Fight Stress with Sex
Stop stressing about sexual dysfunction and start reaping the stress-busting benefits of sex.
Stress isn’t just mentally exhausting. It can also have a big physical impact on the body through the action of the stress hormone cortisol. When produced in large amounts over an extended period of time, cortisol can cause premature aging of virtually every system in the body, especially the skin. High cortisol can also reduce immune function, trigger fat storage and weight gain, contribute to memory problems, and make the hormonal imbalances that characterize menopause and andropause worse.
Fortunately, there are many ways to reduce stress and protect yourself from the harmful action of excess cortisol. Having frequent sex is one of them. Sex triggers the release of “feel-good” hormones like oxytocin and endorphins, promotes better quality sleep, and helps foster intimate relationships, all of which can help your body deal with stress better.

…What If You’re Stressed About Your Sex Life?
For many older men and women, sex can become a source of stress. Men may be worried about performance, while women may be concerned about pain due to vaginal dryness. Lack of desire can be a concern for both genders.
Needless to say, stressing over sexual problems is going to make the impact of cortisol worse, not better. Rather than worry, it’s time to take action and get expert help revitalizing your sex life.
Renew Youth Has Solutions
At Renew Youth, we offer a variety of treatment options to relieve sexual dysfunction in men and women. In many cases, hormone therapy is all that is needed to restore desire and performance. Testosterone replacement will restore men’s sex drive as well as provide the building blocks for healthy erections, while women will need both estrogen (to combat vaginal dryness) and testosterone (to boost sex drive).
We also offer other treatments that can be used with or without hormone therapy. For example, we offer a topical estrogen cream that can help restore elasticity to vaginal tissue, oxytocin treatment to improve female orgasms, and a variety of options for improving arousal and desire. We also offer medications and other options for treating ED in men.
Regardless of where you currently stand with your sex life, we won’t give up on you. Instead, we’ll work with you to find the specific combination of treatments that works for you. To learn more, call us at 800-859-7511 for a free initial consultation.
