Hormones and libido: what’s the connection?

It is no secret that hormones play a key role in the human body, regulating everything from appetite and sleep to mood and sex drive. The sex hormones testosterone and estrogen are responsible for the development of sexual features and also have a hand in regulating the libido. So, it stands to reason that when these hormones are out of balance, they can impact your sex drive.

Hormone imbalances can be caused by various factors, including stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, menopause, and aging. If you’re suffering from low libido because of hormone imbalances, we can perform hormone optimization to restore your sexual vitality. Our sexual enhancement solutions involve hormone pellet therapy to supplement your body’s natural production of hormones, helping you feel like yourself again.

Effects of low testosterone on male libido

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone responsible for developing male sexual characteristics, such as facial hair and a deep voice. It also stimulates the production of sperm and is vital for a healthy libido. Low testosterone levels in men can lead to low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and fertility issues. However, our testosterone therapy in Ocala can help you recover your sexual vitality.

Effects of menopause on female libido

Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone responsible for the development of breasts and the onset of menstruation. It also regulates the libido, maintains vaginal lubrication, and keeps the vaginal tissue healthy. Menopause is a period marked by hormone imbalances and fluctuations in the level of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone, which can lead to low libido, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, and other symptoms.
