Average vocal pitch decrease linked to testosterone dosing

April 17, 2015

Dose- and concentration-dependent decrease in average vocal pitch was found among women with higher levels of testosterone administration over 24 weeks, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Grace Huang, MD, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Brookline, Massachusetts, and colleagues evaluated 71 women who underwent hysterectomy with or without oophorectomy with total testosterone less than 31 ng/dL and/or free testosterone less than 3.5 pg/mL to determine the dose-dependent effects of testosterone administration on voice changes in this population.
