Thyroid Disorders and Impairment in Sex Life

key information

source: Clinical Thyroidology

year: 2019

summary/abstract:

Thyroid disorders (hypothyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroid cancer) have been linked to a reduced quality of life in some clinical studies. Even fewer studies have looked at the effect of thyroid disorders on sexual function. To date, a few small studies have reported impaired sexual function in women with thyroid problems and in individuals with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Only a single small study has examined the effect of nodular goiter on sexual function. This study examined how common impaired sex life was noted in a survey of patients with thyroid disorders.
