Lowered sex drive and can't seem to.....finish. crohns/humira

I'm a 27yr old male and was diagnosed with crohns about 2 years ago. Just recently started the humira shot as of about 3 months ago and my desire for intimacy isn't really there like it used to be. I use to be good for at least 6 days a week now when my fiancé and I try it's quite the mission to even get me started then I won't finish. It's super frustrating for the both of us in many ways especially since we are trying for a baby. I'm not sure if it's the disease, the humira, or both...if anybody can relate or shed some light or anything please do so. We need help! Thanks in advance!

I have been on Humira for four months and had this problem. Maybe you should consult your GP.

You have or haven't had this?

I am sorry. I meant that I haven't had the problem even though I am on Humira.

Doubt it is Humira. Fatigue is part of the disease. Your body is in a constant fight. Only time I have a problem is when I haven't taken a nap and I am fatigued bad, may try taking B-12 in the morning also for a boost, it's helped me. Try napping for 2 or so hours and get refueled and see what happens. Everyone is different.
