Like many young girls, I went on the hormonal birth control pill as a teenager for contraception. I was young and naïve and ultimately, I wanted to be able to live my life without the ‘inconvenience’ of a period and I certainly didn’t want to have a baby. From the day I got my period at age 15, all I wanted was for it to go away; I simply didn’t want to have to deal with it.

No sugar, no coffee, no alcohol, no gluten, no dairy, no red meat . . . Woah! Are we trying to have a baby or torturing ourselves with Beyoncé’s Coachella diet? All jokes aside, once you start reading about what you can and can’t have in the interest of trying to conceive, it can feel like a bit much.

Low sex drive can be a really important symptom that tells us more is going on below the surface that we need to investigate. Just as pain is a symptom alerting us that something is off in our body, the lack of a libido is alarming and can point toward issues with hormonal imbalances, relationship imbalances, or negative neurological programming.

Unfortunately, the majority of us tend to experience stress that falls on the negative end of the spectrum. When stress becomes chronic, meaning that it lasts for a long period of time, it begins to have a negative impact on our health and overall well-being.
