Hello there, I've posted a few times before here. So I guess I technically don't have Crohn's, as far as my new GI is concerned. But I do have general IBD. I haven't had a major flare up in over a year so that's great. I was on Entocort for almost a year and ever since have struggled with depression and anxiety and a lack of sex drive. I just can't communicate with people anymore. I used to be really easy to get along with, now I get angry at every little thing. I'm the type of person I would have hated before, basically haha. I used to have a great sex drive, but not anymore (which sucks because having a girlfriend would make me a lot happier...but we all know how important sex is to a relationship, especially one that's just starting out). Anyway, I've been on Bupropion, an anti-depressant, for about half a year now. I've noticed some small differences, mainly in that I can enjoy some of the things I used to be interested in again, but nothing too major. I've read that steroids can, don't know how to word this, but confuse your body on how to produce testosterone naturally? Do you think it's a lack of testosterone? How many of you have dealt with the sex drive thing and how did you deal with it?

Thanks in advance,
25 years old. Diagnosed almost two years ago. Currently on Entocort and Asacol. I guess i have a 'mild' case. Haha.
