Recent research has shown that more than 40% of women and 30% of men experience some kind of sexual dysfunction.
The most common condition is low libido.
Lyndsey Harper, MD, FACOG, IF, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Medicine, suggests that there are many solutions people can try to boost their libido and improve overall health.
Reduce stress from work and daily life
Stress and fatigue are the most common reasons for low sex drive. Stress can come from work, family responsibilities, and social networking.
People can try to practice mindfulness, do exercise regularly and getting enough sleep.
When the head and body are relaxed, people may find it easier to get to the place mentally where they can feel arousal and desire.
Focus on pleasure, not obligation
When people treat sex as an obligation, they will lose the fun. People, especially women, need to understand sex is okay and pleasurable.
Communicate with your partner
Strong and healthy communication may help people feel confident and secure in a relationship and improve their sexual life.
On the other hand, bringing frustration, anxiety, or anger into the bedroom may lower your libido.
It is important to have an open conversation about each other’s wants and needs.
Try to make sexual life a priority
The researcher suggests that people need to make sex as big as a priority as they make their relationship.
If they are constantly running low on time, reevaluate their priorities. For example, one good strategy is “sex before dishes”.
The researcher suggests that if the four tips cannot help boost libido, then it may be necessary to speak with doctors.
There are some medications doctors can prescribe to boost libido.
It is important to see if the low libido signals something riskier, like depression, thyroid issues, and arthritis.
For people with a history of abuse, trauma or infidelity, a local psychologist, psychiatrist or marriage and family therapist may provide help.
