No sex desire
irishf posted:
I am in menopause, 56 yrs old and have absolutely no sexual desire. I enjoy sex once it's started but I don't think about it, want it or fantasize about it. My husband on the other hand has a high sex drive and I know it makes him crazy that I could care less about sex. Is there anything I can take a female Viagra or something that would increase desire. I am considering stopping my antidepressant meds since I know that they affect my desire, but which is worse dealing with Manic Depression or no sex drive. We love each other very much but I worry about him not being fulfilled and feel very guilty about this.
Is there any help for someone like me?

Good luck,

My wife has a similar problem. She professes to enjoy sex, but like you it was just something that came to mind. We talk about it and she likes it when we do it. She's just not aware if it's been 2 days or 7 days since we last had sex. So, I started to keep track. It was easy and became part of my daily routine. And now, if it's been a week, I will be a little more forward more like "want to have some fun tonight?" and it seems to work out. I know the first reaction is "that's stupid" but if handled gently it works.
