The connection between lack of sexual desire and erectile dysfunctionOn April 8, 2019 by Kelly Castro
It has been shown that stress is negatively correlated with sexual activity (both in behavior and in satisfaction). That is, research suggests that high levels of day-to-day stress are associated with less sexual activity and a decrease in the satisfaction of the couple.
All this can cause sexual dysfunctions to appear in the future, such as erection problems due to insecurity, nervousness or fear of failing before a new erotic encounter; and what started as a one-time problem, could become persistent.
In any case, before a loss of libido, it is convenient to be able to establish a fluent communication between both parties of the couple to approach the problem naturally and avoid misunderstandings.
At the same time, it is essential to know that low levels of testosterone may be behind the loss of sexual desire. It is what is medically known as testosterone deficiency syndrome and is usually manifested after 40 years.
Precisely this hormonal alteration can also cause episodes of erectile dysfunction in which there is difficulty in achieving an erection or the orgasm is not achieved.
In this way, in case of decreased libido or erection problems that persist, you should go to the specialist doctor. This is essential, since the treatment for testosterone deficiency syndrome allows to improve its different symptoms, and because erectile dysfunction can be a sign that there are other aspects of general health that are not working as they should and should be treated on time.
