What is low libido?
Low libido is a reduction or loss of sexual desire and interest in sex.
In many cases, men experience low libido because their testosterone levels have dropped. Testosterone is the hormone that is mainly responsible for a man's sex drive, and it also influences sperm production, muscle mass, body hair, bone health, and even mood.
Depression or anxiety, stress, relationship concerns, and certain medications can also lead to decreased sexual desire.
Are there treatment options for low libido?
Yes, there are different ways to treat low libido and improve sex drive. You and your doctor will work together to determine the cause of your low sexual desire and determine the best treatment options for you.
Treatment may include lifestyle changes, medication changes, relationship care, and more. In some cases, treatment may involve hormone therapy to increase your levels of testosterone. However, this may not be the right approach for everyone, and it is important to talk to your healthcare provider before beginning any hormone supplement or other medication.
