Game Changer

Similar to women, men also experience a decline in hormones as they age. Testosterone, the dominant male hormone, declines at a rate of 1% a year after the age of 30. This decline is termed hypogonadism or andropause. Andropause onset is more subtle than its female comparison menopause, however, its effects are significant and affect the way you look and feel. Low testosterone symptoms include; 

  • Lack of motivation

  • Depression

  • Low libido

  • Fatigue

  • Lack of spontaneous erections and morning erections

  • Erectile dysfunction (softer erections)

  • Loss of muscle mass

  • Increase abdominal fat

  • Trouble concentrating

  • loss of body hair

  • Insomnia

  • Increased recovery time after a workout

What is testosterone replacement therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a hormone supplementation that can restore your testosterone levels and give you back the motivation and drive to live your best life. There are many forms of TRT that can be used depending on your preference and lifestyle. Options are cream, injections, and pellet therapy which is the mainstay of TRT today. 

What is testosterone pellet therapy?

Testosterone pellet therapy is when your provider implants small rice-sized pellets into the subcutaneous fat on the hip/buttocks, where they gradually dissolve over the next five to six months. There is minimal downtime after the procedure and pellet therapy allows you to go about your life without worrying about how much cream to apply or what day to give your injection.  

Once the pellets dissolve, you can return to Harmony HealthSpan for a new evaluation to make any necessary changes to your personalized pellet dose and treatment plan if needed. 

Testosterone replacement therapy with pellets takes about 7-10 days to take effect, and you may experience noticeable results after two to four weeks. Most patients notice significant improvements in the way they look and feel after the first six months of treatment.

If you are experiencing low testosterone symptoms and testosterone replacement therapy sounds right for you or if you would like to know more about it, call Harmony HealthSpan or request an online appointment with a provider today.
