Boost Your Libido with Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
I met with a young man today who who wanted to know if he could boost his libido with hormone replacement therapy. He was concerned he said about his lack of sex drive.
I told him that waning testosterone is part of aging for any man, unfortunately. Like many other aspects of aging, it’s not always pleasant. One particularly annoying side effect is the lowering of your libido. Lower testosterone levels mean lower libido, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Testosterone hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men can help you get your sexy back, even if you feared it was long gone.
How Testosterone Affects Libido
Testosterone production tends to peak when you turn 30, which is when men are more likely to be most sexually active and at the height of their sexual prime. This valuable hormone is produced by the male gonads, the testicles and the adrenal glands, both stimulated by the pituitary and hypothalamus in the brain. The hormone does far more than simply boost your sex drive, through.
Testosterone also increases sperm production, muscle mass, bone density and maybe even your energy levels. In fact, signs that you may have low levels of the hormone include:
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Disrupted sleep cycles
- General fatigue
- Lowered muscle mass
While lower levels of testosterone are a natural part of getting older, some men find that their levels are lower than the usual age-related drop. Certain lifestyle changes may help raise your levels, including losing weight, sleeping more and cutting back on alcohol. It’s always a good idea to be as healthy as you can be, and this will certainly have an impact on your sex drive.
Men who choose to use testosterone hormone replacement therapy may see some drastic improvements. While weight loss and muscle gain is always welcome, the boost in sex drive is often the desired effect.
How Does Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
Before you can begin your HRT, you’ll need to complete a pre-screening to make sure you’re eligible for the treatment. This usually includes a blood test and a consultation to determine your needs.
The only type of testosterone replacement therapy that is safe is one that is bio-identical to the hormone that your body produces. You will be administered the hormone in a safe way and should begin to notice changes within a short period of time after beginning treatments.
While results vary, you may notice that you have more energy for sex and other areas of your life. If you’ve suffered from erectile dysfunction, you may also find that this happens less regularly, and you’re very likely to see a big boost in libido. Not only will you want sex more often physically, but you’ll actually enjoy it more. Many men also see an increase in their sperm count, making them more fertile.
Testosterone hormone replacement therapy is not for everyone, but if you’re over the age of 50 and suffering from the effects of low testosterone, it may be time to look into the treatment. Imagine your life with a robust sex drive, plenty of energy to fulfill it, and fewer impotence issues. HRT can change the way you live — and the way you enjoy sex.
Aging doesn’t have to mean a significant drop in your sex drive. Done the right way it is possible to boost your libido. If you’re dealing with the symptoms of low testosterone levels, don’t hesitate to get help. Your life can easily be improved with a simple treatment that has many benefits in addition to increased.
