Men's Health Q&A

What happens during a men’s health physical exam?

Your physical exam is tailored to you, your health, and your concerns. During your physical, your provider will likely:

  • Perform a prostate exam
  • Screen you for sexually transmitted diseases
  • Talk to you about birth control
  • Check your pulse and blood pressure
  • Feel your lymph nodes
  • Order blood or lab work
  • Evaluate your overall wellness
  • Talk to you about fertility (if needed)

Why do I have low testosterone?

Having low testosterone can happen for a variety of reasons. Because symptoms often develop over time, you might not be aware of your low testosterone until you have your hormone levels checked. Low testosterone can be caused by:

  • Genetics
  • Myotonic dystrophy
  • Thyroid issues
  • Viral infections
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Alcoholism or drug use
  • Physical injury to your testes

How can testosterone therapy help me?

Having low testosterone levels can impact just about everything in your body. Once your doctor identifies that you have low testosterone, he or she will most likely recommend a testosterone replacement plan right away. Testosterone therapy can help:

  • Get rid of issues with erectile dysfunction
  • Stabilize your moods
  • Build muscle mass
  • Slow down the progression of hair loss
  • Boost your libido
  • Improve your sleep

You might even need testosterone therapy as a transgender individual. Whether you have already started the process or just need to maintain your hormone level, your provider at Piñero Preventive Medical Care can help set you up on a testosterone treatment plan.

Can erectile dysfunction be treated?

Yes. Talk with your practitioner about your concerns. He or she can find just the right treatment for you after screening you for health issues. For instance, if your erectile dysfunction is caused by low testosterone, upping your testosterone levels might be the perfect solution. Otherwise, it’s possible to treat erectile dysfunction with:

  • Prescription medications
  • Self injections
  • Suppositories
  • Penis pumps
  • Penile implants

Your doctor will also talk with you about your stress level and how often you exercise. Since high stress and lack of physical activity can magnify erectile dysfunction problems, you might need to resolve these issues before trying anything else.
