Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 29-year-old fiancee has a very low sex drive.

Please suggest a remedy.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query.

There are many causes of a low sexual drive. Let me mention a few important causes:

Compatibility problems: Compatibility problems are one of the most important factors. A couple in a happy relationship does not usually get libido-related issues. Maintaining a good understanding is important.

Job stress: Job stress is another problem in day-to-day life that needs social support.

Low testosterone: Low testosterone among both men and women can have decreased libido. She will need to get tested for testosterone levels.

Chronic illness: Chronic illnesses like pelvic inflammatory disease, fibroids, endometriosis, etc., may cause dyspareunia and decreased libido. An ultrasonogram of the pelvis will help in identifying such problems.

Proper pre-intercourse stimulation: Proper pre-intercourse stimulation could greatly improve the sexual drive.

Low hemoglobin: A low hemoglobin and low BMI (body mass index) can decrease the sex drive. So, proper nutrition and treatment of low hemoglobin with iron supplements can be helpful in such a case.

A proper approach and foreplay may resolve the issue.

Thanks and regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
