What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Males?
Men over 30 years old experience a natural decline in energy, drive, stamina, and mental sharpness that is associated with the aging process due to a decline in hormone levels. This is known as andropause. One of the primary hormones that we see this drop in is testosterone.
The decline in hormone levels can have a significant impact on a man's overall well-being. Signs of hormonal imbalance or low testosterone levels include reduced sexual desire, decreased energy levels, weight gain, difficulty in building and recovering muscle, feelings of depression, irritability, trouble sleeping, fatigue, memory loss, and erectile dysfunction.
At Renew Me Medical, we're committed to offering our male patients a safe and healthy solution to combat the effects of aging through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Our expert team specializes in creating customized treatment programs tailored to your specific symptoms, medical history, and laboratory results. Our goal is to help you feel well, perform better, and achieve your personal goals.

There are different ways to receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men, and your provider will recommend the best option for you based on your symptoms and blood test results. Here are the different methods for taking testosterone:
- Pellets – Small bioidentical hormone implants are placed under the skin in a concealed area. This is a simple procedure done with a local anesthetic, and the pellets can last up to 6 months before needing to be replaced.
Learn More About Pellets
- Cream – Testosterone can be absorbed through the skin effectively, making cream application a convenient and non-invasive daily method. It's an easy way to deliver the hormone to your body.
- Injections – Testosterone injections can be given directly into the muscles. This method is highly effective in raising testosterone levels. Injections can be administered at our clinic, or we can teach you how to do them yourself at home. Typically, injections are given once a week.
Follow-up, Ongoing Monitoring, and Maintenance
Once you start hormone replacement therapy, we will regularly check your hormone levels and assess your symptoms to ensure you're absorbing the prescribed hormones effectively and experiencing relief. If necessary, adjustments to the hormone dosages will be made accordingly. Optimizing your hormone levels is an ongoing process that involves regular communication and collaboration between you and your provider.
At Renew Me Medical, we are dedicated to your well-being and will work with you to ensure you receive the best possible care throughout your hormone replacement therapy journey.
Frequently Asked Questions
Bioidentical hormones are molecules that exactly match the hormones naturally present in your body. They are derived from yam and soy plants and then synthesized into bioidentical hormones. Your body recognizes and responds to them in the same way as its own hormones. It's important to note that the method of administration, such as pills, creams, patches, or pellets, can affect their effectiveness and side effects. Achieving balanced hormone levels can lead to an active, happy, and healthy life.
Both types of hormones are produced in a laboratory, but they differ in their molecular structure and how the body metabolizes them. Natural bioidentical hormones come from plant sources and closely match our body's molecular structure, offering the health benefits of producing our own hormones. On the other hand, synthetic hormones were created by pharmaceutical companies as they couldn't patent natural hormones. Synthetic hormones do not match our body's molecular structure and can cause adverse reactions when taken.
Contrary to popular belief, bioidentical hormones derived from plant sources, such as soy and yams, are approved by the FDA. These hormones are formulated in a lab and customized to each patient's needs at a compounding pharmacy. The delivery methods can include pellets, pills, gels, creams, patches, and vaginal rings. Synthetic hormones, in contrast, are standardized in dose and delivery method for precise regulation. Bioidentical hormones are customized to your specific requirements, which can make regulation more challenging.
Bioidentical hormone replacement may be necessary for life. When hormone therapy is stopped, deficient levels quickly return along with the symptoms that were present before treatment. The duration of treatment will be determined in consultation with your provider, considering factors such as your age, hormone levels, and overall health.
I love renew me medical group!
Great customer service, Professional staff, knowledgeable, and Friendly - I am always welcomed with a smile. After I started visiting, I started to learn more about what I was missing/what levels were low and how we could get them back up. I've had Vitamin D injections and started natural hormones, and feel great! I'm thankful for the staff, their continued support whenever I visit, and offering whatever assistance I may need.
The staff is amazing and super nice
The staff is amazing and super nice. I don't love local to the office so when I do go in it's nice to be in and out of the office quickly. Easy to get next day appointments if need be.I love the fact that if I don't want to I don't have to come in weekly to pick up my next dose.Monthly deals also make it affordable compared to other clinics.
