Lowered testosterone levels is a key symptom of the male body’s natural aging process and can one of the most detrimental to overall male vitality. In addition to powering the male sex drive, testosterone helps maintain several processes in the male body including mental focus, physical energy, muscle mass, bone density, and the production of red blood cells.
Symptoms of Andropause
The symptoms of Andropause can be driven by a host of factors. Many factors can contribute to onset of symptoms including physical inactivity, stress, alcohol use, poor diet, and smoking.

At NuMale Medical Center the treatment of choice is Bioidentical Testosterone Replacement Therapy. The term bioidentical means the testosterone used precisely matches the hormone produced in the male body in chemical makeup and molecular structure. Bioidentical Testosterone Replacement Therapy involves the placement of testosterone pellets, less than 5mm in length, under the skin. The pellets slowly dissolve, infusing hormones into the body. This therapy can usually begin the day of the patient’s first visit after their testosterone and estrogen levels have been tested. The procedure is a quick, painless in office procedure with effects that are felt within days and results that last 5-6 months.
