Hormone Therapy Improves Libido
Hormone therapy improves libido in older women. A recent survey published in the journal Menopause found that older women are less satisfied with sex. Above all, optimized hormones improve libido and many other conditions that affect men and women’s sex lives.
According to the author of the study, Helena Harder, “There is still a stigma around aging and sexuality, and we know that health-care conversations about sex can be difficult for both doctors and patients. Aging, in and of itself, is not a barrier to healthy sexual activity. There are things that can be done to ensure this is maintained”. This includes health-care providers discussing the issue with women, she added.
A survey of almost 4,500 English women found that the number of women regularly having sex and reporting it as enjoyable, declines with age.
The 4 main reasons were:
- Menopause symptoms
- Embarrassment about their bodies
- Lack of libido
- Medical conditions or sexual dysfunction in their partners
These symptoms can be treated with BioTE Hormone Replacement therapy.
1. Symptoms of Menopause
Symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, night sweats, painful intercourse, increased anxiety and irritability. All of these are the result of hormones that are out of balance. As women age, their bodies produce less Estrogen and Testosterone. Our certified BioTE providers specialize in optimizing Estrogen and Testosterone levels to help reverse these symptoms.
2. Poor Body Image
For instance, when Testosterone levels are at the levels of a healthy 25 to 30 year old, amazing changes take place. Increased metabolism helps shed unwanted pounds whiled increased energy levels means more frequent exercise at higher intensities.
3. Lack of Libido
Low testosterone levels is a common reason for the loss of sex drive in women and men. Testosterone is very important to both men and women. Women’s Testosterone levels are actually 10 times higher than their estrogen levels. By optimizing hormone function, both men and women’s libido can increase dramatically.
4. Medical Conditions Experienced by a Partner
Because decreased libido, obesity, cardiovascular disease and joint pain can all affect someone’s ability to be intimate. All of these conditions are regularly and successfully treated with BioTE hormone replacement therapy. Most importantly, BioTE optimized hormones improve libido without the dangerous side effects of synthetic hormones
Unfortunately, many Doctors tell women the changes that happen after menopause are natural and there’s nothing to be done. However, there is a safe option that’s been safely and successfully used for over 80 years to help women (and men) age healthier and live happier.
