In brief: Yes, mixed

Used chronically, there can be sexual side effects with valium.
In one study comparing valium to xanax (alprazolam) in panic disorder, patients reported decreased libido (18.5%), increased libido (18.5%), and unspecified sexual dysfunction (7.4%). Menstrual irregularities were also reported in 18.4%.
