Response from Men's Sexual Health:
After going through a difficult time like the one you have described, it is no wonder why you have a decreased libido. Mood and self esteem can have a big impact on a person's sex drive. It is common for people who are suffering depression to also have a lack of interest in sex (not that the implication is that you are depressed, but having gone through what you describe, that may be part of the issue). We cannot advise any kind of herbal supplements, as there are no proven successes. Viagra will work to give an erection, but will not increase your desire or interest in sex and would not be recommended as a real solution. Excercise can be a powerful tool, as it increases the libido for a number of reasons: 1) It gets the the heart beating and blood flowing to all parts of your body, including your sexual organs.
2) Your body should experience hormonal changes through exercise, including the production of 'feel good' endorphins, that can help increase the libido.
3) Excercise can increase self confidence, again, enhancing your sex drive.
Try to get out in this great weather we've been having, get some exercise and see if it helps you at all. If you'd like to speak to someone, please give us a ring: 01793 250951.
