Ok. This may not make too muh sense. But I'll do my best.
Ive been working out and changing my diet...limiting cardio to 5-10 min a day, and doing alot more resistance training (about 4-5 days a week) and seeing great results (Thanks Guejsn!) Recently my boyfriend who has been helping me out with my resistance training started taking Tribex. He said it was a testosterone booster and doubled as a fat burner, and hes not fat by any means, but what little bit of fat he does have is being burnt off fast by this stuff. So I was wondering.. Is there anything like tribex on the market for females that actually works?

Tribex is primarily Tribulus Terrestris. Tribulus Terrestris has not been shown to increase endogenous androgen production (which would aid in muscle accretion and fat loss) in either males OR females (Saudan, Baume, Emery, Strahm & Saugy, 2008).
Testosterone boosters do not necessarily double as fat burners. If one is losing fat using one, then it is because they are potentially gaining more muscle mass, or their diet is targeted that way, or (if a male) because of the higher testosterone levels (if it is FREE Testosterone). Females won't necessarily gain muscle or lose fat any faster by increasing testosterone levels (I actually just finished writin an article on this very topic).
As for there being "anything like Tribex on the market for females"; females CAN use Tribex.
If you're looking for something that can aid in recomping (which is what gaining muscle and losing fat simultaneously is), then look into a GH/testosterone booster, such as IGF-2 (I gained muscle and lost fat on this product, and it keeps me relatively lean, which says something, considering I easily eat ~4000 cal/day)! GH is actually what determines the rate at which a female gains muscle or loses fat (Kraemer & Ratamess, 2005); and although there is no evidence to prove that increasing testosterone in females does anything re results, there is no harm in trying to create the most anabolic environment possible.
However, really, most of it is in your DIET (I cannot stress that enough)!!!

As a natural health consultant I preach to clients lifestyles, nutrition, exercise, stress management and having a sound mind will over ride any drug out there to some extent. I help people heal by finding the biological imbalance. Once these imbalnaces are found simple using the power of the mind and mother nature does wonders in majority of cases.I am not a medical Dr, please keep in mind that this answer is for information purposes only, and is not intended to diagnose, treat or replace sound medical advice from your physician or health care provider.

Losing "weight in the belly area" is easy enough, and is primarily reliant on diet; don't blame hormones (or something else)!
However, there is no need to cycle such products (this is preference), and it really depends on the individual. Using a testosterone booster is NOT going to cause depression, etc., as you describe, if not cycled.

This may not have any merit, but before I started taking test boosters of any kind, I raised my test level by eating broccoli. Lots of broccoli and I subbed this for other carbs in my diet and w/that raised, I moved to the test booster and had good results. These kinds of things require a lot of time and patience. You're not like a Mogwai, you can't spill water on yourself and watch your body change in seconds.
