There are several types of libido dysfunction:
- Hypolibidemia (low sexual desire).
- Alibidemia (absence or complete loss of desire).
- Aversion (aversion to sex).
- Nymphomania (strong sexual desire).
Reasons for lack of sexual desire may be different. Lack of attraction to women is expressed in reduction of fantasies, lack of reflection on sexual life. In this case, sexual activity is less common.
Lack of sexual desire can be associated with sex hormones. Therefore, it`s important to determine their level by testing for testosterone, prolactin and others. Overweight men need to check insulin and C-peptide. If you have problems with thyroid gland, pass TSH test.

Therefore, men aged at first signs of depression need to investigate amount of testosterone.
