For women it is well-known that with aging there is a decline in estrogen (menopause), but not as much awareness that a woman’s testosterone also declines.

During your consultation, Dr. Lawrence Eisenhauer will review your medical history, conduct hormonal tests and discuss your libido concerns.
What causes hormonal changes in women?
Hormonal shifts can affect your desire for sex. In women, menopause, pregnancy and breastfeeding all have a huge impact on hormone levels. Estrogen levels fall during a woman’s transition to menopause. During this period, you may feel less interested in sex and it might also be painful.
Some women suffer from vaginal atrophy due to menopause, and this may lead to vaginal dryness and other uncomfortable conditions. These symptoms can be treated by Dr. Eisenhauer with >MonaLisa Touch®, an FDA-approved laser system designed to treat menopausal atrophy symptoms and painful intercourse.
Hormonal shifts can also occur during pregnancy, after pregnancy and during breastfeeding. On top of that, fatigue, changes in body image and the pressures of pregnancy and caring for your new baby can all alter your desire for sex.

What causes hormonal changes in men?
After the age of 30, men begin to experience a gradual decline in testosterone. In some cases, a decrease in sex drive will accompany that decline. A man’s normal total testosterone range is around 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). Low T (low testosterone) can also be caused by an injury to the testicles, testicular cancer, chronic liver or kidney disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and HIV/AIDS. This can result in increased risk of heart disease. Low T can also impact couples who are trying to conceive, as it can also lead to erectile dysfunction and decreased sperm production.*

What is Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy is a plant-based treatment that does not rely on synthetic hormones or artificial ingredients. Pellets are tiny compounds (smaller than a Tic Tac) that contain testosterone or estrogen (depending on which hormone a patient needs). They are inserted into the body’s fat, under the patient’s skin (usually on the upper part of the buttocks). The Pellets are then slowly metabolized over the course of 3-4 months and release Bioidentical Hormones in the same manner that the body secretes natural hormones. These treatments are an effective way to boost hormone levels and enhance libido. Additionally, a positive side effect is a reduction in migraine headaches.*
