Low testosterone vs mood swings

Good day,
I would like to find out if low testosterone in females is in any way a cause for mood swings &  depression or if it even has any affect on mental health??

I dont think this is considered to be a cause of mood swings or depression in women, or even, to a really significant extent, in men. I'm surprised that anyone measured testosterone levels in a woman who was depressed, ad simple treatment with antidepressants usualyl works just fine

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and to reply.

Someone sent me a link to the website " Livestrong"  where it gives all the causes on the body (physical and mental) and depression is one of the symptoms. I have been diagnosed with bipolar some years ago and was on strong treatment for it but have for the last 4 years not been on any antidepressants. I would much rather treat the core problem than the symptom.

It might be worth doing some research on the matter so that not wrongly diagnose with depression and prescribe antidepressants.
