2. Bipolar disorder

People who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder are known to have a high sex drive. These may include phases of depression and mania which is linked with hyper sexuality. But the good news is, once a person is treated for bipolar disorder, the sex drive of the person comes to an end itself.

3. Hormonal imbalance

Your sex drive may put into overdrive due to hormonal imbalances. When oestrogen levels fall and testosterone levels rise, it triggers hyper sexuality.

4. Persistent genital arousal disorder

Women who suffer from this condition experience a persistent feeling of sexual arousal. Having sex also doesn't help them get rid of this feeling. For this, a hormonal or behavioural therapy or topical gels are given as treatment.

5. Rabies

Rabies can also make people sex addicts. Doctors believe that the virus damages or inflames certain parts of the brain. It may also lead to death if not treated properly. Be sure to get a treatment for rabies as early as possible.

Sexual health problems are more common than you may think or wish to admit. There is nothing to be ashamed of this condition, all you need is the strength to admit it and seek medical help before the conditions get worse for you.
