What causes low libido?
Even though sex is a physical act, so many additional factors influence your sex drive. Your desire depends on a delicate balance of essential physical, psychological, and relational elements.
Numerous physical factors can affect your sex drive. Medications, surgeries, diseases, and pain, among others, can hamper your arousal. Hormone changes during menopause and pregnancy can also cause you to lose interest in sex.
Low libido doesn’t always have a physical cause. Psychological factors have a strong influence on arousal. For example, you may not be interested in sex if you’re depressed, stressed, or unconfident. Negative sexual experiences in the past can also influence your physical desire in the present.
Your relationship with your partner strongly influences your libido. Intimacy usually requires emotional closeness, so if you don’t feel connected or supported by your partner, you may experience decreased sex drive.
What physical conditions are associated with low libido?
Some of the physical factors influencing sex drive are listed above. However, two intimate hormone-related conditions create significant hurdles for sexual satisfaction: erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness.
Erectile dysfunction makes it difficult to get or keep an erection. Men with erectile dysfunction often develop performance anxiety, which worsens the dysfunction and decreases sex drive.
Vaginal dryness often appears as a result of estrogen dips, especially during menopause. It makes sex uncomfortable and undesirable. Eventually, a woman may want to avoid it altogether.
How do you treat low libido?
Testosterone levels in men and estrogen in women contribute to sexual satisfaction. If Dr. Kunz determines hormones play a role in your sex drive, he uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to restore normal hormone levels.
Dr. Kunz uses BioTE™ bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, a revolutionary pellet injection system to help create hormonal stability in your body. The custom-tailored pellets release a steady supply of missing hormones into your system. Many people experience elevated libido once their hormones are level.
Don’t let your low libido hamper your sex life any longer. Contact Dr. Kunz online or over the phone to set up an evaluation.
