Many things can cause impotence, including having atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and other emotional or psychological illnesses, pelvic surgery, kidney failure, multiple sclerosis, stroke, some types of epilepsy, and alcoholism. Some men who take medicines for heart disease or drugs that can affect the central nervous system, such as hormonal medicines or heroin and cocaine also are at risk for impotence. Scientists exposed the existence of pheromones in humans in 1986 and have been studying them ever since. They have revealed that pheromones act as Aphrodisiac. Pheromones have been demonstrated to bring about an increase in luteinizing hormone (LH) in women, thereby causing a woman to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a man. Business stress, economical ups & down, caring for a sick family member and many other stressors can decrease libido. Loss of libido (reduced or lost interest in sex) also can occur at different points in a man’s life. Both estrogen and testosterone are hormones that can be found in both men and women. The difference is between the amount found in males and females are extremely different. Males produce as much as 6-8mg of testosterone per day versus women who only produce about .5 mg per day. Estrogen is important for women due to it’s ability to help maintain the vaginal lining, produce lubrication, and maintain breast shape. In men, estrogen has no known purpose. However, too much estrogen in men can be a cause of reduced sexual need, erectile dysfunction, cause difficulty in building muscle, and make it difficult to lose fat. Testosterone in men is essential for a healthy sexual appetite. Many men who have testosterone deficiencies show a decrease in sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, and low-self esteem.
