Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Male Hormone Replacement is a type of therapy that can restore a man’s health testosterone levels. Known as TRT for short (Testosterone Replacement Therapy), it helps men struggling with low hormone levels, as confirmed by a lab panel. Essentially, if the body lacks testosterone production,  it must be replaced with a new exogenous source of the hormone. Hypogonadism is a condition in which a man cannot produce enough testosterone naturally. Testosterone is the primary essential hormone for men.

What Causes Hypogonadism in Men?

The most common cause of male Hypogonadism starts in the testes, where ultimately the sex gland cannot output the right amount of the hormone. Other less common causes may include issues with a man’s pituitary gland or hypothalamus. To learn the underlying cause of Hypogonadism, it’s essential to speak with your doctor.

Male Hormone Replacement is often administered via a prescribed injection, with the function of resorting testosterone back to normal levels. Some treatments may also come in cream or patch form (these types of treatments are absorbed through the skin). TRT for men experiencing lower than normal levels of testosterone can result in health benefits such as:

  • Improved Energy
  • Enhanced Libido
  • Increased Sleep Quality
  • Healthier Bones and Joints
  • Efficient Muscle Growth
  • Heighten Concentration

Contrary to common belief, increasing numbers of males in the U.S. are experiencing low testosterone or Hypogonadism. Modern studies show that a man’s testosterone levels may continue to decrease each year starting at 30, by as much as 2%. Other sources suggest that over a third of males over 45 show signs of testosterone deficiency. Our men’s health doctors at Alpha Male Plastic Surgery are well-educated on safely and effectively prescribing testosterone replacement treatment.

While most patients who experience low testosterone will typically be over the age of 50, adult men of all ages can struggle with low T levels. If you believe you are experience symptoms of testosterone deficiency, it’s essential that you speak with your doctor. Some of the possible signs of low testosterone in men:

  • Depression
  • Infertility
  • Excess Body Fat
  • Loss of Muscle Mass
  • Decreased Libido
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Inability to Concentrate

Ejaculatory Dysfunction

Ejaculatory dysfunction is a condition in which a man cannot correctly ejaculate his semen. This often means he is ejaculating prematurely, unable to ejaculate, or in some cases, ejaculating back into his own bladder. Ejaculatory dysfunction can be debilitating, often resulting in poor sexual experiences for both the man and his partner. Ultimately, this condition can affect proper reproduction – resulting in further emotional trauma. At the Male Plastic Surgery Network, our goal is to help men reclaim their reproductive health. Different treatments are available that typically depend on the type of ejaculatory dysfunction the patient is experiencing.

4 Types of Ejaculatory Dysfunction:

  1. Retrograde Ejaculation: As referred to by your Urologist as “dry cell” ejaculation, retrograde occurs when there is a back up typically in the bladder. This type is also a cause of infertility. Your doctor will perform a test to confirm this condition but administering treatment. There are oral medications to ensure proper muscle function of the bladder to reserve this condition.
  2. Delayed Ejaculation: The cause of delayed ejaculation can range from depression and blood pressure issues to surgical complications and injuries. While psychotherapy can often assist in treating delayed ejaculation, several treatments can help with delayed ejaculation.
  3. Premature Ejaculation: The most common form of ejaculatory dysfunction, premature ejaculation can be treated with various strategies. Solutions include behavioral modification, physical therapy, and oral medications (which can delay ejaculation for a prolonged sexual experience).
  4. Anejaculation: The final type is when no ejaculation occurs during sexual intercourse or otherwise – possibly event the inability to climax. Your doctor will collect a sample to confirm if this is the case. Anejaculation is treated with many different options, including medication and education – these options will be discussed with your doctor depending on the cause of dysfunction.

Decreased Libido

Decreased libido refers to a man’s disinterest in sexual intercourse. While it is relatively common to lose interest in sex at different points throughout a man’s life, a low sex drive typically refers to a more extended period of time. However, roughly 1 out of 3 men experience a low sex drive or some form of sexual dysfunction.

Leading Causes of Low Sex Drive

  1. Low Testosterone: Testosterone is the primary sex hormone for men. If you suffer from low hormone levels, speaking with your doctor about TRT and/or changing your lifestyle habits may help resolve a decreased libido.
  2. Medications: Certain oral medications such as anti-depressants and benzodiazepines often contribute to a low sex drive. However, you should never discontinue medication without the advisement of your doctor, as these drugs are typically habit-forming and may require tapering.
  3. Depression: While depression may be a common culprit of many day-to-day ailments, it does, in fact, affect a man’s sex drive.
  4. Stress and Sleep Problems: Perhaps the most common, many men experience a decreased libido due to stress and a lack of sleep. In this case, it’s important to reclaim a healthy lifestyle.
  5. Chronic Illness: If you are chronically ill or have recently recovered from treatment, this can cause decreased libido. This is why it is important to share your medical history with your doctor.

What Treatments Are Available For Decreased Libido?

In every case, treatment will depend on what is causing a man’s lower sex drive. Treatments include medications, therapy, and sometimes, simple tweaks to the patient’s current dietary and medication regimen. Once your doctor determines the cause of a patient’s decreased libido, he will provide solutions to achieve your reproductive health goals.

Signs of Decreased Libido

  • Lowered interest in sexual activity
  • Fewer or no sexual thoughts
  • Less pleasurable sensations during stimulation
  • Decreased testosterone levels

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (commonly known as E.D.) is when a man cannot get or maintain a firm erection. Nearly 1 in every 10 men will experience long-term erectile dysfunction in their life. This commonly interferes with sexual intercourse or a man’s ability to orgasm. However, it is essential to speak with your doctor as an underlying issue typically causes E.D. Men with erectile dysfunction may also be experiencing a low sex drive. Again, it’s important to talk to your doctor about all of your symptoms.

It’s important to note that most men experience occasional erectile dysfunction. Typically, the causes for this may simply be drinking alcohol, stress, lack of sleep, etc. However, if a is unable to get or keep an erection 1 out of 5 times, this isn’t necessarily an instance of erectile dysfunction requiring treatment. Conversely, if you experience dysfunction half of the time, you must speak with your doctor. With today’s medicine, erectile dysfunction doesn’t have to be a part of agining.

Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction:

  • Obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • Medication (side effects)
  • Mental health
  • Performance anxiety
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Low testosterone levels
