In sexually active older men, almost half said their main reason for this is that the body is out of order, or there is no opportunity or restricted. Other reasons include lack of interest in health issues with their partners. Multiple cross-sectional analysis indicated that the decline in risk activities associated with the following factors:

– Age; – partner interest – your partner’s body limits – osteoporosis;

– Prostate cancer – diabetes; – taking antidepressant drugs;-the use of beta blocking agents.

But it is not clear whether Testosterone therapy will have a positive effect, especially since the inactive man is the most common cause of health problems. There seem to be a large proportion of the elderly man’s sexual needs are not being met.
