#sexdrivestories OH SHIT, WHERE DID MY SEX DRIVE GO?

This is an extract of a great post by Miss Jezebella (check out her blog, it’s fab) on having polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and the impact on her sex drive.

*Guest post*

I’ve got Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS, for some background see this post). I’ve only had an official diagnosis of PCOS for 4 months now. The symptoms have been around since I hit puberty; excessive body and facial hair, irregular and often absent periods, really high sex drive. That last one is important to me. My sex drive. It has shaped my personality and life. It is such a big part of me I don’t know who I am without it. But I’m about to find out.

I want to have a baby (for some background on that have a read of this and this). The doctor who diagnosed me with PCOS told me I was obese and needed to lose weight before I could get pregnant. She told me that with weight loss my PCOS symptoms could decrease. She told me I couldn’t eat any carbs or sugars, because they would make me fat. She said some diet plans say I can eat carbs, but I shouldn’t listen to them because my body is different, and I can’t eat carbs.

So like a good patient, and someone who is serious about this whole conception thing, I dutifully started my diet. I haven’t eaten any high carb or sugary food since.
