How do I find out if I have low Testosterone?

Ladies, if you are reading this, then you will encounter situations in which a husband who would want to rip your body off in the good old days, now finds excuses not to even touch you.  Maybe you initiate sex, and he falls off to sleep.  He rarely shows interest in your body dressed in lingerie, he refuses to make love to you outright by finding an excuse (stress, being tired, or in a defense mechanism, he can even put the blame on you by telling you something that might hurt you; for instance, if you have gained weight, he might tell you that he is not attracted to you, or if you have been busy raising a kid, he might blame it on you saying that you have no time for him, or if you have had an affair, he might say that he is no longer in love with you), or avoids situations in which he might have to make love (coming late to bed, complaining of health issues, etc.). 

Men who might be doing some of the things above will realize that their reluctance to engage in sexual activity is a result of hormonal imbalance, particularly lack of a hormone called Testosterone.  Now, this is a complex health issue and while it leads to some erectile dysfunction, it is important to understand that ED is also a separate disease that can happen without low-T.  What I am talking about here is low levels of Testosterone for men in their 40s or older (men at any age can have this problem due to other health complications, particularly those who take prescription pills, and it is best to discuss this with a physician, because in those cases, it is more of a diseases and side effect of a pill, rather than natural reduction due to aging).  If you are an otherwise healthy male like me, eat healthy, workout regularly, are not taking any medications at all, and feel that things in the bedroom are not the same as they used to be even 5 or 10 years ago, it is simply that we are aging and losing Testosterone (and hence, libido) naturally. 

As I have mentioned before, my wife and I did not get much concerned with the drop in frequency of our sex (after all, we have been together for some two decades), but what caused panic to me was that sometimes I could not make myself hard at all, or the erection became quite weak before penetration that it was impossible to penetrate, or if the hardon was good enough during foreplay but if I did not penetrate immediately, it was difficult to hold it on for too long.  I did not notice premature ejaculation during this experience; on the contrary, due to the shame and embarrassment of not being able to perform, I was even unable to ejaculate outside when my wife tried to use her hands.  These are clearly signs of not enough Testosterone in the blood.  Needless to say that you can get a blood test done by your doctor to find out for sure, but if you are experiencing symptoms like mine, you need professional help.  Ladies, if your man is having such issues in bed, you will be naive to believe that he is not in love with you or that he is having an extramarital affair.  Most likely, the lack of enough Testosterone has wiped our desire for you from his brain.
