- Drugs and alcohol Drinking excess amounts of alcohol can reduce your sex drive, so it’s a good idea to moderate your intake to no more than three to four units a day if you’re a man and no more than two to three units a day if you’re a woman.
- Getting older people lose some interest in sex as they get older, mainly due to falling levels of sex hormones, age-related health problems, or the side effects of medication. Older men especially can develop low testosterone levels, which can cause fatigue, depression, and a reduced sex drive As women start to approach the menopause, levels of the female hormone oestrogen begin to fall, which can affect libido. Women can also suffer from low testosterone levels, especially after a hysterectomy. Testosterone is another hormone which can affect sex drive.
- Hormonal problems low libido may be caused by an underactive thyroid
- Other medical conditions Diseases such as diabetes; conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol; and HIV drugs, some hair-loss remedies, and other medications can negatively affect sexual desire.
- Medication Certain medications can sometimes reduce libido, such as: medication for high blood pressure, including diuretics medications for depression, including SSRI antidepressants medications for seizures (fits) medications, such as haloperidol, commonly used to treat psychosis (a mental condition where a person can’t distinguish between reality and their imagination), as well as many other conditions medicines such as cimetidine, finasteride and cyproterone, which block the effects or reduce the production of testosterone combined hormonal contraception (pill, ring or patch), although this is rare
