Q: What is INTRAROSA made from?
A: INTRAROSA is made from prasterone, a synthetic form of a substance your body produces naturally called DHEA. DHEA is important because after menopause it becomes your body’s primary source of sex hormones, but as you age, DHEA decreases.
Like DHEA, INTRAROSA is inactive until your body converts it into sex hormones, specifically androgens and estrogens, which remain within normal postmenopausal ranges.1 The precise way INTRAROSA works is not known. Get more information about INTRAROSA.
Q: Isn’t androgen a male hormone?
A: Although you may think of androgen as the male sex hormone, women's bodies naturally produce androgen as well. Get more information about INTRAROSA.
