Stop These Secret Sex Saboteurs

Low libido? Inability to climax? General disinterest in sex? If you're not feeling your usual sexy self, it could be one of these secret sex saboteurs.

Prescription for Frustration

Before you blame your partner for your sagging sex drive, you might want to check your medicine cabinet first. The experts estimate that more than 150 over-the-counter, prescription, and illegal drugs may impair sexual function. And these are often the kind of pills you don't think twice about swallowing - birth control, antihistamines, antibiotics, and antidepressants. Ask your doctor about your medicine's sexual side effects and look into the alternatives.

Contents Under Pressure

Too much stress outside the bedroom can mean too little action inside it. If sex is looking like just another thankless task on your to-do list, you need to take action to calm your frazzled nerves. Good health is a means to good sex, so make sure you're eating right, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep. Still stressing? Schedule a massage, arrange for a relaxing weekend away, or just hire some help to minimize your daily chores until you can recharge your lagging libido.

Hot Under the Collar

Problems in a relationship often manifest themselves in a lack of lovemaking. If you're still fuming over your partner forgetting your birthday (again!), you need to cool off before you can heat things back up in your bedroom. Holding onto your grudge will eat away at your relationship, so open the lines of communication, try to work through your troubles, vent your frustrations, then forgive, forget, and fornicate.

Growing Pains

Age causes all kinds of unwelcome changes in our bodies and decreased sexual desire is one of them. Menopause and decreased testosterone production are the main culprits, but anxiety and depression about aging can also defuse your sexual sparks. Talk to your doctor or therapist about ways you can boost your desire.

But remember, the lack of desire for sex can have many causes both medical and psychological. If you're still having trouble, see a doctor.
