Men's Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy in men includes using hormones to address various health conditions caused by hormonal imbalances in the body. 

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a form of hormone therapy that focuses on restoring testosterone levels in men. Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone responsible for various bodily functions. 

At Forever Young, we know how an imbalance in your hormonal level can impact your mental and physical health, ultimately influencing the overall quality of your life.

Our expert team at Forever Young specializes in TRT and provides comprehensive medical care to help you maintain optimal hormone levels. TRT can help improve your mood, energy, libido, and overall health.

We address a variety of health conditions associated with hormonal imbalances.  


Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone. Although it is found in both men and women, men have higher levels. The testicles are the primary producers of testosterone in men. 

Testosterone plays a vital role in the sexual development of men and is essential for various other bodily functions. These include:

  • Sperm production
  • Regulation of libido and sexual function
  • Maintenance of bone density
  • Development of muscle mass and strength
  • Metabolism
  • Production of red blood cells
  • Influence on mood and cognitive function
  • Management of energy levels

Factors Affecting Testosterone Levels

Although testosterone levels naturally decline with age, several physiological and lifestyle factors can cause low testosterone in men. These include: 

  • Age
  • Hormonal disorder 
  • Obesity
  • Certain medications, including glucocorticoids (corticosteroids) or opioids
  • Chronic stress 
  • Depression
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Insufficient sleep and obstructive sleep apnea
  • Smoking

Sometimes, testicular injury and cancer can also affect the testosterone levels in men.  

Medical Conditions Related to Low Testosterone in Men

Severe testosterone deficiency may contribute to the development of several medical conditions. These may include:

  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED): The difficulty in achieving or maintaining an erection can be linked to low testosterone levels in men. 
  • Infertility: Low levels of testosterone can impair sperm production in men’s bodies. 
  • Osteoporosis: Testosterone deficiency can cause osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by weakened bones and an increased risk of fractures. 
  • Metabolic Conditions: Testosterone disorder can increase the risk of metabolic conditions, such as obesity, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and more.

Signs of Hormone Imbalance in Men

Hormones, including testosterone, play essential roles in regulating your body's various physiological processes and functioning. Hormonal imbalance occurs when your body produces too much or too little of a particular hormone. 

Low testosterone levels in your body can adversely impact your overall health. Symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men include:  

How to Test for Hormonal Issues in Men

At Forever Young, we diagnose various hormonal issues and conditions related to hormonal imbalance in men. This involves a combination of:  

  • Medical history assessment
  • Laboratory tests 

Our healthcare provider will comprehensively examine your symptoms, medical history, physical body, and contributing risk factors to determine the possibility of hormonal issues. 

Sometimes, the key symptoms of hormonal imbalance can be associated with other medical conditions as well. Specific hormone tests can help measure the hormone levels in your body. We may also conduct blood tests to assess hormone levels in the blood.  

Testing for Low Testosterone

If, after the assessment of your physical and sexual symptoms, we suspect testosterone deficiency in your body, our team will conduct specific blood tests to measure the levels of testosterone in the bloodstream.   

Tests for checking testosterone levels may include the following.

  • Total testosterone test measures the total amount of testosterone in your blood. It is usually the initial test conducted.
  • Free testosterone test measures the amount of unattached, or free, testosterone in your blood. This test is performed if there is a need for a more detailed assessment.
  • Other hormone tests, such as Luteinizing hormone (LH) and Follicle-Stimulating hormone (FSH). LH and FSH play a role in regulating testosterone production. 

It is important to note that the testosterone levels in the body change throughout the day. Testosterone testing involves:

  • Morning testosterone tests because testosterone levels tend to be highest in the early morning. 
  • Repeat testing of testosterone level if the initial test results are borderline or inconclusive. Our healthcare providers may recommend repeat testing on a different day to confirm the diagnosis.

For an accurate diagnosis, you may be advised to avoid any medications that can affect your testosterone levels. Please speak to your provider about any medication you are currently taking so that testing can be conducted in a safe and efficient manner.

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men helps address the hormonal imbalances and other related issues you may be experiencing. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) involves the administration of testosterone to manage testosterone deficiency or imbalances.

Our expert team at Forever Young specializes in TRT and provides comprehensive medical care to help you maintain optimal hormone levels. 

Hormone therapy in men may address the following hormones:   

  • Testosterone: Low levels of testosterone may lead to tiredness, reduced libido, and mood changes. TRT can help restore the testosterone levels in men. 
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH): FSH helps in sperm production in men. FSH hormone therapy can help to address instances of infertility or low sperm count.
  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH): LH affects testosterone production in men. Abnormal LH levels can impact testosterone production. Optimal LH level can help in some cases of low testosterone.

Benefits of TRT in Men

TRT can help in relieving numerous symptoms associated with low testosterone levels in men, particularly in maintaining optimal sexual health. There are various benefits to TRT, especially as you age and experience a natural decline in testosterone levels. 

Some benefits of TRT in men include: 

  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved libido and sexual function
  • Improved muscle mass and strength
  • Enhanced bone density
  • Reduction in fat mass
  • Improved memory and concentration
  • Better cardiovascular health
  • Improved mood and mental well-being

Types of TRT

Testosterone can be administered using various methods into the body. Our team will choose a method based on your preference, convenience, and health considerations. 

Intramuscular Injections

Testosterone injection is the most common and cost-effective method to administer TRT. These are usually administered into your muscles (usually buttocks or thighs). 

Topical gels and patches 

Testosterone can be absorbed steadily and directly into your bloodstream through patches and gels. You can apply the patches on your skin, usually on the back, abdomen, thighs, or upper arms. 

Testosterone Pellets (Implants)

This method uses small pellets that contain testosterone. Testosterone pellets are implanted every 3 to 6 months in your hip or buttock area and provide a steady release of testosterone over a long time.
