Declining hormone levels. I understand perfectly. I'm female, and my sex drive used to be over the top for most of my adult life, but it has totally tanked out. I thought as we aged that it would still be there, just less of it. But it stopped completely, and rather abruptly which was scary . I want it back too, even at my age of almost 70. It was a part of who I am/was. I never thought I'd have to learn to live without one, ugh I hate that it's MIA.

I do take BIHR (bioidentical hormone replacement), just not testosterone. I used to lift weights regularly since the late 70's till several years ago. That is supposed to increase our testosterone naturally without having to take T which can be expensive. At that time my SD was insane even when I was in my early to mid 60's, so it must work, lol. And it started to decline after I worked out less. Time to start up again while I still can, lol. The older we get, the faster things fall off of us .

I must be the exception to the rule since I absolutely hate it being gone.

That would cost about 1k.

Viagra commercials (and TV in general) is not real life for most people living in a real world. It could be that your T level has dropped below some critical point (that's normal at your age) or, looking around, you just feel turned off by what you see (not uncommon for many people these days). As for me? After 60+ years of living the "born horny" life...I've completely lost interest in the past couple years, and it took me a while to grasp that fact...turns out, both of the above factors have contributed to my loss of interest. But, I'm no worse for the wear. I've found other things to do.


BTW, I'm an expert at this stuff, and yeah...I have to say, most doctors I've talked to are pretty clueless about this topic or are downright uncomfortable talking about it.


BTW: More important, you are at an age when a stress test is recommended (get stents if you need them - they add 20 years to your life) and a colonoscopy (if you've never had one) is useful. Colon cancer is quite predictable these days, and is a nasty way to go if you get it.
I am only into the younger 1's and always have been. Anyone near my age is a total turn off. I like 20's to around 30.

Some people are more highly interested in sex than others. Go to a Doctor and get a check up there are lots of options out there. (If your interested) if not no worries. Do things you like to do or get a hobby.

I have a hobby bobby. But i am sure saving money by not being in the mood like i used to be so it's not all bad.

Not hardly...you can even have the bloodwork done yourself and that part would come in at likely not much more than $100. Anyway, you start simple and then see what more needs to be investigated, not just do it all blindly.

Want to be 19 again.
How old are you or maybe if I read the replies you have already answered the question. You do need to have a check up. We all should have one a year to see how we are doing and get blood work done. There could be a good reason for your lack of sex drive, or it could be pretty much advancing years. There are meds,as you know you can take or you can accept this as part of the aging process. That is assuming there isn't some underline reason for your condition.
