Thanks for reading. Il try and keep this short!
I have been diagnosed for about 6 years now, following a miscarriage. After dealing with infertility for 5 years, I found out I also had low progesterone and with treatment in early pregnancy I was able to have my son (yay!).
I have no sex drive at all. I only have sex to please my husband (very rarely) and to conceive (sad truth). When I hit puberty i had the usual urges, and when I hit 15 I had sex for the first time. I have not once enjoyed sex. It has never felt good, and slowly over time the desire has disappeared. Maybe as Iv given up hope now?
I was also recently diagnosed as having moderate depression and severe anxiety, but that's a completely different story.
I am currently taking 50mcg levothyroxine (t4). My last blood test was in November:
T4 - 20.3 pmol/L. (Range 10.30 - 24.50 pmol/L)
Tsh - 2.17 mIU/L. (Range 0.3 - 5.50 mIU/L)
I have been told I have been requesting a blood test too often and unless there are any changes then to wait 6 months at least. I do have pretty much all the symptoms of untreated hypothyroid, and have since I started levothyroxine in 2000, but I'm pretty sure they believe it's all in my head.
Would love to hear your thoughts and/or experiences with 'treated' hypothyroid and no sex drive.
I know depression and anxiety play a big part but this was happening before I was diagnosed with them. Also not taking any medication for these, as having counselling instead.
Thank you xx
