What causes low libido in men?
Depression is a disease. It is very different from just feeling unhappy. Depression translates to a major mental health problem that interferes with almost all aspects of your life, from education, relationships to work.
It causes low sex drive, especially when the partner is the cause of depression. If you find out that you are depressed, look for a qualified medical practitioner to assess the levels of your depression and recommend a suitable anti-depressant for you.
2. Low self-esteem
Self-esteem is the overall opinion of yourself. The ability to identify one’s strengths and weaknesses and learn how to manage them.
In a relationship, partners with poor body image and low confidence have low sexual desire. In men, it affects their erection leading to poor performance in bed.
Also, research shows that men who masturbate are low performers, not due to masturbation, but the feeling of guilt and ideologies that ‘masturbation reduces bedroom capabilities’.
The love for the bottle can make you have a low sex drive. This is because alcohol interferes with the production of testosterone, a male sexual hormone for normal sexual development and functions.
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, men, who drink 14 bottles of alcohol in a week, are at a greater risk of having low libido. Men should consider quitting alcoholic beverages to evade health deterioration.
