Causes of Loss of Libido

Testosterone levels changes during menopauseIt is important to understand what menopausal women are facing and what may cause lack of libido, in order to find effective treatment. Causes may be psychological or physical and also include other menopausal symptoms such as vaginal dryness and night sweats. Psychological and physical causes can be addressed with a number of treatment methods.

Many women who are expecting a baby can discover that they are experiencing a reduction in libido. This is completely natural and common. This article describes why this might happen, such as fatigue as a result of pregnancy, morning sickness, and anxiety over your baby's arrival.

Hormonal Causes of Loss of Libido

During menopause, one of the most common identifiable causes of loss of libido is hormonal imbalance. Reductions in the levels of three major hormones can contribute to the reduction of sexual drive and energy.


Estrogen plays a vital role in female sexuality by increasing sensations, assisting in the vaginal lubrication, and maintaining the health of vaginal tissue.

As a woman approaches menopause, her body begins to produce less estrogen. This may cause a host of symptoms that can contribute to a woman's loss of libido.

Couple at odds: loss of libido has a significant effect on a woman's intimate lifeFor example, drops in estrogen are primarily responsible for hot flashes, night sweats, irregular periods, and vaginal dryness, all of which can cause or contribute to loss of libido.

Androgens/ Testosterone

As with estrogen, the body begins to produce lower levels of androgens (e.g. testosterone) with age. Experts believe that this drop in androgens can also cause women to experience loss of libido around the time of menopause.


Progesterone hormones are also integral to maintaining sexual health. When levels are too low during menopause, the resulting irregular periods, fatigue and other menopause symptoms can cause loss of libido.

While hormonal change is often a major cause of loss of libido during menopause, other factors can also contribute to a woman's loss of libido. Read on to learn about the other potential causes of loss of libido.

That is not the case at all

I'm not forcing anything on anyone all I'm doing is posting a warning because doctors and drug companies are lying. What they are doing is painting a picture that their drugs are healthy, like vitamins for your brain. But the reality is that they are powerful depressive drugs, many many more times depressive than alcohol. And the problem with prescription psychotropics is that their effects are slow to accumulate. I guess I might compare these drugs to slipping into a chemical winter depression very slowly. Like I said all anyone should look for when they read about a drug is whether or not it causes sexual dysfunction and low libido

I think your internist is correct about

The B vitamins.
I think vitamin B6 is important for both serotonin and dopamine. I recommend that you take both forms, the pyridoxine and p-5-p forms. It's a good idea to increase the B6 until your dream recall is about 2 to 3 dreams per week. That means you wake up and recall one dream 2 to 3 times per week.
You could take a B complex and some extra p-5-p to start. If that helps and you can afford it you might consider getting some tests done to see if you have any deficiencies. The fatigue could be about your adrenal glands or it could be about neurotransmitters (catecholamines - dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine) that signal your adrenal glands
