Andropause Symptoms in Men

What are some of andropause’s earliest signs and symptoms? Do not bear the burden of the discomfort associated with andropause any longer. With BioTE® Medical, we have alternatives to suffering. Keep reading for information about andropause therapy, and to learn about your options for treating hormone imbalance.

What Is Andropause?

Similar to when a woman’s ovaries stop the production of hormones, andropause is when a man’s testosterone levels decrease. Hormonal imbalance in men can be brought on by andropause.

How Does Andropause Present in Men?

Even the most common andropause symptoms are a burden to bear. These symptoms include hot flashes, erectile dysfunction, and sleep disturbances. Anxiety and depression, which are often intolerable and tremendously reduce quality of life, are also triggered by andropause.

What Are the Phases of Andropause?

There are three phases of andropause including periandropause, andropause, and postandropause. Periandropause symptoms, when compared to the ones of andropause and postandropause, are often more difficult to deal with.

What Is BHRT?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, is a way for men to recuperate the energy of their youth with natural hormones that replace those lost during andropause. Instead of traditional hormone replacement therapy that uses synthetic hormones derived from animals such as the pregnant horse urine used in commonly prescribed Premarin, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a natural procedure using plant-derived hormones that most closely resemble naturally occurring human hormones. Unlike the FDA approved replacement hormones prescribed by practitioners, these hormones do not contain chemicals.

What Is BHRT Pellet Therapy?

BHRT pellet therapy from BioTE Medical is based on bio-identical hormones taken from plants. After determining your individual needs by a series of saliva tests, serum tests, and blood tests, pellets are built to fit you.

What Is the Process of BHRT Pellet Insertion Like?

The BHRT pellet insertion procedure is designed with you in mind, to be as comfortable and pain-free as possible. Your BioTE Medical provider will run a full panel of tests. Following your tests, your practitioner will customize your pellet therapy for you and isolate an area on your hip for insertion. A pellet is inserted into a tiny incision and covered with a band-aid.

How Can BHRT Help With Andropause?

BHRT pellets provide constant doses through the course of the day, rather than pills or other methods of hormonal administration that offer less consistent doses than BHRT. Get relief from the extreme effects of hormones with less regular administration. Learn more about how BHRT pellets can help you, today! Find a BioTE Medical Provider near you!
