I’m a bit embarrassed to discuss this but over the last 2 weeks i seem to have lost my sex drive which is otherwise normal. I would normally be quite open to being intimate but lately when my husband touches me it makes me feel disgusting and i want to push him away. Hugs & kisses are fine and i have no issues with him! I don’t know why this would be happening.

  • I hope things have improved. It’s normal to experience ups and downs. Things like stress and fatigue can impact it. Also if I’ve had an argument with my hubby I don’t feel like being intimate. Sometimes you have to push yourself to get things started and then you find you get into it

  • I am exactly the same at the moment. It is absolutely nothing to do with hubby, I love getting hugs and kisses but the thought of being intimate is not on my radar. I know for me alot of it is my self image, i am definitely more self-conscious about my body at the moment. After having my second child i am having a much harder time exercising and the tummy bothers me.

  • Its only been a short time so I wouldn’t be worried. Sex drive can go up and down depending on lots of things so more than likely its just a phase.

  • If it’s only two weeks, I wouldn’t worry. It could be so many minor things (like tiredness) or even just worrying about ths!

  • This just sounds like me. I just put it down to my age and health issues and always being tired. Maybe speak to you GP

  • Is it something related to the covid-19 virus maybe and the stress that’s causing at the moment

  • What else is going on in your life? It’s most likely bring affected by outside influences. New home? New baby? Hubby pissing you off? Have a think about it
