hormone levels?

Sun, 07-22-2007 - 2:58pm


I am a lurker on this board but have an extremely low libido. DH and I have been married almost 7 years and have a beautiful baby boy (which as those of you with children know, doesn't do much for LL!). Anyway, rather than get into my whole story I'll just say this has been an issue for me/us throughout my life due to several issues.
I am seeing a new therapist now and DH and I are in couples therapy, and my new therapist suggested I get my hormone levels checked. I am not interested in taking any testosterone but it might help my peace of mind.
Wondering if anyone has had their levels checked...what did it entail? If you DO have low testosterone, do you take anything and what have the side effects been like for you? Has it helped?
TIA!

My wife just recently had her's checked as a suggestion from our therapist. It was meerly a simple blood test. Her test results came back normal so I can't help you any on the treatments or any possible side effects. But as far as the test goes, no big deal. Good luck on everything and if you do decide to have the test and things come back normal, don't give up hope.
