Causes of the Low Libido

You rarely think about your libido, right? Well, your sexual drive and sexual drive of your partner may differ, so it is no surprise they may not be eager to have sex every time your partner is into some in bed activities. But when you don't want sex for long periods of time and no stimulation from your partner or even porn helps, probably it's time for you to learn what is low libido. Low libido is a low overall sexual drive, which results in you wanting sex rarely or not wanting it at all. Low libido is a common problem for both men and women, but the only cause of low libido that they have in common are quite limited. Now, let's have a detailed look at what causes low libido.

General Causes of Low Libido

1. Exhaustion

Regardless of whether you are a man or a woman, when you are exhausted you don't want sex. With age we are getting exhausted quicker than when we were young. So, it is no surprise that you prefer few hours of a sleep to few hours of sex. Your life style can also cause exhaustion, thus causing low libido.

2. Alcoholism

A glass of wine makes you feel amorous, a few pints of beer can make you feel horny, but when you drink to much alcohol, your libido gets very very low, regardless of your gender. So, next time when you are about to get drunk with your friends, think of your sexual drive.

3. Stress

When you are in the state of constant stress and pressure, sex is unlikely to be your top priority. Stress makes you feel exhausted and nervous, and it has a negative impact on level of hormones, so there is no surprise that your sexual drive isn't in its best shape. And even games for couples can`t help you.

Causes of Low Libido in Women

1. Relationship Issues

Emotional closeness is an important part of sexual prelude for a lot of women, so, such things as lack of connection with the partner, unresolved conflicts, partner's infidelity, and poor communication when it comes to sexual needs, may result in a woman feeling emotionally detached, thus causing a low libido.

2. Painful Sexual Experience

Sexual abuse can often cause female low libido, but there is no need to get that dramatic. Even one painful sexual experience can lower the sexual drive of a woman.

3. Baby Blues

Pregnancy may cause a low libido, but if a woman has a baby blues, no wonder that sex is the last thing on her mind.

Causes of Low Libido in Men

1. Low Testosterone

Testosterone is an important male hormone, which is produced in testicles and is responsible for muscles and bone building, as well as for sperm production. The lower your Testosterone level, the lower your sexual drive. A decrease in Testosterone is normal with ageing, but a rapid drop of these hormones signifies serious health problems that require an immediate visit to a doctor.

2. Depression

Depression can alter our life completely. A lot of things that brings us pleasure seem absolutely useless, when we are depressed, and sex is not an exception. You libido is having hard times when you are depressed, and while antidepressants can stabilize your overall state, they make it even worse for your libido.

3. Sleep Disorders

Men's sleep disorders are linked to low testosterone, bet you can make a connection on your own.
