What is testosterone therapy?
Testosterone therapy is a treatment that increases low levels of testosterone. A hormone imbalance often causes unpleasant symptoms that diminish your quality of life and negatively affect your sex life. Testosterone therapy is a simple treatment that can drastically improve the way your body looks, feels, and functions.
What are the symptoms of low testosterone?
Low testosterone is a common condition among men, especially with older age. Signs and symptoms associated with it include:
- Unplanned weight gain
- Lean muscle mass loss
- Decreased strength
- Increases in body fat
- Loss of sexual desire
- Irritability or moodiness
- Thinning hair
If you experience these symptoms and suspect you have low testosterone, see the Ovation Wellness team for an evaluation.
Am I a good candidate for testosterone therapy?
To find out if you’re a good candidate for testosterone therapy, your provider reviews your medical history and asks about symptoms you experience. They also complete a physical examination and have you undergo a blood test to check testosterone levels and other hormones in your body to develop a treatment plan.
Testosterone therapy can improve your sex life, give you more energy, and help you build and maintain muscle mass. It also helps reduce unwelcome signs of aging, such as thinning hair.
What should I expect during testosterone therapy?
Numerous forms of testosterone therapy are available at Ovation Wellness. Examples include:
- Intramuscular injections
- Bioidentical hormone pellets
Bioidentical hormones are identical in structure to the hormones your body naturally produces. During hormone pellet implantation, your provider numbs the treatment area near your upper buttocks. They make a tiny incision and insert a pellet just under your skin before closing the incision.
The pellet remains beneath the skin, slowly releasing testosterone into your bloodstream over time to keep your levels within a normal, healthy range. After several months, your provider can replace the pellet with a new one.
Which type of testosterone therapy is right for me?
The highly-trained team at Ovation Wellness personalizes each testosterone therapy treatment to best match your needs, lifestyle, and preferences. They monitor your hormone levels periodically to ensure each treatment works the way it’s designed to and can make changes to your regimen as needed to help you achieve the best outcome.
