At 91, should I have low libido ? It was OK up to a year ago….

    Sexual desire generally tracks physical and mental health. You say your libido was OK until a year ago. Has anything happened during the past year to change your physical or mental health? Illness? Deaths of loved ones? Depression? Also, libido loss can be a side effect of many medications. Have you started any new drugs during the past year? I urge you to take a careful inventory of your recent life to see if you can identify any significant changes that might impact your desire—and then work to ameliorate any you think might play a role in your libido loss.

    At age 91, professionals might dismiss your libido loss saying it’s simply the result of being among the oldest elders. If you’ve like to connect with a professional likely to take you more seriously, I suggest you visit Sex Health Matters, the consumer site published by the North American Society of Sexual Medicine, doctors who specialize in sexual issues. You might also consider talking with a sex therapist. To find one near you, visit the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, or the American Board of Sexology.

    I hope you can determine what’s caused your issue—and overcome it.
