Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
(BHRT) for Men

Too many men think that hormone shifts, drops, and imbalances don’t happen to them – that’s just something that middle-aged women go through. It’s not something they think they have to worry about.  

But they’re wrong.  

Men also experience declining hormone levels as they age. It’s natural, but it can cause serious health issues and a decline in your quality of life. And it’s not something you have to just live with anymore. Bioidentical hormone replacement (BHRT) can give you more energy, more muscle mass, more strength, faster weight loss, and a revitalized libido and sexual function.  

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men

Hormone imbalance in men can happen at any time of life, but it’s most common at middle-age as testosterone levels begin to decline rapidly. Other hormones can cause issues, but testosterone levels have the biggest impact on men’s health and quality of life. This middle-aged stage is often called andropause, or “male menopause.”  

Men who are dealing with hormonal imbalance may experience one or more of these symptoms:   

  • Weight gain 
  • Muscle loss 
  • Difficulty sleeping 
  • Fatigue  
  • Low libido 
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Depression

These symptoms are too often dismissed as the result of stress, but it’s most commonly an issue of lowered testosterone. If you’re experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you may benefit from advanced lab tests that can give you a complete picture of the issues and help you find a solution.  

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – or BHRT for short – is a method of treating hormone imbalances that has gained popularity in the last few decades, though the technology dates back nearly a century. It helps men and women regain hormonal balance through treatment with hormones that are identical in structure to the hormones your body produces naturally. The hormones used for treatment are also derived from natural sources – like yams – and can lead to fewer side effects and risks than traditional hormone replacement therapy.  

BHRT can come in many forms, so it’s easy to pick the method that works best for your lifestyle and your body with guidance from an experienced medical professional. You may be prescribed BHRT that comes in the form of:   

  • Injections 
  • Creams 
  • Pills 
  • Patches 
  • Gels 

BHRT is a safe, reliable and well-studied form of hormone therapy for men.  

Hormone Replacement Therapy Benefits for Men

Bioidentical hormones are made to exactly match the molecular structure of hormones present in your body. These hormones bind to your body’s hormone receptors in the exact same way as the hormones produced naturally by your body. The dosage can be more tailored to each individual to achieve optimal levels.  

The benefits of BHRT are many – it offers both better quality of life and improved health with the right treatment plan. Men who have undergone BHRT report benefits including: 

  • Reduced body fat
  • Weight loss 
  • Increased energy 
  • Lower anxiety  
  • Increased muscle mass and strength 
  • Boosted sexual performance and desire

BHRT for Men | Male Menopause (Andropause) / Low T

Many men experience a condition similar to menopause called andropause, though it may begin at a much younger age than menopause in women. If you’re noticing any potential symptoms of hormone imbalance after age 30, it’s likely that you now need to take action.  

With increased awareness surrounding this common condition, the popularity of male hormone replacement and testosterone therapy has grown rapidly in recent times. As the testosterone levels in the body decrease, there are many functions that start to decline. These conditions are not limited to sex drive and erections. Low testosterone can have a direct impact on mood, energy, blood sugar, and sleep, as well as a host of other issues. Thus, optimizing testosterone levels is a very advantageous way to enhance your overall health.
