Low male libido treatments: get your mojo back
Low male libido can be cause by a number of factors from low testosterone to psychological factors like depression, anxiety, high stress, or simple performance fright. Other factors effecting libido can be prescription medications, drug and alcohol abuse and use. Those suffering with this should rest assured as there are many treatments. The most common reason for low libido is actually not low libido but performance fear.
Performance fear occurs when the male is unable to maintain erection for long enough to reach sexual climax. This embarrassment and fear of re-occurrence can lead to diminished desire. This becomes more of an issue as men age because the amount of free testosterone available is lower. The testosterone works mechanically within the blood vessels of the penis to cause increased blood flow. The result is an erection. The more free testosterone available, the more blood flow and stronger erection.
Lack of sexual desire or low libido is most commonly caused by low testosterone and is quickly improved once testosterone levels are optimized.
