What causes low libido?
There are many causes of low libido in men and women, and it’s normal to occasionally experience symptoms. But extended periods of low sex drive may indicate an underlying health concern. Some causes of low libido in men include:
- Low testosterone (Low T) levels
- Prolonged use of some medications, such as blood pressure medicine
- Restless leg syndrome (RLS), which may lead to erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Depression or taking antidepressants
- Chronic illness
- Sleep apnea
If you’re experiencing a low libido along with other symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, depression, or erectile dysfunction, you could have an underlying condition. Don’t ignore the symptoms. Seek the help of a medical professional before your condition worsens.
Is there a natural approach to increasing libido?
You can do several things to increase your libido naturally. In some cases, you may need to modify your diet, manage your stress better, or get more sleep. Other natural remedies include:
- Drinking less alcohol
- Eating certain foods that increase blood flow to your genitals
- Exercising and feeling good about your body
- Meditating to relieve stress
- Communicating with your partner
- Consulting a men’s health care professional to ensure your overall good health
Although natural remedies may help increase your libido temporarily, they may not address underlying, more serious health conditions.
