Testosterone levels can begin to drop as early as age 30 and can lead to troublesome symptoms like low libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, loss of muscle mass and obesity. If your levels are decreased, testosterone replacement can help to alleviate these symptoms. As with any kind of treatment, there are risks and benefits, and individual results may vary. At Trinity Men’s Health, you will be thoroughly informed of the pros and cons and carefully monitored throughout any course of treatment. We only administer injectable bioidentical testosterone cypionate as a treatment regimen and do not dispense or sell medication.
Erectile dysfunction will likely happen to every man at some point in his life. Most of the time it is just temporary or transient. As a man gets older, however, it may become more frequent and lead to relationship difficulties or negative emotions. It could also be a sign of an underlying health condition. Men don’t have to suffer in silence. There are effective treatments available, even if an underlying cause isn’t found.
Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for obtaining a sexually transmitted disease, even if condoms are used 100% of the time! In fact, the Centers for Disease Control estimates that there are over 20 MILLION new STD infections in the United States every year! Men can have symptoms like a burning or tingling sensation while urinating, testicular pain, penile discharge, rashes, and swollen lymph nodes. Or, there might not be any symptoms at all!
HIV PreP is a once-a-day pill, that, when used in conjunction with safer sexual practices, can tremendously reduce the risk of becoming infected with HIV. It is generally very well tolerated and effective but must be taken under the care and supervision of a physician. Though there are some programs available for self-pay patients, the cost of medication is quite high and it is recommended that you have pharmacy/lab insurance benefits if you choose to start PreP.
If you’re not on PreP and are potentially exposed to HIV, post-exposure prophylaxis, or PEP, is also an effective method of preventing HIV infection. However, it must be started WITHIN 72 HOURS of possible exposure. Ideally, medication should be started as soon as possible and it may be appropriate to go to a 24-hour urgent care/emergency room. However, if our clinic is open and you are in need of this service, we will walk you in even if there are no same day appointments available.
As with automobiles, preventive maintenance can keep small problems from becoming devastating catastrophes. The human body is no different. Even if you feel healthy, unknown entities like high blood pressure could be doing irreparable harm and you might not even notice it until it’s too late. An annual checkup can help to identify concerns while they remain manageable or reversible. If the last time you saw a doctor was your high school sports physical, perhaps it’s time to get a checkup!
Hair loss in men is extremely common. Though the underlying cause is most likely due to genetic factors, there are medical conditions that could be contributory and a medical evaluation may be appropriate. As far as treatment goes, hair transplants have become revolutionary, but they are also quite expensive. There are medical treatments that can slow the progression of hair loss that you might want to try while saving up for that transplant!
Amongst couples having difficulty conceiving, a male cause is likely to at least be contributory about 40% of the time. Before you decide to consult an expensive fertility specialist three hours drive away who is booked up for months, come in to Trinity Men’s Health and obtain an initial evaluation.
Pain in the testicles can have many different causes from infections to cancers. Most etiologies can be diagnosed and treated in a primary care setting and you don’t necessarily have to consult a urologist unless surgery is needed. In fact, many urologist’s offices require a referral from another doctor or a consultation with their nurse practitioner before you even get to speak with them!
Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer in men with incidence rates steadily increasing between the ages of 40-75. Rates are higher in African American men and in men who have a close relative (such as a father, grandfather, uncle, or brother) with a history of prostate cancer. Some experts believe early detection is the key while others believe too much screening can lead to unnecessary and invasive procedures. At Trinity Men’s Health, we believe men should make informed decisions about their medical care.
Prostatitis means inflammation of the prostate gland. Common causes are infection or repetitive trauma, such as frequent bicycle riding and can result in a host of urinary symptoms. These can include difficulty starting or stopping a urine stream, dribbling, frequently needing to urinate at night, a sense of incomplete bladder emptying, testicular or back pain.
Men suffering from this condition find it a heavy weight to bear but they are not alone. Upwards of 30% of men have dealt with it at some point in their lives and it’s not just a problem for younger men. Persistent problems can lead to relationship difficulties and negative emotions which tend to only make things worse. Treatments are available.

New medications and treatments can raise the probability of success up to 70%! If you are motivated to quit and desire to lead a healthier life, Trinity Men’s Health can help you achieve that goal.
