There are multiple reasons that can lead to low libido. Whatever they may be, the result of it is never flattering. You don’t just have to go through intimacy issues, but your reproductive health can also be on the line. All of this can have a major impact on your mental stature.

At times, it becomes difficult to understand why it’s happening and this might create a little hysteria. That’s why the thing you need to understand is that low sex drive is common and treatable. Stress, reproductive disorder, and sexual dysfunction are some of the prominent reasons that effect you sex life. To get the right kind of expertise, you need to contact the right kind of professional.

Here are the three doctors you must visit to figure out why your sex drive is coming to a halt:

1. Gynaecologist
The first professional that comes to your mind for all ‘women problems’ is a gynae. At times, a low sex drive is because of excessive pain in and around your vaginal area. This can be due to bacterial or fungal vaginal infections like chlamydia, gonorrhoea, or bacterial vaginosis.

Severe vaginal pain, discharge, itching, and odour are experienced which contribute to discomfort during sex. This discomfort makes you avoid it.

In such a case, a gynaecologist can be your saviour. With guidance and medical advice, you will be able to get rid of the infection and get your sex life back on track.

2. Sexologist
If you or your partner have sexual problems like erectile dysfunction and sexual arousal disorder, then a sexologist is the right person to see. This professional will prescribe proper sexual therapy that will help you deal with the problem of low sex drive.

Park the embarrassment aside and make a timely visit to a professional to ensure this doesn’t affect your mental health.

3. Psychologist
The main culprit for low sex drive is the lifestyle that we are leading. Home, office, deadlines, ambition, and responsibilities are all co-existing factors that contribute to stress. We are tied up in all this to an extent that we hardly get time to take care of our mental well-being. This leads to stress, anxiety, and depression. All three of these lead to low sex drive.

Stress makes you physically and mentally so exhausted that you don’t even feel like doing ‘it’. Do you know that stress can lead to a sexual disorder called hypoactive sexual desire disorder in which you don’t have the urge to indulge in sexual activity? Plus, it also impacts the quality and mobility of sperm . This could contribute to problems related to conceiving.

To avoid this you, along with your partner, must visit a psychologist because your sexual well-being matters.

So, ladies, don’t take your sex life for granted. Instead, take expert opinion and make sure your sex life stays smooth.
