I am a 35 yo female who is healthy, fit and happy in most aspects of my life. I have one grievance at the moment and that is with my sex life. About 4 years ago I noticed that I was becoming less and less interested in sex. At the time I was married and attributed my lack of sexual desire as creating issues in my marriage. So..I went to my GYN and asked what I could do to increase my libido and address this vaginal dryness that had crept up. At first I was told lubrication, but after being more insistent I was given a blood test. The result of the blood test found that my testosterone levels were low. I was prescribed testosterone and found after about 6 months that it really had no positive effect on my sexual desire or my vaginal dryness. My husband and I divorced for other reasons and I have become emotionally and physically healthier since. This year I have started a new relationship with someone that is very loving, openly communicative and an overall good partner for me. We have been dating now for 6 months and our sex life is compromised by my vaginal dryness. He tries to stimulate me, but my body just doesn't respond. I need to know what I can do about this problem. Has anyone experienced this before? Can anyone please offer some serious help?

B12 deficiencies can cause all your problems listed but usually a person has a lot more symptoms too, including mood and energy. Come on over to the b12 forum and look at our list of symptoms and talk to folks if you want. http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=188948&posted=1#post188948
