In brief: Similar to men
Aside from erectile dysfunction, women can experience the same symptoms of low testosterone as men, eg loss of sex drive (libido), loss of muscle, increase in fat, loss of bone strength (density), depression, cognitive dysfunction, etc.
Currently, we don't have fda approved treatments although off-label use of testosterone has demonstrated remarkable benefits in individuals under close supervision.

In brief: Similar to men
Low testosterone in women can lead to fatigue, inability to increase muscle mass despite exercise, low libido, decrease in concentration/focus, decrease in passion/ambition, as well as worsening of osteopenia/osteoporosis.
Testosterone is an important hormone to replace in women who are good candidates for it.
