From there, depending on your results, our men’s health physicians may prescribe our Hormone Reboot Program.
Our program is specifically designed to restart your body’s natural testosterone production, not replace it. This means you will never be dependent on it, we aim to reignite a. system that already exists. As such, we examine your symptoms and biomarkers at the 6-week and 6-month mark to determine the best course of action. This is not one-sized fits all.
It is important to address the total picture. A diagnosis and treatment protocol will be rendered after a careful examination of your medical history, vitals, symptoms, and comprehensive blood work.
No. Why? Replacing hormones should be seen as the last resort for men, not the first, as most men do not actually need it. Enclomiphene, our primary hormone-boosting ingredient, is the safest alternative to TRT treatment, as TRT carries high risks ranging from potential dependence to testicular shrinkage to decreased sperm production.
Here is a video of Chas, the founder, explaining the at-home test kit basics: https://www.videoask.com/fsuv50duv
1. Only take and ship the test Monday-Thursday (UPS only) * (If you ship on Friday/Saturday or use FedEx/USPS, our office will make fun of you. Don’t be THAT guy)
2. Ship the test the same day you take it (UPS only)
3. Only take the test first thing in the morning before physical activity (food/drink is ok)
Your at-home test kit includes no-cost overnight shipping to the lab using UPS. Once the lab receives your samples, you will receive your analysis within 5 business days.
So do we, and yes, it’s as painless as possible. Pressing the button down releases a tiny needle that horizontally pierces the skin (sounds awful, but this approach reduces the incision’s depth and size). From there, it takes about 5 minutes to fill the tube. During that 5 minutes, you don’t feel anything, nor is there any pain removing the device.
Our at-home test requires an overnight fast with no exercise the morning of your blood draw. Drink at least 8-12 ounces 1 hour before your use the test kit. Dehydration will slow down your blood from filling the tube.
Testosterone would likely not be affected by ejaculation, whereas PSA would be. Look, we’re not going to tell you how to live your life, but if you’re trying to measure your PSA as accurately as possible, you might want to hold off on any bedroom stuff.
Yes! With the purchase of your At-Home Test kit, we provide access to speak directly with our men’s health physicians. This is how we deliver your results and discuss possible treatment options.

For those who are familiar, clomiphene citrate consists of a mixture of isomers (enclomiphene and zuclomiphene), and enclomiphene citrate is a single isomer with pure estrogen antagonism.
Enclomiphene citrate is the purified isomer of Clomid (clomiphene citrate), a non-steroidal selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that has been prescribed since 1967 to treat ovarian dysfunction in women. It has also been used off-label to treat low testosterone.
SERMs like enclomiphene and clomiphene act as estrogen antagonists by binding to hypothalamic estrogen receptors in the brain. This tricks the body into thinking that it’s not getting enough estrogen, thus stimulating the production of the hormones luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
In addition to increasing testosterone levels, enclomiphene tablets have also been shown to increase sperm count.
In one 2013 study, enclomiphene citrate elevated sperm counts in 100% of men at three months and the six-month mark where sperm concentrations were in the 75-334 × 10(6) /mL range.
And in a three-month study comparing enclomiphene citrate to topical testosterone, researchers also found that while both testosterone treatments increased testosterone, those taking topical testosterone experienced a significant decline in sperm concentration. This decline rendered more than half (54%) of men in the study to become oligospermic.
The adverse effects of Enclomiphene have been extensively studied during phase ll & phase III clinical trials. The drug is generally well tolerated with minor side-effects occurring rarely.
Studies have shown that Enclomiphene citrate can boost testosterone production by 1.5-2.5x without dependence, testicular shrinkage, or infertility.
Andropause, or male menopause (“man-opause”) is the name given to the gradual drop in T-levels that typically affect men between the ages of 40 and 55. Low T, also known as hypogonadism, affects an estimated 13 million men in the U.S.
This decline in male hormones is a natural phenomenon; no man can avoid it. Due to lifestyle factors including stress, poor diet, a lack of physical activity and poor sleep habits, more men under 40 are affected by low T levels.
Additionally, men may experience the following symptoms:
Underactive testes cause primary hypogonadism. That’s because they don’t manufacture sufficient levels of T for optimal growth and health. This underactivity can be caused by an inherited trait. It can also be acquired by accident or illness.
Secondary hypogonadism is caused by damage to the pituitary gland or hypothalamus. These parts of the brain control hormone production by the testes.
You may be affected by primary, secondary, or a mixed hypogonadism. Mixed hypogonadism is more common with increased age.
Everyone is different. It can be as quick as 2 weeks or as long as 6 weeks. Our program includes a follow-up at the 6-week mark to check your progress and at that point, we can adjust things based on how you are feeling and responding.
