It could be possible that a person lose their sex drive after they quit drinking alcohol?

It could be possible that a person lose their sex drive after they quit drinking alcohol?

Possible, but...: Usually it is the other way around. Alcohol can kill your interest in sex (or at least your performance), & often stopping drinking --> regaining interest in lots of things including sex. Perhaps the emotions that are coming up, if numbed by alcohol, are now interfering with your sex drive. If you are in a program, ask about this. If not, seek a therapist who specializes in early recovery.

What to do if no sex drive in 24 yr old female. help!?

No sex drive/libido: Whether 24yo as you ask or 46yo as you're listed, no sex drive is a common concern in women (as it is in men). Sex hormones can play a role but they're further down the road than many would believe. Instead, look for stress in various forms whether (graduate) school, work, finances, religion, culture, family etc. Positive affirming relationship is helpful. Depression isn't. Review meds w/your doc.

Sex Drive / Interest: I understand your concern for decreased sex drive and interest. Sex Drive and interest depends upon hormones and stressors affecting the life from childhood and teenage years. Unstable home environment, physical and sexual abuse, incest, unstable relationship with boyfriends, multiple relationships, dishonesty, lack of commitment and insecurity can effect sex drive and interest.

Could be due to: age, your partner or just normal aging process. Getting older and maturing might be calming you down. Its very hard to say. People's idea of low and high vary too. What is high for you sex every night? and low is now sex once a week, which might be perfectly normal. Try not to panic and accept yourself for who you are and find a partner who does too. Good luck.
