Libido drops steeply in the fall/winter

For the last few years I've noticed a steep drop in my libido around fall. This continues through the winter and then it comes roaring back in the spring. The difference is substantial and it's been impacting my performance.

I eat well and I exercise 2-3 times a week, so I don't think my health is a factor. I do drink, but it's only 1-2 beers several nights a week.

Anyone else have this problem? If so, could Viagra or Cialis help here? I'm in my early 30s so this is definitely sooner than I thought I'd need them.

You may also notice a greater desire to sleep and eat comfort foods. You may be suffering from the decrease of sun light. It happens alot, due to the shorter days and colder weather. Your also more depressed and moody during this time. Some solutions are sunlamps and tanning beds. Check with your doctor or a nutritionist to see if some vitamins and herbs may help.
Your libido is affected by your moods. Fall and winter we, as human beings, are more depressed and don't want to do things. Spring and summer are the seasons of life and you have to make the rest of the year more meaningful and exciting. Good Luck

I haven't noticed a change in my mood and I've been eating pretty healthy (although I haven't been too good about resisting cupcakes when they're brought into the office). I ordered a sunlamp (it was suggested a long time ago by a therapist), I'll see if it makes a difference.

Every man is different, so this may be your body's version of seasonal affective disorder. If so, you can either learn to adjust to it or seek either medical or mental health assistance: a doctor may prescribe an erectile aid, although at your age that may seem to be jumping the gun. A mental health professional might be able to help you discover deeper reasons for the issue and suggest strategies for overcoming it. On the physical front, it's also just a good idea to ensure you are keeping your penis in optimal physical health; try adding a top flight penis nutrient cream (health professional recommend Man1 Man Oil) to your daily regimen. Look for a cream that contains L-arginine, an enzyme that helps blood vessels to expand and increases blood flow capabilities.
