my boyfriend got into a pretty bad car accident 3 months ago(cuncusion, stitched) and somehow his sex drive went right out the window (not the norm for an 18yr old guy; maybe do to the knock on the head?), he still really wanted to spent time with me, telling me how much he wants to get married and have kids with me & how much he loves me, so i knew it didnt have anything to do with his feelings or me...but sex was pretty much the equvalent to playing cards in his excitement level, maybe a 5min thing 2 or 3 times a month that wasn't all together passionate to say the least for almost 3 months.up until his accident we were haveing sex about 2-3 times a week & he actually acted sexually atracted to me, like makeing "you are sexy" comments and wispering things that he wanted to do to me durring the day. i chalked it up to his wreck and thought it would get better soon. 3 months later fortunately it has gotten better and his sex drive is back fully intact thank god! i guess my guestion is, has anyone else run into or heard of this happening at least? is it normal after any trama to not be interested in sex or was it just the bump on the head? considering the issue has solved itself as far as his sex drive goes this is manly out of curiousity. i would really like to hear from other who have shared a similar experiencethanx =)
Can cuncusions impact you sex drive?
Well I can't vouch for a similar experience, but maybe it was just the massive amount of trauma that his head and brain experienced, so the brain re-routed the part of itself devoted to libido to repairing and maintaining vital functions? It sounds good, so maybe that's it! But really, that might be it, the body compensates when such things happen.
And indeed any bad stress can cause drastic reduction in sex drive.
