Six months back, she delivered a healthy baby. But, problems began to arise post her delivery. She stopped enjoying in bed. In the past six months, she never felt like making sexual contact with her husband. She thought that it might be due to physical and mental stress as her sleep cycle got disturbed after having a baby. She would always stay busy in looking after the baby and could not take proper rest. She thought that things would get normal with time. But, when nothing got normal, she decided to see a doctor.
She was so young and would not want to disappoint her husband. Though her husband was very co-operative and understanding, she knew that her disinterest in sexual life would someday create big issues in her married life. She was happily married and wanted to lead a normal life with her husband. She could not understand how can this happen at such an early age. She had her entire life in front of her and she dreaded to lead her life the way she is leading now. She was worried that if the problem persists, her husband would leave her.
She narrated the issue to us and it took us no time to figure out that her loss of libido is due to the hormonal imbalance that arises due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. But, to confirm our diagnosis we asked them both to undergo some basic tests including the blood test and pelvic exam.

She had 2 children and her husband was very supportive and loving. While there were no quarrels or strike between her and her husband because of this condition, the couple’s married life and family happiness were suffering. She reached to her gynecologist regarding the condition and the doctor guided her to us and our clinic.
We found that lack of sexual drive, fatigue, and other associated problems was causing depression in the patient. The patient reported that she did not have a libido or a desire for sex at any time of the day whether it was the daytime or night. She also reported that apart from the lack of sexual desire, she also felt exhausted most of the times and was also not interested any other kind of life activities, which she used to be before entering into menopause.

He was a successful manager in a leading IT and Tech firm. When he reached the age of 30, his parents decided that it is the right age for him to get married. But when the parents expressed their desire to their son, something unexpected came to the fore. He said that he did not have any sexual fantasies or desire, and told to his parents that he did not have any kind of sexual craving for the past 1 year or so. The parents were alarmed by this revelation and suspected that their son was suffering from some kind of physical or mental disease. The family physician of the concerned family guided them to our clinic.
The patient was accompanied by his parents when he first visited us. While he was shy and hesitant at the start, we started the discussion by asking him questions about his personal as well as professional life.

We conducted a proper medical physical examination of the patient and found his genitalia to be normal. To know the medical condition of the patient better we asked him to undergo certain clinical tests.
