Let's get straight to the point of (sex)

So I have just started treatment of adalimumab and let's just say I seem to have lost feeling in my female bits. I feel like I had the same problem when on azathioprine. Has anyone else experienced anything like this really do not want to bring this up to my Dr. I am not on any antidepressants

  1. I never lost feeling but definitely my sex drive disappeared when I was on Azathioprine. -Elizabeth (team member)

    1. Some drugs may bring down your sex drive. Best to bring it up to the Dr. I was on methotrexate before my ileostomy a month ago, and it brought my sex drive down quite a bit. They effect us all differently.

      1. I've had a full hysterectomy and I am on vedolizamub fortnightly. And I have no sensation down below at all I'm willing just not able at all, penetration or feeling wise. It's a complete nightmare, totally frustrated 🥴

        1. Hi . Your frustration is certainly understandable. I did not find any research on vedolizumab and sexual function, but that absolutely does not mean there could not be a connection (my search is by no means exhaustive). There is research noting that a side effect of hysterectomy can be loss of sexual response (see:,all%20be%20seen%20post%2Dhysterectomy.) Has your doctor had any thoughts on potential causes and treatments? Hoping you can get some answers soon. Best, Richard (Team Member)
