Signs And Symptoms Of Erectile Dysfunction

Millions of men all over the world suffer erectile dysfunction derived from low testosterone levels that causes trouble to maintain erections and having a low sex drive.

Low testosterone can also affect your muscle strength, mood, and energy level. Although testosterone decline as men age, it can also be due to disease, injury, drugs, and certain types of cancer. Therefore, it is important for men of all ages to know the warning signs and symptoms of low testosterone.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Signs and symptoms of low testosterone include:

• Decreased sex drive
• Erectile dysfunction
• Reduced energy level
• Reduced strength and endurance levels
• Sleep problems
• Emotional problems including sadness, irritability, difficulty concentrating and depression
• Increased breast size and tenderness
• Decrease in the amount of body hair
• Decreased penis or testicle size
• Loss of muscle mass

If you doubt that your testosterone level is low, a blood test can be done by your physician to measure your testosterone level.

You can check the Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male (ADAM) questionnaire before deciding if you need to have your testosterone level checked by your physician.

If you decide to have your physician to run a check up, your physician will want to make sure your low testosterone is not caused by medications you are taking or by a disease or condition that needs to be treated. The diagnosis for low testosterone includes taking a complete medical history and having a physical exam as well as laboratory tests to confirm the diagnosis. If you and your doctor decide that you should try medication to treat low testosterone, remember that a healthy lifestyle including a healthy weight, not smoking, limited alcohol, and regular exercise are also important for managing testosterone levels.

FORGET Viagra.

You can try this natural home-made recipe that I found in an article a couple of months ago. It was said to be more effective and it costs only a fraction of the blue pill but I took the brew for three continuous nights before I feel the effects. I think this brew have different effects to each individual, it’s all up to you whether you want to try it out or not.


200ml milk (fresh, UHT, anything)
6 almonds or 1 tablespoon ground almonds (skinned and pounded or ground)
1 egg (preferably free range eggs – must be fresh)
1 tablespoon honey (Tualang honey is very good!)

Heat the milk up until it is warm. In a blender, blend all the ingredients together for a minute and ENJOY!
