Low Sex Drive
What is low sex drive?
Anyone can have a low sex drive or low libido, and it doesn’t always mean there’s a problem. Some people aren’t that interested in sex and are perfectly happy to remain that way. However, if your sex drive is lower than you’d like, or you’ve experienced a loss of libido, it can have a significant impact on your well-being and may be an indication of an underlying health problem.
What causes low sex drive?
There can be physical issues, psychological problems, or sometimes a combination of the two affecting your sex drive. Common causes include:
- Low testosterone
- Certain prescription medications
- Too little exercise
- Too much exercise
- Excess alcohol consumption
- Drug abuse
- Relationship problems
If you’re experiencing low sex drive and it’s causing you distress, find out what the problem is by making an appointment to talk to one of the specialists at Vitality Center of Charlotte.
How is low sex drive treated?
It’s vital to understand what’s causing the problem with your sex drive to treat it appropriately. To achieve this, your Vitality Center of Charlotte provider runs tests and performs an exam. There could be several factors contributing to your low sex drive, which all need addressing for optimal results.
Low testosterone, or low T, is a common contributing factor in low sex drive, as testosterone is the hormone that regulates sexual function. A blood test can determine whether you have low testosterone levels, in which case your team can start you on a course of testosterone replacement therapy.
Taking testosterone replacement medication is simple. You and your provider can choose the best option from:
- Topical gel
- Skin patch
- Mouth patch
These forms of testosterone replacement therapy all release testosterone into your bloodstream in a controlled, steady way that replaces lost testosterone and keeps levels normal.
If you’ve lost interest in sex, or your sex drive isn’t what it once was, let the compassionate team of experts at Vitality Center of Charlotte help you with your problem. Call the clinic today to schedule a consultation, or book an appointment online.
