Low-T Club!

Does this sound like you?

Do you often lack the sex drive you want, feel fatigued, and irritable? Often, deficient testosterone leaves us with the most obvious unpleasant symptom - low sex drive. But, there is more to it than that! Sex just becomes a chore if you also experience all of these:

  • decreased sex drive

  • lack of cervical mucus

  • loss of motivation

  • irritability

  • fatigue

  • vaginal dryness

  • painful intercourse

Not to mention, if you’re experiencing some or all of these, it may have a direct negative impact on your relationship. So, it’s no fun. But why is this happening?

Based on the smart fertility Assessment, you likely have:

insufficient levels of testosterone

What is insufficient testosterone?

Interestingly enough, many women can be functional and have almost no symptoms of decreased testosterone. I believe it’s because some women have had low testosterone their entire lives, and either just learned to deal with it, or figured this is just who they are! But, for those who have symptoms, it’s often blaringly obvious that it’s a change from how you felt before.

There can be several reasons why testosterone is low:

  • Low precursors to testosterone (that includes DHEA, Pregnenolone, Vitamin D, and Cholesterol from healthy fats)

  • Your body over converts the testosterone you have to estrogen, leaving very little testosterone for the body’s needs.

How does this affect fertility?

  1. Ovarian Function: Testosterone is involved in the early stages of follicle development in the ovaries. A deficiency in testosterone may impair the development of the follicles, potentially leading to anovulation (absence of ovulation) or irregular ovulation.

  2. Egg Quality: Some studies suggest that testosterone plays a role in ensuring the quality of the egg. Insufficient testosterone levels could lead to poor egg quality, which in turn reduces the chances of successful fertilization and implantation.

  3. Libido: Testosterone plays a key role in female libido. Low levels can lead to a decreased sexual desire, which can naturally decrease the frequency of sexual activity, consequently reducing the opportunities for conception.

  4. Endometrial Development: Some evidence suggests that testosterone plays a role in the development of the endometrial lining, which is crucial for the implantation of a fertilized egg. A thin or poorly developed endometrial lining can make it difficult for an embryo to implant, leading to failed pregnancies or miscarriages.

  5. Bone Health: Testosterone also contributes to bone density in both men and women. Low testosterone levels may increase the risk of bone-related issues, such as osteoporosis, which could indirectly impact overall health and fertility.

And… although this is not commonly known, the biggest problem I’ve noticed with low testosterone is vaginal dryness and decreased cervical mucus production. Cervical mucus is the food and fuel for sperm to make it through the cervix and down the fallopian tubes to fertilize the egg. No lube compares to your body’s production of this nutrient rich medium that can help sperm survive 3-5 days until the egg is released from the ovary. The need for this is not to be underestimated. But, a solution for this problem exists! The proper herbs and nutrients could help to improve testosterone levels which should lead to increased sex drive (especially a couple of days prior to ovulation), improved ovulation, and increased cervical mucus production.
