Libido is the term for a person’s sex drive or desire to have sex and this varies significantly between every person. Some people have a high libido and enjoy frequent sex while others have a low libido and may not even want to be in a sexual relationship. Libido can also be affected by medical conditions, hormonal levels, certain medications, and quality of one’s life and relationship.
What Causes Low Libido?
Low libido can be related to hormonal changes as we age. It might also be caused by mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, or stress. Antidepressants that are classified as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or certain blood pressure medications can also be affecting sex drive. Alcohol and drug use (including tobacco) can also have a negative impact on a person’s sex drive.
Low Libido for Men
For men, low testosterone levels, as a part of aging, can cause a decrease in libido and affect the strength of erections. Replacing testosterone to optimal levels can improve these symptoms.
Low Libido for Women
For women, low libido is a common problem that is not often addressed or treated during routine medical care. Hormone replacement can significantly improve sexual drive and in turn, improve quality of life.
