Low Testosterone Is The Result Of Having Less Sex
A recent study carried out here in Australia has indicated that reduced testosterone appears to be the results of a low libido
The study – Titled the Concord Health And Ageing In Men Project was held in Sydney… it followed 1705 men aged 70 or over, and is reported to be the largest and most comprehensive study of the health of older men ever conducted in the world.
Over two year period scientists found that baseline serum testosterone levels did not predict or cause a decline in sexual activity or desire.. on the contrary it discovered that a drop in testosterone levels was strongly related to those having less sex.
The men visited the scientists several times during the course of the study, and each time fewer asked sensitive questions about their sex life and activity.
- “How often are you able to get and keep an erection that is firm enough to enable sexual intercourse”
- “How many times over the past month have you had any sexual activity that reached ejaculation? “(including both masturbation and intercourse)
- “Compared to how you felt at the age of 50, how much desire for sex do you have?”
At the visits the men also had their levels of DHT, Estradiol, and Estrone checked along with the levels of Sex Hormone Binding globulin (SHBG), Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
The results after the two years was that baseline serum testosterone, DHT, E2 and E1 did not predict decline in sexual activity, sexual desire and erectile function.
As a distinct Contrast , the decline in testosterone (but not in DHT, E2 or E1) over time, though less than 10%, was strongly related to decreased sexual activity and desire, but not to erectile dysfunction.
