Your initial consultation with Opt Health (including blood work) costs $195. If your Opt Health doctor diagnoses you with low testosterone, Opt Health provides Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) for $245 per month.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is an ongoing therapy which requires a doctor to monitor and adjust your protocol to achieve optimal results. However, some of our non-TRT offerings do not require membership, such as treatments for erectile dysfunction, hair loss, and other wellness protocols.

Treatment through Opt Health requires several online consultations. Your Opt Heath treatment will begin with an initial consultation. After 2 months, we will schedule another consultation to monitor the progress of your treatment and make adjustments if necessary. After that, you will have a check-up consultation with the Opt Health team every 6 months.

You will also have 24/7 online access to our team through the Opt Health Dashboard in between visits to continuously monitor your health.

Testosterone FAQ

Low testosterone, otherwise known as andropause, testosterone deficiency, or hypogonadism, is a condition where the body produces less testosterone than optimal. Suboptimal levels of testosterone may cause the following symptoms:

  • Decrease in lean body mass and muscle strength
  • Enlarged breasts, also known as gynecomastia
  • Weight gain
  • Decrease in bone mineral density
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Joint pain or stiff joints
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle soreness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Impaired memory and concentration
  • Insomnia or poor sleep quality
Your bloodwork and symptoms will be reviewed by an Opt Health doctor to determine if TRT is right for you.

Nutrition, lifestyle, and exposure to environmental toxins can all affect testosterone production. At Opt Health, our mission is not only to optimize your hormones, but also to facilitate your overall health transformation. Thus, your treatment plan will include our recommendations to adjust these factors to naturally improve your testosterone production as well as your overall health.

Most patients can expect to start experiencing results within four to six weeks of treatment, though this varies from patient to patient.

Fertility is not guaranteed for men undergoing TRT, but total loss of fertility is extremely rare. Most men do not even need to stop taking their testosterone to conceive. A course of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is often sufficient to improve sperm count and motility.

You can discontinue treatment at any time. However, we urge patients to never discontinue therapy abruptly, as this can lead to unpleasant side effects. If you are considering stopping TRT, please reach out to us through your Opt Health Dashboard to discuss the best approach for discontinuing treatment.

Yes. We also offer transdermal creams for those who are needle-phobic. However, we have found that injectable solutions provide more consistent results, which is why we strongly encourage our clients to consider injectable treatments.

Testosterone supplementation may increase levels of a hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which is a factor in male pattern hair loss. While hair loss is ultimately determined by genetics, it can be accelerated by increased DHT levels. If you are concerned about hair loss, please reach out to us through the Opt Health Dashboard.
