I call testosterone the “confidence hormone”. With men, it’s usually pretty clear the nice level of confidence that testosterone gives them. What a lot of people don’t realize is that the right level of testosterone also can give women a feeling of self-confidence. In the right amount, meaning not too much or too little, testosterone can enhance your libido, ability to reach orgasm, energy level, muscle tone, mental clarity, and overall sense of well-being. Too much can cause crankiness (“short fuse”), acne or facial hair growth. Too little can also cause crankiness, as well as not having the good things listed above.
