Can a loss of libido be a normal phenomenon? Absolutely! If you’re someone who’s under stress and you feel pressure, it is clear that you may not feel interested in sex. You may not have that desire. That is a normal phenomenon and many women are made to feel guilty that perhaps they don’t have the desire they used to. The bottom line is, if someone is fatigued, under stress, feeling unappreciated, they’re not going to have the libido or the drive they had before. Many of these things have to be worked out.
