Prescription Only Medication (POM)
Testogel sachets are a topical gel that can help to increase levels of testosterone in women during menopause, as a low dose of testosterone has been shown to increase libido and improve mood/concentration.
Testogel contains the male hormone testosterone and is classed as a hormone replacement therapy. The gel is widely prescribed to those suffering with a range of health issues that means they produce less testosterone than normal, as well as those going through menopause. Testogel is a highly effective way of elevating testosterone levels in the body and reducing symptoms of low testosterone such as low libido and low mood.
Testogel Sachets are prescribed to men who don’t produce enough testosterone naturally and need treatment to help increase it. The hormone gel is most used by those who suffer with hypogonadism, low sex drive or have chronic fatigue. Your GP or pharmacist will need to assess your condition for you to access this medication.
