Absolutely no sex drive. My fiance went through about 1 1/2 years of depression. She drowned it with alcohol to the point that it caused alcoholic hepatitis. She was in the hospital for 16 days 2 months ago. She has started recovering and her liver we believe is regenerating. My question is this... She has had very little interest in sex for well over a year and since the hospital visit zero interest. She says its not me, she is just numb down there. She hasn\\\\\\\'t had a consistent period in over a year. Her depression seems to have gone as she seems happy most of the time, she is dressing up and looking nice and getting out of the house. Our relationship is now more of roommates than lovers. Can this be caused by hormonal imbalance because of liver disease and no period for over 6 months?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
There can be hormonal imbalances associated along with lack of ovulation (no periods). She should consider visiting a gynecologist for further evaluation especially for lack of periods/absent periods. Appropriate investigations done would reveal the cause for absent periods and loss of sex drive. Treatment as appropriate will be started to help her regain her sexual drive and regulate periods.
All the best. Take care.
