Kratom and its affect on your Libido vary from person to person. Some say that after taking Kratom, they noticed that there was a drop in their libido.

My brother “ChiHao” does notice a slight decrease in libido from Kratom. He was taking Kratom three times a day, every day. He was also properly rotating the Kratom strains.

The good news is that he was able to regain his libido when he started taking less frequently and giving himself days off. Instead of taking 3 times every day, he reduced it to once or twice a day for 4-5 days a week with 2 days to refresh and take a break.

The libido comeback is usually on the higher end.

My brother like to describe it as “having a raging boner” throughout the day.

I find that Kratom helps me relax, I am happy, and I notice little to no changes in my libido if anything it probably increases it. That’s also because I don’t take too much and I give myself days off from Kratom.

Also to note: Kratom is an opioid and opioid do report to have some decrease in libido.

Is It Actually The Kratom or Something Else?

I like to say that Kratom does play a small part in it, but it could be something else if someone were to exaggerate the drop in libido, it could be many other factors that makes their libido low such as:

  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Depression
  • Medication/Other Drugs
  • Diet


Hormones have a lot to say about your libido, and if your hormones are out of place then it could be the main reason why your libido is low. I would recommend for you to get your blood work checked out if you did take days off from Kratom and see no increases in libido.


If you suffer from serious depression, it could impact your body’s function along with causing imbalances in your hormones. We recommend getting professional help. Although Kratom does help with depression and should be considered.

Medication/Other Drugs:

You may be taking other types of medication or drugs that mess with your libido such as alcohol.


I believe Diet has a lot to do with libido too, and most important out of all above. If you are eating food with lots of sugar, bad fats, simple carbohydrates, and drink nothing but sweet sugary drinks, you will definitely do lots of harm to your body and hence affecting your libido. The food stores today are filled with sugar and bad fats, and most people still don’t know what they are putting into their bodies.

It’s best that you stay away from the cereal aisle all the way to the soft drinks unless it’s whole grained non-GMO oats and tuna. Stick to the vegetables, meat, fish, and eggs.


Am I A Healthy Person?

If you are a healthy person, then it could be that Kratom is having an effect on your libido, and our only solution to that is to go off Kratom for fews days or a week and see how you respond to it.

It is most likely that your libido will skyrocket and “having a raging boner” or return to normal.

So yeah, take a break from Kratom from time to time.

If you go on several forums or google “Kratom and Libido”, you’ll notice the half and half. Some people notice increases while others notice decreases.

One that’s interesting is that it helps people last longer in bed.



I personally don’t have to deal with Kratom and libido because I take Kratom around 4-5 days and giving myself 2 days off from Kratom. This resulted in no differences in my libido.

If you’re a regular user who does take large amount on a daily basis and you notice a drop in libido. Take a few days off from Kratom.
