How liver disease affects your sexual activity

If you notice that you or your partner have a passion for love, do not rush to make a diagnosis about “dried tomatoes”. Perhaps you should take a closer look – no, not to the correspondence of the beloved in his phone or likes in social networks – to the liver. It turns out that problems in the work of this body can directly affect the level of sexual activity. Details – in materialSergeya Vyalov.
The liver does not produce sex hormones, but it plays a key role in their circulation in the human body. First, the liver produces cholesterol – a building material for steroid hormones. It is through this chemical transformation that “male” testosterone and “female” estrogen are obtained. Secondly, the liver is engaged in the inactivation of hormones. Simply put, it destroys them and removes from the body. It turns out that the amount of sex hormones produced and how soon they leave the human body depends on the state of the liver. Both are important for good health and a healthy sexual attraction. Next, separately consider what happens to hormones in men and women with liver failure and how to improve the situation.

The reaction of the male body to liver problems
Hormones responsible for sexual desire and erectile function in men are called androgens. Testosterone is perhaps the most famous of androgens. If there is not enough testosterone produced in the male body, both the desire and the ability to have sex disappear at the same time, since the endocrine erectile dysfunction develops against the background of a hormone deficiency and erection problems begin.

Another situation: when testosterone is produced enough, but the liver does not destroy it in a timely manner. It would seem that nothing terrible – a lot is not enough. But if everything was so simple. Unbreakable male hormones are transformed into female. That is why in patients with cirrhosis of men we often see the chest, the size of which many women would envy. Other signs of an increased level of female hormones in the body of a man are the deposition of body fat, the disappearance of hair in places where men have it and are absent in women, rashes on the skin, and acne. And, of course, problems with sexual desire and erection.

The reaction of the female body to liver problems
A woman with liver disease can have sex, but as a rule she has no enthusiasm in this direction. The fact is that when a failure of the liver develops asthenic syndrome. It manifests itself in weakness, fatigue, physical intolerance, depressed emotional state. All these symptoms are due to a violation of detoxification, which mainly lies on the liver. Slags and toxins accumulate in the body and, figuratively speaking, pull it to the bottom.

Over time, a woman develops asthenic depression. It is resistant and not related to the degree of stress. It comes to the point that overwork causes the most simple actions – brush your teeth and wash your face in the morning. There is apathy, pessimism, a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. Often anhedonia develops – loss of the ability to experience pleasure from something. In anhedonia, the motivation for an activity that usually brings positive emotions, including sports, music, sexual activity and social interactions, is lost.

In addition, the production of the necessary female hormones is falling and the level of “alien” male hormones is growing. In case of violation of estrogen utilization, a woman faces pain and tightness in the chest, pain during menstruation. The picture emerges joyless. Naturally, in such circumstances, the issue of sex is not worth it.

How to return to normal sexual activity
Stop for a moment and look at yourself. In the flow of daily affairs, we stop paying attention to what we eat, what we drink, how much time we spend in the fresh air, what medicines and in what quantity we take. The most common liver problem in the world at the moment is non-alcoholic fatty disease. To make it appear, it is enough to eat high-calorie food and bring your waist up to 80 cm or more (for men – 94 cm or more). Abusing alcohol? You direct road to alcoholic liver disease. Illegible in medication – get a drug liver disease. With all that it implies. Including a decrease in sexual activity.
If your life has a risk factor for liver disease, it makes sense to check the condition of the organ. Donate blood for liver enzymes and make an ultrasound of the abdominal organs. At the initial stage, the liver responds well to treatment therapy.
