Ok.... so I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery in March of 2015,, so almost 5 years ago. So have any of you “old timers”. The women on here,, had a problem of having a TOTAL LOSS of sex drive??? I never lost the desire to eat! I have always been hungry from day 1! So with that being said I think the doctor removed my sex hormones instead of my hunger hormones!! Does that make sense? Thank you!!

First question... How old are you? I had my Lapband at 42 and by 44ish... my sex drive went through the roof. Did it start when you got WLS? Are has it just started? I'm now 51 and i could still go every day. I started menopause about a year ago and found it's not as "intense" as it was. But i still have the desire.

Most of the time (not all) people become more sexual after WLS.

There were definitely time spans like this, yes. However, I always attributed it to being stressed and tired from work.

I never thought about it, but yes I did lose my drive after my VBG. I also have some other issues such as I am in menopause for 2 years now ( I am 54) and have never had a hot flash and I don't have hair under my arms. so something hormonal is in the works. Weird how the body works!

I would think it would be hormonal rather than a side effect of WLS. If anything, I think the WLS would make one's sex drive higher, since better self-esteem and confidence comes with losing weight, and that helps bring the sexy back!

I don't know your age, could you be going through menopause? I didn't have any loss of sex drive and I'm 55.

I am 42 years old and will be 43 in June. This has been for sometime and it is really depressing to me! Yes I have thought that I am going through menopause because they say that having the gastric surgery that it can send your body into early menopause. I just don’t know what to do?!?!?!😢

Talk to your gynecologist. He/she might suggest hormone replacement therapy. That should help with your sex drive!

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
