Low Libido

Low libido can have multiple causes. It can be caused by hormonal imbalances, psychological factors, relationship problems, medications, chronic illnesses, substance abuse, and fatigue and lack of sleep.

Low libido, or reduced sexual desire, can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most common causes include:

  1. Hormonal imbalances: Low levels of testosterone, estrogen, and other hormones can affect sexual desire and function. Hormonal changes that occur during menopause or andropause (male menopause) can also lead to low libido.

  2. Psychological factors: Stress, anxiety, and depression can affect a person's ability to feel sexual desire. Trauma, such as sexual abuse, can also affect sexual desire.

  3. Relationship problems: Conflicts with a partner or dissatisfaction with a relationship can affect sexual desire.

  4. Medications: Certain medications, such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and blood pressure medications, can affect sexual desire.

  5. Chronic illnesses: Certain chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, heart disease, and neurological disorders, can affect sexual desire and function.

  6. Substance abuse: Alcohol and drug abuse can affect sexual desire and function.

  7. Fatigue and lack of sleep: Fatigue and lack of sleep can affect the energy levels and mood and thus the sexual desire.

It is important to note that low libido can also be a symptom of an underlying medical condition, so it is important to consult a qualified healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
