If you have noticed your desire for sex has waned in recent weeks or months, there are many different reasons that this can be the case. Stress at work, not enough spare time and even the weather can all have a negative impact on how often you and your significant other are intimate. But, according to a new study from the University of Rochester School of Medicine, there is another culprit harming your libido that you might not even be aware of — plastic.
The research was presented at the annual American Society for Reproductive Medicine's conference, held toward the end of 2014 in Honolulu, Hawaii. What the researchers from the university found was that there are certain chemicals in everyday plastics, known as phthalates, that are seeping into our bodies on a regular basis and messing with our hormones. The results of this means that people often experience a decreased desire for any kind of sexual activity.
These plastics are found in a number of places, from the packing of the frozen foods we eat to the shower curtain in our bathrooms. While you will never be able to get plastic out of your life completely, there are certain precautionary measures that you can take. The study suggests cutting back on processed foods, to not be exposed to the packaging, as well as replacing your existing shower curtain with either a different curtain or a glass door. This will help limit your exposure to these potentially harmful chemicals.
