Sex is Healthy

November 28, 2020

Are you having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep? Do you sometimes feel like you don’t have enough energy to get out of bed? Are you cranky or irritable for no obvious reason? Do you want to feel better mentally and physically? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should probably schedule an appointment to meet with Dr. Arbuckle, the hormone replacement expert at Fountain of You MD in Virginia Beach. But, before you schedule your visit, maybe all you need is to have more sexual relations instead!

Researchers have studied the human endocrine system for centuries. It’s been proven that numerous hormones are released during intimacy. These releases make you feel good but also benefit your overall health.

Testosterone, Oxytocin, Estrogen and endorphins are all released by your glands while you’re enjoying having sex. An orgasm sends these hormones straight to your bloodstream, helping you feel as much pleasure as possible. Reaching an orgasm might not be as satisfying if our endocrine system didn’t produce hormones.

Low Libido = Health Problems?

Your hormones, especially Testosterone, have very strong influences on your desire to have sex. As you get older, your body naturally produces less hormones. Unfortunately for women, the decline in hormone production is more drastic than for men. Men lose about 1% of Testosterone yearly starting around age 30. By the time a woman reaches menopause, their levels are at HALF of their peak! Testosterone plays a key role in the desire to have sex, maintain bone and muscle mass, and contribute to overall health and wellness. Low levels of Testosterone can leave you feeling tired with hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, fatigue and anxiety.

Some psychological conditions can affect your desire to have sex. But your sex life can be reignited after starting bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

You’re suffering from low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, lack of energy, feelings of anxiety and depression, low sex drive, lack of mental clarity, sleep problems, or weight gain, your Testosterone levels may be unbalanced, and we can help.
