Sex Drive and Depression

Posted on May 07, 2018

Depression can take a toll on one's sex drive. Depression itself, the stress of managing it, or side effects of antidepressants can all affect libido.

On MyDepressionTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with depression, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Sex drive is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about sex drive:

Does your treatment affect your sex drive?

Does your depression cause you to have a high sex drive?

How do you find love again, when you have been depressed for so long?

Here are some question-and-answer threads about sex drive:

Do you guys mind telling me how mental illness affects your sex drives?

Can you relate?

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore?
