There are many individuals suffering from depression who at the same time will have a low sex drive. This could be due to the anti-depressant medication or the depression itself. Counselling, psychotherapy or a change in medication may result in an improvement of this condition.
Men with low testosterone or hypogonadism may well have a low bio-available testosterone level resulting in a low sex drive. The male andropause (or male menopause) is a condition that can occur as early as the fortiesh decade in many men. One of the presenting symptoms is low sex drive together with tiredness, apathy, hot flushes, poor ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Dr. Moran can easily confirm the condition by appropriate blood tests and testosterone replacement therapy if indicated.
