What Can BHRT Do for Men?

By: Dr. Thomas Terence Easter


BHRT (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy) uses hormones to treat a variety of health conditions and symptoms. While BHRT is known to be beneficial for women, it can also optimize testosterone levels in men. Below, Dr. Thomas Terence Easter takes a closer look at what BHRT can do for men in Upland, CA. Call to schedule an appointment at Women's Medical Group of Upland and see how we enhance your quality of life through hormone treatment.

What causes low testosterone levels?

Men may experience low testosterone levels for a number of reasons. Genetics, age, and lifestyle choices are among the top explanations. Certain medical conditions, treatments like chemotherapy, and hormone disorders also lead to low testosterone.

Unfortunately, even minor hormone changes can cause unwanted symptoms, such as:

  • Poor sex drive and performance: Testosterone is essential for a healthy libido. Low testosterone levels cause problems with sexual function and erectile dysfunction.

  • Low energy: Many men with low hormone levels report feeling tired and sluggish, even after a full night of sleep.

  • Reduced muscle mass: Testosterone helps men maintain and build muscle tissue. Low testosterone leads to a decrease in strength and loss of muscle mass.

  • A decline in focus: Testosterone plays a role in mental focus and concentration. Some men experience brain fog when their hormones are affected.

  • Poor sleep: Low testosterone disrupts proper sleep patterns, causing insomnia or restless nights.

  • Weight gain: Hormones help regulate metabolism, so low hormone levels could cause weight gain, particularly around the midsection.

Symptoms of low testosterone can be debilitating. If you have one or more of the above issues, consult with a professional, like Dr. Easter, to find out if bioidentical hormone replacement can help meet your health goals in Upland, CA.

How do bioidentical hormones help?

Bioidentical hormones are identical in structure to the natural hormones produced by your body. When used in hormone therapy, they restore your health and alleviate symptoms of low testosterone.

BHRT can be administered in many ways, including capsules, skin creams or gels, tablets that dissolve under your tongue, suppositories, or nasal sprays. The best method of delivery will be determined after a thorough consultation with a member of our team.

Are there any risks associated with BHRT?

As with any health-based treatment, there are possible risks and side effects associated with hormone replacement. But when administered by a trained professional, like Dr. Easter, these risks are minimal. Men who undergo BHRT at Women's Medical Group of Upland are closely monitored to ensure that their hormone levels remain within a good range and to ensure the best possible results.

What results can I expect from BHRT?

Most men who undergo bioidentical hormones notice an improvement in their overall well-being, energy levels, sex drive, and focus over time. Muscle mass and strength may also increase with treatment. Patients at our clinic are happy to report feeling like their younger selves soon after starting BHRT.
