i have been told that zinc can increase your sex drive. don't know if it will work for you but it is surely a relatively easy treatment to try. hope things improve for you soon.
Hi ive had Chronic urticaria for about 9 months now and since then my life has been hell. It has severely lowered the quaility of my life as i am a 16 year old who is in love with sport and it is a passion which i hope to pursue as a future. I now struggle to walk to school, sit in a warm room, or next to a radiator i have quit Football, Tennis, cycling and running and many other hobbies whihc i love. I cant go to parties or have fun at the beach on hot days with friends. This couldnt have come at a worse time, i took P.E and i couldnt take part in practical which lowered my grade and now fear not being able to take part in higher. I have seen many doctors, a few homiopaths ( think thats how you say it) and a few specialists in dermatoligy and their answer is more medication which isnt working! I beg if anyone has any advice or anything please help me I just want to get my life back on track and enjoy it to the fullest. Thanks and sorry for poor spelling.
I gradually lost my sex drive and all desire ending up with being sexually in the pre-puberty position. I was diagnosed as having an underactive thyroid and given testosterone 80 mg and levothyroxine 100 mg I am now on 120 mg of testosterone plus anti depressants Venlafaxine 37.5 quick release for evenings and 75 mg slow release in the morning. while I have started to regain some sex drive a long lasting erection or sex drive is rare it has improved. I now have incontinence and while my hernias have been treated I still have gall stones that so far have not caused me pain. I was checked and cleared for prostrate cancer but the incontinence is still not clearing up or improving.
Hi, I have excess hair all over the top of my thighs and down my stomach. It's not attractive and has really lowered my confidence. What can I do? Thanks
Hi, I am a 24 year old woman and I have had no sex drive and struggle to get lubricated for over 2 years. I have had full hormonal tests which have all been normal and I have a happy relationship. I have been on the pill before and the injection but have been off it for nearly a year with no improvement in sex drive. The problems came about from when I went on the injection but never improved. It's really affecting my life but I have no idea where the problem could be!?
In September I had the contraceptive implant fitted and ever since then my sex drive has dropped to absolutely nothing. It is causing problems in my relationship as I would like nothing more than to feel aroused and want to have sex but I don't. I am 18 and my partner is 19 and we have been together almost two years. We don't know what to do, should I have the implant removed? Is it the implant causing this change in my sex drive?
i always used to have a high sex drive and frequent unwanted erections. However this year everything has completely flipped, my sex drive is gone and I now struggle to get an erection most of the time - My body isn't interested even on the odd ocasion that I am. Oddly, morning erections are still strong. Im not sure what to do about this or who to speak to, as a 24 year old man I'm a little nervous talking to my friends. Any advice or help in the right direction would be great!
Hi, I am a 26 year old, I have been married to my husband for 4 years but been together for 9 years. We have 2 children aged 6 and 3 but for the past 5 years I have suffered with re-ocurring depression. With this my sex drive is none existant. I have took anti-depressants about 4 times ranging from 3 months to 2 years. Even thought now I am no longer on them my sex drive has not improved. Please help as my husband keeps thinking that I am neglecting him and do not care his feelings but I just cant get my head around even having sex never mind enjoying it :-(
Hi I'm 26 and been with my boyfreid for over 3yrs now. I have totally lost my desire for sex and it has been at least a year. Sometimes if there's a lot of oral towards me I can push myself into feeling something but it never leads to intercourse because it always painful. However I just have no desire and dread the day my boyfriend can't be patient anymore. It's really putting pressure on our relationship. I've spoken to the doctor and nurse several times but they always turn me away and say it's a relationship problem or we are not doing enough foreplay which is why they think the sex is painful. I used to have such a high sex drive and now there's nothing there. Please please help me. I can't stand it anymore. I'm 26! Low sex drive shouldn't be an issue! :(
Your doctor and nurse are ignorant. Look at the programme of 26th June ( a young woman had suffered painful sex for a year, was told it was psychological, of course it wasn't). I was told the same thing repeatedly all my life and I only found a cure a few years ago. I'm appalled that after all these years medics are still unaware of a vaginal condition that can be treated with hormonal cream, usually only given to menopausal women. Change your doctor, ask to see a specialist. Not only will the cream deal with the pain, as it changes your hormones it will re-activate your desire. It's worked for me - I'm 71!!!!
