Sybil Sage: A Woman Taking Testosterone

Rate This

By:Sybil Sage/DivineCaroline

Hormone replacement therapy was all the rage ... until it wasn’t.

In response to a study, many women switched to alternative remedies with mysterious names like “black cohosh.” After months of suffering with burning mouth syndrome, I was advised by my trusted gynecologist to return to HRT.

A recent test showed my body was producing no testosterone, so we added an extremely low dose to be increased slowly. Though I was pleasant initially when my insurance company failed to reimburse me for the medication, I’ve gotten testy. The pills must be kicking in. I told a friend about it and she expressed concerns. “Aren’t you worried about getting facial hair? Don’t you think you should get a second opinion? What if your voice deepens?”

We were on Cape Cod so I joked, “I’ll move to Provincetown.” I explained that my dosage is being raised slowly.

“But how will you know if it’s too high?” she persisted.

“Don’t worry,” I assured her. “I’ll slow down once I find the remote is in my hand.”
