my boyfriend has low libido

Ok, so honestly I used to want sex ALL THE TIME. but I would literally have to convince my boyfriend to join me. Sometimes he has a week where he's good to go whenever, but that's pretty much only twice a year. I've recently gone on the pill so that has affected my libido some. We're almost on the same page as to how often we want sex. But he doesn't like to hug or cuddle and it I do. I know I'm so fortunate to have him in my life but I feel like we just aren't connecting physically. We have talked about this, and I have told him how I feel but it doesn't seem to help or change anything. Is there anything else I can do to make our physical connection stronger and our sex lives coordinate better?

Hi hedgehog1,

Welcome back! I just replied on your previous post about your chances of being pregnant.  If you are having problems with your relationship you might want to avoid having unprotected intercourse like you stated on your previous post. You might want to discuss with him your worries and seek counseling together.  If he does have a low libido, he can have his hormones level checked through blood work. He will need to see his doctor to have this done. There is treatment for men that have low libido. Hope this was helpful?
