Question

My testosterone levels weren't what they used to be as I've aged, which seems to be a normal trend among men. I've started taking a supplement from Amazon and can feel a difference in energy.

My sexual desire has also returned, but I want to be able to last a little longer in bed. Sometimes I'll reach orgasm in 2-minutes, other times it can take up to 5-6 minutes.

Is it true that taking a testosterone supplement will also make me last longer in bed?

For men, testosterone (or the lack of it) can affect the body in many ways.

Studies show that testosterone can affect bone mass, muscles, and libido.

Men naturally produce less testosterone as they get older, although other physiological conditions (i.e., injury, obesity, diabetes) can affect these levels as well.

Because testosterone affects a person's sex drive, it's natural to think that a supplement will help one last longer in bed.

Does it help you last longer?

While reports show boosted testosterone levels may help with conditions like erectile dysfunction if testosterone levels were below normal, it won't help for premature ejaculation.

Overall, a testosterone supplement can help increase your sexual desire and may make it easier to get an erection, but it won't necessarily help with stamina or ejaculation times.

Potential Side Effects

Testosterone supplements can also come with several side effects, such as:

  • Depression
  • Heart Problems
  • Aggression
  • Liver Toxicity
  • Infertility
  • Breast enlargement ( gynecomastia)
  • Stimulation of the bone marrow to make too many red blood cells which could cause clotting

Alternate Treatments to Last Longer in Bed

About 1 in 3 men report earlier than desired ejaculation.

There are many options specifically for men that want to prolong intercourse. Some of these treatment options include:

  • Delay sprays or wipes
  • Kegel exercises that will help strengthen your pelvic floor muscle
  • The edging technique or squeeze technique
  • Prescription medications or antidepressants
  • Thick or desensitizing condoms
  • Changing up your sex positions

Takeaways

Realistically, you want to take testosterone supplements to address a specific issue rather than generic, hypothetical benefits.

Typically, it's better to improve your testosterone levels naturally through diet, exercise, and avoidance of drugs that affect your levels (i.e., cigarettes and alcohol).

If you'd like to specifically address performance issues in bed it would be best to seek an option that is designed to do just that.
