Sex life over at 60?

Ok guys,
I know I am a female but...I need some serious help. DH
just turned 60 and it appears our sex life is over. It just won't stay up! I am 50 and not ready to give it up! He has been checked by dr. and told his test. level was low. They offerered shots..he took 2 which did not help and will not return. He also tried the well know drug...forgot the name of it. He is very embarrassed. We have only been married a few years and sex has never been right. He says he has had this problem with his previous wife but it eventually corrected itself. He takes no drugs, so that's not it. I feel like it is just me, but then again I have never had sexual problems until now. I have my trusty little viberator which I use, but feel cheated. I really do love him and other that this, we do ok, so do I just need to get over it? Any advice?

Re: Sex life over at 60?

My husband and I are having a similar problem. We're both 63, and I've been telling him that age has nothing to do with it. Things have always worked well for us, however, after 60 he began using Viagra with great results. A few months ago the Viagra stopped working. He tried using a higher dosage with the same result. Each failure makes it that much worse since now all he does is worry about it. When you do that, it's over before you even begin. But it's very difficult not to feel aprehensive when your partner is not willing to forego sex (I know I'm not ready to give it up).

He's just been to the urologist, and now out of desperation we're going to try a penile pump. Maybe that in combination with Viagra will overcome his anxiety and improve things. I certainly hope so. You should be able to continue having sex as long as you're healthy regardless of age.

Thumbs up Re: is there sex after 60?

Yes there is sex after 60, 70, 80 and beyond! First item, visit his Doctor and be perfectly honest...Doctors have heard this before (from me) and there is magic out there there was non-existent 5 or so years ago. All men will need some help at one time or the other! Don't suffer in silence...get going and enjoy what you used to enjoy!

Re: Sex life over at 60?

Beside Viagra and the other pills...penis pump seems to be an alternative.

Though I have not tried it myself, I heard from some old men that there is a guru in Indonesia that is very good at massaging the penis and it will response without medication. I am not asking you to fly there....but...

To my knowledge, he uses his fingers with some oilment to rub and warm the lenght of the penis all the way back to near anus. This is because our penis is in fact very long and the end of it is just infront and next to the anus. He rub vogorously to both sides of the penis nearest to the anus...not inside the anus.

Also, in that area, there are alot of blood supplying arteries that supply blood to the penis to force it to erect. At the same time, the muscle there has weaken or stiff thus cannot control and prevent the blood from flowing out...resulting in the inability to erect.

The massage and the medicated oilment is meant to loosen and relax the muscle there and make it become flexible again.

This is not a myth.

Re: Sex life over at 60?

Many things can kill the sex drive.

Low testosterone
High estradiol E2

Antidepressants SSRI meds
Hair restore stuff

The most common at that age is low testostereone & high estradiol E2.

Both can be corrected.

High E2 can be lowered to the bottom 1/4 of the range with Arimidex if it is over range, expensive. If it is just high then DIM plus Zinc can lower it in many men.

For low "T", the self injected testosterone cyp at 100mg per week with a 1cc syring & 1/2" needle injected into the thigh will restore the levels to the upper 1/4 of the range for most men. The Testosterone cyp from a compounding pharmacy is about $60 for a 3 month supply. Need prescription.

The old method was to give 200mg or 300mg once a month.

Higher doses at longer times is not good. It gives high"T" for a week then lows for the last week. During the highs the body takes the excess & turns it into estrogen E2 which conteracts the "T" on the sex drive.

Self inject with a 1cc syringe 27ga 1/2" needle into the thigh.

If all that fails then research Tri-Mix #5 Self injection for the penis. Need prescription. Much better thatn implants or pumps. Self inject with a .3cc syringe with a 30ga 1/2" needle

Good luck
