Research at men’s health clinics shows that libido is a person’s overall sexual drive or desire for sexual activity. Biologically the sexual hormones and associated neurotransmitters that act upon the nucleus accumbens regulate libido
levels in human beings.

Causes Of Low Libido

Low Testosterone

Testosterone is an important male hormone. In men, it’s mostly produced in the testicles. Testosterone is responsible for building muscles and bone mass, and for stimulating sperm production. One’s testosterone levels also factor into
one’s sex drive, When one’s testosterone levels decrease, one’s desire for sex also decreases.

Sleep Loss

Sleep loss is another common libido killer. This is not only in old men, but even young men who spends long hours onto their jobs, hence their libido tends to decrease. Another problem would be obstructive sleep apnea. This condition
interrupts your breathing throughout the night, making it difficult to settle into a deep, restful sleep. This result in daylight fatigue that can dampen your sex drive.


Some medication given to treat health issues such as anxiety, depression, blood pressure, diabetes, cancer frequently contribute largely to low libido. Most antidepressants, antipsychotics and psychiatric medications broadly
can have a negative impact on libido.


Stress being a feeling of emotional or physical tension, Men’s health clinics sexual health consultants take it upon themselves to understand and individually customise every consultation independently following the nature of
the community we serve.

Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is the uncontrollable urge to move your legs. A study has found that men with RLS are at a higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction (ED) than those without RLS. ED occurs
when a man can’t have or maintain an erection.

Researchers discovered that men who have RLS occurrences at least five times per month are about 50 per cent more likely to develop ED than men without RLS.

Also, men who had RLS episodes more frequently were even more likely to become impotent this notion alone should prompt one to contact us
