About Andropause Treatment

Low T is a natural part of aging, but the changes to mood and mental clarity associated with the condition can disrupt daily life. Andropause, colloquially referred to as male menopause, can occur in men between the ages of 40 and 50. From age 30 on, men’s testosterone levels decline by 1% every year (1) and by age 75, most men will have lost 35% of their testosterone. (2) The good news is, these changes are not permanent. Andropause treatment with BHRT can quickly and effectively reverse the effects of hormone imbalances. After treatment at AsandraMD you can:

  • Put an end to muscle mass decline and reduce excess fat: If your hormones are out of balance, you may experience excess fat. Elevated stress levels, your body’s inability to process fat, and a decline in healthy muscle mass can affect your entire physique. BHRT reverses this to make maintaining a healthy body weight easier.
  • Reduce mood swings, stress, and irritability: Hormone imbalances can cause mood swings and feelings of irritability that affect your performance at work and intimate relationships. Rebalancing your hormones with andropause treatment will improve your quality of life.
  • Reduce fatigue and improve energy: An andropause treatment can improve your energy because your body will no longer have to overcompensate for the effects of low testosterone. You will feel well rested and your fatigue will subside after an andropause treatment.
  • Increase libido and improve intimacy: Andropause can result in erectile dysfunction which can impact intimacy. Hormonal imbalances can result in a decrease in libido. BHRT therapy reverses these effects to help you restore your vitality.

What is BHRT?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a pellet-based treatment that rebalances hormone levels for men who are experiencing a drop in certain hormones like testosterone (androgens). The treatment uses natural plant-based androgens to elevate your testosterone levels, replenishing your body’s supply and restoring your health in the most natural way possible. BHRT treatment is a way to maintain equilibrium in your body and prevent health issues caused by low testosterone. If left untreated, low testosterone can result in hypogonadism syndrome which can lead to sexual dysfunction, depression, feelings of fatigue, and even depression.

BHRT Candidates

Andropause Treatment, Men, Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, Dr. Christopher Asandra

The best candidates for andropause treatment with BHRT are experiencing a decrease in testosterone and need to restore their hormone levels. If you are suffering from mood changes such as depression, irritability, changes in self-esteem, or trouble managing stress, you are likely a good candidate for andropause treatment. (3) If you have a blood clotting condition, history of cancer, stroke, or cardiovascular disease, you may not be the best candidate for the treatment.

Andropause Treatment

During your appointment, Dr. Asandra will discuss your goals, symptoms and lifestyle to identify areas where you can practice healthier habits. We will also draw your blood to measure your hormone levels. If there is an imbalance, we will recommend hormone therapy and discuss the best treatment based on your medical history. Dr. Asandra will discuss your symptoms and lifestyle to determine the best therapy. The treatments do not require surgery and are a minimally invasive way to help your body heal. Injections and hormone pellets are the most popular, effective methods for balancing your hormone levels.


Injections are a fast, minimally invasive procedure. Dr. Asandra will inject hormones into your muscles and over the next two weeks, your body will absorb the androgens to balance your hormones. For patients who are not able to use creams, this is one of the best ways to balance hormone levels. If you are breastfeeding or concerned about using a topical cream that could rub off on another person, an injection will be the best treatment route.

Hormone Pellets

Hormone pellets are small rice-sized capsules that contain hormones. Dr. Asandra will make a discrete incision and will use a small device to place the pellets beneath your skin. Your body will absorb them over the next 3-6 months to help you recover from low testosterone levels. We will wrap the area with a bandage to allow your skin to heal. The pellets will not be noticeable and you will not be able to feel them while your body absorbs them.

Results of Andropause Treatment

After an andropause treatment, you can enjoy increased quality of life and restored hormone levels. The length of your treatment will depend on your body. If you are experiencing a temporary decline in testosterone, your treatment plan will be different than a chronic decline. For most men, andropause from aging is chronic and you will need to come back to the office to restore your testosterone supply.

What is TRT?

Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment for andropause that increases testosterone levels to relieve symptoms. During the treatment, we can use special pellets to increase your hormone levels. As you age, testosterone levels decline. This simple therapy can rebalance your entire body, restore sexual function, and help you get back to your daily routines without long recovery times or surgery.

What makes BHRT for men different from traditional hormone replacement therapy?

BHRT for men utilizes bio-identical hormones that are structurally similar to hormones naturally produced by your body. This approach aims to restore hormone levels to their optimal range, closely mimicking natural hormone function. Traditional hormone replacement therapy often uses synthetic hormones that may not be identical to those produced naturally.

Does andropause treatment hurt?

Andropause treatment is not painful, but you may feel some slight discomfort if you receive pellet therapy immediately following the insertion procedure.

When will I start feeling better after andropause treatment?

You can begin to enjoy the effects immediately after the treatment and will continue to feel better as your body naturally balances out your hormones with the medication.
