Influence of regular intake of antibiotics on men's sexual desire

From: Michael

Hello, doctor! I have this problem. The last two months has lost attraction and desire. Before this took antibiotics for about 3 months. Could this somehow affect how it is now to recover? Thank you.

Answer: "Hello, Michael! Yes, indeed, decreased sex drive could occur on the background of the prolonged use of antibiotics. If no organic lesions and related sexual problems do not exist, the potency needs to recover. But to find out for sure, I recommend to take total testosterone, LH, SHBG, TSH, prolactin, estradiol, blood sugar and to address on reception to the sexologist about medicines to delay ejaculation. I wish you health".
