Reproductive hormones modestly linked to sexual function during menopause

November 20, 2014

Modest significant associations were observed between reproductive hormones and sexual function in women during menopause, according to research published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

The positive association with testosterone supports the role of androgens in female sexual function, whereas the negative association with follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) supports the role of menopausal status, the researchers said.
