Concerned About Low Libido After 50? Here's What You Can Do About It

It can be frustrating and embarrassing to think about how sex used to be the highlight of your week, or even each day. But aging can change the way your body works, and your libido may not be what it once was. This doesn’t have to mean your days of a thrilling, satisfying sex life are over.

At The Male Method, in Mobile, Alabama, our compassionate team of sexual health experts can help raise your libido, increase arousal, and achieve strong erections when desired. We have a variety of methods to revive low sex drive and restore you to your original virile self. 

Causes of low libido after 50

There are many reasons your sex drive may decrease with age. As the average male reaches 50 years of age, testosterone production can begin to diminish, lowering sex drive and even making it hard to achieve or maintain an erection.

Problems with your endocrine system can cause your male sex hormones to tank, leading to a lowered libido. Sleep apnea has also been linked to lower testosterone.

Other causes for low libido include:

Stress or depression

It’s not uncommon for men suffering from high stress levels or depression to experience a slump in libido. In most cases, treating the underlying cause can help restore normal sexual function. 


Certain medications can negatively impact your libido. Common culprits include antidepressants, antihistamines, and specific blood pressure medications.

Vascular system damage

High blood pressure and diabetes can damage your vascular system, making it hard for you to get or maintain an erection.

Solutions for low libido

At The Male Method, our goal is to find solutions for low sex drive to make you feel virile once again. There are many more solutions out there aside from your standard blue pills. 

We offer testosterone therapy to correct hormonal imbalances. If you’re also experiencing erectile dysfunction, we can help by prescribing medication that can be directly injected into the shaft of your penis to help you get a strong erection.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy

We also provide a safe, non-invasive way to boost your sex drive with sound wave therapy. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy, or ESWT, uses energy from acoustic sound waves to improve blood flow to your penis, encourage creation of new blood vessels and help you get and maintain erections when you desire them all without the use of pills!

There’s a safe and effective alternative to pills when it comes to achieving satisfaction in your sex life. Contact our Mobile, Alabama, office today by calling 251-283-0330 or making an appointment online.
