Hormone Replacement Q & A

Why Do I Need Hormone Replacement?

Hormone replacement therapy, also known as HRT, is a solution for replenishing your testosterone and stabilizing your overall hormone levels. While it’s common for your testosterone to gradually decline with age, in some cases, low testosterone is associated with testicular damage or inherited disorders, too.

In any case, you may benefit from hormone replacement if you experience any of the following issues:

  • Hair loss
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Mood changes 
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Poor memory and concentration


Low testosterone can affect your bones, too. When your hormone levels plummet, your risk of bone loss — osteoporosis — increases. You may be unaware of this issue until you have a fracture. Hormone therapy helps preserve your bone health and lower your risk of osteoporosis. 

How Does Hormone Replacement Work?

First Care Medical Clinic offers comprehensive evaluations and expanded laboratory testing to get to the root of your hormone imbalance. Your practitioner talks with you about your lifestyle and any symptoms you’re experiencing, so you can work together to build a hormone replacement plan that’s right for you. 

Hormone replacement helps boost and stabilize your testosterone through the use of:

  • Injections
  • Skin patches
  • Topical gels
  • Oral capsules


Your provider is likely going to start you out on the lowest possible dose and then adjust your treatment as needed when you come in for follow-up lab work. 

When Can I Expect Results with Hormone Replacement?

Hormone replacement provides fast results, but not overnight. The team at First Care Medical Clinic finds that most men notice an improvement in their symptoms within about four to six weeks. If you’re trying to build up muscle mass, it may take anywhere from three to six months for you to notice a considerable difference. 

First Care Medical Clinic is dedicated to providing comprehensive men’s health services. To ensure you get the most out of your hormone replacement therapy plan and fast results, your practitioner may also recommend physician-supervised weight-loss program or intimacy medication.
