“There’s this expectation that we should all be sexual beings, but the fact is, not all of us are, particularly.” ~ Liz Jensen, The Rapture
Many People Struggle with Low Libido
As the quote above points out, not everyone has the same drive for sexual intimacy. However, as people age, it is common for men and women to experience lowered sex drive.
If you suffer from this, you aren’t alone.
Known causes of decreased libido in men include mental stress, nerve diseases, hormone imbalances, drugs, old age, and testosterone decline.
Middle-aged and older men often have comorbidities such as testosterone decline, lifestyle-related diseases, urinary disorders, and depression.
Causes in women include mental health problems, such as anxiety or depression. Other causes include stress, poor body image, low self-esteem, a history of physical or sexual abuse, and previous negative sexual experiences.
The good news was that one could find solutions to this problem in medical and mental health care providers.

How Common Are Libido Problems?
One in five men and as high as 70% of women experience low libido. This is not surprising given our high-stress, fast-paced, rapidly changing world. Couples face a myriad of stressors each day. Few understand how to mitigate stress. Add to that generally lousy health and health habits in the West, and it’s no wonder libido is a significant problem in middle-aged individuals.
Who Can I Consult With to Resolve My Libido Challenges?
So, who is the best provider to help you assess and treat your libido problem? The first step should be to meet with your primary care doctor. For women, it may also be wise to see your gynecologist. Additionally, if your libido is rooted in mental health concerns, consider meeting with a psychologist as part of your solution. If you have tried those options without success, consider Tiger Medical, which has a comprehensive, root-cause approach to all medical conditions. It is essential to note libido and sexual dysfunction can be an indicator of a more significant problem.
