Due to stress, your body prioritizes the most important functions for survival, such as blood flow and heart rate. The importance and running of other non-essential functions, like sex, diminishes for the body. Chronic stress can also increase the production of the hormone cortisol, which can lower your libido. For women, this hormone can also mess up their menstrual cycle. If that was not enough, stress can also make it harder to orgasm and can prevent climaxing.
