Low Libido


Low Libido

If you've noticed a decrease in your libido, it could be due to a number of factors. The solution may be simple, as in the case where the culprit is a side effect from a medication you were prescribed. It could be the result of the physical and mental anguish that comes with dealing with unrelated chronic pain, or it may be hormonal.

Low Libido in Women


A diminished sex drive in women can be caused by a drop in hormone levels. This can be due to natural phases of life such as menopause or breast feeding, or an unexpected hormonal imbalance. In particular low estrogen and low progesterone can be responsible for a low libido.

In the case of an imbalance, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may be considered as a treatment option.

Some other physical and psychological causes for a diminished libido include:


  • Pain during sex

  • Side effects from medication

  • Fatigue

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Stress

  • Issues with your self-esteem


Low Libido in Men

There is a strong correlation between low testosterone and lack of sex drive in men. Low-T may be the culprit behind your reduced libido and may even directly lead to thing such as depression and fatigue.

There are a number of other factors that can lower your sex drive. Some of these include:

  • Medication

  • Poor sleep habits

  • Stress

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Fatigue

  • Drug or alcohol abuse
