Why Have I Lost My Libido?

Why Have I Lost My Libido?

It’s a common complaint from both men and women: Why have I lost my libido? Why am I less excited about sex than I used to be? Why do I have trouble with my sexual performance?

There’s no easy answer to these questions about your sexual health, in part because decreased libido can have many causes, both physical and emotional.

Fortunately, individuals experiencing a decrease in sexual desire — called hypoactive sexual disorder — and problems with sexual performance don’t just have to grit their teeth and bear it. Help is available. 

At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, primary care physician Deborah D. Viglione, MD, offers her patients a range of treatments to help restore libido. Here, you can learn more about this important topic and how sexual optimization can help you.

Causes of weak libido

If you’re feeling less sexy than you used to, you could be experiencing one or more issues that dampen your desire for sex. These may include:

If you’ve noticed decreased sexual desire, you’re not alone. But the good news is that you can regain a healthy and happy sex life.

Evaluating your sex drive

If you’re suffering from a frustrating drop in libido, Dr. Viglione performs a physical examination to check on your overall health. She also asks you questions about your health history, sexual history, relationships, sexual interests, medications, and other relevant issues.

Once she determines what’s affecting your sexual health, she recommends a personalized treatment plan to remedy your situation. The treatment options Dr. Viglione recommends are designed to address the factors that contribute to your low libido. 

For example, if you have a hormone imbalance, she may prescribe bioidentical hormone therapy to restore healthy levels of estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone.

Our practice also offers GAINSWave® and FemiWave® sexual revitalization therapy for men and women. These treatments use low-intensity shock waves to address damage in your blood vessels and restore blood flow. This therapy can bring about better orgasms and greater sensation.

In addition, injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) harvested from your own blood can help boost blood circulation in your genitals, which enhances sensation.

Start enjoying sex more

These are just a few of the treatments that can help get your libido back on track. Don’t put up with a frustrating lack of libido any longer. Let Dr. Viglione create a customized treatment plan designed to make sex better for you.

We invite you to schedule a sexual health evaluation today. To make an appointment with Dr. Viglione, call our office at 850-290-4806.
