To See A Doctor For Testosterone Therapy?
Afternoon doctor, I have read about testosterone therapy at HealthReplies.com. To get this therapy, I need to see a specialist doctor, right? Or andrology doctor? Thank you Zevero
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Testosterone is a hormone that naturally exists in the male body, and serves to display secondary sex characteristics such as facial hair growth on the body, making sounds heavier, development of genital organs, bone density, sexual arousal, and fertility in the form of helping the production of sperm cells .
Those who experience a deficiency of this hormone, will experience fertility problems, erectile disorders, obstruction of puberty and disruption of the growth of the reproductive organs in men. Regarding your question, doctors who can provide treatment for testosterone are endocrinologists, or andrologists.
But actually more important than a doctor who is able to provide therapy is the indication, or what is the reason you want to do the therapy. Because not everything that can be treated with testosterone therapy, must be treated with testosterone therapy. For example to reduce libido, this can occur due to mental influences, such as stress, bad relationship with a partner, and so forth. Likewise with fertility, and other conditions where testosterone therapy is the treatment.
So our advice, you should check yourself to a general practitioner first, to be directed to the appropriate specialist, then later if you really need the therapy, it will be recommended by the specialist who treats you. So, hopefully answering your question.
