Differences in the Gut Microbiome of Women With and Without Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: Case Control Study

Unread post by Brain food »

Here’s a study from China that was published this year. It gives some evidence of a microbiome connection to the level of a woman’s libido.

This could be true. I just had a full microbiome analysis and I lack ruminococcus (mentioned in article). But I also lack bifido and lacto bacterias.

There was also a recent article about how researchers at UC San Francisco were able to edit the microbiome of mice using the CRISPR gene editing technique. See below:

When you say that you lack these bacteria, are your levels lower than normal or did the test not find any of these types of bacteria?

It found some ruminococcus, it is just lower than normal range. I don't have at all many lacto and bifido strains which are in the "neuroactive bacteria" category. I mostly have just two bad types in my gut: pseudomonas and sutterella. First is associated with sibo, the last with autism.
