Sex Drive

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!!!

:)

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

    • Hope it proves of use  The Umberto Volta interview is particularly interesting and the case study from England also...
    • Following a gallbladder surgery, I could not get my digestive system back to normal.  After several months of constant diarrhea, I went to see the gastro dr. and told her my problems. I also mentioned that I had a sister, brother and nephew with Celiacs.  She said, "I'm almost sure that's the problem".  I, like you, did not want to go back to eating gluten so I did the gene test but it was not positive.  I learned it is not always an exact test.  It came back with Crohns which so far I have no symptoms.  The Endoscopy  indicated Hpylori, CDiff, and one other bacteria.  After I took all the meds to clear my body of these bacterias, I was still having  some symptons of diarrhea and found that I thought I was clear of all gluten but I had a long way to go. Throwing away a wooden cutting board my dad had given me, lipstick, lipgloss, makeup, handcream, plastics in the kitchen, pans that had a scratch, any item in the pantry that had any of the items with starch that may have gluten and the list goes on and on.  I'm still reading labels but I definately can tell a difference as I have eliminated more items that I had no idea were harmful.  This website has been a life-saver for me.  Thank You so much for your wealth of information.   Linda Fortson    
    • Just wanted to pipe in that my hair started going gray at 19. Started coloring it immediately and decades later, still doing it. I had the guts to go completely without coloring in my late 40's. i was fully gray by then, I used a wig during the hair regrowth period. Then one day I started again. And I'm a bit hypo myself but I have no idea if that had anything to do with it. My mom didn't start going gray till she was 50 but my dad started when he got polio at age 20. He was fully gray in his 40's. there's this one beautiful black woman on a tv show in the morning I watch sometimes with the disabled woman I assist, who has partially gray hair, and it is gorgeous on her. It's a cooking show that has several chefs on it but I have no clue as to what anyone's name is cause the sound is always low and we are doing other stuff!
    • Thank you! That was the thread I already found and am reading my way through.
