Is it available on the NHS?
NICE Guidance on menopause states that testosterone can be considered for those that need it (NG23).
Testosterone can be prescribed on the NHS if the prescriber is familiar with it and is willing to prescribe it ‘off license’. Some prefer not to take this decision and refer to a specialist for advice before prescribing. Other GPs will have prescribing restrictions which means they are not able to offer it.
Globally, there is only currently one testosterone treatment that is licensed for use in women: AndroFeme®1. This can be hard to get prescribed but may be available via private prescription in the UK.
