Q: Does my partner absorb any of my localized hormones?

Whether you're using a cream, tablet, or ring to add localized hormones to your vagina, your partner is not absorbing any—no more than he did when you were producing your own hormones before menopause. You (and he!) can feel perfectly confident about your use of these products, and your intimacy will benefit from the increased comfort you're likely to experience.

I was taking testosterone via a surface gel. My wife was concerned she might get some transferred to her if we had sex. Considering testosterone powers the sex drive in women as it does in men, I thought this would be a GOOD thing.
