I am very curious about just how greatly candida takes a tole on its victims sexually. I believe I have had candida from the early age of 12. At this time I had brain fog and several other symptoms which of course, as time progressed, only got worse.
The candida ended up causing a severe hormonal imbalance in me and I feel like my sexua| struggles may be completely linked to candida. For instance, I have never been able to orgasme. Fortunately, I have been placed on Vitex (chasteberry) for a few months, and last month during my ''glowing-is this true healing?" phase, I came quite close from simply staring into the eyes of an attractive coworker! But aside from that.. despite painful fingering etc, nada.
Also, it's like I have felt separated from my sexua| identity. How? There is often little feeling down there on its own. I also, although interested in boys, as a middle school girl struggled with attraction to both sexes.
The confusing thing is that I am only attracted to men when I feel healthy and strong. It's when I feel like I'm being drowned out by die-off that I either have too much libido, no libido, and/or have a very confused sexua| identity, and personal identity to boot.
Has candida impacted any of your sexua| identities or sexua| states at all? I'm just curious to see how linked to candida my struggle may be.
