Men who have been experiencing sexual health issues such as erectile dysfunction may decide to consult a urologist to find out if they could have low testosterone levels or low T. It’s perfectly natural for a man’s testosterone levels to decline gradually with age. However, for some men, the signs and symptoms of changing hormone levels are difficult to cope with. Urologists previously gave men with impotence oral testosterone therapies. However, it’s now known that these medications are not effective and may even be harmful.
Similarly, testosterone injections do not create stable testosterone levels and may lead to testicular atrophy. There are better options available today, such as transdermal applications. Men who are interested in a long-term solution might consider receiving an implantable pellet, which releases testosterone over four to six months.
Urology Associates P.C. is pleased to offer transdermal testosterone therapies and implantable pellets to men who experience sexual health problems in Tennessee. Give us a call today at 888-656-0667 to set up an appointment.
