From the Inside Flap
This is the book you've been hearing about! Dr. Susan Rako has brought her groundbreaking message about the miraculous benefits of testosterone--the female hormone--to women and physicians around the world via Oprah!, Dateline NBC, the New York Times, the Congress on Women's Health, and the Today show, among others.
Dr. Rako is at the forefront of the research into testosterone replacement therapy, educating women and their doctors about the essential role testosterone plays in a woman's sexual and physical well-being.
Millions of women experience a traumatic loss of sexual desire during menopause. Dr. Rako's breakthrough research has brought to light the fact that the female body produces significant amounts of testosterone that are crucial to the healthy functioning of every woman's libido--linking decreased testosterone levels at the onset of menopause to diminished sex drive--as well as to the health of her bones and heart.
In this revised and updated edition, Dr. Rako introduces crucial new information that points to the need for adequate levels of testosterone as a key factor in protecting women from heart attack and stroke. The Hormone of Desire has become the standard-bearer for a new age of women's health, giving women and their doctors the opportunity to make informed decisions.
From the Back Cover
Millions of women experience a traumatic loss of sexual desire during menopause. Although estrogen and progesterone alleviate many of the unpleasant effects of menopause, these hormones cannot address flagging sexual desire. Dr. Susan Rako's breakthrough research has brought to light the fact that the female body produces significant amounts of testosterone that are crucial to the healthy functioning of every woman's libido, thus linking decreased testosterone levels at the onset of menopause to diminished sex drive. The Hormone of Desire is the first book to fully reveal the benefits of testosterone supplements for menopausal women and is an invaluable tool for women and their doctors.

Because this book is over 15 years old some of the info is not all that up to date. Bioidentical hormones are widely available now, at least in the USA. My insurance plan covered compounded formulas, so I did not have to fight for what I needed or pay high prices for it as Susan Rako did when she started on her quest for safe, effective relief from change of life symptoms. I am sure grateful for all her research and encouragement to find a doctor who will listen and help with an individualized plan, not just a cookie-cutter approach.
Finally, I had my hubby read a couple of the chapters and then we were able to have a frank discussion about menopause issues that all women face. Anything that contributes to good communication between partners is a good thing!
a few months. I am now at 4mg/day. Thank you Dr. Rako for writing this book.
Factual, educational, helpful.
