Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy at Apollo Men’s Health is a treatment that increases testosterone levels or other hormones to give you better balance and reduce unpleasant signs of aging. The Apollo Men's Health team offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, containing hormones that are identical to those your body naturally produces.

What are the different types of hormone replacement therapy?

Testosterone therapy for men is available in a variety of forms, including gels, patches, injections, and subdermal pellets. Apollo Men’s Health offers prescription self-injections that you can administer from the comfort of your home.

If you choose subdermal pellets, your provider numbs the skin near your upper buttocks, makes a very small incision, implants a tiny hormone pellet beneath the skin, and closes the incision site with medical strips. 

Over time, the pellets release a steady stream of hormones into your bloodstream to maintain better hormone balance over time. Your Apollo Men’s Health specialist can also replace the pellets as needed every few months or so to ensure long-lasting results.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

Some of the many benefits you may find by choosing hormone replacement therapy at Apollo Men’s Health include:

  • Convenient treatments 
  • Ease of use
  • Improved sex drive and sexual functioning
  • More lean muscle mass
  • Less body fat
  • Easier weight loss
  • More energy
  • Thicker hair
  • Stronger bone mass
  • Improved sleep quality 
  • Less erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Mood improvements
  • Reduced depression

Hormone therapy may be able to help you look and feel many years younger without invasive procedures. 

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

To find out if hormone replacement therapy is right for you, the Apollo Men’s Health team discusses your symptoms and medical history with you. 

They complete a physical exam to assess your overall health and wellness, and also recommend you undergo blood tests to evaluate your current hormone levels. Your provider personalizes each hormone replacement therapy treatment plan to give you the best results possible. 

Apollo Men’s Health specialists may combine hormone replacement therapy with other antiaging or wellness solutions, such as intravenous (IV) therapy, human growth hormone (HGH) peptide therapy, medical weight loss, healthy eating plans, brand-name dietary supplements, and regular exercise.
