We want to find the factors that harm sexual desire and relationships and their treatment methods.
Doctors say that various physical and psychological factors may have affected couples’ sexual desire. This article deals with the most common ones that affect the coldness and reduction of relations between spouses.
You may be one of those people who do a lot of things well under stress. But sexuality is not like other activities. Work stress, financial problems, caring for a sick family member, and other stressors can reduce libido. To keep your stress level under control, learn stress management techniques or use the advice of a counselor or doctor.
2. Problems in relationships
Unsolved problems in the relationship between husband and wife are one of the most common killers of sexual desire. For women in particular, emotional intimacy is a major component of sexual desire. Hidden differences and unspoken dissatisfaction, difficulties in communicating, betraying the trust of the spouse and other obstacles to an intimate relationship can destroy sexual desire.
3. Alcohol and drugs
Alcohol and drugs can kill your libido, and even if your libido doesn’t go away, being a heavy drinker can kill your partner’s. This is also true for the use of drugs and stimulants.
4. Lack of sleep
If you have lost your libido, you may wake up too early or go to bed too late. Or maybe you have insomnia or sleep apnea. These sleep problems can disrupt libido. Lack of sleep leads to fatigue and exhaustion, and fatigue destroys libido.
5. baby care
Taking care of a baby does not in itself destroy the libido. But men and women may not find a chance for intimate relationship due to being busy with children. In these cases, by taking the help of a babysitter or another person, strengthen your relationship with your wife for some hours of the day. A new baby to

Medications may commonly suppress libido. Among these drugs are the following:
• Antihypertensive drugs
• Antihistamine drugs (anti-allergic)
• Oral contraceptives
• Chemotherapy drugs
• Anti-AIDS drugs
• Finasteride (male anti-sex hormone drug for the treatment of prostate enlargement)
• Synthetic progesterones such as medroxyprogesterone
Changing the type or dosage of the drug may solve the sexual problem caused by it. Some other medications may also affect libido. If your libido starts to decrease after starting a new medication, consult your doctor. Never stop a medication without consulting your doctor.
7. Mental image of the body
If your self-esteem is hurt because you are not satisfied with your body image, you may lose your sense of attractiveness. For example, feeling ashamed of being overweight (even when you’re not) can decrease your libido.
If your partner has these feelings, you can help them by reassuring them about their attractiveness. You should pay attention to the other side of this equation: exercise and physical activity not only increase your self-esteem, but also increase your libido.
Being overweight or obese is associated with lack of pleasure and sexual desire and problems in sexual activity. The reason for this effect is not entirely clear, but it may be related to the reduction of self-esteem, unsatisfactory relationships, social stigma and other psychological factors.
9. erectile dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is another type of sexual disorder that causes a decrease in libido. But men with erectile dysfunction worry about their sexual function, and this constant worry may secondarily inhibit their libido.
10. Testosterone deficiency
Increasing testosterone increases libido. As men age, the amount of testosterone decreases gradually. But not all men who lose libido have low testosterone, although many do. Testosterone is also related to libido in women. But the hormonal balance in women is much more complicated than in men and many factors play a role in it. Currently, it is not known whether testosterone treatment can be an effective and safe way to increase sexual desire in women as well as in men.
It may not seem very fair. But many antidepressants—and depression itself—inhibit libido. But your sex drive may be a sign of depression. Clinical depression is a serious but treatable disease.
About half of women experience a decrease in libido around the time of menopause, even though they believe they should continue to have an active sex life. Menopausal symptoms such as vaginal dryness during intercourse may make intercourse difficult. But hormonal changes during menopause are only part of the problem. A woman who is getting older and is worried about the decrease in her sexual desire, should pay attention to the quality of her relationship with her husband, her mental image of her body and self-esteem, the drugs she is taking, and her general physical health.
13. lack of intimacy
Sexual intercourse without intimacy destroys sexual desire. Intimacy is not the only keyword for sexual activity. If your sex life has cooled, try to spend more time with your partner for non-sexual intimacy. Talk to your wife, exchange text messages, hug her. When intimacy is established between you and your partner, sexual desire will also return.
