Anti-depressants and Libido?

Firstly I'm 19 and from the UK, I wanted to ask some friendly advice and have been too ashamed and unsure about going to the doctor about this. But I was on a course of anti-depressants just over a year ago (fluexotine?) and consequently have lost I'd say 60% of the desire i used to have for sex. It seems i have a very low sex drive :(
Im just worried it will never return to normal. When I am having sex however there is no problem, its just getting there which is the problem and wanting to have sex sometimes. I dont get regular sex seeing as my boyfriend is working away quite a bit and I'm not stressed or anything

Any doctors? Is there anything I can do/take? Will it return given time? I doesnt seem to have gotten better over the past year :/

Any advice you could give me would be great and of great reasurance

Hi Susan thanks for the reply its been good to read its not just me, and that quite a few people suffer the same. I was just worried as I hadnt taken anti depressants for about a year now i think and the problems are still there. The tablets did work well for me though, its just a shame they've got rid of my sex drive so long after Iv stopped taking them... hopefully it will get back to normal soon? I hope

I should really go to the doctor to chat about if there is anything I should do, but thanks x
