Darling Husband and I havent had sex in… I don’t even remember. It has been months.
He has been so patient (he doesnt have a massive drive anyway) but lately has been trying to initiate and I keep turning him down.
The idea of sex repulses me right now. Not just with him, but in general. I have no sexual desire whatsoever. I have even tried to relight my fire by being along (if you now what I mean) and got nowhere.. I’m broken.
I haven’t had a period in months. Went to the doctor and had blood tests and am not pregnant and all my hormones are in the right ranges.
I did start dieting in January but have upped my calories since my period stopped. I’m not really sure what to do?

Could this be a side effect of your bc? Mirena has killed my drive.

I’m not on any form of BC because when I was a few years ago my sex drive was like it is now.. non existant!

@dannielle89: Did you have your thyroid checked out? I have Hashimoto’s Disease, and my period stopped all together, and I wanted zero sex also.

Mine’s pretty low, I thought it was from BC but I’ve been off for months and there’s not much change. I also am not having periods (but I have PCOS) and hypothyroidism. Not sure how they’re related but @StuporDuck: also mentioned it so i think it’s worth checking.

@MabelleBliss: Hypothyroidism slows down all body systems since the thyroid is integral in regulating metabolism. If not enough blood is circulating to all parts, some function will be a casualty of it. This is why we get cold so easily, get confused / brain fog, are constantly fatigued, among the other syptoms. Once it gets regulated and the body is functioning at its normal pace again, all that gets restored, including menstruation.
