Warning Signs of Depression

Lack of Interest and Loss of Libido

People who are depressed may lose interest in hobbies and normal activities they they usually would enjoy, including sex. However, a loss of libido (sex drive) or inability to have sex can be attributed to a number of other factors, such as stress, anxiety, tiredness, erectile dysfunction, heart disease, diabetes or obesity. Medications to treat depression, high blood pressure and other conditions also may hinder one’s sex drive.
