Causes of low sexual desire

Low sex desire is a very common sexual disorder.  It occurs when one partner does not feel intimate or close to the other.  Often the problem is result of a diminished affection for the other partner, power struggles between the two partners and not having enough time to be alone in order to be intimate.  Low desire can also be a result of a strict or religious background where sexual intimacy is often associated with scorn and negativity.  The problem can also occur when there is a history of sexual trauma at an earlier age or sexual abuse by a parent or relative.  Lack of desire is also associated with medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, thyroid deficiency, and arthritis.  Drug abuse and excessive alcohol consumption are culprits in causing decreased sexual desire.  There are literally hundreds of medications that are associated with the side effect of inhibited sexual desire.  These include anti-depressants, Paxil, Zoloft, and Prozac.  Hormone deficiency is another common culprit such as a decreased testosterone in men and decreased estrogen in women as is so common following menopause or surgical removal of the ovaries.  In addition to these physical causes of decreased sexual desire, there are psychological conditions such as depression, stress, fatigues, lack of sleep, and lifestyle problems such as career changes and martial discord that can be a primary cause or can contribute to the problem.  Finally, there is a problem referred to as fear of failure that impacts both men and women.  If a man has impotence, premature ejaculation, restarted ejaculation or a women has painful intercourse or does achieve an orgasm can lose interest because they don’t want to experience repeated failure and embarrassment in the bedroom.
