I'm 36 years old and have no libido. I have 3 small children, but I feel like my sex drive is a lot worse than it should be for someone my age.
I recently had my hormones tested and was told they were "normal". Is a testosterone level of 14 normal for someone my age?
I should elaborate and say that I was at 14 on a scale of 11-56. And I know that you only lose more testosterone as you get older - so it will only get worse. My free testosterone was 1.5 on a scale of 1.3-9.2 - that doesn't seem "normal" to me either. I know some of my problem is having 3 small children, but I think how doctors just blow you off and say you're "normal" as long as you're within the range is what upsets me.
I've been reading a lot from Dr. Elizabeth Vliet and she said you need to be about in the range of 40-60 to not have the effects of low testosterone - no stamina, low muscle tone, and low libido, etc. I think I need to go see a specialist in my area since my OB/GYN doesn't seem to be offering any help. It also irritated me that I had to ask for a copy of my results b/c they normally don't send that out.... If I hadn't asked I would have no idea how low my "normal" results actually were!
Thanks for listening to me vent!
