As you age, you may notice more than wrinkles and restless sleep. Your sex drive could be taking a hit as well. If you’re dealing with erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness, age management helps. With anti-aging therapies to boost your sex drive, you can certainly slow down the signs and symptoms of growing older.
At Balance Hormone Center in Norman, Oklahoma, we’re dedicated to keeping senior adults active and confident. A healthy sex life is an essential part of mental and physical well-being as you age. Gordon Hart, PA-C, our primary practitioner, uses holistic approaches in age management to improve sexual function and boost your performance.
The sex drive slump
Men and women both deal with physical issues as they age. As an older adult, you may have noticed issues with your sexual performance due to lower levels of important hormones.
As men age, they tend to have lower levels of testosterone. Testosterone is a hormone that’s responsible for your sex drive, and it regulates things like fertility.
As the testosterone in your body lessens, you’ll likely notice the thinning of your body hair and a lack of energy. In addition, as your hormone levels change, you may also experience a decreased sex drive.
Estrogen is one of the primary sex hormones found in women. It’s responsible for regulating menstruation and other functions like protecting bone health and brain function.
Low estrogen is the reason for the start of menopause. Common symptoms of menopause are vaginal dryness, accompanied by a lack of sexual desire.
How age management supports senior sex
At Balance Hormone Center, we specialize in hormone replacement therapy and other lifestyle changes to get your sex drive back on track. Using age management as part of a personalized treatment plan, we work to end your suffering from hormonal imbalances. Our experts boost your sex drive with a targeted anti-aging regimen to help you look and feel your best.
Bioidentical hormone therapy
Part of your treatment plan may include bioidentical hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and are chemically identical to the ones your body produces. As your testosterone or estrogen diminishes, bioidentical hormone replacement is an excellent addition to your anti-aging treatment plan.
Balanced nutrition is an essential component of your age management plan. If your hormonal imbalance is worsened by a mineral or vitamin deficiency, we create a wellness plan tailored to your needs. Proper nutrition is directly related to your sex drive, so it’s important that you’re not deficient in any critical nutrients.
Intravenous (IV) therapy
Intravenous therapy provides an excellent boost to your sex drive as you age. A proper age management plan includes effective solutions targeting nutritional and hormonal deficiencies, which is what IV therapy provides.
It instantly gives your body everything it needs to boost your sex drive, increase your energy, and even ease chronic pain. Including IV therapy in your treatment plan will have you feeling younger and more energetic before you even leave our office.
Sex can and should be satisfying well into your 80s and beyond. It’s natural to feel anxiety around these issues, but age management and anti-aging remedies help you adapt to your changing body.
