When your hormone levels fall, it causes many symptoms and issues, including low libido. Drops in hormone levels usually start around the age of 30 for men and 40 for women. A hormone imbalance can have severe mental and physical effects in addition to a decreased sex drive.
In men, testosterone is produced by the testicles and is responsible for the proper development of male sexual characteristics. Testosterone is also crucial for maintaining muscle, bone growth, a sense of wellbeing, and sexual desire and function.
For women, estrogen affects many body parts, including skin, bones, heart, brain, blood vessels, and uterus. Even the ovaries begin to produce less testosterone resulting in decreased sex drive when there is a hormone imbalance.

Riverside Spine and Physical Medicine offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) which uses natural plant-based hormones identical to the hormones naturally found in the human body. These hormones help to balance out low levels that can lead to serious health complications and low libido.
Unlike synthetic hormones used for other hormone replacement therapies, our bioidentical hormones are natural and avoid artificial treatment side effects. BHRT safely replenishes your body’s natural hormone levels.
We offer hormone pellets as a convenient solution. These pellets consist of compounded estradiol or testosterone and are about the size of a grain of rice.
During an in-office outpatient procedure, we insert pellets under the skin near the hip during a painless process. The pellets release small amounts of hormone directly into your bloodstream and can last about six months.
