Is there such a thing? Well as men get older their testosterone levels do indeed drop. The decline is steady for most men but it in some can be sharp. Low testosterone can be associated not only with low libido and less hard erection, it can also mean you have less ‘drive’ and have fatigue, loss of muscle mass and rapid hair loss. In some men, a low testosterone can occur with other hormonal diseases.
A simple blood test can be done to measure your testosterone — and the results discreetly discussed with you. If your testosterone in low a simple gel of testosterone can be used daily to improve matters.
What if my testosterone isn’t low but I’m still having issues with sex.
