Hi I am 24 years old and Ive been with my boyfriend for over a year now. For the last 6 months or so I have wanted nothing to do with sex. I love my boyfriend and this is the best relationship ive ever been in. I cant figure out why I have no sex drive, he has been very supportive but i think its getting frustrating for him and for me!
At the beggining of our relationship I was always up for sex, and I find him extremely attractive, but for some reason lately i feel like i try to avoid sex altogether. Its making me feel like there is something wrong with me, or with our relationship. When we do have sex i cant even last for that long becuase it will start to hurt. I know i dont have an std becuase ive been checked, it just seems like i cant get into it.
The last relationship i was in, was with a guy that was very emotionally abusive and he would guilt me into sex when i wasnt in the mood. It made me look at sex very differenly for along time, but that was over 2 years ago now and i definately felt like i had gotten over that when i started dating my current man. I also went off antidepressants about 3 or 4 months ago, i figured that would solve my problem but nothing has changed. Im going to be starting birth control in a few weeks and im scared it will get even worse. Is there anything i can do?
