We’ve gone into the benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women, but there are also Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men, that can help restore their testosterone levels. Men might not know everything there is to know about testosterone, but they know they want it. After all, testosterone is what makes men, men, right? But those raging hormones that held your body hostage from the time puberty attacked… that racked your body with desire…simply don’t stay that way. Regrettably, it’s part of the aging process. “Aging”, who likes to even hear that word? As men get older, the level of testosterone in their bodies start to decrease. This decline is often referred to as “male menopause” or andropause. Andropause doesn’t happen to all men. But it’s estimated that testosterone decreases about 10% every decade after men reach the age of 30. About 20% of men over 60 do experience it. So what does hormone replacement therapy for men do?
As in the case of women and declining levels of estrogen, declining levels of testosterone come with their own physical and psychological symptoms. These include:
- Loss of muscle bulk and strength
- Loss of body hair
- Loss of libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Enlarged or swollen breast tissue (Oh, no…the dreaded man boobs)
- Increased body fat (It might not be beer contributing to that belly)
- Reduced energy
- Mood swings and loss in self-confidence (Mid-life crisis, anyone?)
- Low sperm count
Instead of accepting the often-debilitating consequences of testosterone imbalances caused by age, you can do something about it. (It’s not fate). Hormone replacement therapy for men can address these issues, increasing testosterone levels, relieving stress and anxiety and restoring a feeling of youthfulness and overall well-being.
