When is Comes To Sex are you More Male or More Female (Hormone) Related?

Sexual function is related to hormone levels. The question is how? Male hormone testosterone and the female hormone estrogen affects sexual function. When we study body image, positive sexual energy, and overall stamina for sex, these hormones take on a whole different set of implications for our body. And in women with medications, diets, or genetic reasons to metabolize the hormones differently, there are going to be diverse effects on you sex life as all of those can impact hormones. In most studies we are more in the mood mid cycle when male hormone levels rise, but sadly not even every study has firmly confirmed that link. As with other female sexual studies the mystique is still a mystery to gynecologic
researchers. As you age your relative testosterone, estrogen balance may change. Thus we like to say you are female hormone dominant or male hormone dominant. And this can be established by a medical visit and testing. Some sexual function in women appears to be positively related to testosterone levels. Some studies show some sexual function is related to estrogen levels, and some sexual function is not apparently related to our hormone levels at all. In a study of desire, orgasm, arousal, and sexual pain. It appears that testosterone levels positively affected desire, masturbation, and orgasm. In most categories of sexual function FSH (which raises as estrogen lowers) was higher if sexual function was poorer in the study by Randolph and colleagues.The question is: what were your hormones when you functioned the best, what are they if function has fallen off, and finally will boosting your hormones improve your sex life if it needs a bit of a nudge? Worthy topics for you and your personal gyno to sort out!
