I just read an article in my local newspaper, and then searched the web for “Intrinsa” to find this:

Testosterone patch (Intrinsa) enhances sex drive in women
Sunday, 29th February 2004
Some of our wives and girlfriends, may be menopausal, leading to several “problems”, including:
low libido, lack of enjoyment, due to soreness and lack of natural lubrication. One of the interesting points of this patch is that trans-dermal testosterone seems to reduce some of the liver and other problems with oral testosterone. I have seen a similar references to trans-dermal estrogen being better “safer” than by the oral route. I asked my wife to ask her gynecologist about adding some testosterone to her trans-dermal HRT cream, any comments from our Medical members?
