Loss of Male Libido

  1. Reduced sexual attraction — Problems in relationships can lead to tensions which might lead to loss of sexual attraction between couples.
  2. Trust issues — Poor communication between partners can lead to a lack of intimacy that is needed to initiate sex.
  3. Sexual Problems — issues such as impotence, painful sex, erectile dysfunction, inability to orgasm, can lead to loss of libido.
  4. Hormonal Imbalance — Certain biological issues may decrease the production of the male sex hormone testosterone which is necessary to maintain the male libido.
  5. Anxiety and Stress — A person suffering from high levels of anxiety and stress is not in a comfortable state of mind to initiate sex and is often tired and fatigued.
  6. Medications — Certain medications and supplements have the side effect of reducing the levels of testosterone hormones in the body which in turn affects the libido. Medicines for depression, high blood pressure, enlarged prostate, and seizures usually have this side effect.
  7. Other than the above-mentioned common causes, other conditions cause low sex drives like unhealthy lifestyle, depression, cancer, thyroid disease, diabetes, cardiac issues, and alcoholism.
