What is libido?

Libido is a sexual drive or appetite or a desire to have sex. This is dependent on an individual's mental state, hormonal balance, stress and can vary based on any medication an individual is taking. Libido has got nothing to do with a persons gender identity or assigned sex. Libido can vary throughout the lifetime of an individual. People struggle with either low or overly high libido. Partners can have different libidos however it is best to discuss and communicate about your sexual desires in a relationship. Some medications can cause a low or a high libido and can cause some friction in the persons relationship. However, discussing what works with you and your parter/s, is the way to come to a common ground. There are treatments for both low and high libido and consulting your doctor is a good option once identified.
