Testosterone hormone though found in both male and female bodies is commonly referred to as the “male hormone” simply because it is produced in large amount by the male gender than female. It is responsible for a man’s sexual development. Its functions in men include maturation of male sex organs, mass muscle development, sperm production hair growth, and voice deepening.
Low Testosterone is common in older men, but it can also affect younger ones causing issues in marriages and at times self-esteem problems in men. To seek treatment, you need to know the symptoms. Here is a glimpse of some of the signs of low testosterone.
Decreased libido and low semen volume
A drastic decline in your sex drive combined with other symptoms is an indication that your testosterone levels have dropped. For a married man, this can hurt your marriage and thus, should be treated as soon as possible. Low semen volume is yet another indicator that the hormone responsible is not working because its production has gone low. You will notice the decrease of semen during ejaculation.
Hair loss and loss of muscle mass
Loss of facial and body hair is an indicator that the testosterone levels have gone low, although some men have natural genetic balding, low testosterone is yet another cause. Same applies to the muscles. Since the hormone is responsible for muscle growth, lack of it will result in a decrease of the muscle mass although this may not affect your strength.
With a low amount of testosterone, it’s hard to achieve and maintain an erection. You may experience some random spontaneous erections which are another indicator that your hormone level is low. It is crucial to note that Testosterone is just one of the factors that are responsible for an erection and failure to have an erection does not necessarily mean that your T levels are low.
Other symptoms that point to low testosterone include fatigue, sleep disturbances, increased body fat and in some men increased breasts. Make sure you see your doctor as soon as you notice the above signs and symptoms.
