  • You have been on a stable dose of oestrogen replacement therapy (ERT) for at least 3 months.
  • Your body mass index is between 18 and 38.

Who is unable to take part in this study?

Unfortunately, if you have a history of a known bone disease or a condition associated with osteoporosis, this study is not the right fit for you.

  • Blood collection and bone density scans at the beginning and end of the trial.

What is the purpose of this study?

This study aims to determine whether testosterone therapy is effective in preventing bone loss and improving sexual function in women with premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) who are taking the standard dose of oestrogen. Join and do your part to help advance breakthroughs in this clinical research.

What is premature ovarian insufficiency?

Almost 4 in every 100 Australian women go through menopause before they reach the age of 40. This loss of ovarian function is called premature ovarian insufficiency (POI).

Women with POI do not produce adequate levels of oestrogen or testosterone needed for good bone health. For this reason, they experience progressive bone loss which increases the risk of osteoporosis and fractures at a young age. Despite adequate estrogen replacement many women with POI also experience sexual dysfunction.
