Everything used to be fine. We would have sex at least 3 times a week. Sometimes 3 times a day! But for the past few months, I have absolutely no sex drive. Don't get me wrong, I like sex. It feels amazing. But I'm just not horny! I have no interest in doing it and I have no idea why.
I feel guilty sometimes because my guy is a big horn dog. He always wants sex. Now he's lucky to get it once a week.
There are a few things that could be causing my low libido.
Before we started having sex, I was diagnosed with PCOS - Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It's a hormonal imbalance that can cause all sorts of problems in my downstairs area. And because of this I have to be on some sort of estrogen for the rest of my life. So I've been taking Yasmin for the past two years. I've read online that having PCOS can cause a low sex drive and being on the pill can cause a low sex drive, too. GREAT! I'm double screwed. But I've been dealing with both of those things for two years and I never really noticed it effecting my sex life.
Another thing... I've been going through a hard time dealing with my family. My parents are very old fashioned and don't agree with anything I do and don't support me in any of my decisions. And lately that's really been getting to me. I break down crying all the time for no reason. So I wonder if this is has something to do my situation.
And finally, sometimes sex just hurts. It didn't at first, but like I said, things have been different the past few months. But it's getting to the point where I'm almost afraid of having sex. It doesn't hurt every time. And the times it doesn't hurt, it's really good. I'm not the kind of girl who can just grin and bear it to make her man happy. When it hurts, it hurts! I don't want to continue for the next hour in this pain, so we stop and I usually give him head.
With all this said... I'm not sure if my lack of libido is mental, or if there is actually something wrong with me on the inside. My fiance and I are getting married in a few weeks and I'm afraid this could effect our marriage.
Have any of you been through something like this before? Got any advice?
