Sex hasn't been as satisfying lately. What's going on?
If you can, offer a little more detail about what's letting you down. "Satisfaction can be about rigid erections, the volume of ejaculation, or experiencing orgasms," says Dr. Paduch. Declines in semen volume or sensation can be signs of falling T, although less-satisfying orgasms may also be linked to diabetes or alcohol. Fess up to pot too: "Some studies show that prolonged use of marijuana can affect sex drive, because of the estrogenic effect," says Dr. Paduch. In order to diagnose, docs need all of the puzzle pieces.
Should I get tested for STDs?
As far as your doctor knows, you're still sleeping with the same woman you were the last time he saw you. Request an STD screening if you've had multiple partners. Be especially honest if you've had any drunken hook-ups, says Dr. Paduch, since you may not have used a condom or, if you did, you may not remember if the condom broke.
