This has happened at the worst time ever since my husbands drive has decreased to almost non-existing.
i'm not sure what to do at this point, most of my friends has already gone through menopause and has no interest in sex which makes me wonder if I'll lose my drive once I go through menopause as well, can you help with this?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It's important to have an open communication with your partner and let him know how you feel.  When a woman goes through menopause it may produce a lower libido, vaginal dryness and discomfort during intercourse.  It's very important to discuss this with his doctor.  There are many treatments out there that might work for him.

Best,

Daisy
