Most people take it for granted that sex drive decreases with age, even though sexual fulfillment and vitality are essential components of your overall health and wellness. You don’t have to tolerate issues related to your sexuality, such as a low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness, etc. Thanks to modern medical science, we now understand that hormone imbalances are at the root of most age-related sexual concerns.
Hormone imbalances: the root cause of age-related sexual dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is a broad term that can refer to various issues. It can be defined as a difficulty or inability to initiate or maintain sexual arousal and activity. It can also manifest as a lack of libido or interest in sex, difficulty becoming aroused, difficulty achieving orgasm, or pain during sex. While sexual dysfunction can affect people of any age, it is more common in older adults because of the gradual loss of sex hormones.
As you age, your hormone levels begin to decline, leading to various symptoms associated with sexual dysfunction. Low testosterone levels can lead to a lack of libido, difficulty becoming aroused, and difficulty achieving orgasm. Low levels of estrogen can cause dryness and thinning of the vaginal tissues, which can lead to pain during sex. The good news is that hormone imbalances can be corrected with hormone therapy.
Signs and symptoms of low testosterone in men:
- Decreased libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decrease in testicle size
- Infertility issues
- Sexual dysfunction
It’s no secret that testosterone is the hormone responsible for sex drive in men. Low testosterone, or “low T,” can cause noticeable changes in your body and lifestyle, making you less interested in sex. Low testosterone can also affect your physiological health, emotional balance, energy levels, etc. Testosterone replacement therapy can restore your optimal testosterone levels and help you feel youthful again.
Signs and symptoms of menopause in women:
- Low libido
- Hot flashes
- Vaginal dryness
- Sexual dysfunction
During menopause, a woman’s body goes through some changes. One of the most talked-about changes is the shift in hormone levels, which can wreak havoc on your sex drive and overall sense of well-being. The decrease in sex hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, can lead to a decrease in libido. It can also make sex a frustrating or painful endeavor. We offer personalized hormone therapy to help you reclaim your sexual vitality.
Sexual enhancement with hormone therapy
If you are experiencing a low libido or sex drive, hormone therapy can help. We perform personalized hormone therapy using bioidentical hormone pellets. When placed underneath your skin, bioidentical hormone pellets release a steady stream of the chosen sex hormones, such as testosterone and estrogen, into your body. Unlike traditional hormone therapy, hormone pellets release a steady stream of hormones over weeks and months, helping you maintain stable hormone levels.
We primarily use bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic hormones because they resemble the cellular structure of the hormones produced by your body. Since they’re identical to natural hormones, they’re easily metabolized by your body, leading to fewer side effects. Bioidentical hormone therapy addresses the root cause of your sexual dysfunction and low sex drive, thus helping you regain your sexual vitality and desire.
Why pellet hormone therapy?
Pellet hormone therapy is an effective and safe way to restore hormone balance in the body. It offers numerous health benefits, including improved energy levels, improved mood, better sleep, and improved sexual function. The therapy works by releasing a steady dose of hormones over a period of time, which is why it is often referred to as “slow release” therapy.
The therapy has been studied extensively in recent years and the results have been promising. A study published in the journal Maturitas found that pellet hormone therapy was associated with improved sexual function, increased libido, and improved energy levels in both men and women. Another study, published in the journal Menopause, found that the therapy was effective in reducing the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings.
In addition to the health benefits, pellet hormone therapy is also convenient. The pellets are inserted just beneath the skin, usually in the hip or buttocks, and then release hormones slowly over a period of time. This means that patients don’t have to worry about taking daily doses of hormones, as the pellets do all the work for them.
