Not usually: On the contrary, depression will make you lose all desires about everything. Mania, on the other hand, will make you hyper sexual and more flirty. They can combine in some cases, making very difficult to judge only from the sexual desire point of view. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it normal that my girlfriend's sex drive has dramatically increased during pregnancy? She's constantly cheating with multiple guys
Maybe, but: That type of promiscuity during pregnancy is certainly not safe because of the potential exposure to many sexually transmitted diseases which could certainly put the fetus at risk not to mention your relationship. Whether of not pregnancy is the cause she needs some impulse control for her own well being. Read more

My sex drive has increased the past couple if weeks. I did start my period yesterday and I do get that way before but it's never that much. What's wron?
Wrong?: Something may be different, but that's not always wrong. It could even be a combination of inputs that include a positive variation from usual. If you felt 'driven' by it to behave in risky ways, I agree that you'd like to be more "in charge". And you can be. If you wish, have an exam to eval hormone level balance then consider counseling to learn sex-related self-mgmt and assertiveness skills. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My doctor has prescribed Evion 400 mg twice daily for increased sex drive. Is it safe to take 2 daily?

I am not sure if it really improves sex drive, unless you change the underlying reasons causing the lack of it. No Vitamin or medication taken in excess is safe. Twice a day of Evion is OK if you believe it works for you. Introspection is better Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is also possible that you are experiencing an idiosyncratic side effect (specific to you). Check with your prescribing doctor. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
