If you have additional questions about Hormone Therapy at The Hamlet Clinic, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Do testosterone boosters actually work?

Yes! Testosterone boosters are a great treatment for men or women who have low T levels. Low testosterone levels can have negative effects in both genders. Men have higher testosterone levels than women. This hormone plays a role in many male bodily functions such as in the mind, body and sexual function. Low levels of testosterone may show up as low energy, decreased sex drive, increased breast size, ED, hot flashes, difficulty concentrating, and low sperm count. Women with low testosterone levels may also experience a decrease in sex drive, lower energy levles, and feelings of depression. Testosterone boosters can help boost T levels and help your body function optimally again. We will customize your treatment to address your concerns and health. A physical examination, laboratory examination and review of your medical history will help us determine your best treatment and dosage. We will perform a blood test every six months to determine your response to the treatment and make any adjustments necessary. The results of Testosterone Boosters will be seen within a few weeks. Every patient is unique and results may differ for each person. The longer testosterone treatment is performed, the better the results will be. 

Testosterone boosters will help boost your quality of life and bodily functions. 

Are testosterone boosters bad for you?

Testosterone boosters should not be bad for you. At the Hamlet Clinic, each of our patients attend a personal consultation with either Dr. Hamlet or another one of our highly qualified practitioners to ensure they are healthy candidates for the procedure. A part of determining your candidacy will be a thorough examination of your current health, past procedures, medications and supplements, and allergies. This information will help us determine if you are a good candidate for testosterone boosters. If we believe testosterone boosters are not a healthy option for you, we will not recommend the treatment and will determine if there is an appropriate alternative plan to improve your concerns. 

Your personal consultation with us is a safety precaution to ensure you are a good candidate. This meeting is for you as well! We want to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have. Our goal is to educate our patients so they feel they can make a well-informed decision for their health. If you are interested in learning more about the anti-aging services we offer, please feel free to reach out to our office! We are more than happy to assist you.

Which testosterone booster is best?

The best testosterone booster for you will depend on your health. A consultation will help determine the appropriate dosage and treatment for your health concerns. We want you to feel your best as soon as possible. The best way to start on the path to a healthier, more energized you is to give us a call and schedule a consultation. We will be able to assess your health and assign the best treatment plan for you in this meeting. We recognize that everyone is different and has their own unique health that they walk through our doors with. We want each patient to receive the care and attention they deserve, which is why we offer personal meetings with our practitioners.

What are the side effects of taking testosterone boosters?

Some testosterone booster side effects include low sperm count and acne. We will go in-depth on the possible side effects of boosters in your personal consultation. Assessing your health is a part of determining if T Therapy is a good option for you. Patients who have prostate or breast cancer are not applicable for testosterone therapy, but if you have overcome these cancers in the past, you may be a good candidate now. We will help you determine if testosterone therapy is a good option for you.

What are the benefits of testosterone injections?

There are many benefits associated with testosterone therapy. The treatment is simple and quick: the therapy is administered once a week for men and once a month for women. Blood tests will be performed every six months to ensure the desired results are achieved and to provide any necessary adjustments. Not only is the application convenient, the benefits are far-reaching. Your daily life will improve and overall the quality of your life will change for the better. Patients often see improvements after a few weeks. Energy levels and sex drive increase in about three to six weeks. Improved energy can have many benefits on your life! You will feel ready to take on the day, have the energy to work out and overall should feel better on a daily basis. We want you to live your best life and testosterone therapy may be your answer!

What are the side effects of taking testosterone pills?

We do not offer testosterone pills because they are too harsh on the liver.  Instead, we offer treatment in the form of pellet therapy and injections. If you are interested in testosterone therapy we encourage you to book a meeting with one of our practitioners. Your consultation will be a great time to learn all about our hormone therapy options and how they can  improve your health. We will take this meeting as an opportunity to learn about your health and determine if you are an ideal candidate for testosterone therapy. This meeting is also your chance to ask questions and voice any concerns. Our patients find it helpful to write down their questions beforehand and bring them along to their consultation. That way they know they will get the answers they want. 

What is the best treatment for low testosterone?

If you recently discovered that you have low testosterone levels, we can help. The Hamlet Center’s practitioners have an in-depth knowledge of hormone regulation and how hormones improve your body’s functions. The best treatment for you will depend on your lifestyle, symptoms, and current hormone levels. Injections and pellet therapy are the two forms of treatment we offer for testosterone regulation.

We will inquire about your health history to gauge your candidacy for hormone therapy. A test will also be performed to examine your current hormone levels. This information will help us personalize your treatment plan. Along with testosterone therapy, we encourage our patients to live a healthy lifestyle. Exercise and healthy eating will maximize the results you experience from hormone therapy.

How can I raise my testosterone naturally?

Your testosterone levels are tied to your body’s health. Patients often see improvements in their testosterone levels from exercise like lifting weights, running or any activity you enjoy that increases your heart rate. Healthy eating with a focus on whole foods (healthy fats, raw veggies, nuts, fruits and proteins) with minimal snacking will help your body function well. These activities will help you live well and allow your body to operate efficiently. Of course, these activities may not be enough to balance out your hormones. In fact, many of our patients experience low energy and have difficulty performing the above activities because their testosterone levels are low. If this sounds like you, don’t worry. We are here to provide you the support and care you need. A consultation at our clinic will help determine your candidacy and best treatment plan. Feel better in no time with improved testosterone levels. Adopting a healthy lifestyle will improve your results and help you feel your best!

What is hormone therapy used for?

Hormone therapy, or HRT, is used for many reasons. Hormone therapy is often used by women as they go through menopause. HRT may improve hot flashes, sex drive, vaginal dryness, fatigue, energy levels, mood, comfort during sex and memory. Many women find hormone therapy a lifeline as they go through menopause. For men, hormone therapy has many of the same benefits such as an increased sex drive, improved energy and ability to think more clearly. These benefits reach all throughout our patient’s lives and ultimately improve their quality of life. We believe you deserve to live your best life and will set you up with a personalized treatment plan that lets you do so!

How safe is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy is a safe treatment for low or unbalanced hormones. A personal consultation with one of our practitioners will help us determine if the therapy is a healthy option for you. We will not recommend treatment if we do not believe it is safe. Together, we will create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and improves your hormone levels. Hormone therapy can be stopped at any point. We perform a blood test every six months to ensure you are doing well and to make any alterations if needed.

What are the benefits of hormone therapy?

There are many advantages to hormone therapy. The most noticeable improvement is increased energy levels. Patients will see positive changes in their energy levels and body’s function within three to six weeks of treatment. An improvement in energy means so many things for our patients! They have the energy to exercise and lose bothersome weight. Our patients also find they have a better mood and increased sex drive. There are many benefits of balancing your hormone levels; ultimately, this treatment should help you feel more yourself
