This global consensus position statement on the use of testosterone therapy in women was developed by participating organisations to inform healthcare professionals of the known benefits and potential risks of testosterone therapy for women. The aims of the statement are:
- to provide clear guidance on which women might benefit from testosterone therapy
- to identify symptoms, signs, and conditions for which evidence does not support the prescribing of testosterone
- to explore areas of uncertainty
- to identify any prescribing practices that have the potential to cause harm.
