While it may be somewhat common for a woman’s libido to be lacking from time to time due to hormonal changes in the body, they may not know what to think when their partner says they’re “not in the mood”. For some men their libido remains strong well into their 70’s and 80’s. But when certain life situations arise, such as problems at work, stressful home life, preoccupation with finances or even a medical condition all bets are off.
Men suffering from moderate to severe depression can suffer from a low sex drive. Some men don’t even realize they are feeling down until it is brought to their attention; however, they may be aware of their lack of sexual desire. The twist to this issue is that the lack of sexual desire and possible inadequate functioning only increases depressed feelings, thus leading into a vicious unfulfilled cycle.
On the other end of the spectrum is a little fact, sexual desire and drive decreases progressively with age, meaning, it’s not so uncanny for a man’s testosterone to decrease as the years go by consequently leaving him not wanting sex. In fact, men lose 1 to 2 percent of testosterone every year beginning at the age of 30. That being said, is there any need to worry about a lack of libido? The answer to this question is…yes!
Men who suffer from a lack of libido, added with sexual dysfunction, breast enlargement, and muscle loss, may be suffering from a condition called hypogonadism. Hypogonadism occurs when the sexual glands produce too little or no hormones, in men these glands are the testes. The cause for this condition can be attributed to an infection, kidney or liver disease, or a recent surgery. If you notice any other related symptoms along with your lack of libido, consult your doctor.
It is important to know that your body weight directly affects testosterone levels too, so make sure you keep your weight in check by exercising and eating a well-balanced diet. There are foods out there that can boost your sex drive as well; try eating fish high in fatty acids like salmon and selenium-rich foods like lean meats and brown rice. Herbal supplements can help as well, add Eleuthero, Saw palmetto and Horny Goat weed into your diet to start promoting your sexual desire today.
Let’s face it guys, sometimes your sexual health suffers, If your libido isn’t up- to- par and you have noticed you are having some other related issues, it’s time to see a doctor. Getting your body back to optimal performance can be as easy as a diet change and adding herbal supplements!
