One of the most widely known symptoms of low testosterone is a decreased libido. While this is far from the only symptom, it is one that is definitely important to recognize. A healthy sex life is extremely important, and if you are suffering from low testosterone, your sex life will suffer as well. Seeking out testosterone replacement therapy in Tempe can help you get your life back on track. Here, we will look at three benefits of a healthy sex life.

Lower stress

Regular sex can have great benefits for your stress levels. Sex can have a major positive effect on your blood pressure that lasts well beyond the bedroom. The stress reducing effects of sex are very similar to other stress lowering activities, such as eating comfort foods, with none of the negative side effects. As with other physical activities, sex triggers the release of endorphins, which trigger a feeling of happiness.

More intimate relationships

Having sex with your partner on a regular basis can bring you closer together. During sex, your body releases a high concentration of oxytocin, which is also known as “the love hormone.”

A healthier heart

As we mentioned earlier, having sex can lower your blood pressure, and decrease your stress. A big benefit of this is a healthier heart. A recent study found that having sex at least twice a week can cut your risk of having a fatal heart attack in half.
