Low Sex Drive Q&A
What is low sex drive?
Low sex drive, sexual arousal disorder, or low libido, is a lack of interest in sex and intimate relationships. Both men and women might experience a low sex drive. Although your change in sexual desire can occur at any age, both men and women may experience a decline in libido around age 40.
What causes a low sex drive in women?
Women experience a decrease in their sex drive around age 40 due to changes in estrogen hormone levels.
However, many women go through life with low libido or an inability to get aroused for many reasons. These conditions are known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) or inhibited sexual desire (ISD) and characterized by a lack or absence of desire for sexual activity or sexual fantasy.
What many women don’t realize is that these are common problems, and treatment is available to improve sexual desire and health.
What causes a low sex drive in men?
Like women, men experience a decrease in sex drive around age 40 due to changes in testosterone levels. If your low sex drive lasts three or more months, the experienced physicians at Balanced Medical Solutions recommend you schedule an evaluation. Your low libido may be a sign of an underlying health issue that shouldn’t be ignored, including medical conditions such as atherosclerosis or hormonal changes.
What can I expect during a low sex drive evaluation?
You can expect a thorough evaluation from the sexual health experts at Balanced Medical Solutions when you come to the office seeking help for your low sex drive. The team asks detailed questions about your symptoms, sexual history, medical history, lifestyle, and stress levels. To get to the root cause of your low libido, the team runs thorough and effective lab tests.
Balanced Medical Solutions offers office visits for all regular patients and charges only $99 for your initial evaluation, which includes lab work. Your additional lab work after the first assessment is also only $99.
How is low sex drive treated?
When it comes to treating your low sex drive, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. The physicians at Balanced Medical Solutions develop personalized plans that address the root cause of your low libido to align with your sexual health goals.
Your treatment plan may include:
- Prescription medications, such as Oxytocin
