Women and men both face changes in sexual health and libido throughout their lifespans. Most of society is familiar with the term “menopause” and associate it with the decrease in hormones that women experience after their primary childbearing years. Less talked about, but just as real, men can experience a similar decline called “andropause.” Both may develop a marked decrease in sex drive, hair loss, and mood changes.
Women may have pain with intercourse, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, issues with memory and concentration, skin changes, anxiety and trouble with temperature regulation, and increased risk for osteoporosis.
Andropause is primarily associated with a decrease in testosterone. It is estimated that testosterone decreases by about 10% every year, starting at age 30. There is no reason to wait to seek treatment. Men may find they have difficulty getting or maintaining an erection, experience lack of energy, depression, irritability, loss of strength or muscle mass, increased body fat (especially around the abdomen), and even hot flashes.
These changes may be caused by lifestyle or physiological decline and imbalance. We offer a variety of treatments to bring your hormones back into balance and restore optimal sexual wellness and libido.
