Since my treatment my sex drive is lower, why does this happen?

Changed hormones?: A drop in testosterone will lower sex drive (in both men and women). Also, much of sex drive is psychological, so any changes in happiness or stress will alter sex drive. Your question was not clear, so please send in another question to healthtap, and include some details, so our medical experts will be able to better answer your concerns. Thanks!

Raising low levels: Some men can't make enough testosterone. For them, testosterone replacement therapy can have a dramatic impact on improving their quality of life. Intramuscular shots of testosterone are one way of increasing low levels. If the levels were too low, the shots can improve insomnia, mental clarity, strength, libido and many other issues. Too much can lead to serious medical problems.

Not many: Unless you are having a specific deficiency, the only thing you can do try to allow your body to make more testosterone is eat a balanced healthy diet. There is no food that will force the testicles to make testosterone. Zinc deficiency may cause low testosterone but it is rare.

How does sexual libido change in women with age?

Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Waxs young,wanes old: Libido "waxes"(pre-menopausally) with lubrication and desire and "wanes" post-menopausally due to a decline of testosterone which comprises 2% of women's natural hormones. Some women never notice any changes in libido as the adrenal glands are the main sources of their testosterone rather than the declining ovary post-menopausally.
