You Are Dehydrated (lack of fluid)
Insufficient fluid intake could secretly kill your sex drive. When you are dehydrated, you are likely to experience fatigue and a pounding sensation in your head. That can take a toll on your sexual desire.
Moreover, when your body lacks water, there is a dearth of oxygen in your bloodstream. This translates into low oxygen in your genitals too, another factor contributing to low libido.
Add to this the fact that dehydration can lead to vaginal dryness. So you struggle with lubrication and orgasm as well.
You Watch A Lot Of Porns
There is a spate of studies that has established a link between watching pornography and erectile dysfunction.
It has also been found that this habit increases your sexual fantasies and expectations, leading to frustration during a real-life sexual encounter.
You Are Addicted To Junk Food
These foods come with chemicals known as phthalates. They impact male hormones negatively and reduce libido.
You Are Way Too Stressed
Just like many other aspects of life, stress negatively impacts your sex drive too. This is because your sex hormones, like others chemicals, go haywire when you are stressed out.
You Don’t Like Fish
Fish is known to be rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. This monounsaturated fatty acid balances testosterone, oestrogen, and progesterone levels–the hormones involved with your sex drive.
Start having fish in your meals if you’re not a vegetarian. Your heart and brain will also benefit from it too.
Deprivation of Sleep
Sleep deprivation could be a sign of sleep apnoea (a sleep disorder). Several studies have linked low libido with sleep apnoea.
