Hello, I'm a 24 year old female who over the last 1.5 years have notice a dramatic drop in my sexual desire. I fear its starting to effect my long-term relationship. a little back history, when I was 15 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and Polycystic ovarian disease I was told my testosterone and progesterone levels were high and my estrogen was low. I was placed on metformin and b/c. over the last 7 years I have made life style changes, I'm currently 70lbs lighter exercise regularly My type two diabetes has been controlled by diet and exercise for the last 6 years (A1c 5.0). Still on the pill, uncertain of my hormonal status. When I was a heavier my sex-drive was off the charts, I couldn't get enough, but now that i'm healthier, thinner, and happier overall I seem to have a non existent sex-drive. I exercise regularly, I eat mostly healthy (occasional junk) my job is very physically and mentally demanding. My boyfriend and I are also working conflicting hours, hes in the early morning to afternoon and im early afternoon to evenings, so we don't really see each other much during the week.

Please help me figure out this problem, I want to get my groove back

Hi

Not really sure this will help, but??? I suggest you ask your P.C.P. to run a series of tests on your hormone levels. I've heard that some B.C. pills can bind to certain hormones in women, and it decreases their sex drive.

Ask your doctor for those tests, it never hurts to ask, right? At least it may give you some peace of mind?

Best of luck to you!!!
