    If you suffer from hypothyroidism, you would experience lack of sexual desire or you just isn't stimulated to do it and, if forced, may cause some pain during sexual intercourse itself.

    Thyroid imbalance = Premature Ejaculation and all sexual dysfunctions can easily be related.

    Anxiety and depression wouldn't let you get excited....even if you do then it wont be long.

    It's all a big mess

    I had a big drop in libido before diagnosis of Hashimoto's-hypothyroidism but improved a great deal once on proper thyroid hormone replacement. I still do not see the level of libido I had before thyroid disease and I find when extra tired or stressed this can affect me in this area more-so than pre-disease. I do feel women with treated hypothyroidism are affected more in this area than are men who are treated.

    Would something like viagra help to stimulate the desire while you are being treated or does it counteract with drugs?

    Viagra is always seen as a cure or miracle, but really it is just a stimulant with side effects so watch the addiction.

    Well having fun with Viagra is better than having nothing

    I think a lot of symptoms go away once on the right medication and dosage but like Jim said, it's never the same again
