While you may not realize it, everyday life stresses can greatly impact your libido. Below are just a few of the ways in which they may do so:
- Your body’s natural reaction to stress– When you feel stressed, your body will go into what is known as a “fight or flight response,” releasing cortisol and adrenaline into your blood. If this happens to you on a regular basis, you can develop the condition of chronic stress, which interferes with the hormones in your body particular to your sexual response.
- Your busy lifestyle– In the world today, everyone finds themselves juggling multiple roles and responsibilities. Trying to balance work and parenting with chores leaves very little time for recreational activities. As a result, your busily working mind and very tired body will have a difficult time getting in the mood for sex.
- Relationship stress– This is perhaps the most vicious cycle of all. Relationship conflict can cause stress, which leads to additional circumstances causing more stress, leaving no room for your body to charge up its libido. Ironically, low libido can, in and of itself, be a major cause of relationship stress, and arguing about it can make a couple want to have sex even less.
Unfortunately, infertility is a major cause of stress in relationships. Working through such issues often involves feelings of grief, loss of control, loss of self-esteem, financial strain, and sexual pressure. But what if you were able to reach a place where you felt fully in control of your fertility awareness? With the stress of the unknown behind you, you would be empowered and feel free to be an open and loving sexual partner.
