Okay so I have been vegan since January and my husband has been 90% vegan and then went 100% vegan about two months ago. We have been married for 6 years and have three children. He has an outstanding job that he is very happy with and I am thrilled to be at home with the kids and I have an extremely part time job as youth director for our church - SO my point is that all is very well in our lives but we have noticed since becoming vegan we have no sex drive - either of us! It has never been an issue. I am questioning the role of veganism in this because I know sex drive is tied to testosterone (partly) and that meat contributes to the mix in someway by affecting testosterone (more aggressive tend to be meat eaters). Anywho any ideas about this are welcome!
For myself and my husband it was the opposite, but not immediately. Ours improved dramatically over time.
Some veggie foods can affect your hormones if you eat too much of them. We use almond and rice milks instead of soy, for instance. We don't avoid all soy, but don't rely too heavily on it either.Maybe there is a particular food (such as soy) that you are over consuming?
I've heard that a lack of zinc and/or protein can cause a low sex drive. Zinc is found primarily in legumes and nuts, but many whole grains and beans can actually interfere with zinc absorption. Maybe consider taking a supplement or multi-vitamin and see if it makes a difference? Good luck to you guys!
We often neglect what we eat and that let towards the changes inside the body and some times it effect the pleasure life also. But for all those who are facing such problem many products are available which boost the stamina and change your mood. These products are very affective with no side effects.
