Increased Sex Drive
Do You Need More Passion?
Low testosterone levels often create a feeling of fatigue and low energy. This typically results in mood swings and a reduced interest in physical activity.
These symptoms have a large impact on your confidence levels. When you feel constantly tired, you are less likely to go out and socialize, and less likely to try and take care of your body leading to an increase in body fat. Putting on weight and losing muscle mass can really put a damper on confidence. It can make people shy and feel like they need to avoid social situations because they dislike the way they look.
While these are big issues, the largest blow to anyone’s confidence is when it comes to sexual performance and libido. Decreases in sexual desire and difficulty with sexual performance can affect relationships, lead to depression, and swiftly kill any confidence that you once had.

The BioTE® Method of Hormone Optimization
There are many factors that can reduce sexual desire: depression, medications, illness, worries, financial pressures, marriage troubles, young children in the home… and not to be overlooked, testosterone.
By the time women reach menopause, their testosterone levels are about half of what they were in their 20s. Men’s testosterone levels decrease by about 1% per year and then drop faster as they approach older age.
BHRT for men and women can help restore the hormone to a level that will push the sexual accelerator. But how often you feel like ruffling the sheets is tied to so many complex lifestyle factors you must look at the entire package of well being that you are trying to improve.
Exercise, fatigue, sleep deprivation, stress, and obesity — cannot be overlooked when trying to restore, or maintain, sex drive. And that is where hormonal balance as a whole is the key to increasing your desire.
As we have said, an imbalance in hormones can impact both men’s and women’s bodies—as well as their mental and behavioral health. Testosterone levels affect physical characteristics like muscle mass, energy, and of course, sexual potency. While these things may not seem to affect your mental health directly, when people develop poor relationships with their bodies their mental state suffers.
Low self-esteem not only causes negative feelings of sadness and anger, but can create serious body image issues. That is why when we look at the five things that proper hormonal balance influences it is easy to understand how it affects your well being.

As if we need another reason to keep one’s libido in good working order: Without it, a relationship will suffer. And for most of us our well being is strongly correlated with our relationships.
The Cornerstone Of Our Existence
Sex drive is usually described in general terms as libido. The hormone most closely associated with libido for both men and women is testosterone. Low levels of testosterone are often tied to a low libido. Over your lifetime, testosterone levels are at their highest in your early to mid twenties, after which they slowly begin to decline.
As sex drive decreases with age a loss of libido can be directly related to other conditions associated with low testosterone or hormonal imbalance. These symptoms include obesity, depression, and a lack of energy. For women with major life changes, such as pregnancy, menopause or illness the loss can be dramatic.
For both men and women desire for sex is based on a complex interaction of many things affecting intimacy, including physical and emotional well-being, beliefs, lifestyle, and your current relationship. Many of the conditions associated with hormonal imbalance create both physical and mental barriers to experiencing a fulfilling sex life.
