Decrease in libido

Resolved Question:

Hi doctor, I am a 27 years old male, and also very healthy. But I have a problem of loss of libido from the past 7 months. I could not explain the otherserious changes, and otherwise I could feel totally fine myself. Can you please tell me with what the matter is? And how can I solve this problem? Recently I broke up with my girlfriend and went from there to a new city to start a law school. In the first year of my law school I feel stress because of dropping sex, but it not affect in my life and it was a great time for me. I am a hard worker and I do not felt more anxious or stress than common, usually I am a cool relaxed guy. Other than lack of libido, all things were totally normal. Recently I have been work out for adding some muscles and I got a good shape now. There is no change in my happiness and mood rather than before and no changes are noticeable different. And I could not have any other complicated health issues to explain. I do not have any medications or drugs at any cause. I am now having long desirefor meeting woman and like going for a dateetc. The problem is that now I am single than ever, but my desire has changed into a nonobjective, passionless type. When I am with a female I do not have a strong desire to commence physical actin sex. In a week my manual stimulation frequency has gone from four to six times, almost once or twice in a week, and often I felt it is like a task for me. During this time period I attempt four times but all of my efforts ended up embarrassingly, like I have neither been unable to attain and maintain an erection when I want it or I have been unable to orgasm. Each time I take alcohol support before I came, which is a confusing and supportive factor certainly. The woman’s that I met were very beautiful and I did not know them very closer, or I do not have any tight relation with them. When I attached and removed in each encounter I felt that there is a missing of response and visceral desire when I am with a young beautiful girl. This makes me surprised that if my sex drive become less physical in nature and more psychological, and before I did not have this same problem with my last girlfriend. First of all the psychological problems are aside and now I like to overcome from this problem and next when I have a new girlfriend I did not want any problem in between us. Can I able to perform as usual? Now I already decided that before me going for a date I will not masturbate for a few days, and do not drink so much of alcohol. Can you give me some more suggestion for this issue? And if there is any other detection? Please help me to overcome from this situation? I am waiting for your prompt reply, Thank you.

Thank you for your question, There is many reasons for low libido. In young guys, it is real that stress can make remarkable lower sex appeal. Generally stress is a part of your daily life but you have a good time in life now and you are trying to overcome from the stress. I do advise you to follow your recent plans and avoid those things that cause in lowering your libido such as alcohol. To improve your libido you can follow regular exercise in your daily life. You can watch your change in months, but if you did not have any change in your condition for several months, you have to consult with a doctor for complete checkup. Then you may beable to know whether it is because of any hormonal disturbances like low testosterone or thyroid dysfunction and so can be cured. I think it can help you from your condition. Don’t be worried, you will be fine. God bless you, thank you.
