Libido also is known as sex drive is a person's overall sexual drive or desire to have sexual activity. When men or women have low libido, this means they have low sexual activity desire. The reason for low libido in men is usually due to low testosterone. According to research, 4 out of 10 men over age 45 have low testosterone.

Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), has existed for many centuries and is considered a safe procedure when provided by a licensed practitioner. The skin is penetrated by sterile needles to stimulate specific points related to three principal concepts of TCM: harmony between yin and yang balances, Qi (vital energy flowing through the body) and blood, and the five elements (fire, earth, wood, metal, and water).

The causes of low libido can range from hormonal change, relationship conflicts, breastfeeding, post-childbirth, drug reactions, weight gain or stress and etc (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4386219/).
