Erectile Dysfunction and Testosterone Levels

A larger percentage of erectile dysfunction (ED) can be attributed to someone’s physical and emotional state, but at times, it’s caused by low testosterone levels. Testosterone is the primary sex hormone produced by testicles in men. Even though it may seem logical to link low testosterone levels to erectile dysfunction, it’s not guaranteed that men with ED often have low testosterone levels. In fact, most of them have normal levels of this hormone.

So, how exactly does testosterone level affect sexual performance? Even though low levels of this hormone can reduce your sex drive, it doesn’t have the psychological impact you need to achieve and maintain an erection. ED is a vascular issue, not a hormonal one, and that’s why all you need to get an erection is enough blood flow to your penis. This means a healthy heart. As much as low testosterone levels don’t directly affect ED, some of contributing factors overlap. For instance, low testosterone levels are caused by obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels, which directly affect the heart. This affects blood flow to all parts of the body including the penis thus causing erectile dysfunction.

Now that we are clear on the fact that testosterone levels aren’t to blame for erectile dysfunction, it’s still important to seek treatment in case of low levels because some of its symptoms can affect your sex life. Such symptoms include reduced sex drive, low semen volume, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, increased body mass, and much more. If obesity is the cause of reduced testosterone levels, losing weight may help increase natural testosterone production. You can also consider testosterone replacement therapy, but it should be a short-term solution because its side effects can pose risks.

Before trying any form of treatment, you should probably consider natural options. Simple lifestyle changes can go a long way in remedying an erectile dysfunction.
