Low sex drive?

Lots of reasons. Regardless of your sex, eg male or female, the evaluation is similar. Consider sources of stress (relationship, money, work, family, friends, etc), substance use (tobacco, alcohol & illicit stuff), health (depression, diabetes, high blood pressure/cholesterol, heart disease, etc) & medications before looking at low testosterone. But if all those are normal, then consider a trial of testosterone.
Libido gone south. One of the more common causes is medication - especially antidepressants, or antihypertensives. Diabetes and neurological problems as well as depression and anxiety can be involved too. Post-menopausal women can have low sex drive due to hormone changes. The low "t" or testosterone can cause diminished libido - saliva or blood test can confirm that.
