Underweight and low sex drive

I am currently in recovery of restrictive eating and exercise addiction. After being about 10-15 pounds underweight for over 1 year I feel like I have completely lost my sex drive. I understand it must have to do with the fact that I was underweight so my body wasn't producing enough hormones, but am not exactly sure. I am now gaining all the weight back slowly so I guess I am asking is that will my sex drive come back as I get closer to my healthy weight again??

Re: Underweight and low sex drive


I found with weight gain after severe restriction and with the correct medication that does not affect sexual drive has helped me greatly. I thought i was in the desert forever.

So, weight gain helps and you should speak to your doctor regarding medications that can be affecting your sex drive.

Good luck
In small proportions we just beauties see, in small measures life my perfect be!
