Men can experience a condition called andropause (Male Menapause) caused by low testosterone. Symptoms may include feeling of sluggishness, fatigue, poor sleeping habits, poor attention and concentration, poor mental clarity and cognitive function, weight gain, poor appetite, low sex drive and Erectile Dysfunction. Hormonal replacement may improve these symptoms but not necessarily the erectile function.
If appropriate, we may recommend a course of hormonal replacement as an intramuscular testosterone injection or a testosterone pellet. A standard regimen consists of weekly injections or pellets every 5-6 months.
