Is HRT a Treatment Option for Low Libido?

Has your sex life taken a nosedive? Is your sex drive waning or nonexistent? And despite your lack of desire, do you long to find that spark and reignite your libido? Low libido doesn’t have to be an inevitable part of aging. Today, there are solutions—not a temporary fix, but real solutions.

HRT Increases Libido

Both men and women can discover a number of benefits to a lost or lagging sex drive with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Low levels of testosterone or estrogen dominance (too much estrogen) are both conditions that contribute to a diminished sex drive.

Hormone balance. An imbalance of any one of your hormones could cause your sex drive to plummet or adversely impact your sex life—it’s not just about the sex hormones. Cortisol or the thyroid hormones can cause depression or anxiety that can keep you from enjoying intimate moments. A full assessment of your hormone levels and discussion of your symptoms can help your doctor discover the root of the issue and find solutions.

Testosterone therapy. Testosterone is the hormone of desire. In many cases of low libido, men and women are struggling with low testosterone or estrogen dominance. Testosterone affects your emotions, fuels sexual desire and, among men, plays a role in performance. Depression and irritability are emotional signs of low testosterone, which can further contribute to low sexual desire. If you are experiencing low libido, your testosterone levels should be checked and monitored and the various testosterone therapy options discussed.

Additional options. The cause of low libido may not be an obvious hormonal imbalance. Hormones, like oxytocin, play a role in feelings of love and bonding. If your body is not releasing enough oxytocin, it can affect that burning desire for your partner. Options to treat this condition include oxytocin sublingual (drops that dissolve under tongue) or oxytocin nasal spray. If the low libido is related to an inability to perform, it may be a vascular issue, particularly among men. Compounded pharmaceuticals are also available, such as sildenafil and tadalafil, to address sexual performance and dysfunction conditions in men.

A hormone replacement therapy plan can address various forms of hormonal imbalances that may be affecting your sex drive, but not just any plan will do—choose an expert physician who will offer you one-on-one attention and a tailored plan designed just for you. Your consultation should include advanced, comprehensive testing, a review of your lab results, and an in-depth discussion of your symptoms. With this information, your doctor should work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs and your lifestyle.
