Signs You Should Test Your Testosterone Levels

After the age of 30, some men experience a drop in sexual driveMan giving thumbs up and difficulty with erectile function. While some erectile dysfunction (ED) symptoms are caused by psychological factors, there is a biological factor that men often forget to get tested: testosterone levels. Learn to recognize these common signs that your testosterone levels should be tested.

Drop in Sexual Drive – The most common symptom of low testosterone (low-t) is a drop in sexual drive and libido. While this drop can be caused by psychological symptoms like stress and anxiety, low-t is a potential cause of impotence. If nighttime erections begin to wane, it’s time to test your testosterone levels.

Physical Symptoms – A drop in testosterone levels can sometimes cause obvious physical symptoms like enlarged breasts or hair loss. One of the most common early signs that some men notice is that they do not need to shave as often as before.

Andropause – At the age of 40, some men begin experiencing a male form of menopause called andropause. Men will typically experience menopause-like symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. This is a time when hormone levels begin to drop due to age. It’s important to test testosterone levels after this age to make sure your hormone levels are decreasing at a normal rate.

Testosterone replacement therapy is one of the best ways to boost testosterone. Discover a new way to restore erectile function at Pinnacle Men’s Health in Jacksonville.

Five Ways to Win Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and for many it’s a wonderful time of romance and love. Unfortunately for others, it can be a poignant reminder of certain performance-related difficulties. Flowers and chocolates are great gifts that every woman loves, but wouldn’t it be nice to take things one step further, just like you used to? Well, believe it or not, you can. Here are five proven solutions to help make 2018 the best Valentine’s Day you’ve had in ages.

  1. We’re all familiar with the little blue pill. And for a lot of guys, it works great – for a while. What’s not often mentioned however, is the fact that ED pills often lose their efficacy over time, or sometimes aren’t effective at all! For cases such as these, we have a range of customized ED treatment plans with proven results.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could treat ED with long-lasting results, using your body’s own natural capabilities? WAVE Therapy is the answer you’ve been searching for.
