As men age, their bodies decrease the amount of testosterone produced. On the one hand, this is a natural occurrence and your body doesn’t need as much of the hormone after a certain age. However, testosterone production often drops to insufficient levels as men get into their 40s and 50s. This causes a broad range of changes and often results in sexual dysfunctions.
As a result of insufficient testosterone, men often experience conditions such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and slow sperm counts. In addition to inhibiting sexual performance, the symptoms of low testosterone can also cause men to feel reduced sexual drives and low self-esteem. The effects of poor hormone production can affect how men interact with people and how they view themselves, which means their relationships are likely to be affected as well.
Fortunately, we have new methods for treating poor testosterone production. While there are medications that target specific symptoms, such as erectile dysfunction, targeting the underlying cause is the best way to treat these symptoms. Clinics specializing in men’s sexual health can administer hormone supplements that help drive up the testosterone count in the body. This can prompt the body to produce more testosterone to maintain a steady supply.
Additional services provided at a men’s sexual health clinic may include teaching you how to take better care of your body. For instance, the primary benefits of men’s kegel exercises include the strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles. This can help with sexual function and bladder control. You may learn other exercises to help you strengthen more muscles and help you stimulate hormone production. This is an option you would have to address with your caregiver.
The goal of any sexual health clinic is to restore you to a state of peak performance. In most cases, this can be done naturally through hormone supplements, exercise, and other lifestyle changes. When you get the help you need from specialists trained in treating men’s sexual health problems, you can alleviate the problems that have affected you. This can help you feel better about yourself and help you save your relationships.
