Are you feeling “asexual” these days? Have no desire or interest in being intimate with your partner? You could be suffering from low libido. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that 31% of men and 43% of women suffer from sexual inadequacy at some point in their lives.
A low libido does cause a lack of sexual desire, however, it can also affect your life in other ways. Your libido is your life energy which fuels motivation and provides a sense of well-being. A low libido may also be an indication of a more serious condition such as thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, cancer, heart problems or kidney disease. It is the libido that is commonly used to measure one’s state of health.
