BPD and loss of sex drive

by therunner » Thu May 30, 2013 7:10 pm

Why would my sex drive go from extremely high to extremely low with the same person if I'm still attracted to that person?

1. Nobody knows for sure.
2. BPD (emotional dis-regulation) has lots to do with sex drive (among other drives).
3. BPD (emotional dis-regulation) has lots to do sex hormones (among other hormones).

and many other things.

Is this something new or it has been this way forever ? Gender ? Age ? Medication history ?
Share more if you feel like it, but even with full disclosure... # 1. will still remain...

Splitting?

Cause even for nons when people piss you off it can put you out of the mood, so I'd be surprised if that didn't affect people with BPD too.

Thanks for the reply. I'm 31. Female. Been in this relationship for almost 3 years and this just started happening. the relationship is actually more healthy now than ever, but now i hardly ever initiate it. My partner has not changed in anyway.

I'm not sure I can solidly connect BPD to this. I have been told by many Nons that this has also occurred with them.

I have no answer for you, on why it may be happening. But I know it's not that uncommon and happens outside the BPD community just as often as within.
Sleep is my drug….my bed is my dealer and my alarm clock is the police.

for me i'm a sociopath
and ppl notice my lack of empathy they say a little austistic (used by my ex and my father) but did a lot of research an it's defendly not autistic sociopathic and schizoid thing
i wear a mask and it takes a lot of energy and sometimes i slip
the mesk drops and they see how bored i really am
can also be that you are a little selfconciense
or did you have some bad experiences with sex
ptsd?
something in your past haunting you?
do you get bored with friends (bf/gf's)?
