Does anyone else Dh have a low sex drive? I'm lucky if I get it once a week. I'm starting to realize that it's nothing to do with me but some kind of chemical imbalance with him but being turned down night after night does take a toll on a girl. i've never been good with rejection and now I live with it on a daily basis. I'm starting today to cook a lot healthier then I did before and maybe try some new stuff to want him to want me more. if any of you have ever dealt with this how did you get over and beyond it?

 he can talk to his doctor about getting some doses of testosterone if it's bad enough to do so.

He should go to a doctor.  It can be linked to a low testosterone level.  There are things that he can do for it.

 Once a week!!! Damn I'd kill to get it once a month!!!!! Its been almost 2 months. DH has ZERO sex drive right now. He is stressed and working long hours.

I have tried talking to him about it. It really bothers me a lot. He doesn't understand.

It could be he has too much stress or as listed above!!! Stress is a big one on low sex drive

I'm not currently dealing with it but I have. I worked with him for a long time trying to figure out what was the cause of his low sex drive and he finally admitted to me that he was depressed. So I convinced him to go to a psychiatrist and get on anti-depressants (it took awhile for me to talk him into this) and then his mood went up along with his sex drive.

Or it could just be a phase. How long has it been going on (or not going on lol)?

 I agree, he should see his dr.  I just remembered what Dr. Oz says about men, "your penis is the dipstick to your health."
