Testosterone is an essential hormone in the human body for both men and women, but primarily for the former. It’s best known for giving men strength and hair on their bodies. Testosterone has a vast number of other effects on the human body. When testosterone levels are low in someone, there are many symptoms and side effects that are physical and emotional. Below are the symptoms of low testosterone, so that someone can see if they are suffering from it in their everyday lives.

1. Low Sex Drive

One of the first symptoms of low testosterone levels will be a diminished sex drive or interest in having sexual intercourse. As the presence of testosterone encourages this, the lack of it will make the act of sex seem less exciting and attractive to the person suffering from a deficiency. It can affect relationships and lead to depression when this symptom arises.
