Did you know? Low self-esteem, feelings of hopelessness, and physical fatigue can lower your libido (sex drive). Depression can also lead to Anorgasmia (or trouble having an orgasm), and Erectile dysfunction (or problems getting an erection).

Antidepressants, or depression medicines, are highly effective in easing depression. But many of these drugs come with sexual side effects.

Fatigue and stress contribute significantly to low libido and sexual problems. Treating an underlying sleep problem, adjusting work hours, and engaging assistance with childcare and household responsibilities often improve sexual function in married couples. Reducing stress through exercise and other relaxation techniques may result in improved sexual interest and satisfaction.
