Can hormone therapy be used to treat penis disorders?

Hormone therapy may be used to treat some cases of penis disorders that are caused by low hormone levels. Several genetic conditions may lead to low levels of testosterone, which can lead to erection problems. In those cases, testosterone supplements - which are often available in patches and topical creams - may be used to replace hormones that the body is lacking naturally. However, most penis disorders aren't caused by hormone problems, so hormone therapy wouldn't be an effective treatment option. Talk to your doctor to determine what kind of treatment is right for your condition.
