I have problems with my drive as well, but I think it’s more of my own issue.  I enjoy it when I get to that point but never really “want” it.  I have tried switching antidepressants and birth controls without luck.  I notice a difference when I’m not on birth control but that’s not really an option for us.  LOL  I have mentally decided that it is problems with me being self conscious because I have gained weight and don’t feel sexy anymore.

@Kristen0160:  Yeah, the weight gain definitely makes me feel less inclined to sex it up in the bedroom and wear frilly underwear and to just be amorous in general. I guess it’s more in my head though, I mean all women of all shapes and sizes can be sexy. Half of it is just confidence.

Well, I don’t have a decreased drive, far from it, but I do wonder if it’s why I’ve never been able to have an orgasm. TMI, but it just gets to a point where I feel discomfort more than anything else if he’s using fingers. I don’t feel unsatisfied since SO is amazing and I don’t know what I’m missing on the orgasm front, but I think he feels like he’s to blame sometimes. I’m also overweight by around 50 pounds, which I’m sure doesn’t help
