Stress
Physical stress from a major injury, a car accident or from an operation depletes testosterone. Sometimes the decline is dramatic and results in early emotional, physical and sexual complications. Those patients with higher testosterone levels to start with (before the accident) usually have a faster recovery and develop fewer complications.

Emotional stress is another way that testosterone is depleted. Continuous rejections, failures and criticisms all take their toll on men by lowering testosterone. At work, at home and even self-directed, put-downs abound. Constant exposure to negativity in the man's environment can really drive down testosterone levels. Learning stress management and relaxation skills will go a long way in improving your resilience to any testosterone decline.
