Correlation at best: Men's sexual functioning (incl. Libido, erectile function) is based a host of influences (e.g., blood flow, hormones, physical shape, attraction, emotional intimacy). Soy intake, according to recent literature reviews (see messina 2010 in fertility and sterility), has little effect on male human hormones. Reach out today! see your doctor, share your concerns & ask about testosterone testing.
