Men’s Health

Men’s Health is defined by ScienceDirect as both the physical and mental aspects of health for men across the lifespan. Just as women have specific health problems related to their reproductive systems, so do men. However, men are less likely to participate in preventive health care and are more likely to participate in high risk behaviors. Improving the health and well being of men is crucial in improving the overall health and well-being of the community.

Men's Health Related Questions

From our experience treating patients in the primary care setting, we have noted that men tend to avoid their health and do not visit the doctor on a regular basis. Just like women’s health, men’s health is also important and should readily be available to patients. Sexual function and performance are two areas that are very significant in a man’s well- being. A men’s health clinic at the Fluvanna Health and Wellness will provide convenient individualized care for these men in need.

At The Fluvanna Health & Wellness is equipped to care for men with erectile dysfunction, hypogonadism, low libido, and those with decreased sexual stamina. We provide testosterone replacement therapy and with treatment for erectile dysfunction with PDE5 inhibitors.

Your Testosterone is the primary male hormone and is responsible for regulation of sex differentiation. It also is responsible for secondary male characteristics, also known as masculinity. This includes male hair patterns, muscle growth, deep voice, motivation, and drive.

Your Optimal testosterone levels vary based on many factors, such as age, height, and weight. An evaluation using a blood test will help us determine your testosterone levels.

There are many signs and symptoms caused by low testosterone. Low testosterone levels may cause a low sex drive, erectile disfunction, difficulty building muscle, high pitched voice, decreased amounts of body hair, irritability, fatigue, and depression.

If you have symptoms of low testosterone and would like to be evaluated for treatment, you will need to schedule an appointment to be seen in the office. At this appointment, we will gather a throughout history, perform an exam, and do blood work (if labs have not already been done by your PCP).
