What Are The Signs Of Low Testosterone?

Most people associate low testosterone with men, but it can affect women as well. It’s important for both men and women to pay attention to what their bodies are trying to tell them. The sooner you are able to recognize symptoms of low hormone levels, the earlier we may be able to help you live a better quality of life. In order to help, we created a list of symptoms that may mean you are experiencing low levels of testosterone! 

Sex Drive 

This symptom is what most people think of first when we talk about low testosterone. But if you are realizing that your sex drive just isn’t what it used to be, this may be the first indicator that something isn’t right. As people age, their sex drive can naturally decline, but someone with low testosterone levels will likely experience a more dramatic drop. When testosterone is low, men could have problems getting and keeping an erection while women may experience less sexual satisfaction and vaginal dryness. 

Physical Changes 

The male and female bodies are very different, so the physical changes caused by low testosterone also differ. Men will start to notice a decline in muscle mass as well as hair thinning or loss. Women, on the other hand, may start to gain weight even if they have not changed their lifestyle and may also see a change in the way their skin looks. 

Bone Density 

Osteoporosis, when bones start to thin, is usually associated with menopause, but it can also be a sign of low testosterone in women! It may be shocking for men to learn that osteoporosis is something that can happen to them also if they are experiencing low testosterone levels. 

Fatigue 

People become fatigued for numerous reasons, so you may not realize being extra tired is due to low T levels. Instead of ignoring your fatigue, think of it as your body potentially trying to tell you it’s time to take action and seek help.  

We Want To Help

If you’re experiencing the symptoms of menopause, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help by replacing lost hormones. BHRT helps people regain and then maintain their natural, optimal testosterone level. The testosterone used in the therapy is the same chemical structure as the hormones that are already in your body, which means that you will see immediate improvements to your health and energy.  Plus, since the testosterone supplements are identical to the hormones you already have, you’ll have almost no side effects.
