Understanding Low Sex Drive in Men
Many men experience a below-normal sex drive during andropause. What’s below normal? We tell our clients this: if where it is now isn’t working for you, it’s below normal.
Lowered sex drive can be attributed to Hormone imbalance. It is almost always the culprit when it comes to low libido in men. Low Testosterone is also a common factor because it’s what a man’s sex drive is fueled by. Similar to gas in your tank. Without enough, you simply won’t have a strong libido.
Elevated Estrogen is real- men have estrogen, too. You need a little for heart and bone health, but too much estrogen is a bad thing for men. Basically speaking, kills a man’s sex drive. And yet elevated estrogen is common in men with hormone imbalance, but reversible with hormone treatment.
Prolactin also contributes, while less common. Prolactin makes women want to hug and nurture their children. In men, it may make you want to hug your significant other, but will definitely kill your desire for sexual activity.
Lowered sex drive is the most common symptom so don’t feel alone or at fault. We can treat your low sex drive from the root of the causes with HRT. At PeakPerforMAX, we understand the issues and reasons that cause your symptoms. We tailor protocols for each patient with a variety of hormone replacement therapies (HRT) to get you back to feeling yourself again, even a younger, more energized self! We monitor your progress with lab work, doctor check-in’s and regiment adjustments to ensure your max benefit of our expertise and your life. Hormones are complicated but our therapies and process is not.
