New Survey Reveals a Powerful Resource for Better Sex

The bedroom has become a very unhappy place. According to medical experts, the libidos of both men and women are lackluster, at best. This depressing problem has many causes but if a recent survey held by BioTE Medical is accurate, hormone replacement therapy is a part of the solution.

The results of this survey strongly suggest that hormone replacement therapy can dramatically enhance sex drive in both men and women.

According to the American Sexual Health Association (ASHA), one in three women in this country experiences low sex drive. Research from this group notes “Symptoms can include a decreased desire to have sex, fewer sexual thoughts and fantasies, as well as sexual responsiveness.”

Perhaps even more damaging are the emotional effects of low libido. This can cause or exacerbate depression, create job and family pressure, low self-esteem and, when anti-depressants are used to overcome this malaise it can cause even more problems such as chemical dependency.

Women are More Likely to Suffer Low Libido Than Men

The two genders are not equal in terms of the incidence of low libido. Dr. Gary Donovitz, founder and medical director of BioTE Medical offers this snapshot of the prevalence of low sex drive among women and men.

The BioTE Intimacy Survey

In an effort to determine the effects of hormone replacement therapy on the sex drives of recent recipients of the BioTE pellets, participants were randomly solicited and 85 responded to the survey. Each respondent was anonymous, which encouraged complete candor.While this is not a sufficient number of respondents to qualify as numerically significant, it does present interesting anecdotal data.

Most of the survey respondents were 35 and older.

  • 25 – 35 years…..2.35 %
  • 35 – 50 years…54.12 %
  • 50+ years……..43.53 %

When asked how long the respondent had been with his/her partner, most had been together for more than 10 years.

  • 1 – 5 years…..20.73%
  • 5 – 10 years…15.85%
  • 10+ years……63.41%

Since hormone replacement therapy is relatively new to the practice of medicine, most of the respondents had been using the pellets for 3 years and less. Here’s how the longevity of usage broke down.

  • Less than a year….44.71%
  • 1 – 3 years…………40%
  • 3+ years……………15.29%

The results of the next section of the survey are extremely illuminating. Why? Remember these respondents are current BioTE Medical patients and their responses differ widely from the norm of other American couples.

The question for this section was: How Often Do You Have Sex?

  • Once a week………………….25.61%
  • A couple of times a week…..28.05%
  • More than twice a week……46.34%

Results from the world famous Kinsey Institute suggests these BioTE Medical patients are experiencing the joy of sex with much more frequency than the non-pelleted individuals. In its most recent survey the Institute notes:

Among Partnered Men, 25 to 29 years
27.1 % had sex 2 to 3 times per week

Among Partnered Men, 30 to 39
39 % had sex 2 to 3 times per week

Among Partnered Men, 40 to 49
25.3% had sex 2 to 3 times per week

Among Partnered Women, 25 to 29 years
28.7 % had sex 2 to 3 times per week

Among Partnered Women, 30 to 39 years
18.2 % had sex 2 to 3 times per week

Among Partnered Women, 40 to 49
31.4 % had sex 2 to 3 times per week

Having low libido can affect many other areas of a person’s life and undergoing hormone replacement therapy can result in big changes. Dr. Donovitz explains.

How Has Your Sex Life Changed Since Your Were Pelleted?

The anonymity of this BioTE Intimacy Survey allowed respondents to candidly comment on the changes in their sex life since beginning the therapy. In fact, some were a little too “colorful” for this space.  Enthusiasm was the overwhelming sentiment expressed!

Here are some of the actual comments, taken verbatim from the final question of the survey:

  • “I’m back to my mid 20′s level.”
  • “It is amazing!”
  • “We have sex more often and it lasts longer.”
  • “It’s more frequent, intense, and there is better endurance.”
  • “I’m much more interested in sex and orgasms happen so much quicker!”
  • “Libido has gone up for both of us. We have sex much more often.”
  • “Sex has improved significantly. We used to only have sex about once a month, now at least couple times a week. More enjoyable. Easier to climax.”
  • “My wife desires it more and is now more accommodating to different positions.”
  • “Increased dramatically, especially since my wife is on it as well.”
  • “It has helped me in so many ways. Sex drive is great, sleeping is great, no more joint pain, I like myself again.”
  • “No longer have vaginal dryness, more libido, and better orgasms!”
  • “More consistent, more desire, better physique so I feel sexier”
  • “Increased libido! The desire is back and it’s AWESOME!”
  • “Before pellets I used to say I could never have sex again and be just fine. Of course my husband wasn’t fine with that. Now I even initiate it now and then. It has changed the whole dynamic of our relationship in and out of the bedroom.”
  • “We have sex 8 to 12 times a week! Does that answer your question?”
  • “Libido increased significantly. I am no longer tired at the end of the day and I actually look forward to sex with my husband.”
  • “I have stronger erections. More frequent sex.”
  • “Improved in all aspects. Didn’t realize how things had changed until after pelleting.”

The Joy of Sex

Experiencing the joy of sex can dramatically change your life – physically and emotionally. Just ask one of the participants in this survey. While it’s perfectly normal to experience low libido as a part of aging, hormone replacement therapy can increase sex drive and change lives.
