    I always thought it counter-intuitive that menopausal women are prescribed progesterone and estrogen as part of hormone replacement therapy as a solution to some of the problems of aging such as increased body fat, loss of muscle tone, loss of bone density and declining sex drive. Estrogen is a bonding hormone while testosterone can be seen as the converse, increasing sex drive, replacing fat with muscle, increasing muscle density and so on. Men have higher levels of testosterone and women have less.

    It seems my knowledge was right, according to this linked article. Post menopausal women can be healthier, happier and sexier.
