Everyone deserves a satisfying sex life. But if your sex life isn’t what it used to be, hormonal imbalance could be to blame.
Testosterone is the primary male hormone, and it controls male sexual characteristics and reproduction. Testosterone levels vary throughout life and start to steadily decline as you get older.
Low testosterone is a common problem, and it’s linked to low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and more symptoms that can seriously affect your sex life. The good news is that you don’t have to settle for an unsatisfactory sex life — male hormone replacement therapy could help you feel like yourself again.
Eric Seaman, MD, and our team specialize in men’s health and wellness. Hormone replacement therapy for men rebalances testosterone levels to enhance your sex life, and we can help you decide if it’s right for you.
Low testosterone can limit your sex life
Your testes create testosterone, which is a chemical that influences numerous bodily functions. Testosterone is one of the main factors in male sexual function, and testosterone levels fluctuate over time.
Testosterone levels typically peak around age 18. Testosterone starts declining slowly after that and more rapidly after age 30. It’s normal for testosterone to drop over the years, but some men suffer from testosterone levels that are too low.
Men with low testosterone (also called hypogonadism) may notice changes in the way they feel and how they perform in the bedroom.
Common symptoms include:
Some of these symptoms can be embarrassing and frustrating. They can impact your relationship with your significant other and contribute to low self-esteem.
Along with changes in your sex life, low testosterone can affect other aspects of your life. Other common symptoms include fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, and changes in body composition.
