CONCLUSION:: Testosterone gel of 10mg had positive effects on several
aspects of ***ual life such as frequency of ***ual activity, ******,
arousal, fantasies and ***ual interest in postmenopausal women on HRT.
Several psychological variables were positively influenced. The given dose
resulted in too high serum levels. Even if no negative effects were
observed, monitoring of serum levels and a decreased dose should be
considered in future studies.
