Hello and I see you are in Israel.
Let me ask you - why are you asking for testosterone - do you mean Estrogen instead?
What is the reason for the testosterone?
And, are you going to keep your uterus too?
are you there?
Hi, here is a dosing schedule for you ...
testosterone 150 μg/day patch applied twice/week
In addition, you might also consider removing the uterus too so that you can SAFELY use Estrogen too - as the Estrogen will compliment the testosterone
The Testosterone is for sexual libido and sexual desire
While the Estrogen is for the tissue response and feeling
I hope this helps

Hi, I have my uterus and ovaries and have never taken any hormones during menopause other than soy extract capsules. However I am going to have an oophorectomy done in 2 weeks because of a complex ovarian cyst on my left ovary and the need to biopsy it. I know that the ovaries at this stage are important for production of testosterone - steady for life - and loss of my ovaries can lead to tiredness, loss of lebido etc, so I thought that it would be a good idea to use transdermal testosterone low dose.
That is correct
and YES low dose testosterone is good - but also USING a bioidentical estradiol too transdermal patch would be very helpful too
I wish you well
and the dosing I have given you should work

So my question is what dose of testosterone to use? My gyne does not believe it is necessary, but I am a young, very fit, sexually active 62 year old and don't want my life to be down hill from here on in because of hormonal imbalance.
I wrote it above - did you not see it
What dose is low dose?
Here it is again:
PUT it this way - you want to use a dose that MAKES YOU feel good - so this is not something that has to do with TOO low of a dose.
oh okay I see 150mch/day patch
BUT TOO HIGH of a dose can cause problems such as deepening your voice and increasing risk of a heart attach
so you do NOT want to use too much testosterone
I am aware of that. It's just to make me feel good
