Low testosterone impacts about 2 in every 100 American men, which can cause a loss in muscle mass, energy, and sex drive. When you’re in your late teens, your testosterone levels tend to be at their highest level, which increases your libido. As you age, your levels begin to slowly decline.
If you’re looking to reboot your sex drive, come in to see us at Tru-Male Medical in Oak Brook, Illinois. We can help you with what can be a frustrating issue. Dr. Robert Marshall and our expert team specialize in men’s sexual health and hormones. With our training and experience, we recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy therapy to help remedy your low libido so you can feel like yourself again.
Bioidentical hormones explained
As you age, your hormone levels drop, which can affect many functions in your body, including your sex drive.
If you have low testosterone, we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which is safe and FDA-approved. Bioidentical hormones are man-made and plant-based. They can be tailored to the unique makeup of your body, mimicking your natural hormones to bring back balance.
When you come to our practice, we talk to you about the many benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Your consultation includes time spent answering your questions and explaining how it works.
During your exam, we also evaluate your hormone levels and determine the best treatment and dosage option for you.
If you’re a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, we provide you with various methods of treatment, including:
- Implanted pellets
If you try one method and decide you’d like to experience a different one, we can make adjustments until you find the method you like best. We also give you a prescribed dosage to meet your individual needs and lessen or cure your symptoms.
When you’re on hormone treatment, we closely monitor your hormone levels with routine urine, blood, and saliva checks to make sure your body operates at its peak.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy not only reboots your sex drive, but it also offers additional benefits that include:
- Reducing depression
- Boosting your mood
- Reducing your LDL (bad) cholesterol
- Improving your HDL (good) cholesterol
- Relieving joint pain
- Helping with weight loss
- Reducing insomnia
- Improving your immune system
Our team can help you with unwanted symptoms you might experience from low testosterone. You can feel confident in our care for you.
