I am really confused lately. Ive been with my boyfriend for almost a year next month and it seems from when we first started having a thing and dating we were have lots of sex and if was all fun and games and exciting. And now its like i just dont have that sex drive anymore. Like dont get me wrong he is really good looking. We did go through a rough patch and things are starting to get better. Like he is really self consious and at the beginning he seemed really confident and everything and he became really insecure and then now is rebuilding it. But it just seems my sex drive has gone right now. And i used to be extremely sexual person. I do know for a fact though that before i used to drink a lot more then now and that may have played a huge factor but still like sex drive... right down. And its hard on the relationship.. But i dont know what to do..

There are many factors that play a role in a woman's sex drive: stress, drugs or alcohol, medications, difficulties in relationship, hormonal imbalances.

It sounds like you have been experiencing difficulties within your relationship, and it may be beneficial to talk through some of these rough patches with a counselor, who can listen to both of you work through some areas that may still be unresolved.
