The vast majority are undiagnosed. Men’s testosterone levels start declining after about age 30, and sometimes sooner. This is due to a variety of factors, including diet and lifestyle, as well as aging and even toxins in our environment. Common symptoms include:
🔻 Low Energy
🔻Low Sex Drive
🔻Reduced Muscle Mass
🔻Loss of Strength
The good news is, this condition is treatable! By optimizing your testosterone level and addressing underlying health conditions, you can get back the energy and vitality you once had.
Better mood and greater motivation
Start losing weight and increasing muscle mass. Experience improved sex drive and erection quality.
Our testosterone is “bioidentical.” That means that on a molecular/chemical level, it is exactly the same as the testosterone your body naturally produces. It comes in different forms, and you can choose whichever one feels right for you!
Injection: The most popular option and virtually pain-free (believe it or not!). You can inject testosterone in a fatty area (“subcutaneously”) or in a muscle (“intramuscularly”). It works the same, but subcutaneous injections are less painful. Just a short, thin needle, usually twice a week. We’ll walk you through your first injection in the clinic or on a video call, whichever you prefer. Pros: simple, easy, effective Cons: involves needles
Cream: Testosterone cream is just as effective, so if you just hate needles, this could be a good option for you! It is applied to the scrotum or the top of the foot (both areas have thin skin) twice daily. This option is particularly good for increasing libido. Pros: painless, effective, easy to apply Cons: can be messy, have to wait 2-3 hours before working out, must be careful not to transfer to a partner.
Troches: These are mint- or fruit-flavored lozenges that you dissolve in your mouth 3-4 times per day. Pros: tasty, painless, easy Cons: not as effective, have to do it multiple times per day
Nasal Gel: Just what it sounds like. Comes in a twist pen. Pros: simple, painless, easy Cons: less effective, must apply 3 times per day
You’ll start out by getting lab work done and having your initial consultation with your healthcare provider to go over the results and decide if testosterone replacement therapy is right for you. If so, you will have lab work every 2-3 months until your levels are optimized, then every 6 months thereafter.
You can contact your provider any time by phone, email, or text with any questions or concerns. Follow-up visits are done as needed by phone, video, or in person.
Initial Consultation: $100
We’ll go over your lab results in detail, discuss your health history and current concerns, and make a plan to optimize your health and help you feel like yourself again.
Comprehensive Lab Panel: $199
Looks at your levels of testosterone and related hormones, plus your overall health.
You are welcome to use your insurance for lab work instead, but we cannot guarantee what will be covered or what the cost to you will be.
Tadalafil is super convenient. It is taken once daily and works whenever you need it to. Because it increases blood flow throughout the body (including muscles), it is also an effective pre-workout supplement. Many men find they can lift more and work out for longer after taking tadalafil. Tadalafil has also been shown to decrease inflammation, which is great for your health in general. In addition to reducing aches and pains, it may even help prevent atherosclerosis and prostate enlargement.
Sildenafil works much the same way as tadalafil, but without some of the extra benefits. It is typically very effective in helping men achieve a stronger, longer-lasting erection. It is taken about an hour before sexual activity and can have an effect for 4-6 hours.
Medications are also available to help prevent hair loss, acne, and other concerns.
