While most people associate testosterone with men, it's one of the most vital hormones in women, and one of the first hormones that women begin to lose as they enter their 40s. Women approaching midlife are plagued with insomnia, fatigue, depression, forgetfulness, low libido and a general sense of malaise. But Dr Kathy Maupin knows that it doesn't have to be this way. In the process of overcoming her own hormonal imbalance, Dr Maupin has identified a debilitating and largely unknown health condition that is affecting millions of women: testosterone deficiency.

Having adequate hormone levels is critical for practically everything! Hormones support sleep, mood, cognitive function, energy, libido, healthy arteries, and memory while diminished hormone levels can lead to weight gain, osteoporosis (muscle loss), diminished bladder control, and so much more.
Hormones regulate our bodies and run our lives—when they’re in balance we feel great, look beautiful, are fertile and sexual, and enjoy every moment of our existence. When they’re out of balance, whether during adolescence, pregnancy, menopause, or from medication or surgically induced, it can lead to devastating conditions like infertility, postpartum depression, insomnia, weight gain, loss of libido, memory loss, and unnecessary tests and surgeries.
In 1995, Marcia Lawrence was a vibrant and accomplished 49-year-old. An educator, she had written books and hosted TV and radio shows. But one afternoon, without any warning, she descended into a seventeen-day pyschotic hell that changed her life. She found herself tormented by bizarre hallucinations. "Had it not been for a loving rescue by friends, an artful diagnosis, my own perserverance, and an incredible amount of luck, " she says, "I doubt that I would have survived." As Lawrence discovered, she had suffered from estrogen deprivation, a debilitating disease for women who react negatively to the gradual decline of estrogen during the perimenopause-which can begin as early as a woman's mid-thirties-producing symptoms that can range anywhere from occasional hot flashes to debilitating psychiatric illness.
