If you have noticed your sex drive taking a nose dive lately for no apparent reason, then you could be suffering from a hormone imbalance. Low libido is a common symptom in both men and women when hormone levels fall. It is estimated than 20% of men and up to 50% of women will experience a decrease in their libido as a result of hormone imbalance. However, many find that the effects of this can be reversed with hormone therapy and that they can regain their usual sex drive with the appropriate treatment.
Hormones & Libido
When it comes to sex drive, our hormones are very important. The three hormones that are key to a healthy libido are Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone. The levels of these hormones are naturally depleted as we get older and there are a range of external factors that can also have an impact. These include surgical procedures, allergies, certain medications, alcohol, stress and even environmental factors. The good news is that hormone replacement therapy can be hugely successful in restoring the balance thus addressing the issue of low libido.
Treating Low Libido
When a hormone imbalance is identified as the cause of your low libido the next step is to look at treatment options that will help to restore the balance of Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone in your body. One of the most effective treatments is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Not only can re-balancing these hormones in this way help with your sex drive, but you may also reap additional benefits including increased energy, improved mood and a boost in your general well being.
