Though there are obvious reasons why you are witnessing a low sex drive, the cause of this occurrence might be the last thing you can ever think of. This is because there are a lot of things people do daily that could cause low libido.

USE OF PAIN MEDICATION: Have you heard of viagra? Sure, you have. The same way viagra improves sex drive in people is the same way, scientists have proven that the use of pain relief drugs(opioids) will over time lower your sex drive because of its effects on testosterone. The use of these drugs could also affect reproduction in people.
ALCOHOL: You must have heard that alcohol increases your performance during sex, and yes it does, for a little while. Over time, it will start to take a toll on your libido, because as relaxing as this alcohol intake might be, it will start to relax your sex drive too.
Men who take in a lot of alcohol might start having difficulties in getting their penis up, while women who do, might find it hard getting lubricated and when they do, orgasm might be a tough one.
MARIJUANA: Some will tell you having intercourse while under the influence of marijuana will make the experience heavenly. Yes, it does. Using substances comes with a side effect on your sexual life, it weakens the pituitary gland. This is the gland responsible for testosterone. Some of the side effects include low arousal, erectile dysfunction(ED), etc. Nobody wants to be left with the worry of getting and maintaining an erection.
ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Yes, depression causes low sex drive, guess what, antidepressants too, can cause low sex drive. Antidepressants can be connected to a couple of sexual dysfunctions. Eg: low libido, inability to have and keep an erection, inability to reach orgasm, etc.
These side effects are not common with all antidepressants, so, speak with your therapist before getting on any of them.
ALLERGY MEDICINE: One of the most popular anti-allergy medications is antihistamines. Though it is effective in keeping you safe, this drug might be the reason you can’t be in the mood.
Antihistamines last in the body for 24 hours. When you have a sex appointment, stay away from the 24 hours prior.
