Low Testosterone & Low Sex Drive Symptoms
Low testosterone levels can lead to erectile dysfunction. This can affect your sex life and overall mental and physical health. Erectile dysfunction is difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. Because ED has many different causes, it can be difficult to correctly identify.
One of the most common causes of ED is reduced blood flow to the penis. This can be caused by high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and others. ED can also be caused by psychological issues and stressors, such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and more. Because erections depend on testosterone, many patients seek testosterone replacement therapy for ED. However, some men can have healthy erections despite testosterone levels below average.
Low T levels have been linked to similar conditions that also affect ED, such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
We’ll go over symptoms of erectile dysfunction, low testosterone levels, and the types of therapy and treatment we offer at BioRestore Health. For more information, schedule an appointment at our Nashua, NH office.
Sometimes called “impotence,” ED is defined as the inability to get and maintain an erection that is adequate for satisfactory sexual intercourse. Some may also note ejaculatory dysfunction, which is the inability to orgasm or lack of emission, which is a decrease in the volume of fluid expressed during orgasm.
Low Sex Drive
Also known as “libido,” a sex drive can be decreased by low testosterone levels. One of the more common symptoms of having decreased testosterone and andropause is to have a decreased sexual desire.
There are many symptoms of low testosterone levels. And they vary greatly between each patient. You may be experiencing one, many, all, or even none of these symptoms, even if you have low T levels. Some of the symptoms include:
