How is low libido treated?
Low libido is treated by identifying and addressing the cause. It is important to note that libido levels can naturally vary while you are in relationships and as you age. Partner dissatisfaction is the most common reason for people seeking treatment for low libido. As general advice: seek medical advice from a supportive doctor; manage any general health issues that might be causing you fatigue, such as iron deficiency anaemia, abnormal thyroid function (hyper- or hypothyroidism) and sleep apnoea; consider relationship counselling to address any relationship difficulties; where depression and/or anxiety is the cause of low sexual interest, treatment of these conditions may be beneficial; stress management strategies may help if low libido is related to stress, and; a medication review can identify certain medicines, such as antidepressants, that can affect sexual desire.
