Men, like women, experience profound hormonal changes as they age. While the term “menopause” is often associated with women, men go through their own unique hormonal shift known as “andropause.” At Aeternum Aesthetics, we understand the specific challenges and changes that men face during this stage of life, and we’re here to guide you through it with BHRT.
Understanding Andropause: A New Chapter in Men’s Lives
Andropause, sometimes referred to as “male menopause,” is a natural life stage marked by a decline in testosterone levels. This hormonal shift typically begins in a man’s 40s or 50s, although it can start earlier or later for some. It brings with it various physical, emotional, and psychological changes that can impact a man’s overall well-being.
What Happens During Andropause?
Decreased Testosterone Levels:
The most significant change during andropause is the decline in testosterone levels. This can lead to a range of symptoms, including reduced energy, muscle mass, and sex drive.
Many men experience increased fatigue and a general lack of energy, which can affect their daily activities.
Hormonal imbalances during andropause can lead to mood swings, irritability, and even depression.
Changes in hormone levels can disrupt sleep patterns, leading to insomnia or poor-quality sleep.
Changes in metabolism and muscle mass can contribute to weight gain.
Lower testosterone levels can result in a reduced sex drive and sometimes even erectile dysfunction.
The Role of BHRT in Managing Andropause
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can be a game-changer for men experiencing andropause. BHRT involves supplementing with biologically identical hormones to restore hormonal balance, alleviate symptoms, and improve overall well-being.
The Benefits of BHRT for Men’s Health
1. Hormonal Balance:
BHRT helps bring testosterone levels back to a more youthful state, mitigating the symptoms of andropause.
2. Increased Energy:
Many men report increased energy and a renewed sense of vitality after starting BHRT.
3. Improved Mood:
BHRT can help stabilise moods, reducing irritability and mood swings.
4. Better Sleep:
Restoring hormonal balance can lead to improved sleep quality.
5. Weight Management:
BHRT can help maintain muscle mass and support a healthy metabolism.
6. Enhanced Libido:
Many men experience improved sexual health and a revitalised sex drive.

We offer 2 types of Consultation:
Initial Consultation – £175

In order to diagnose and gain a full picture of your health and hormones, your Clinician may ask that diagnostic tests are performed. The results of such tests are what determine your personalised treatment plan and BHRT prescription. Please note that all tests required are charged separately to your appointments.

Blood tests can be performed at Aeternum Aesthetics. However, if you are not local to the clinic, and are being treated virtually, we can put you in touch with a Phlebotomy service near you.
Your Clinician may also advise other tests depending on your symptoms and medical history. We work with a number of trusted partners who are able to provide these tests where needed and you will be advised of these where necessary.
Repeat Prescription Service
Cost – £30.00
What does this entail?
This service is for existing patients only who have visited us for consultation within the last 12 months and who have an established treatment plan with no changes needed. You will be required to answer a short questionnaire based on your current treatment regime. Your Clinician will review your responses and assess your eligibility for a repeat prescription. If you are eligible, we will call you to take payment and a prescription will be raised so that you can order your treatment from Specialist Pharmacy.
