I too have this problem. I went to my OB and she said she thinks it is because I'm stressed and tired. I have 5 children. I recently came to have 5. I was a single mother of 1 for 13 yrs, then I met a man who had 3 children and together we had 1. So I'm a busy mom of 5 and I work p/t. I"m tired alot and finding this blog really solidifes my anxiety about my low near non existent sex drive. I used to have sex frequently but now, I could go for weeks and not worry about it.
Its causing strain on the relationship. I had the Mirena put in this past March. Ithought, "great .. no period!!"... Not so great.. I am going to see my OB in a couple of weeks and asking her to remove it. She sent me to have my hormone levels checked, but I think it was to placate me. (I'm 39) . I will deal with heavy periods if it means that my sex drive will be "up and at 'em" sort to speak.
Did you ever get the Mirena removed??
