The real challenge in answering the question does Kratom affect libido? is that the conditions people treat with Kratom ALSO affect libido. So it is hard to identify the root cause of sexual dysfunction.

Mood disorders and pain are the most common conditions people self treat with Kratom and they can both contribute to decreased libido and sexual response.

If you have an opiate history then that might contribute to lowered testosterone (look up opiate induced androgen deficiency OIAD).

I certainly had that effect from the 3 years on oxy ... oh and BTW, low testosterone also contributes to chronic pain.

So lots of reasons to be concerned about testosterone levels.

I am very glad I got my hormones re-balanced ...everything works just fine (well we are still working on the thyroid)! AND I am still taking Kratom 4 times per day. Total daily dose is around 28 grams.

danke schoen! perfect comic timing, I have been successfully cheered up.
Sending kisses Don, sorry Liz its all very friendly. I've been dragging all day. After my morning dose wore off had the worst pain flare up, headaches and then mental stress set in. Life events catching up. I am taking a mix of Red Borneo and Red Maeng da and feeling ready to rest.

I agree with Laurie, and I’m sure that to some level my own testosterone has lowered since I’ve gotten a little bit older… Is that from Creighton? I don’t think so but possibly... what I meant by sleeping in bed naked and being in bed before bedtime means that if you’re feeling a lower and libido for any reason just being naked with your partner can stir up some pretty good things and cause for some good times LOL… I don’t get the night sweats, my last dose of the day is in the evening 9 o’clock… I don’t have any bowel issues, the one thing I notice is when I’m doing my work As a plumber I sweat more than I think is common ...Kratom is partially to blame for that… But I don’t have night sweats, maybe I did a couple times when I first started taking it

Congratulations on a fresh start!

I have one male friend whom it affected his “libido” and testosterone levels quite dramatically. It was not a problem because he was in a non-intimate marriage.

Kratom helped him with many challenges and he eventually got divorced and definitely had issues with dating. He now takes a testosterone supplement (which many humans need just from aging) and uses almost zero kratom now to keep his life full of fun.

So it’s not necessarily “in your head” completely but that constant “in your head” issue is not healthy and it’s very good to know you’re trying to work on that.

You might have your dr test your testosterone levels and maybe a supplement would be helpful.

This is an awesome reply. I'm in a similar situation- we have 3 kids still living at home so we need to schedule "dates" to be together. I have had a few issues with getting and maintaining erections while on Kratom but I don't know if it's actually from the Kratom or it's in my head. I have general anxiety disorder so I would lean towards it all being in my mind- which sucks because if you lose confidence once then it can bleed in to the next time. My problem is I over think everything and am always in my head. I've started to mediate 15 minutes each day to see if it helps and I've seen some minor improvements.

Curious- when you say you sleep naked is it due to kratom related night sweats? I'm excited to get my new batch of kratom next week because I'll have not had it for 8 full days so my tolerance should be minimal and I can start over the right way. Thanks again!

Welcome to the forum,

Kratom is subjective to individually chemistries, recommendations come with a what works for me might not work for you warning.
But you are doing well so far on greens I would expand your green arsenal definitely. Rotation can revolve around the same strain color. I use a scale to dose you might consider that to help knowing exactly how much you are taking and its a great tool for the less is more theory. Its a way to visually see that you used less even in tiny amounts like 400 mg less and prove to your mind less worked.

Dosing is also very individual. Use quality of life and responsible use to guide that.

I dose Green in the morning- I rotate different ones each day I expect kratom to work 4 hours at least. On average my chosen strains last 5 to 6 hours.
I dose Reds at night. I allow the break through pain between doses but I will booster dose if I am bad or take other botanicals.

I am treating spinal arthritis, but I also benefit from the stress and anxiety relief.

Edit ** if I find anything interesting on libido I will be back with a link. This forum has knowledgeable supplement users also if any problems arise(or not ;) ) we could make great suggestions.**

I’ll start by saying that before me and my lady make Love she like to take some Kratom to boost her energy ... we have 4 kids and a busy schedule so energy is lacking and kratom helps her...

For me (38 yo dude) I found that it hasnt negatively effected my libido in any huge way, I’m tired at the end of the day socthe only time we have to be with eachother sex wise is when all the kids are asleep... which plays into it needing Toto have “intentions “ set for some romping around....

If Kratom is at all contributing to affecting libido... taper down a bit and you’ll probably find out if that’s the culprit....

I know exercise and diet , age considerations.... amount of kratom one takes all effects libido ....

So exercise, take the least amount of Kratom to get benefits from it , and ..... hahaha... pull out the lotion and rub your ladies feet and back .... and ... hahaha... my new rule is sleep naked , be in bed before bedtime ....
