i have only had one partner, but lately I am thinking and having sexual desires that go way beyond my husband desires. I want more sex and i want to try to more exciting positions and toys. Not just missionary positions . I have never had a sex drive. What is going on.

Hello Anonymous,

This is something that you need to discuss with your primary care physician. Though having an increased libido may seem like a very good thing, it can indicate a serious problem with your adrenal glands.

Increased libido is a symptom of familial adrenal adenoma, adrenal
gland hyperfunction, adrenal cortex diseases, adrenal cancer, hyperadrenalism and functioning pancreatic endocrine tumor.

I would be interested in what your doctor thinks is the cause.
