So, I wanted to try and clear the air as best as possible about two big things that sometimes go together, women and testosterone. Now, before I began taking anything to raise my testosterone, I thought that it would make look like a man and start growing facial hair everywhere. Sadly, I think that this is a big misconception around certain circles of people but it does not mean that they are wrong.
See, it all depends on how much of it you take or are prescribed to take. If your goal is to have male features and you take enough testosterone for that to happen, it will. If you are a woman who wants to have more strength and not turn into a man over time as far as hair and voice is concerned, this can be done safely as well.
As with any substances, certain people are going to learn the right amount for them. Too much of almost any substance in the world can give you adverse side effects. It really all about knowing two things: what you want to achieve and how much or less of something it will take to give you those results.
The main thing that you need to be doing if you are really looking to take testosterone as a woman would be to please consult a medical professional. This can be really dangerous stuff if you just go into taking it blindly. You need to have an appointment with a proper doctor who can help find you what you need in relation to your goals.
Doctors all around hear and see so much in their lives, do not be embarrassed or ashamed to seek professional medical help. It is the smartest thing you will do in this whole process and you will save so much time being on the right track right away.
I hope that this has helped to clear up some common misconceptions about women and testosterone.
