Does sex drive differ for men and women?
Has your sex drive taken a nosedive? Menstruation, menopause and stress are just some of the lifestyle factors that can impact sexual desire for women. Sex drive or libido involves our interest in sexual thoughts or activity. We all have a natural level of libido that is influenced by our biology and personality, which fluctuates throughout our lives for good, bad or neutral reasons. Libido is also not determined by how often a person has sex.
