Thanks Aliciadarling (what a great name!)
I haven’t actually started it yet. I’ve got to iron out a few other health problems first.
I’m having testosterone measured next week. Had potassium tested last week for an unrelated problem.
Yep, I learnt about women producing testosterone (why they call it a ‘male’ hormone is beyond me) when I first sought medical help for low libido. It turns out the contraceptive pill I’d been on for over a decade had reduced my testosterone production to negligible levels. I stopped taking it and things improved. They’ve worsened again recently so I don’t want to add to my woes with any other drug.
Interesting about the potassium - I’m on potassium supplements already but unfortunately they’re too important(for other health reasons) to stop.
I think, after what you’ve written, I might just wait until I can see my endocrinologist again and get more info.
