As the ovary fails, it continues to produce testosterone and perhaps in increased amounts for a variable number of years. This is the so called continuation of ovarian function postmenopausally. i.e. progressive androgenisation! February 29, 2020 Dr. Robert A. Jones 5 With the introduction of HRT (oestrogen only or ERT), testosterone status falls to zero. This is due to two factors
cessation of production from the ovary by suppression of LH binding of testosterone by SHBG February 29, 2020 Dr. Robert A. Jones 6 It follows therefore, that any woman taking oestrogen or producing excess oestrogens is relatively or absolutely testosterone deficient e.g. February 29, 2020

My data is currently under continuing biostatistical analysis with

It would appear then that the survival from the diagnosis breast cancer did not differ from that of the South Australian population at large of whom 44.3% were taking oestrogens but may be shown to be reduced to statistical February 29, 2020 Dr.
