If a 52 year old male doesn't crave affection, has his hormone level decreased. After 30 it reduces?
It is supposed to decrease a certain percentage after 30, It could depend on the individual. What do you think happens to men and their libido?
Yes, I would say for some Men their libido has decreased quite significantly by the age of 52. Or it could be that they are just tired because their energy level is not what it used to be. It could also be low testosterone. As we age our testosterone decreases, In which their are now medications for that.
Yes a man's hormone level will gradually decline after 30. How much it declines is dependent on the man and other factors (weight, stress, and other mitigating factors). There are several symptoms to low testosterone outside of low libido, there's also depression, anxiety, fatigue, decreased facial and body hair, lack of confidence, weight gain and loss of muscle.
There is no question that hormone levels in our body contribute to the way we perceive and process our experiences emotionally. I know of a man who was taking a treatment to decrease testosterone specifically to fight prostate cancer and his wife described him as her best girlfriend.
When you say "affection," do you mean affection as in touch or do you mean libido which is more sexual desire? Very different issues.
iN GENERAL, men do not grieve their losses well, and life is such that we experience LOSSES all the time so when you attempt to shut down the grieving process, which is a physiological process, not a psychological one, we can become really disconnected and may not even want to eat food. So there is really not enough information in the question to answer it thoroughly, BUT A GOOD QUESTION.
We all know it is not the same for a man to be say 26 or 52. It is a natural thing for a younger man to crave sex, we have to reproduce. For some reason when our reproducing days are over we crave less sex. In the end it is a matter of age. How much less (funny sentence) is a personal thing. There is no shame in being less desirous of sex when we get on in age. Its just natural.
On the other hand, if you dislike the fact that the man seems less attracted to you, try to figure out why. It's a whole different thing, because that is personal and may have nothing to do with libido at that age.
If the cause is physical: we do have medication for that.
I would say that a 52 year old man who has a rapid decrease in libido may be experiencing a normal thing, but I believe he should confirm that with a thorough physical exam by his doctor. I am well beyond that age and still active in every way.
Men's libido normally is not affected so much. It's the women who usually suffer in the early fifties and afterwards. However, if there is such a problem, the doctor is the person to consult. 52 for men is not an age of crisis normally, but as Alphadogg mentioned all those factors may have taken their toll. Do recommend that this person see a doctor and if the doctor recommends medication don't jump on it unless it involves other things like exercise, rest or a change of routine. If the first thing the doctor says is 'you need medication', get a second opinion.
I agree a hundred years. On the other hand: men are very shy about this. It's women who normally want them to see a GP.
B4 MD, simply sit and ask, the obvious: what in my life is zapping me of energy and what is building resentment to the point I don't want any affection from anyone! Just a thought!
It happens to the best of us. I had gone 4 whole years that way and my poor husband didn't actually complain until the 4th year. Thank goodness I recovered (and I was much younger at the time). Just remember we create our lives and train of thought.
Men experience lose of hormones just as women do. And just as women can replace hormones, men can too. It is not unheard of for men to get testosterone replacement therapy as women get estrogen replacement therapy. Men just need to talk to their physicians.
