Yes I'm in the same situation exactly. I'm trying some herbal drugs (testo-jack for males) which seems to help a little bit, but not exactly sure why my labido is almost nonexistant at times. It's the pain sometimes, cramping others, and probably meds too. You're not alone, that's for sure.
I know both the disease and the meds affect my hubby. He said he asked his doc about
having zero libido at times, and the doc said it's probably due to the Imuran. We've had a lot of ups and downs with this disease, especially since Feb of this year, since he hasn't been able to stay in remission without the prednisone. You enjoy the good times, and you hang tough together through the rough times.
This board really helps - it's nice to be able to talk about
this stuff with others, and read that we're not the only ones going through all the stuff UC throws at ya!
