Low Sex Drive

The write-up on my female libido article covers stress, substance abuse and marital discord as the possible causes of low sex drive. Here are more causes of low libido in women and ways to overcome them.

Lack of Sleep

Every person needs to have at least seven to eight hours of sleep at night. Without enough sleep we feel irritable and our energy level will be very low, so sex will be the last thing on our mind at the end of the day.

Ensure that you have enough sleep every night and supplement with Manjakani Tonic Pills to improve your vitality.

Environmental factors such as noise and light could be a cause of sleeplessness. Ensure your room is quiet and all lights dimmed to have a good nights sleep.

Some people might have trouble sleeping after drinking coffee as caffeine is known to cause insomnia. If this is the case, refrain from drinking coffee after 5 o' clock in evening.


Kids are wonderful and bring so much joy to the family, but they can also be a cause of low sex drive as sometimes they get in the way of a couple's intimacy. Get a babysitter or family friend to look after them, while the two of you have a night out.

The children’s nap time can be a romantic time for you too. Or make use of the office lunch hour to have a quickie at home while the kids are at school!

Breastfeeding lowers the level of vaginal estrogen causing vaginal dryness which makes penetration painful. Nursing also causes the production of prolactin which lowers testosterone, resulting in low libido.

Fortunately these conditions are temporary and its effects on your libido only last for as long as you are breastfeeding. Even though you do not have the desire for sex, you can still have a loving relationship with your partner by cuddling or perhaps pleasuring him orally.

Postpartum Depression

Women with postpartum depression will also suffer from, among other things, a lack of desire for sex.

According to Canadian Mental Health Association, postpartum depression is not merely feeling the “blues”, but a very serious condition that warrants professional help.

For that matter, even depression that is not related to pregnancy could kill your sex drive. If you suffer from feelings of sadness, emptiness, worthlessness, suicidal tendencies or fatigue that interfere with everyday life, you should get professional help.

Antidepressants can sometimes interfere with sexual desire, so it is best to talk to your doctor about it.

Oral Contraceptives

It is ironic that birth control pills not only stop you from getting pregnant but it stops you from desiring sex too. Oral contraceptives stops your ovaries from producing hormones, which affects your libido too.

If you feel that oral contraceptives are the cause of your low sex drive, why not have a discussion with your obstetrician and consider an alternative method of birth control.

Poor Body Image & Low Sex Drive

It is hard to feel sexy when you have poor body image. Some women think that they are too fat, others think they are not curvy enough, some want bigger breasts or longer legs.

Some women become so obsessed with these physical characteristics that it becomes a contributing factor to their low sex drive. They feel ashamed to bare their bodies. Yet it is not our looks or bodies that is the issue, but our perception of them.

This problem has to be resolved within you. Nobody can make you feel sexy until you feel good about yourself.

Try asking your partner what he feels desirable about you. You will be surprised to learn that he has no issues with the part of you that you so dislike!

If you feel that you need to lose weight, do it healthily. Do not crash diet. Follow a proper exercise routine – working out will give you an energy boost, tones your body and increases your libido.

If the above are still not the causes of your low sex drive, then libido menopause and medical conditions might be the issue.
