High cholesterol can slow pelvic blood flow, making it harder to get aroused and to have a satisfying romp in the hay. Both men and women are at risk. Cholesterol narrows blood vessels everywhere from the heart to the pelvis. In men, erection problems can even be an early warning sign of heart disease.
Happily, healthy habits to better your cholesterol levels may improve your libido, too. That means exercising, eating right, and maintaining a healthy weight.
