Does Androanagen Cause Low Sex Drive
Lowers hormones: High levels of prolactin suppresses the hormones combing from the hypothalamus of the brain and pituitary gland that control the testis and ovary. This is in turn lowers the amount of sex hormones that are produced (estrogen and testosterone). In some people, these lower levels reduce sex drive.
Sex drive in F: It can be decreased by organic or psychogenic, organic could be from hypothyroidism, or adrenal gland or pituitary galnd insuffeciency, or estrogen hormone defeciency, psychological from depression or secondary to medication like antidepressive meds as ssri and other medications are culprits too.See 1 more doctor answer
Wellbutrin (bupropion): Again, wellbutrin (bupropion) is a good antidepressant that's not likely to cause weight gain -- and it's also unassociated with sexual dysfunction. In fact some doctors have prescribed it along with other antidepressants in hopes of countering ssri-related sexual dysfunction. Watch the alcohol you're drinking for both of these potential effects, though. Discuss with your own physician.See 1 more doctor answer

Yes.: In men the testicles produce more then 90% of testosterone, which is the hormone for sex drive, and sexual features in men, with an injury, that production can decline. Also, the the penis and associated structures are located in the same area. So, an injury can lead to swelling of the urethra which can block outflow of urine. If this is a problem, get into your primary care provider.
Can chlamydia cause low sex drive? I'm a woman and have been experiencing some symptoms (thick white discharge, bleeding after sex, etc.) that lead me to believe I may have chlamydia. Is it possible that low sex drive could also be a symptom?
If: If you are having thick white discharge and bleeding after sex then you may very well have an std like chlamydia or even a yeast or bacterial infection. You need to be evaluated by a doctor for testing and treatment. If you do have an std your partner (s) need to be treated as well. Please use condoms to protect yourself against std's. Chlamydia does not affect your sex drive, but having a thick white discharge and bleeding with sex definitely will. Please seek care.
No: But the reason one is prescribed this medication may. It is a mineralicorticoid. Although it is a steroid it is not sex steroid and thus would not affect sexual drive. But the conditions we use it to treat (adrenal insufficiency, orthostatic hypotension) may be a reason for low sex drive, esp adrenal insufficiency). Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R
