Urologist Smernitsky: irregular sex life negatively affects libido

According to urologist Andrei Smernitsky, several factors influence male libido. One of them is irregular sex life.

Few men know that, in addition to the wrong regime and bad habits, irregular sex life also negatively affects libido. So draw your conclusions, the doctor noted.

How to improve your men's health? Smernitsky gave some advice.

Take care of testosterone. Watch your weight: obesity, including visceral obesity, reduces its level. If your waist circumference becomes more than 94 cm, you have problems.

You can increase testosterone naturally, but no one has canceled the medical one. Remember that only a doctor prescribes medications. Self-medication is destructive.

But first of all, get yourself in order, and then, perhaps, you won’t need medication. You need to give up cigarettes and alcohol, establish a daily routine, organize your diet, and get into the habit of physical exercise.

About smoking.Each cigarette causes vasospasm for half an hour (all of them). In regular smokers with a dose of two cigarettes per hour, the spasm becomes chronic. The body is constantly experiencing a lack of oxygen. Blood flow to the vessels of the penis decreases, erection worsens.

Alcohol is a toxin, there is no safe dose, this is a myth. There is no organ that does not suffer from alcohol. Chronic intoxication leads to a decrease in testosterone production, which will certainly affect potency.

Intense physical activitywithin three months increases testosterone levels by 36%. The main thing is not to overdo it, start classes gradually and under the supervision of a specialist. Even 15 minutes of exercise every day on an exercise bike for 12 weeks increases testosterone levels by 17%.

Note, there are several foods that can help increase testosterone levels.
