Testosterone and the Male Sex Drive

Valentine's Day coupleWhen it comes to sex drive, many men pride themselves on their virility and libido – and that’s precisely why a sudden drop in sex drive can be so unnerving.

A low libido is a common symptom of andropause, which typically occurs in middle-aged men who don’t produce as much testosterone as they did in their younger days.  In addition to a lower libido, andropausal men often experience fatigue, a decrease in muscle mass, and a general sense of lethargy.

Andropausal men may also experience difficulty getting and maintaining an erection.  This can be a frustrating experience for men who have previously enjoyed an active and healthy sexual appetite.

Fortunately, men who are going through andropause don’t have to put up with a low libido.  At the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, Texas, anti-aging expert Dr. Nhi Le can administer testosterone replacement therapy, which can restore your sexual appetite.  In addition to reviving your libido, hormone treatments for andropause can lead to the following benefits:

  • Higher energy levels
  • Greater concentration
  • Improved appetite
  • Boosted moods
  • Greater satisfaction in life
  • Better sleep

Before undergoing testosterone replacement therapy at the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa, Dr. Le will ask you a series of questions to ensure that your hormones are responsible for your low libido.  These questions usually cover:

  • Your diet and fitness routine. As men get older, it’s important for them to maintain a healthy lifestyle that can offset some of the symptoms of andropause, including weight gain, lethargy, and depression.  The healthier you are, the faster your sex drive will get back to normal during treatment.
  • Your smoking and drinking habits. Cigarettes and alcohol can have a significant impact on a man’s libido.  If you smoke and/or drink, Dr. Le may suggest cutting your intake down first before undergoing hormonal treatments.

In addition to determining the role your lifestyle plays in influencing your sex drive. Dr. Le will perform blood work to determine your testosterone and estrogen levels.  Dr. Le will then administer a precise hormonal treatment based on the results of your blood work.

You don’t have to accept a lower libido.  Instead, discover how testosterone therapy treatments at the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa can make you feel younger, healthier, and ready for sex again! Call (361) 576-9100 to learn more!
