Therapy for A Loss of Interest in Sex Wolverhampton

It is estimated that 1 in 5 couples will suffer from a loss of interest in sex, or low Libido at least once in their lifetimes.

Experts agree that one of the main reasons of this loss of interest is sex is the hectic pace that lives in modern society are lived at.

With more money worries and a higher incidence of stress & anxiety problems it seems hardly surprising that our sexual libidos are affected.

During the early stages of a relationship it can seem like we can’t get enough sex but as life goes on and our relationships mature these feelings of desire can ebb naturally.

For couples who are not aware of this fact it can be incorrectly interpreted as meaning that something is wrong in the relationship or that one partner “loves the other less than before”.

The fact is that there is a close link between the loss of interest in sex and the levels of stress and anxiety that we are “subjected to” and as we learn, through the right kind of therapy, to cope or deal more effectively with these stresses and strains, the more our interest in sex can return to normal.

What kinds of symptoms can produce this loss of interest in sex?

Men and women can both be affected by a loss of interest in sex and it is important not to associate this loss of libido with anything about your “personal attractiveness” which unfortunately is all too often what happens.

There are a number of problems that have been clearly identified as having a negative impact on our level of interest in sex and although the list below is not exhaustive, it does cover the main factors affecting libido:

  • Erectile Dysfunction – Although it may seem very obvious, when Erectile Dysfunction strikes it can sometimes make a man feel so “inadequate” that rather than trying to overcome the ED problem it is “translated” into a the belief that there is a problem in the relationship and that it is a symptom of a loss of interest in sex (rather than the thing that may be producing it!)
  • Relationship Problems – If there are some underlying troubles within the relationship that remain unspoken or simply are not being dealt with then this can have a negative impact on your interest is sex. Sometimes it can be relatively minor irritations such as a partner’s lack of personal hygiene, feelings that one partner is working harder than the other or that one has become lazy. These problems can generally be fairly easily dealt with through improved communication, perhaps by seeking help for improved self-confidence.
  • Stress – Any Stress in your life can produce this negative effect on your sex life. Stress can be present at work, from money problems, due to the loss of a loved one, a new job, an impending presentation at which you might have to speak publicly or many other factors. Stress can easily result in a loss of interest in sex.
  • Low Self-Esteem – If you have developed a low opinion of yourself and don’t feel like you are a valuable person then it can often be difficult to believe that you could be sexually attractive to another person. Under these circumstances your mind can modify this low self esteem into a lowering of sexual desire
  • Depression – Depressive disorders and depressed feeling can have a major impact on your interest in sex. When we become withdrawn from those around us our minds can move into a “survival” mode during which all sexual desire diminishes.
  • Alcohol Abuse and Drug Abuse – drug or alcohol use can become a primary focus for those people unable to contain their “addictive behaviour”. When these become the primary focus in life it can lead to less and less time thinking about sex, or to that matter, anything else. Drug and Alcohol abuse can disguise an underlying personality problem which may in itself be a cause of worry when trying to communicate or attract a new partner. Men or women may get drunk before building up the “courage” to ask somebody out on a date and alcohol, in fact, reduces Libido.

A loss of interest in sex is also one of the known side-effects of anti-depressants and some other prescription drugs.
