Getting Your Swagger Back

Celebrating on the beachBy admin

Just because you are a man over 40, it doesn’t mean you can’t feel like you are 20 again! The topic of men and low libido might make you feel uncomfortable, but there is no reason you can’t get help. You might also feel it’s hard to accomplish, since now you tire more easily and have a hard time losing weight. You may have even lost your motivation, and your passion in the bedroom. Still, there is a lot of hope to improve all these symptoms!

The Connection Between Testosterone And Low Libido

A man’s lifestyle including his diet, smoking and drinking habits are known to affect sexual desire. A healthy and happy relationship with your partner is also vital for a healthy sex life. High levels of estrogen in men can also have a negative impact on male sexual desire, as do low levels of testosterone.

Testosterone has a strong effect on sex drive in men and low levels can inhibit erectile function. In a man’s brain, there exist testosterone stimulating nerves. Sex drive in men starts with the release of testosterone which stimulates the receptors in the brain to release nitric oxide. Nitric oxide in turn relaxes the muscles of the penis to allow blood flow for an erection. Low testosterone levels result in reduced levels of the hormone available to stimulate the nerves in the brain and induce sexual desire and in turn erectile function.

Why Do Testosterone Levels Decrease In Men?

Because the testosterone levels decline over years, the symptoms are often dismissed as part of aging or due to lack of exercise, poor nutrition or excess weight, missing the underlying common denominator.

Today’s toxic environment full of plastics, pollutants and pesticides, coupled with poor nutrition are speeding it up. A common cause of low testosterone in men is stress and exposure to environmental contaminants such as bisphenol-A, which is a component in many plastic water bottles.

Even men in their 30s can start feeling “old, ” and hormone depletion is often the root of the problem. For example, during the past few decades, average levels of testosterone, the hormone responsible for your “maleness, ” have been declining at a substantially faster rate than aging alone can explain.

Nothing Kills Libido Quite Like Stress

You mention that you have had health issues and he is under stress in grad school. Trust me, I know, nothing kills libido like stress. If both of you are stressed out for various reasons then a period of low or no sex-drive is not all that abnormal. It will pass when that which is stressing you each out does.
Three months is a long time, though, so I would suggest trying something realxing to get you both out of your funk. The Bed and Breakfast was a good idea, but obviously you two need to come up with a second plan that avoids both wine and abundant food since they were the downfall of your last effort
