Low Hormone Lead to Decreased Sex Drive and Desire
Low testosterone often leads to a decreased sex drive. Although it is the dominant hormone in men, testosterone also plays a significant role in women. Contrary to popular belief, low libido is not related to the frequency of sexual activity or the amount of satisfaction achieved. Instead, it is determined by the body’s signal indicating sexual desire. This signal declines with age due to the body’s decreased production of testosterone.
The natural loss of testosterone, or low testosterone, may be linked to the following conditions, each of which contributes to loss of libido:
- Metabolic syndrome
- Endothelial dysfunction

Testosterone, Sex Drive, and Desire
It’s not something we like to talk about; however, loss of libido or sex drive is a more common condition then you would think. One in five men don’t fell the drive to have sex! That goes against the common image society paints of men as sex-driven machines with only one thing on their mind. This not only affects women: approximately 30% of women aged 18–59 suffer from a decreased sex drive.
Low libido can bring more stress to a relationship than any types of sexual dysfunction. It’s one thing if your partner wants to have sex with you but is physically incapable; it’s a whole other story when they have a low sex drive or decreased sexual desire and are completely disinterested in sex. A sudden loss of intimacy due to decreased sexual desire can create a huge amount of tension. Your partner might feel that your loss of sex drive is a result of something they did, and even you may question the source of this decreased libido.
Contrary to popular belief, a low sex drive is not related to the frequency with which you have sex or the satisfaction achieved through sex. It is more related to your body signaling that it wants to be sexual (arousal) then you acting on that signal. This signal, sexual desire or libido, naturally declines with age. Much of this is due to a decrease in the body’s natural production of testosterone.
Testosterone plays a key role in sex drive, and it should always be the first consideration when you suspect that your libido is beginning to decrease. If you notice your vigor is not what it once was, you are doing yourself a disservice by not measuring your testosterone levels. Of course, other variables may come into play such as stress, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, influences from your peers, etc.; although low testosterone may not be the main cause of your loss of sex drive, it is likely a contributing factor. If it is playing a role, we can help you fix it.
The natural loss of testosterone is also linked to many other conditions that can exacerbate your loss of libido, including metabolic syndrome, obesity, endothelial dysfunction, and diabetes. A medical examination is the best way to determine what is going on. You don’t have to learn to live with your low libido or decreasing sex drive.
