For women, this sex hormone plays a key role in the sensitivity to sex.  From a behavioral standpoint, women are more affected by a decrease in testosterone levels.

In women, testosterone primarily defines the development and maintenance of female sex characteristics. The levels of testosterone vary in women according to their age. After the onset of puberty, the level of testosterone is nearly70 ng/dL and drops down to 40ng/dL after menopause. However, the normal level of testosterone increases four times during pregnancy. A reduction in the natural secretion affects sexual health adversely.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone in Women

Clinical studies point out that a woman's sexual health is greatly affected by low testosterone levels. The hormone level is directly linked to a woman’s libido.
