Cause of Low Libido

Discover some of the most common causes of low libido.

A recent study in the Journal of American Medical Association showed that 31% of men and 43% of women suffer some form of sexual inadequacy at some point in their lives. Common symptoms of sexual dysfunction in men and women include a lack of desire, performance anxiety, premature ejaculation or pain during intercourse.

Low libido is caused by a number of physiological, emotional, and lifestyle factors. If you were told otherwise, and that this was just a “normal” symptom of aging, you might be surprised to find out there are multiple causes and successful, safe treatments to apply.

The body reacts to stress by releasing adrenaline and cortisol. Chronic stress, in particular, can interfere with your body’s hormone levels, and result in a low libido.

Depression can change the body’s biochemistry and therefore reduce libido and some medications commonly used to treat depression may also lower libido as a side effect.

Too much alcohol can impair your nervous system and lead to fatigue — making it difficult to become aroused. Other drugs like marijuana suppress the pituitary gland, which regulates the production of testosterone.

Lack of sleep can elevate cortisol levels, which also leads to low libido. Erectile dysfunction often generates low libido as well, as do hormonal imbalances.

Women may experience low libido during menopause for a number of reasons. Estrogen levels drop suddenly during these years, causing vaginal tissue to become dry. That, in turn, can lead to discomfort and pain during intercourse and discourage a woman’s sexual desire. Menopause can also lower testosterone, the hormone that boosts libido in women as well as men.

Serious health conditions, such as cancer or kidney disease, can suppress testosterone levels and reduce sperm production.

When a couple is fighting or feeling distant from each other, they’re less likely to want to be intimate. Communication problems, anger, conflicts, resentment — all these negative emotions can carry over into the bedroom.

Who says they only give a shit about themselves?

I think it's kind of selfish for the other spouse to make them choose between their family together, and their sex life.
As for all the different causes of a low libido, what if it IS stress, depression, a medical issue, and they have no plans for doing anything to fix those problems?
Divorce, right? And once again, the person with the higher libido gets blamed, because they weren't "understanding of the problem." It's no-win for that person, you see that, right?
