Im 43. Been in a relationship for 7 yrs. He knew from the beginning sex was important. At first we would have sex everyday sometimes 2xs a day. I knew he had medical issues but he always found ulternatives. But now .. No. May 1x a month maybe every other ..im so frustrated. Ive thought about cheating. But in reality i know i couldnt go through it. We fight atleast 1x a week over it and now im just really tired.

Hello. Thank you for posting.

Visit your doctor and ask about medications that might lower your sex drive. Your options will vary depending on your medical history, but there are multiple pills you can be prescribed to help you win the battle against an overactive sex drive.

According to LiveStrong - Other things you can try:
Soy has been proven to reduce testosterone levels, which will, in turn, reduce libido.
Eat a low-fat diet. Cutting back on fats, particularly saturated fats--will help bring your sex drive down.
Stay away from animal proteins. The proteins and hormones found in meats like beef, chicken, pork, and turkey can contribute to high testosterone levels.
