Why

Hormone Therapy

Hormones of natural origin and identical bio-composition to those of the body are utilized to help patients maintain optimum hormonal levels.

The body’s hormones are crucial in maintaining health and wellness. However, as the years go by and as age takes its toll, the body’s capacity to create hormones may diminish and their levels may become imbalanced. This leads to a variety of unpleasant symptoms including mood changes, weight gain and other health complications.

To ensure patients stay healthy and happy as they age, Dr. Levinstein provides hormone replacement therapy to allow patients to reach their natural levels.

What Is Erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex. Having erection trouble from time to time isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. If erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease.

Common causes of erectile dysfunction

When you have erectile dysfunction, it means you’re not able to achieve or maintain an erection that’s firm enough for sex. Many men experience occasional erectile dysfunction from time to time because of environmental situations like stress, depression or other mental health issues, or unhealthy habits like excessive alcohol use or smoking.

There are also a variety of underlying health conditions that can influence the quality of your erection including:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Another leading cause of erectile dysfunction is a hormone imbalance. As men get older, their natural hormone production decreases. You might also experience an imbalance of testosterone or other hormones if you have underlying health conditions like thyroid disease.

While there are treatment options available for many causes of erectile dysfunction, hormone replacement therapy is a highly effective and convenient treatment for men who have a hormone imbalance.1

What to expect from hormone therapy

Hormone replacement therapy involves the use of supplemental hormones to rebalance your natural hormone levels.

Our providers at Urology Specialist Group offer supplemental hormones that come in a variety of delivery methods. The goal of your treatment is to provide your body with a steady stream of hormones to improve symptoms of an imbalance, including erectile dysfunction.

Depending on your needs and preferences, our physicians may recommend:

  • Gels
  • Pellets
  • Injections
  • Topical creams

If pellet therapy is the right option for you, our urologist can insert a small pellet just under the surface of your skin in your arm or other part of your body. The pellet slowly releases hormones into your body over time.

Benefits of hormone therapy for erectile dysfunction

Hormone therapy is an effective way to restore balance in your testosterone and other reproductive hormone levels. Soon after starting your treatment, you should experience a noticeable reduction in your symptoms and an increase in your sex drive.

Rebalanced hormones also support healthier erections, so you can enjoy satisfying sex.

Some of the benefits of hormone therapy for erectile dysfunction includes:

  • Discreet treatment
  • Improved sexual function
  • Easy-to-use delivery methods
  • Minimal risk for side effects
  • Long-lasting results

Hormone therapy may also be more convenient than a penis pump or more invasive penile implant surgery.
