Stress, fatigue, and underlying health conditions can affect a person’s sex drive. As for men, having a low libido can prevent a man from engaging in sex, which in turn can affect his relationship with his partner.
Similarly, low libido can also affect women, especially when approaching menopause, during menopause, and after pregnancy. This issue can be equally distressing for the woman and her partner.
One of the latest effective treatments for low libido is bioidentical hormone therapy. Let’s take a look at how this treatment works for men and for women, and how Dr. Anbarasu can help you get back to feeling like yourself again.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men
Due to the normal aging process or existing health conditions, a man’s testosterone levels can drop. As a result of low levels of testosterone (low-T), men can experience low libido as well as muscle loss, hair loss, weight gain, memory loss, irritability, and sleep problems.
The first thing that Dr. Anbarasu will do is talk to you about your symptoms, overall health, occupation, diet, and lifestyle. Low libido is rarely just a singular physical condition. It is not uncommon for men with low libido to also experience erectile dysfunction (ED).
The next thing Dr. Anbarasu may do is to test your testosterone levels to determine if it’s within the normal range. Low-T levels are generally under 300. If your symptoms and test results are consistent with low testosterone levels, Dr. Anbarasu may prescribe bioidentical hormone therapy along with lifestyle changes.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women
For female patients with low libido, Dr. Anbarasu usually asks about your symptoms and conducts a pelvic exam to determine whether the cause is physical or not. Genital issues can contribute to the absence of interest in sex.
Dr. Anbarasu will also check your hormone levels to see if they fall within the normal range. In addition to low estrogen levels, underlying health conditions such as diabetes and thyroid disorders can cause low libido in women.
If you have other imbalances or high cholesterol, Dr. Anbarasu will address it as part of the comprehensive and individualized treatment she provides. If your test results confirm low levels of estrogen as the cause of low libido, Dr. Anbarasu may recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women, which has been demonstrated to be very effective.
