Do you know what lack of sexual desire is? It is nothing more than when an individual loses interest in sexual relations with their partner, there is no will or desire for intimacy, this can affect both men and women and can occur for different reasons, however it usually affects men more than women.

This can cause serious problems in a couple’s relationship, as it deteriorates, communication is lost, interest is lost and it can become a reason for a breakup.
One of the main symptoms of loss of sexual desire is to avoid meeting your partner when you know that sexual act may occur, excuses appear such as: “I’m going to watch a very interesting TV show”, “I need to tidy up the kitchen”, “I need to finish an urgent job”, if you use any of these phrases frequently, it is time to evaluate what is going on, as you may be losing sexual desire. Many times stress, daily responsibilities and other priorities come first, and that is when sex is left aside, which should not happen because it is a priority in a relationship, which helps you nurture love, to lower daily stress, provides benefits for your health and enjoy intimate pleasure with your partner.
Among the main causes of loss of sexual desire are: hormonal alterations, compliance with specific medication, chronic diseases, metabolic diseases, sexual dysfunctions (erectile dysfunction, vaginismus, anorgasmia), relationship problems, stress and anxiety, fatigue, fears, monotony and having an unsatisfactory sex life.
