How is low libido diagnosed?

A key to diagnosing low libido is determining how you and your partner feel about sexual desires. Some couples are not bothered by a reduced sex drive, while others are not happy if they believe they are not having a healthy sexual relationship. Diagnosis is therefore relative; if it is not causing any problems to you or to your relationship, it may not be anything to worry about. To help diagnose low libido, your doctor may give you a series of blood tests to rule out various physical causes of loss of libido including deficiency in certain hormones. your doctor may also explore relationship issues and depression.
