Okay....

I know that this topic is kind of personal, but so is talking about poop and all of our other associated health problems. One of the things that I have noticed since going gluten-free is that I now have a sex drive. I swear that I have had very little interest in sex until I went gluten-free and am wondering if anyone else has had this experience. Is it just me???? I can't think of anything else that could account for this recent pleasant change. I guess it is possible that there is another explanation, but I really don't think so. I'm sooooooooo happy!!!

Diagnosed by my doctor on the basis of symptoms only (May 2005). My symptoms include:

-amenorhea (all my life)
-high prolactin levels
-major bloating ("Are you pregnant?")
-swollen ankles
-possible DH: had the rash on my elbows and scalp (gone now)
-joint pain
-childhood arthritis
-all dairy allergy
-dry skin
-fat in stool sample (no connection was made at the time...I was being tested for something else...When the doctor told me of the fat I replied by saying: "I eat alot of olive oil". DUH!!!!)
-mother is allergic to wheat
-ravenous appetite: I eat for 5 people
-light coloured stool
-pass stool 7 times a day sometimes
-hemorrhoids
-get the hiccups alot (not sure if this is related)
-some reflux

I'm sure there are more that I don't recall at the moment. SIGH.

I have had that problem, and with all my recent glutenings and apparent corn allergy, I am still suffering. Maybe there is hope out there for me if things have changed for you.......

Yup...I had zero sex drive for 2 years. I mean NO sex drive at all. It was the furthest thing from my mind but I was also extremely tired, depressed and in alot of pain. Who would be thinking of sex under those cicumstances? Well...my relationship didn't survive after 6 months like that. :(
Now that I'm gluten-free my sex drive is back but I'm single now so I'm not jumping up and down for joy about it. <_<

glix you shouldn't be reading this! I hope your not wither celiac3270!
Anyway Skarlet I think your right. Our bodies are so sick, our minds are wiped out and the last thing we have the energy for is sex.
I have to say, mine is back! Rachel, if he couldn't stay with you through that, he really was not worth your time or effort or sex drive!
:D

nogluten: How long have you had celiac disease? It may be that your body is just now healing. Or maybe your drive was alright to begin with. :D
