Lack of sex drive

I have been taking Tamoxifen for 12 months now and was hoping that by now my sex drive would have come back. It seems to have disappeared! I know that this is a common side effect, however I wondered if anyone has been recommended anything that can help with this…

 Hi Jill73


It’s Emily here from Breast Cancer Care.


While you’re waiting for responses on here, I wanted to let you know that we have several telephone volunteers who have described having a loss of sex drive from taking Tamoxifen. If you’d like to be put in touch with someone, feel free to call us on 0345 077 1893.


Alternatively you could email one of our email volunteers, like Karen, who may be able to help:

Completely understand. Been on Tamoxifen for 18 months or so and have absolutely no sex drive. Feels like chemo has fried all sensitive bits! Wish I could give some helpful tips … xx
