Valentine’s day is touted as one of the sexiest days of the year, by Hallmark, Victoria’s Secret, and florists. We may love or hate the holiday, but we probably all want to feel sexier more often and feel a deeper and more meaningful connection with our partners.
Health is sexy, eating right, sleeping enough, and exercise are good for the heart, muscles, and skin, and can make you bright eyed, bushy tailed, and more attractive to others. Unfortunately, you may be doing those things right, and still not feel very sexy, attractive, or that interested in having sex.
Human hormones are a very complicated interwoven web of interactions. Many women who are peri-menopausal come to see me and complain of having no libido, we start them on their hormone replacement and supplement programs and they feel much better very quickly. Others are not so lucky, and may be younger, not near menopause, and so fatigued, stressed and out of balance that they aren’t interested in sex. Emotional conflicts with your partner may explain lack of libido, but often hormonal imbalances can be found at the root of a lack of interest in intimacy.
