What causes a low sex drive?


Life has its ups and downs, and these can have an impact on your libido.

Emma says that any of the following can affect your desire for some bedroom action: kids and the challenges of being a parent, self-esteem, your body image, the quality of your relationship, too little sleep, the menopause, post-natal issues, your general state of mind and your monthly cycle, the effects of which vary from woman to woman.

But there are other, more specific factors that can also alter your sex drive: alcohol, recreational drugs, medication and medical issues like diabetes and obesity.

Phew! It's a miracle that we're ever in the mood for sex!
