Hi. This question falls under the category of pregnancy and sex. I was Dx approx. 3 months ago. Does anyone know, believe, feel that sex drive and desire is related to celiac disease? Any advice is greatly appreciated....

I think there is def. a link, especially if you are not feeling good, you are not going to feel good about yourself and not have much of a drive. I think you will find that the longer you are gluten-free, the better you will feel about yourself and your drive will return.

Yes. I definately noticed after diagnoses when I was feeling better and drinking smart water. A definate increase in drive when some of the vitamin defiencies were resolved.

I certainly hope that the gluten-free diet will bring back my sex drive! Three days after I started the diet, I had a strong, burning urge, like I haven't felt in two years. My BF could totally tell the difference when we had sex, even though I hadn't told him beforehand that I was feeling something different. I haven't gotten another one of those, but I'm hopeful!

I did read somewhere that one of the symptoms is lower testosterone levels, which cause impotence in men and loss of libido in women.

In addition, I definitely think that there's a non-chemical side to this too. When I'm having constant D, I just don't feel very sexy.

I never had a sex drive problem. I certainly couldn't blame Celiac for my perfect sex drive in my younger years-though it wanes as you age,at least to me it does.I only have all of the other miserable celiac symptoms.

I feel that my sex drive def. was lacking and then after I was DX it did not get any better because I was feeling depressed. It has since gotten better, but when you get reactions to something and you are all bloated......the feeling goes away because yes, WGibs I totally understand that you dont feel very sexy.
