Finding that Mood Again
Why decreased libido is such a common problem among men, and what you can do about correcting the issue.
This may be one of the most common concerns associated with age, but you’d never know it if you relied on word of mouth. This is one of those things that many men prefer not discussing—not even with their doctors, which is an unfortunate reality that means that many men will struggle with a decrease in their libido for much longer than is actually necessary.
A Common Concern
The bottom line is that a lot of men experience low sex drive, and it isn’t always something that comes later on in life. For some men decreased sex drive is one of the first signs of age, but there are actually a series of other physical and psychological reasons as to why you could be experiencing this in your life. While troubling, low sex drive isn’t something you have to cope with indefinitely. Hormone therapy, particularly treatment through pellet therapy, can significantly improve your quality of life by restoring sex drive back to previous levels.
If you are having difficulty getting in the mood, there is no reason to be worried or embarrassed. Take action and talk with a doctor familiar in hormone decline. New York State is filled with men who are too nervous or embarrassed to say anything about this real medical concern. Do yourself a favor and be proactive. The sooner you talk to your doctor, the faster you’ll be feeling more like yourself again.
Understanding Libido Changes
There is a long list of potential contributing factors that could be influencing your libido. This includes:
- Hormone levels, particularly testosterone
- Amount of exercise
- Alcohol consumption
- Drug use
- Prescription medications
- Anxiety and depression
Hormone fluctuations may be the most common reason for decreased sex drive. This is especially true when mood changes are rather sudden, and libido may come or go before being generally down. Of men over the age of 45, about 4 out of every 10 will have low testosterone, and this could be what causes your own discomfort. Your doctor can determine if hormone changes is the reason for your concern through a series of simple tests. Once confirmed, hormone replacements through pellet therapy can be used to stabilize natural hormone levels, thereby restoring your mood to your former healthy self.
