Ways Thyroid Disease Affect Women's Sexual Health

The thyroid gland produces hormones that influence almost every cell, organ, and system in the body. Both males and females may find that their drive for intercourse or even their ability to take part is affected by popular signs of hypothyroidism, like fatigue and depression. 

However, thyroid disease can have a special impact on each intercourse as well. According to VeryWellHealth, Females with thyroid disease can experience:

1. Loss of intercourse drive: According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), decreased copulation drive is a popular symptom of an underactive thyroid.

2. Hypoactive intercourse desire disorder: The American Sexual Health Association (ASHA) defined hypoactive intercourse desire disorder as the absence of copulation fantasies and thoughts, and/or drive for or receptivity to, intercourse activity that triggers the personal distress or difficulties in her relationship. It's important to note that this is different from low intercourse drive.

3. Painful intercourse: Low levels of thyroid hormone are linked to female organ dryness, which can lead to discomfort during intercourse.
