Valentine’s Day Lacking Romance? Hormones Levels may be to Blame
For many couples, Valentine’s Day is a reminder of a lackluster love life and decreased sex drive. While many believe aging is to blame, there could be an underlying medical issue that can be diagnosed and treated. Decreased hormone levels in both men and women can be the problem and can be addressed through Bio- Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT.
Symptoms like a decreased libido naturally occur as people age, according to FitMed Partners Dr. Bright McConnell, III. He states, “As both men and women age, their hormone levels decrease, and an immediate result is a decreased libido.” While for women this is a well known part of menopause, it affects men as well. They lose testosterone and experience a drop in hormone levels and often experience a loss of energy, decreased sex drive and can even experience erectile dysfunction.
While aging is a natural process, BHRT is a natural solution to help counter the effects. A simple blood test can pinpoint the problem and can put patients on the right track. States Dr. McConnell, “Patients come in very frustrated with their changing bodies and the aging process. Once diagnosed, there is a natural treatment for these decreased hormone levels. Through Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, people can restore their hormones to clinically appropriate levels. They will see improvements in libido, memory, energy, sleep, sex drive as well as weight loss and improved heart health.”
