Weight training .: If you don't have any medical conditions or contraindication to exercise lift weights .I would recommend you start weight training program under supervision and pay attention to your diet by eating more protein. Don't be sleep deprived and don't drink alcohol as studies suggest alcohol decreases your testosterone levels. These are some natural ways to boost your testosterone level.

DHEA: Dhea converts very well to testosterone in women. Also, eating animal fat helps as cholesterol is a building block of all steroid hormones. Dhea and testosterone levels should be monitored by your doctor.
