The good news is decreased libido can often be improved with some lifestyle changes like getting more exercise, reducing stress, and communicating openly with your partner.

However, if simple fixes aren't working, seeing your doctor for a full evaluation is wise. Blood tests can check hormone levels for any deficiencies that may be interfering with arousal.
