Thanks for writing in,
There are several things which can affect sexual desire and I think they need to be addressed first. The stress levels need to be reduced by yoga, exercise, XXXXXXX breathing. You should also focus on your relationship. Other things like increased foreplay and will also help.
I would also you want you to do a simple blood glucose level ( fasting) to rule out diabetes. This can sometimes contribute to erectile dysfunction.
As far medication is concerned, various drugs like sildenafil or tardalafil are available. However, you need to have your blood pressure checked and a proper history to be taken before these drugs can be prescribed. You will need to see your physician for that.
Hope that helps
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks for writing back.

I would suggest taking capsule Multivite FM or Revital once in a day as an antioxidant which may help your low libido.

Other specific medicine is sildenafil (Viagra) tablet which is available only on prescription from your physician. Due to the side effect profile of this drug, it should be used under the guidance of your doctor.

Hope I answered your query.
