Libido Reduction Symptoms – How to Improve Low Libido in Men
Definition of Low Libido and Accompanying Symptoms
Low libido in men is defined as a lack of interest in sex, the inability to get and maintain an erection, or a general decrease in sexual activity. Other symptoms that may go along with low libido in men include decrease in morning erections, prostate changes, waking multiple times in the night to urinate, difficulty with starting and stopping your urine stream, dribbling, shortness of breath, depression, anxiety, stress, moodiness, irritability, inner unrest, memory loss, fatigue, dental/gum problems, constipation, headaches and other. Health problems which might contribute to a decrease in men’s libido include high blood pressure, obesity, poor nutrition, inactivity and inflexibility, poor circulation, hormonal changes such as low testosterone, and cortisol and adrenal problems related to prolonged stress on the body.
These symptoms can occur in men as early as their 20’s and 30’s. This is a problem that should be addressed without delay, as these symptoms are almost always a barometer to something else malfunctioning in your system. If a hormone imbalance is detected, typically low testosterone, the benefits to the body of restoring balance are remarkable. Correcting a deficiency in testosterone protects a man’s immune system, his cardiovascular system and his prostate. Achieving proper testosterone levels are also helpful as a prostate cancer preventative.
