Our expert says:
An important question is whether you have always had a low sex drive, or if this is a recent thing. Also important is if you are in a relationship at the moment.
If this is a long standing problem, then getting a medical check from your GP or an endocrinologist is important to rule out metabolic and hormonal conditions.If recent, then there may be some kind of stress, or recent circumstance in your life that has affected you.
There are many people for whom it is normal to have a low sex drive. After checking for medical conditions, and ruling out stress it then becomes important for you to tune your mind towards thinking sexually. Eradicate alcohol, stop smoking if you are, and start exercising. Become more body conscious, and cultivate erotic thoughts, being guided by what you know turns you on. Try to become more conscious of what may be blocking you sex drive - anger, fear etc. With time you should find that you have created pathways towards increasing your sex drive.
