What is libido? Well, that is just a fancy term for sex drive and it can affect our sexual desires. Libido can be affected by a number of different factors, including psychological, sociological, and hormonal influences.
According to Dr. Michael Hirt, testosterone is what drives much of the human libido (which includes both men and women). Anything that can affect testosterone levels will invariably lead to a depressed libido.
