Low Sexual Desire – Lack of Libido
This is a very common sexual difficulty. Loss of desire can either be partial, or total. Partial loss of desire means that while you may have stopped initiating sexual contact with your partner, you will respond to their approaches. Total loss of desire means that you don’t want to have sexual contact at all.
There are many reasons why lack of sexual desire occurs. Life events such as bereavement, pressure at work and day-to-day stresses may mean that sex becomes of secondary importance. A difficult childbirth may also cause loss of desire, and if you are a new Mum, you may be so overwhelmed by caring for your new baby that you lose yourself for a while. Loss of desire is also a well-known side-effect of some medications, such as anti-depressants, and depressive illnesses.
Low sexual desire or lack of libido can often be a response to dissatisfaction, disappointment, anger or unhappiness in your relationship as a couple. Sex therapy helps you to identify the cause of the loss of libido and to work together with me to effect change.
