As a medical doctor I treat men and women in the area of hormone replacement. I spend my day consulting with patients who have lost their sexual desire. In most cases, the loss of libido is a chemical issue; a direct result of the amount of testosterone the body produces. In men, testosterone is produced in the testes, and in women, the ovaries. Our bodies respond to the loss of testosterone with an increasing waist line, poor sleep, loss of muscles, lack of motivation, increase in depression and anxiety.
For women, a decrease in testosterone, occurring up to 10 years before menopause, usually leads to a loss of libido. This is demonstrated through our thoughts, our need to be touched, and in our sudden lack of interest in conversations about sex and in sex itself. In women, the decrease in testosterone usually begins around the age of 40. For men, testosterone levels begin decreasing at the average age of 45. This decrease is referred to as andropause. It is accompanied by the loss of mental clarity, loss of exercise stamina, an increase in abdominal fat, poor sleep and anxiety. Furthermore, it can include a loss in morning erection, decrease in the quality of erection, and a change in the length of time one is able to sustain an erection.
I treat men and women ranging in ages 40-70 who are happily restored to their youthful libido with the addition of bioidentical hormone therapy. These treatments involve inserting rice-sized pellets into the hip every 4-6 months. There are almost no side effects and they greatly improve quality of life and relationships. Before seeking a medical doctor, I encourage you to try regular aerobics, losing weight, and taking the supplement DIM (di-indolemethane; causes a decrease in estrone which is the hormone that binds up and inactivates testosterone).
