Hormone Therapy Q & A

Why do I need hormone therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is important for men. If you have a thyroid disorder, for instance, you may need thyroid hormone therapy to stabilize your thyroid hormones. This can help treat hypothyroidism-related issues, including thinning hair, weight gain, and chronic fatigue.

Men can benefit from testosterone hormone therapy to improve their testosterone levels, which resolves many of the following issues:

  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Decreased muscle mass

By conducting extensive laboratory testing and evaluating your symptoms, Dr. Dwivedi can check your thyroid, testosterone, or other hormone levels, so he can determine if hormone therapy is right for you. 

What can I expect during my hormone therapy treatment?

When you meet with Dr. Dwivedi, he spends time going over your medical history, lab results, and symptoms. He counsels you about which hormone therapy solutions may be right for you. 

For hypothyroidism issues, for instance, you may need thyroid hormone therapy with levothyroxine or another type of oral medication.

Men struggling with low testosterone might need:

  • Intramuscular testosterone injections
  • Testosterone skin patches or gel

Dr. Dwivedi educates you about each type of hormone treatment that may work for you, so you can make an informed decision about your treatment. 

When will hormone therapy start working?

Hormone therapy plans from Dr. Dwivedi are highly effective, although you won’t experience results overnight. It takes time for your hormones to stabilize, but you should start noticing small improvements in your symptoms within a few weeks. 

Dr. Dwivedi typically schedules you for a follow-up visit about two or three months after you begin your hormone treatment plan. He conducts comprehensive blood testing during your follow-up visit to check your hormone levels, so he can make any necessary adjustments. 

After this point, it’s common to need quarterly or twice-a-year follow-ups to re-evaluate your labs and overall hormone therapy plan.
