Andropause Q & A

What is andropause?

Andropause, commonly referred to as male menopause, occurs due to decreased testosterone levels that commonly appear with aging. While male hormone decline is usually more gradual than in women, it can cause troublesome and long-lasting symptoms when not addressed.

Dr. Hormone MD offers highly effective hormone treatments that restore your energy, muscle mass, sex drive, and overall quality of life.

What are the symptoms of andropause?

The hallmark symptoms of andropause, or low testosterone, in men include:

  • Reduced energy
  • Increased body fat
  • Weight gain
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Low libido (sex drive)
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Thinning hair
  • Skin changes
  • Reduced bone density
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Reduced bone mass
  • Foggy thinking

Andropause symptoms can negatively affect your self-confidence, appearance, mood, and lifestyle when not treated.

Do I have andropause?

To determine if you have andropause, a Dr. Hormone MD specialist discusses your symptoms and medical history. They complete a physical exam, check your vital signs, and order blood tests to evaluate current testosterone and other hormone levels. Then, they tailor a personalized hormone replacement therapy plan to diminish symptoms of low testosterone.

What happens during andropause treatment?

Common andropause treatments include:

Lifestyle changes.

Adopting healthy habits is a natural way to optimize testosterone levels throughout the aging process. Examples include eating nutritious foods, not smoking, avoiding excessive alcohol, minimizing stress, exercising regularly, and getting high-quality sleep. Seek treatment for depression, anxiety, or other common mental health challenges that may develop.
Hormone replacement therapy

Dr. Hormone MD offers Pellecome™ hormone replacement therapy to increase testosterone levels and eliminate unpleasant symptoms. You might receive pellets placed under your skin every 3-4 months or injections, creams, gels, or oral troches.

What can I expect after beginning andropause treatment?

During the next few weeks and months, you can expect to feel better with fewer andropause symptoms.

Your Dr. Hormone MD provider follows up with you regularly to ensure your hormones stay within an ideal range and alters your treatment whenever needed. After an initial consultation, you might choose telehealth visits for many of your follow-up appointments.

Don't hesitate to call the office any time with questions.
