Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical and molecular structures that are produced in the body. They are derived from plant estrogens whereas traditional hormones are synthetically made. These are more potent than what our body needs. BHRT Pensacola can ease the symptoms of andropause.
In men, testicular function starts to decline in their 40s and testosterone production begins to diminish. Other causes of low testosterone in men are primary hypogonadism which is low testosterone resulting from dysfunction at the Leydig cells of the testicles, responsible for testosterone production. Often a result of traditional age-based decline. The other cause is secondary hypogonadism which is low testosterone resulting from dysfunction of the regulatory mechanism of testosterone production, they hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. More common in younger men. While there is no one time treatment to correct low testosterone, optimal levels can be maintained with ongoing therapy.
Utilization of supplemental medications, specifically Gonadorelin which helps patients maintain their natural testosterone and sperm production while treating with exogenous testosterone and can prevent unwanted side effects such as testicular atrophy.

We use Gonadorelin as a supplement to injectable testosterone. Gonadorelin is gonadotropin releasing hormone. It helps increase sperm count and volume in men, increase testosterone production and helps with testicular atrophy. Stimulates LH and FSH which is necessary for normal fertility in adults. Increases testicular size, prevents increase in estradiol, estrogen hormone, in men. In men, LH stimulates the testicles to produce the testosterone hormone while FSH stimulates the testicles to produce sperm. Gonadorelin can boost libido, improves mood and sleep quality. Side effects can include allergic reaction, stomach pain, headaches, dizziness and swelling of the lips.
