosterone is essential in regulating conception, mental health, muscle and bone mass, and a variety of other bodily functions. Of course women produce much less testosterone, but it is important that their testosterone levels remain balanced and level; levels that are too high or too low can have dire consequences on a woman's bodily functions. Testosterone, along with progesterone and estrogen, is vital for overall well-being of women.
Testosterone dominance is defined as an abnormally high level of the hormone testosterone. In women, testosterone dominance can have serious effects both physically and psychologically. Pregnant women with high levels of testosterone, in general, give birth to smaller, less-healthy babies that often grow up to experience social and developmental difficulties. Like estrogen, testosterone levels can fluctuate throughout a woman's lifetime and particularly during menopause, when hormone production ability decreases. From the hormonal imbalance that results come the various unpleasant menopause symptoms. Testosterone dominance can also result from external factors, such as intense stress.
