They also gave routine blood samples for the study.The study discovered that men with hypersexuality had almost twice the levels of oxytocin as the control group.It also discovered that after seven weeks of behavioral therapy, the oxytocin levels fell significantly, until they were just slightly above the control group.“There is a lack of knowledge regarding the pathophysiology underlying hypersexual disorder, and this is the first study to indicate a role for oxytocin’s involvement,” lead researcher Andreas Chatzittofis, MD, PhD, told Healio.Why the men had higher oxytocin levels is unknown.
