User :   Hi. I am a 23 year old woman who has always had a really high sex drive, even from the age of two. I would usually masturbate at least once a day. 2 years ago, at the age of 21, out of nowhere I lost my sex drive. I have masturbated maybe 10 times maximum since then. The year I lost my sex drive, I also grew 5 centimetres out of nowhere (went from 145cm to 150cm- I had not grown since I was 10), my hips widened and breasts became larger. I also put on a significant amount of weight (went from 50kgs to currently 62kgs). These all occurred (including weight gain)after the loss of sex drive. I went to my local doctor once and she gave me a hormone test but nothing was said of it. I figured it may be my hormones as I have a hormone imbalance (I take the contraceptive pill Levlen, and have since I was 16, because when I menstruate I become violently ill and constantly vomit due to high levels of testosterone). Could you please tell me whether there may be a change within my body that has caused this or is it that I just need to lose weight? Could you pleae also give me tips on boosting my metabolism and losing weight. I know this can be linked to depression but I have not really been depressed. I was more depressed before this. This also all occurred after the last time I had sex. I haven't had sex since, mostly due to I haven't dated much as been too busy with studies etcetera. Thanks.
