Where or where has my sex drive gone?

My hubby and I have been married 7 years now. This is my second marriage. We used to have wonderful, amazing sex, now I could do without it. After the kids are in the bed and it's time for bed, I would rather read. I used to love sex and it was so good between us. I wanted it every day. It started a long time ago before my third child was conceived. If I can let myself get into it...it is still amazing. I can't figure out what happened to me. What do you think is wrong with me?

  • Honey, it happens to everyone. It's call, raising a family and your body changes. It's normal. Kids really do change everything.

  • I really wish I could just love it and enjoy it like before. I miss it but just don't want to anymoe. I haven't told my husband I am afraid he will go elsewhere. But as for me I really wish it could be like it was before when I really loved it and wanted to all the time. I wonder why it changed.

  • I'm in the same boat. I've been with my SO for 7 years. I love having sex and would even describe myself as a nympho. But lately, I haven't even had the desire. We went a week without it and I had to really work at it to get into it.


    I think it is just "LIFE". Everyday life gets in the way of living, sometimes.

  • could be hormones. could be you're in a rut. Great sex is 80% or more mental. Get that mental pumped up and ride that wild stallion! Be aggressive. Dress up like Xena Princess Warrior and throw him down and have your way with him! Woo HOO!!!!!

  • Fake it until you feel it. Seriously. You need to re-train your body and brain, and the only way to do that is to get down and dirty regularly.

  • Sounds like hormones.. Talk to your GYN.. Sometimes they can give you a but of a jump start to help in that direction.
