What is libido?
We often use the term ‘libido’ to refer to sex drive but it can also means a healthy state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. It’s an energy that provides us with desire or motivation.
What are the common libido problems?
Loss of libido is a common problem for both men and women, and can affect us at any time of life.
It's often linked to physical and psychological causes such as tiredness, stress and depression. Lifestyle issues such as relationship problems or too little exercise or too much alcohol have a negative effect.
There can be medical reasons too, such as thyroid problems and reduced hormone levels. Low testosterone levels lead to loss of energy and sex drive. For women, female testosterone levels drop dramatically after the menopause; for men, reduced testosterone can also cause erectile dysfunction.
