Not Meaning To Be To Straight Forward, But......

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Along with all the crazy symptoms of celiac disease, does anyone know or maybe experience a low ummmm....how do I say this......sex drive :ph34r: sorry I do not want to get to personable, but I know that celiac disease can be linked to infertility and other female problems so I thought there could possibly be a connection there? Speaking to females here; did anyone notice an improvement in that area of their life once they started a gluten free diet?

Thanks to anyone who responds...

Absolutely! I find it very hard to be sexy and wanted when I feel like crap and have the bloating and digestive problems. I also have more energy and that is a big boost!

Now If I could just find more time... for sex... :P

With me it really depends on the how much gluten that I have ingested, before I figured that there was a problem yes I would say it affected me or us quite a bit. But tonight before I went to work NOT A PROBLEM ;):rolleyes:<_<

When I don't get to see my husband when I am working nights like if I have to work 3 night in a row we try to fix our laundry more :lol::lol: can't get enough

Ok TMI ya'll didn't need to know that but you asked

Ok I'll quit writing about it now, HUM!!

I definitely, definitely noticed a change. For a few months prior to trying gluten free, things were kind of simmering down and not much was happening. Worse was that I couldn't even summon enough desire to initiate or do much of anything in that respect. My boyfriend and I have been together for quite a while and I wondered if it was just things "settling down" in that department. I kind of wondered if something was wrong, because I've always had well... an appetite for sex ;) After a couple weeks of gluten free, it completely reversed. My sex drive was back! Yay!!

Course it's not anymore now that I'm back on gluten for all the testing :(

Thanks for the info....I was a little bit worried because I don't have an appetite for sex at all really....I mean the physical feeling of wanting too....when I do I think it is more of a concern for my marriage, wanting to keep him satisfied. But I remember there was a time when I did want to and it has been a while since I have felt that :( ...Its not my Husband, we have only been married for a year and been together for three years and he his just as sexy as ever :P . Hummm, after my blood test I can't wait to go gluten free and hopefully things turn around....but it is good to know I am not alone and there is hope. Thanks

I know exactly what you mean. My boyfriend and I had even started arguing about our dismal sex life before I tried going gluten free. This was wrong, that was wrong, and it all boiled down to my not accepting any of his, well, advances. I felt like there was something wrong with ME and I couldn't understand why I didn't want sex. I was really worried, too. I was actually very surprised when going gluten-free seemed to help, because I never imagined that could be the reason. I suppose when one is exhausted and sick from celiac, sex just takes the back burner for a while. I suppose it's true of any major period of illness. It might take some time (and support from your husband) to get back into the swing of things.
