Re: anyone with no sex drive?

Snap, what can i say
Been on Tamoxifen for 3 years, no sex drive whatsoever!
Feel for my partner as in the scheme of things still in the early stages of our relationship really(4 years together) and we
had a healthy sex life before Bc
They do have a lot to put up with, mood swings etc
God Bless them lol

Re: anyone with no sex drive?

I'm on Tamoxifen and have only been on it for a few weeks, but already my active sex life has disappeared. Even during chemo etc (one blue nipple, scars, and a cable hanging out of my chest) I felt more sexy than I do now!

Married 18 years, 42 yrs old and pretty cheesed off! I've noticed my husband and I have started "nipping" at each other - a sure sign he needs "release" - but I can't be bothered.

Re: anyone with no sex drive?

I'm with you guys on this too, and it's horrid

I've been married just three years, and love my husband very much, but chemo, surgery, rads & hormones have killed the urge and made everything very uncomfortable.

I talked to my nurse, who suggested KY, but that's almost no better

I pity my poor husband ...

Re: anyone with no sex drive?

Hi all - forgive me butting in (don't exactly qualify as a younger woman as I'm 50+!), but all these 'hormone therapies' (there's a euphemism and no mistake) interfere with the oestrogen in the body, with the effect of killing off sex drive.

I think some doctors will prescribe topical oestrogen cream and others won't let you near the stuff.

Quite a few people on here use Sylk (apparently available on prescription now) for the physical problems, but that doesn't solve the libido issue, of course.

This disease is the pits, isn't it?....

Re: anyone with no sex drive?

Hi I am on arimidex and have very litle sex drive. i have had chemo and rads this year. I also get very dry. I do have a partner and we both get fed up with it. I have managed to have sex a couple of times but very painful. I am 39 38) at dx. Replens helps the the dryness but hard to use if you feel sore to stsrt with.
