What is low libido?
A low libido is a decrease in sexual desire and drive, and it can occur in both women and men. As we age, we lose hormones that contribute to our libido. For women, menopause, pregnancy and breastfeeding can all lower estrogen levels. Additionally, they can make intercourse more uncomfortable. Testosterone levels peak at age 20, and drop close to zero by 40. Absent libido is often the result between the ages of 40-45. Menopause can cause vaginal atrophy symptoms including vaginal laxity, dryness and itching. For men, testosterone levels begin to gradually decrease at the age of 30. Not only will men experience shifts in sexual desire and drive, but erectile dysfunction can also develop. All of these factors contribute to decreased libido, but there are treatments that can be used for libido enhancement.
