Low confidence beyond the bedroom can break you. There are options to combat low testosterone to balance those negative and destructive emotions and to feel young and masculine again.
Understandably, low testosterone symptoms aren’t limited to a decreased desire for sex and difficulty gaining and maintaining an erection. You might also be struggling with problems concentrating at work and with fatigue. With low testosterone, decreasing muscle mass and strength is compounded by an increase in body fat.
A 2013 review of seven clinical trials involving 355 people published in the journal Psychosomatics looked at the effect of low testosterone on mood. The researchers found that men are likely to feel depressed, anxious, and irritable because of low testosterone, and that low testosterone could be the underlying cause of unexplained depression. The same review also showed that testosterone replacement therapy helped overcome feelings of depression.
