    Dropping Hormone Levels: Well before women hit menopause, their bodies begin to make changes that affect hormone levels. The ovaries, which are the source of 50% of our testosterone, become less active, decreasing the production of the sex hormone that is key to our libido. So, it makes sense that sex drive often drops as we age. If you've noticed a significant downshift in your sex drive, hormones are one of the most likely culprits.
