How Your Sex Life Changes as You Age (And What Hormones Have to Do with It)

There’s no way around it. Our sex lives will change as we age. We’ll have sex much less than we did in our 20s and 30s, even if we wish for more. We may be faced with a health condition that affects our sex drive or performance.

Or, maybe our partner is ill. Perhaps we’re under a lot of stress at work or even at home. There are so many factors that can affect our sex lives as we age. Hormones have a lot to do with it. For men, this means testosterone.

At Male Method in Mobile, AL, Lancaster, PA, and Pensacola, FL, we specialize in male sexual health. We want to help you stay sexually active for as long as possible. It will help you feel more connected mentally and physically to your partner, but it also provides health benefits.

How sex changes as you age

As you get older, you may have a lower sex drive. Although this is norma, it’s important to still have sex once in a while. If you’re in a long-term relationship, you should always communicate with your partner about what’s going on mentally and physically with both of you. For example, if you’re having trouble getting or keeping an erection, don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed. It happens and we can help!

Hormones play a significant role in male sexual function, helping to create sperm and keep you mentally and physically strong. It’s normal for testosterone levels to drop as you age, but some men have low testosterone at any age.

Low testosterone can make you more tired and moody, sad or depressed, and even affect your ability to concentrate. It can also lead to decreased muscle mass and a loss of strength. If you’re not feeling your best, you may not even want to have sex.

Here are some other ways low testosterone affects your sex life:

What you can do about low sex drive

Improving your overall health through diet and exercise, quitting smoking, and cutting back on alcohol consumption may help improve your sex drive. If that’s not helping and you’ve lost interest in sex, let our experts at Male Method help. We’ll find out what’s causing your low sex drive and create a treatment plan for you.

If low testosterone levels are the cause, we can provide testosterone therapy. We can also prescribe medications such as antidepressants, if needed.
