Will thyroid surgery affect my sex life? If so, how and for how long?

Patients may return to their sexual activities whenever they feel up to it. However, a thyroid hormone imbalance could affect a patient’s sex drive. If a patient’s thyroid hormone level is too low or too high, then their sex drive could possibly be affected.

It can sometimes take a little time to get a patient’s thyroid hormone level sorted out and balanced, so they will feel normal again. For most patients, this is done in a reasonable time.
