Low testosterone levels can be one of the culprits for low sex drive in men along with other factors such as stress, sleep disorders, excessive consumption of alcohol and prescription medication for depression and high blood pressure.
Women can also experience a decrease in their libido that they would like to eventually remedy.
Loss of sexual desire in women can be attributed to the onset of menopause, hectic work or home environment, dry vagina etc.
- Reducing stress levels, alcohol consumption and smoking can help in raising libido levels.
- Relationship counselling and conflict resolution among couples has also been shown to improve libido in both men and women.
- When it comes to men, a decrease in sex drive is typically related to low testosterone levels and other stress related factors and bad lifestyle choices.
- There are amino acids like D-Aspartic acid that tend to heighten the presence of testosterone in your system, causing your libido to increase.
- Even though there are devices and supplements in the market that claim to improve arousal, they lack rigorous testing and monitoring, and the results are not backed by proper studies.
“The quest for an aphrodisiac—drugs, drinks, or foods that increase sex drive—goes back to the ancient Romans, beginning with oysters.”
Never change your blood pressure or depression medication without the explicit approval and supervision of your doctor.
