Normal Testosterone and Estrogen Levels in Women

Normal Testosterone and Estrogen Levels in Women

It is vital to keep normal testosterone levels in women and at the same time, to keep normal estrogen levels in women as well. These two hormones are particularly important to keep balanced in the body for good physical, emotional, mental and sexual health, strength and vibrancy. As females age, their hormone levels deplete. This is a natural act of nature that cannot be stopped.

Although decreasing hormones cannot be stopped as a woman gets older, the symptoms of low testosterone and the symptoms of low estrogen levels in females can be stopped and controlled. How? Hormones can be restored and balanced with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and with estrogen replacement therapy (ERT).

Our doctors are well trained and licensed in this field of medicine and know how to get people healthy with normal testosterone levels for females and males. When the proper testing is done and blood work is being analyzed by our physicians, they will know the correct prescription to write for a smooth and successful TRT or ERT experience.

High, Normal And Low Testosterone Levels In Females

Here is an easy to read chart that shares what testosterone levels in women should look like. It is important to keep in mind that these numbers are just reference ranges. Each clinic will establish their own scales that will be slightly different from each other. This is in part due to calibration errors with equipment or the different kinds of people that get their hormone levels tested at a particular clinic.

What is a normal testosterone level in females? A normal range of testosterone levels for a woman is considered to be between a reference point that is determined by each individual clinic.

Normal testosterone levels in women look like this:

  • Over 30 years old is anything between 15 – 70 ng/dL
  • Over 40 years old is anything between 12.75 – 63.75 ng/dL
  • Over 50 years old is anything between 10.8 – 54.19 ng/dL
  • Over 60 years old is anything between 9.21 – 46.06 ng/dL

Some women may fall on the lower end and feel symptoms and others may fall at the higher end and feel symptoms. Understanding that each woman is different and even when a number on a scale says “too low” or “too high,” it is still up to the licensed doctor in charge and the patient to determine if treatment will be helpful.

High, Normal And Low Estrogen Levels In Females

Estrogen levels for females should be within a “normal” range (according to the clinic they attend) in order for them to look and feel their best. However, there is no real “normal” amount as all women are different. The best traditional medicine can do is to come up with a reference range and that range is often between 40 to 50 picograms per milliliter.

As most people know, estrogen is the key hormone for the female body, keeping it strong, vital and alive. Without the right amounts of estrogen flowing through the female system, ailments will occur that can greatly affect how a woman looks and feels.

Read below to see where estrogen levels for women should be during:

  • Menstruation
  • Ovulation
  • Pregnancy
  • Post-menopause

The estrogen hormone amount will fluctuate within the female body during menstruation, when it will be closer to about 45 pg/mL. During ovulation, estrogen levels can rise to about 400 pg/mL, but this will only be temporary.

When a woman is pregnant, estrogen levels have been seen to boost as high as 100 times more than normal. Throughout the pregnancy, estrogen levels will fluctuate too. The reason is to create the right amount of blood flow to the uterus. It will also stimulate lactation after pregnancy is finished. After pregnancy, estrogen levels hit their normal level again.

The estrogen levels in women who are post menopausal can drop to as low as 10 to 20pg/mL. This is when the female will start to feel symptoms that can tremendously affect her quality of life. For the good of bone health and to avoid osteoporosis, night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and more, it is necessary to keep estrogen levels around the 40 to 50pg/mL. The best way to do this is with estrogen replacement therapy.
