  • It can be a mental thing. For me I only want it around the time that I'm ovulating or should be because my mind/body has a mental block that the only time to want sex is when you are trying to make a baby. So I have a hard time the week before and week of my period. I haven't found a way to get over it yet.

  • It's called being a mom... I was a nympho before kids... Now once every few months is more than enough for me... Your hormones do change when you have kids, it's natural. It doesn't mean there is something wrong. It means your body doesn't want more kids!

  • Even if you don't have a sex drive, let your husband have sex when he wants it. This way your marriage won't suffer because of it. I don't know how 2 make it come back, but they are advertising pills on TV

  • cont. My answer added while I was typing. The pills are now for women and supposed to help. If they work, let us all know. Good luck.
