Unhappy My sex drive has disappeared. (Male, 18)

As the title says, I have virtually no sex drive. I never, ever get horny any more. I can get decently hard watching porn, but only with constant stimulation - if I stop touching myself for 5 seconds, I'm soft again. I used to be feverishly horny every day since puberty, up until 3 months ago, which is when my libido started to gradually disappear completely.

I don't smoke, drink or do any other drugs. I eat healthy and I'm in good shape. I play music and hang out with friends a whole lot. Nothing in my life has really changed over the past year.

The condition is driving me crazy - I loved my sex drive, as it made me feel alive in a way that I currently don't. I used to have morning wood every day, and random, often rock-hard erections throughout. Masturbating used to feel like heaven. When I touch myself now, I feel nothing.

Please help. I am clueless as to what might be causing this.

Re: My sex drive has disappeared. (Male, 18)

Hey man. I'm in the same boat as you. I'm 27 myself and started losing my sex drive about a year ago and can't for the life of me figure out the cause. After doing some research one possibility is low testosterone. It appears there are tests to gauge how much testosterone your body produces. A lot of the symptoms of low-t seem to match my condition.

How do you feel? Do you have less overall energy? Is your mind more clouded than usual? Do you feel more stressed or just drained? Do you get enough sleep?

Re: My sex drive has disappeared. (Male, 18)

I've been considering the possibility of "Low-T" being the culprit as well, although admittedly I've been disregarding it as infeasible diagnosis for my age group (not saying you're old or anything - I've always considered mid-20's to be pretty much the prime of adult life, second only to early 50's).

More to the point: I've been feeling drained and cloudy since my adolescence, so I can't really determine if that's a valid symptom. If this has increased in the last year, it hasn't really been noticeable, at least not when compared to the sharp decline in my libido.

In conclusion, I will take your reply into account and see a doctor about this issue. You are kind and reasonable and I thank you.
