Possible Effects about Sleep Deprivation

Lower Sexual Desire

People with sleep deprivation, both women and men, might have less interest in sex and lower libidos. Increased tension, sleepiness, and depleted energy might be the main reason to blame. In addition, many studies have shown that sleep-deprived men might have a lower level of testosterone than normal ones. This eventually reduces their sexual desire and affects family life. Fortunately, this effect is just temporary and will disappear once the underlying cause is treated. [2]
