In a woman’s life, there are key moments when her hormones change: puberty, pregnancy, post-partum, perimenopause, and menopause. In these situations, it’s important for those around her to be supportive and understanding as well as give her treatment she needs to feel her best again.  

Men’s hormones are much more stable after puberty, right? They, in fact, can shift in their lifetime! When a man gets older than 40, his testosterone slowly drops over time, bringing about his own hormonal changes. In this case, he too needs treatment to feel his best.

Keep reading to learn what role testosterone plays for men, how treatment can help, and other information about this therapy.

Why Testosterone Matters for Men

Although both women and men need a certain amount of the testosterone hormone, men are especially affected by low levels. In addition to maintaining muscle mass, testosterone controls sex drive, energy, bone density, and red blood cell production. Another lesser-known impact of testosterone is on cognitive function in men.

As a result, when testosterone levels start to decline, a man can experience more fatigue, weight gain, mood changes, loss in muscle mass, as well as lower libido and erectile dysfunction.

How Testosterone Treatment Can Help Aging Men

In men who experience lower than optimal testosterone levels, replacement therapy can bring back a more youthful amount of energy, sex drive, and body shape, which can not only help men feel better about themselves but also help strengthen their intimate relationships. With more efficient muscle mass, men can also keep a healthier weight, just as they did when they were younger.

With greater bone density, aging men can also prevent potential fractures and other common injuries as they get older. In addition, having optimal testosterone levels can help men retain better cognitive abilities, memory, and attention.

What You Should Know about Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Before you can start testosterone replacement therapy, your blood must be tested to see where your hormone levels are currently. Based on the results and your needs, you may receive testosterone supplements via injections, pellets under the skin, patches, or gels. Throughout treatment, you’ll be monitored to make sure the appropriate dosage. Something to keep in mind about replacement therapy is that it will not prevent your hair from going gray, wrinkles from setting in, or other signs of aging, but it can help you feel more like yourself as you get older.

Ultimately, dropping hormones may be a natural part of the aging process, but it doesn’t have to rob you of enjoying your twilight years. As the years pass, you can keep your vitality through testosterone replacement therapy.
