Testosterone is a hormone and it is present in both men and women. However, it is more prevalent in men, where it is found in much higher levels than women resulting in it being called the male hormone. This is a hormone that affects the lives, health, and emotions of men in a variety of different ways. This hormone is generally produced in higher levels during puberty but starts to reduce in levels with age.
If you suffer from low testosterone levels, it can have a negative impact on your life in a number of different ways. This is why it is important for men who are suffering as a result of low testosterone levels to take action and speak to a medical professional for more advice. There are solutions that you can access if you are having this type of problem but you need to have the confidence to speak with your doctor so that the most suitable treatment can be put into place.
What are the negative effects of low testosterone?
There are many adverse effects that can arise as a result of low testosterone levels in men. This is why it is important for any man that experiences low levels of this hormone to speak to a medical professional to see whether anything can be done. One of the things it can affect is your ability to enjoy a healthy sex life and relationship. A drop in libido can impact on your self-confidence as well as on your relationship, but this is one of the negative effects of low testosterone levels. You will find that it becomes more difficult to feel ‘in the mood’ and the number of erections you have may be reduced. In addition, lack of testosterone may result in infertility, which is an issue if you were planning on having children in the future.
We all love to get a good night’s sleep because it is vital for our emotional and physical wellbeing as well as the quality of our lives. However, low testosterone can also affect sleep and you could find that you face difficulties when it comes to sleeping or maintaining a proper sleep routine. This can leave you feeling very tired and fatigued as well as irritable, unable to focus properly, and unable to function on a day to day basis as you should. Lack of sleep will have an impact on everything from your health to your work and home life, so it is imperative to take action in a bid to try to improve things.
Many men that have low testosterone levels find themselves on something of an emotional rollercoaster. The effects of a reduction in this hormone will affect you both emotionally and physically. By taking action early on and seeing a professional, you can reduce the risks of these effects and you can avoid a variety of problems that could otherwise affect different aspects of your life.
