Decreased sex drive

Can an STD cause a decreased sex drive?

For the past few weeks, I've noticed I no longer get morning erections when I wake up and in general my libido seems lower. I also masterbate a lot less whereas before I often did it several times day. i'm only 18 years old as well so im pretty sure this isn't an ageing thing.


At the moment I'm waiting for the 3 month mark to get tested for HIV and although I am worried i've tried very hard not to think about it by going out and enjoying my life until the test....so im skeptical whether this decreased libido is due to anxiety?


Can chlamydia or other STDs cause this lowered sex drive?

No, STD's do not lower sex drive but anxiety most certainly does. Relax.
