Incontinence in Women May Be Linked To Low Testosterone Levels

Incontinence affects millions of American women and can be a difficult thing to grasp for many.

Did you know that incontinence in women may actually be linked to low testosterone levels? When we hear the phrase ‘low testosterone’, our minds tend to lean toward males but women have testosterone as well that is vital to the regular functioning of the body. Low testosterone levels in women can have adverse effects on the body, aside from incontinence such as low energy, increased urine leakage, and fluctuating hormone levels.

In a study that was conducted by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey that consisted of 2123 females, it was discovered that women in the lowest quartile of testosterone level had 48% increased odds of stress incontinence and 65% increased odds of mixed incontinence compared with women not in the lowest quartile (Source).

Testosterone In Women Is Normal

Women require a small amount of testosterone in order for their bodily functions to work smoothly and at a normal rate. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, normal testosterone measurements range from 15 to 70 ng/dL (Source). When this number is lower, the side effects of incontinence and other medical issues become more apparent.

The Effects of Low Testosterone in Women

Beginning in the mid 40’s, women’s testosterone levels naturally begin to decline and is usually nothing to worry about. Levels of testosterone that are too low, though, can result in more serious medical conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), heart complications, and breast cancer. Urinary incontinence during menopause and thereafter is a concern of many in this age group.

Women with lower levels of testosterone also tend to suffer from health issues such as:

• Varied hormone levels
• Reduced energy levels
• Lowered sex drive
• Compromised bone health
• Lowered pain tolerance

Normal testosterone levels in women aid in:

• Relief of menopausal symptoms
• A Higher libido
• Prevention of breast cancer
• Prevention of heart disease

The best way to address and establish low estrogen and/or testosterone levels is to visit your doctor who will give you a proper diagnosis. Through blood tests and various examinations, estrogen and testosterone levels can be better managed and remedied.
