Exclamation 22 years old. Low libido. Prescribed testosterone cream.

Hello All,

I am 22 years old, have been on BC pills (currently on Necon) since I was a teenager for health reasons. Within the past two years I have experienced very low libido and sex drive. I am happily married to my best friend, who is very patient with my low sexual desires. We communicate about my lack of sex drive. Yesterday I went to my GYN and she prescribed me a 2% testosterone cream compound. I have never had any blood test done to even know if I have low testosterone (although, it does run in the family) She also switched my BC pill to Sprintec.

I am concerned to use the cream due to all the negative side effects. She told me to squeeze the cream the half size of a green pea and rub it on my clitoris. SHould I use it if I don't know my levels?

I would definitely recommend having blood work done to ensure that it is in fact low levels of testosterone and not something else. If you are questioning using it, then don't use it until you know for sure!
