Low Testosterone (Low-T) FAQs
Question: Testosterone is a chemical found only in men. True or False?
Answer: False. Testosterone is a steroid hormone which is made in the testes in males and in the ovaries in women (a minimal amount is also made in the adrenal glands).
Question: Menopause is responsible for low testosterone in women. True or False?
Answer: False. Menopause itself does not seem to play a role in a reduction of testosterone levels in women. With advancing age, in both men and women, the body produces decreasing amounts of testosterone over time.
