Men's Health Q & A

What is andropause?

Andropause, also called male menopause, is the natural drop in testosterone men face as they age. Numerous symptoms characterize it, including:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Irritability
  • Muscle loss
  • Fatigue

Although testosterone-level decreases are normal as men age, testosterone is vital. But, if it gets too low, it can impact your health and wellness. Low testosterone is associated with obesity and Type 2 diabetes and may also increase your risk of heart attack or stroke.

How do you know if you have low testosterone?

If you feel like you’ve lost some of your vigor, you may be suffering from low testosterone. When you see Dr. Beregovskaya, she completes a physical exam and reviews your symptoms. She may ask questions regarding your health and function and order tests to rule out other conditions. She may also request blood testing to determine your testosterone levels.

What treatments can improve men’s health?

At BioMD Balance Solutions, Dr. Beregovskaya offers lifestyle counseling and treatment options for a variety of men’s health issues. One way is with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Using this therapy, Dr. Beregovskaya determines how low your hormone levels are and creates a bioidentical hormone replacement to help balance your body and restore optimal functioning.

Available in a variety of applications, you can use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in:

  • Creams
  • Gels
  • Injections
  • Pellets

To get the best results, Dr. Beregovskaya may recommend hormone pellets. Implanted underneath the skin, these pellets mimic your body’s natural hormone secretion process, bringing you the most natural hormone replacement possible. Once in place, pellets provide a steady dose of testosterone over three to four months with a reduced risk of side effects.

Is there support for men’s weight loss?

When it comes to improving your overall health and wellness, Dr. Beregovskaya may also recommend lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise. She suggests a diet focused on real, whole foods, including fruits, vegetables, and lean meats. She also recommends you get at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week.

For those who need extra support, Dr. Beregovskaya offers a customized weight-management program that includes:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise program
  • Dietary supplements
  • Regular weigh-ins
  • Doctor support

What treatment is available for erectile dysfunction?

If you struggle to achieve or maintain an erection up to 80% of the time, you may suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED). Dr. Beregovskaya uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy treatments to help resolve your ED naturally.

The Priapus™ shot takes your own blood then places it in a centrifuge to concentrate your growth factors before being injected into the penis. After treatment, you may notice an increase in penis:

  • Firmness
  • Length
  • Girth
  • Stamina
  • Sensation

What cosmetic treatments are available for men?

At BioMD Balance Solutions, Dr. Beregovskaya provides BotoxⓇ and dermal fillers for men who want to reduce the signs of aging. These procedures restore a more youthful look by reducing the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brow lines
  • Expression lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin
