Lack of sexual desire is a sexual health problem commonly believed to affect only women. It is believed that men are obsessed with sex and are therefore always in the mood for sex, but this can’t be any farther from the truth.
It is not the case that the only thing men think about is sex and all they ever want is sex. As a matter of fact, there are otherwise healthy men who have very little interest in sex.
Just like women, men can also experience a lack of sexual desire and there are a number of factors that could be responsible.
A man usually finds sexual health problems more difficult and challenging to deal with than a woman because of societal expectations and male stereotypes.
Are you experiencing a lack of sexual desire? If you are, you should know that you are not alone – there are several other men experiencing the same problem, and with treatment, you should get your sexual life back.
These are some of the factors that could be responsible for your lack of sexual desire:
- Alcohol and drug use
- Too little or too much exercise
- Relationship problems
- Certain medications that can lower testosterone levels
- Sleep problems
It is important that you see your doctor and also make changes where you should.
