Low Testosterone and Sex Drive: Testosterone Might Be the Answer


When you’re suffering from Low T, you’re often plagued by a variety of awful symptoms. Gaining weight, feeling tired, being cranky all the time—these are only a few of the things that get men down when their testosterone is abnormal.

But one of the biggest problems with Low T is the one no one wants to talk about, the one you and your partner pretend doesn’t exist. The problem that hits your self esteem and ego harder than all the other ones combined.

If you’ve forgotten what it’s like to have a healthy sex drive, you know what I’m talking about.

It’s no secret that low levels of testosterone and sex drive are closely linked. It’s no secret that millions of men suffer from this degrading and discouraging condition. It’s no secret that both men and women suffer this issue in silence while their partners suffer silently next to them. It can even lead to assumptions and suspicions that can destroy relationships.

What you might not know is that this problem can be remedied for some with testosterone replacement therapy.

Thinking About Testosterone and Sex Drive Differently

When we think about problems with men’s sex drive, the issue of erectile dysfunction often comes up. This embarrassing problem is something most men would rather forget, but, when you’re ready to deal with it, testosterone is often the last recommended fix.

Instead, a doctor might recommend a pill like viagra. While this may address the symptom, if the function of gaining erections is intact, it ignores the root cause. No one wants to have to take a pill every time they want to be intimate with their partner, and even drugs that last much longer are still just that—drugs that hide a deeper issue.

For women the problem can be even worse. There is no physical proof to point to. And, there are fewer treatment options. What’s more, most hormone replacement for women only seeks to normalize estrogen and/or progesterone levels, leaving testosterone untouched and still deficient. This increased estrogen dominance can worsen the issue of a decreased sex drive.

What if instead of relying on prescription drugs that interrupt normal intimacy and just mask underlying problems, you could find a treatment for your sex drive issues that also addressed all your other symptoms, like exhaustion, depression, and weight gain? What if testosterone and sex drive are so closely linked that taking one could fix the other?

We want you to know that it’s possible.

Testosterone is often referred to as the male sex hormone, however, it is a vital hormone for both men and women.  It’s responsible for a wide range of effects in the body, the most obvious of which is sex drive. Testosterone and sex drive are inherently linked, in both men and women, and nothing depletes your biologic desire for intimacy quite low testosterone. While erectile dysfunction can be a result of other issues, only a blood test will tell you if your sex drive issues are a result of low testosterone.

Our simple blood test and thorough evaluation can help you define what the real problem is—testosterone or otherwise.
