Low Libido Q & A
What is low libido?
Libido is another name for sex drive, so if you have a low libido it means you’re not in the mood for sex very often. Libido is about feeling sexual desire, and as everybody’s different, there’s no one definition of what’s normal. You could be having sex once every few months and be perfectly content, or several times a week and feel dissatisfied, so your perception of what is normal for you is the best indicator of whether or not you should seek help.
Your libido may well change over time as hormone levels rise and fall; for instance, it’s common to have an increased libido as a teenager and for libido to decrease as you get older. If you find you’re experiencing a notable change in your libido that’s negatively affecting your life, the highly experienced team of professionals at The Well for Health has a range of effective therapies for low libido.
What causes low libido?
There are both physical and psychological reasons why you may have low libido. Medical reasons include:
- Low testosterone levels
- Side effects of prescription medications
- Thyroid disorders
- Over- or underexercising
- Alcohol and drug abuse
For women, conditions such as endometriosis and fibroids can affect libido, and the onset of perimenopause often causes libido to fall.
Any problems in your relationship can have a significant effect on libido, as can life events such as having a baby or changes in your personal circumstances.
What are the treatments for low libido?
Before starting any form of treatment, it’s essential to find out the root cause of your low libido. The Well for Health team performs a series of tests to identify possible causes, for example measuring hormone levels and checking for nutrient deficiency or any evidence of disease.
They also spend time discussing your problem with you to assess the psychological factors that could be affecting your sex drive. Once they’ve gathered the information they need, they create a treatment plan to address your specific needs.
Your treatment plan contains advice on making healthier lifestyle choices that boost your well-being, for example, an exercise plan, nutritional recommendations, actions you can take to reduce stress levels and cut down any harmful habits, and ways to improve the quality of your sleep.
If your medication is causing the problem, The Well for Health team can prescribe an alternative, and the practice also offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men and women. Counseling is a key therapeutic approach for patients with depression or anxiety, and those facing relationship issues.
