Hello. I am a healthy 25-year-old female with regular cycles. For the past year I have been experiencing very low sex drive. I smoke cigarettes and work shift work. Could this be affecting my sex drive? What could I be doing differently?
The first thing I would suggest is to quit smoking. I know it’s easier said than done, but the nicotine in cigarettes play havoc with your hormones, especially testosterone, which causes your natural sex drive to plummet. This can cause further complications down the road with infertility and cancer. Aside from that, other libido boosting tips would be to insure you’re getting enough sleep, try out natural supplements like maca, and review your diet to include more energy-boosting proteins and nutrient-dense greens.
