Let’s face it. No two people in a relationship or marriage have the same sex drive. People have different appetites for food, why not for sex? Having said that, if there is a huge difference between two libidos, it’s worth looking at the cause(s), and there can by many.
Below is a list of the top 8 possible causes of low libido:
1. Illness/disease and/or medications taken for it
2. Depression and/or medications taken for it
3. Weight issues/body image
6. Boredom in the bedroom
7. Menopause/hormonal changes
8. Major life changes – new baby, new house, new job, etc.
One of the best articles I’ve read on mismatched libidos is written by Dr. Trina Read. To see what she has to say on this topic, click here.
