Lou, you mention strong headaches. Whenever in my life I have had a strong headache, I have had no interest in certain pleasures.

And you mention worrying. Worrying is enough to lower libido.

My libido has gone up, but it's not the Harvoni. It's because spouse now has fewer work hours, so we have been able to spend more time together.

Why am I not worried about whether my Harvoni treatment will fail? Probably because I have had so many major diagnoses by now that I'm actually quite amazed I'm still alive!

There are people on this forum who weren't cured by previous treatments who are now cured. Moderator Lynn K failed FOUR previous treatments, but she's cured now.

Lou, if you spend your time thinking about the future, you miss the present moment, which will become the past without your having experienced it. My wish for you is that you will "tune in" to ALL the pleasures of the present moment: tasty food, beautiful bird songs, a nice breeze. If you do, chances are your libido will rise, too.

For cleary my question, I want to know any side effects, because this is a new medicine, and on the sheet warning means only 3 side effects... And for me there are more.
It's sure i'm thinking to my healt and the pleasure wil be after!
Bye
