Many men come into our Men’s Vitality Clinic on the recommendation of their loved one. Maybe their spouse or partner has noticed the symptoms stacking up; things like a decrease in libido, higher irritability, feeling tired all of the time, or even problems concentrating. They want their partner to get to the bottom of all of these symptoms, and often, the cause turns out to be low testosterone. Low T can affect virtually every aspect of your life, including your relationships and that may be why your loved one encouraged you to make an appointment in the first place.
How Low T Affects Relationships
Decreased sex drive.
Sex isn’t a requirement for a healthy intimate relationship, but it certainly helps. If you’ve had a decrease in your sex drive due to lowered testosterone levels, it may leave your partner feeling rejected. They might think you aren’t interested in them sexually anymore and take it personally. It can create a distance in your relationship that wasn’t there before, especially if you had an active sex life before now. Raising your testosterone levels through hormone replacement therapy can help you reconnect with your partner and revitalize your sex life.
Low T can cause a host of issues with your mood, including making your more irritable or causing you to feel depressed. You might have a lack of motivation to socialize or work on projects together. Your partner might notice the changes in your mood but feel helpful to do anything about it. This can start to cause a divide in your relationship, especially if you are getting upset over minor things that didn’t use to bother you. Getting help for these mood issues can help you reconnect and find your love of life again.
It’s tough to live with a partner who can’t concentrate on what’s going on around them. Maybe your partner needs your help with a weekend DIY project but you don’t have the attention span to help. Or maybe you are leaving unfinished projects all over the house. This can be frustrating for both of you, and that lack of concentration can be blamed on Low T. Raising your testosterone levels back up can help you regain your concentration and focus on tasks and your partner.
How Testosterone Replacement Therapy Can Help
Replacing your natural hormone levels with testosterone replacement therapy can eliminate these negative effects. In a matter of a few weeks, you can gain back your sexual libido, increase your concentration, and banish depression and anxiety so you feel like yourself again. Eliminating the negative symptoms of low testosterone levels can help you reconnect with your partner and put the spark back in your relationship.
