According to Miriam-Webster, the definition of asexual is:

3a not involving, involved with, or relating to sex devoid of sexuality  >an asexual relationship
not having sexual feelings toward others not experiencing sexual desire or attraction

  • In general, an asexual person does not feel or otherwise experience any sexual attraction, according to The Asexual Visibility & Education Network (AVEN). Basically, it is an inborn absence of sexual desire.—Lindsay E. Mack


4not having or showing a particular sexual identity neither male nor female
 
Definitions 1 and 2 relate to plants and microscopic organisms and are not relevant in this context.

Well, I'm pretty sure that high stress does lower sex drive
High stress does inhibit sex drive; evolutionarily if you were being chase by a tiger (or insert other threats early humanity faced) you didn't need to be thinking about sex, just getting away. Stress is the same thing just more chronic.
