What is Libido?
Libido or sex drive, is a person’s overall desire or interest for sexual activity. It is determined and influenced by biological, psychological, and social factors – namely hormones, work, family, personality, medical conditions, medications, lifestyle and relationship issues.
So what’s the problem?
Men of all ages suffer from a loss of libido at any point in their life due to various factors. Physical factors that can affect libido include: endocrine issues such as hypothyroidism, levels of available testosterone in the bloodstream, the effect of certain prescription medications, various lifestyle factors and the attractiveness and biological fitness of one’s partner. The problem arises as sexual desires are often an important factor in the formation and maintenance of intimate relationships in both men and women, and a lack or loss of sexual desire can adversely affect relationships. Not only does this cause personal stress but one has to remember as well that it is important to insure that every aspect of your health is in check – including your libido.
