    Is it normal to completely lose your sex drive at 18?
    An_250334 posted:
    Hello, I'm a 24 year old woman. Back when I was 18, I lost my sex drive completely. It was gradual, it's like my body slowly stopped responding to sexual stimuli. In about 6 months, it was dead. Back at the time, I wasn't on birth control or any other type of medication yet. I was head over heels for my boyfriend of the time and very attracted to him, but my body just didn't respond. I *wanted* to have sex, but my body just refused to get aroused!

    To this day it's the same. I feel attracted to guys, and want sex, but when I try fantasizing, watching porn or actually kissing or doing other things with them, no matterhow much I want it or have been expecting it, my body doesn't cooperate.

    Now I'm on birth control and metformin for insulin resistance, but like I said, when this began I wasn't on either. I know it's been a long time, but I've felt embarrassed to mention this to my doctor. When I go for my check up, how should I approach this subject? What tests do you think he should order?

    (By the way, last time I got my thyroid checked it was around 4.2, this is within the traditional normal range, but I've read that over 3 is considered underactive? Could this be a factor? I also have hair loss, which I assume is genetic, and low energy... could it be just coincidence?)
