Libido loss

Libido loss is common with aging due to the natural hormonal decline, which brings a decrease in sexual drive that can result in frustration.

Libido Loss

Overview
Changes to libido are common in men and women in their 40s and 50s. Women are 2-3 times more likely to be affected by a decline in sex drive as they age. Having a fluctuating desire for sex is a normal and healthy part of life. Your sex drive can change depending on several factors including depression, relationship status, mood disorders, pregnancy, medication, and stress. If you notice that you have little to no sexual desire, you can look for patterns in when and why this may be happening. If the problem isn’t addressed by making lifestyle changes and is starting to cause worry, it might be a symptom of a more significant issue.

A person’s struggle for intimacy within a relationship can be troublesome for both people involved and can cause issues such as feelings of disconnectedness, inadequacy, frustration, disappointment, and resentment.

In women, a common cause of libido loss is menopause. During the menopause transition, the physical effects of falling estrogen levels—including hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness can undermine sexual motivation and drive.
In men, low testosterone can be the culprit. Testosterone is responsible for building muscles and bone mass and for stimulating sperm production. Your testosterone levels also factor into your sex drive. When your testosterone decreases, your desire for sex also decreases.

How we can help with libido loss

While difficult for couples or individuals to discuss, it can be addressed by having an open and honest conversation with your partner about why it’s happening and what the cause is. If you can’t determine a cause and it is causing frustration or worry,  you should consult a professional who can help answer your questions, perform a full medical examination, and determine a personalized treatment plan for you to improve your libido.

Popular Treatments for Libido Loss

Alma Duo™

Alma Duo™

 

The Alma Duo is a Health Canada approved and scientifically validated treatment that sends energy deep into the tissue of the penis to rebuild blood vessels and resolve erectile dysfunction. This 15-minute treatment uses low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LI-ESWT) at five points on the penis, triggering a natural immune response from your body. This response increases the number and strength of blood vessels in the area, promoting blood flow to the penis and improving circulatory conditions for erectile dysfunction.

The diVa is a quick procedure (3–5 minutes) that improves gynecological and genitourinary health. It uses a disposable quartz dilator, which emits a precision laser beam using a hybrid fractional laser.
