Abstract: Yes, testosterone therapy is effective in improving libido for elderly hypogonadal males (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, based on small randomized controlled trials [RCTs]). Testosterone combined with estrogen can also improve libido for postmenopausal women, but it's not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this purpose (SOR: B, based on small R CTs).
