Are you accustomed to an active sex life but find that your sex drive is less then what it normally is? Or, are you having trouble keeping an erection? Many men between the ages of 40-55 experience low libido or erectile dysfunction in part because of low testosterone levels.
Sex drive in men starts with the release of testosterone which stimulates the receptors in the brain to release nitric oxide. Nitric oxide in turn allows blood flow for an erection. Low testosterone levels common in andropause result in reduced levels of the hormones, which stimulate the nerves in the brain and induce sexual desire and erectile function. The same decreased testosterone which reduces libido or sex drive also affects the ability to develop and sustain an erection. In some cases, the sexual desire is there but men are incapable of an erection.
Low sex drive can be frustrating for both you and your partner; however, it doesn’t have to be a permanent problem. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) treatment is available to alleviate low libido symptoms.
Coupled with a nutrition and fitness plan, hormone replacement therapy for men is proven to be highly effective in treating low sex drive.
