I've seen a lot about the various effects that depression can have on a person's libido. It seems that a lot of people who suffer from depression also suffer from a suppressed, lowered, or otherwise "impaired" sexual drive. A lowered libido is listed as one of the symptoms for depression in many articles that I have encountered. Questions about your sex drive are also one of the first questions you'll get when you go in for any sort of psychiatric/psychological treatment (at least everywhere that I've ever been)... I've noticed, though, that when I get depressed that I have a inverse reaction. Rather than being uninterested or hyposexual - it's like sex is almost all that I can focus on; that I am hypersexual. The only time when I'm depressed that this hasn't been the case has been when I have been put on some sort of medication that cuts or completely kills my libido. So an artificial/temporary effect due to drugs rather than a natural drop in my sex drive. I'm curious to see what experience others have with this subject - if any. Is my heightened libido during a depression unusual or is this something that others experience? So... Depression and its effects on libido - GO!!!
