I am 24 years old women that wants sex all the time, I can never seem to be pleasured anymore no matter how many times I have sex with my husband (which is usually one every two months) or just masterbate. And even then I want it again the next day or within the next 12 hours after. I am afraid that I am gunna ruin my marriage by wanting it all the time and the fact that I have major mood swings all the time. Is there anyway that I can fix any of this? I don't wanna lose my husband because of an over active libido or so many mood swings throughout the day. PLEASE HELP ME!

It seems like your "over-active" libido is a result of only having sex once every couple of months. There's nothing wrong or irrational with wanting to be pleased more than you are and therefore resorting to masturbation. Have you talked to your husband about engaging in sex more frequently or is this not an option? It seems like the mood swings may be either hormonal or as a result of sexual frustration.

I think you would feel a lot better if you sat down with your husband and had an open and honest conversation of your feelings and sex life. He may not see the problem in having sex once every two months but he may also not realize that it is definitely affecting you.

Here's a great question regarding overactive sex drive: https://www.empowher.com/community/ask/high-sex-drive-normal-or-abnormal

Wishing you the best,

I have talked to him and it keeps happening over and over again. I don't know what to do. I don't want to ruin our marriage just because I want it all the time.

Have you considered seeing a therapist over this? Whether it's for both of you as a couple or just you alone to begin with?

It can help and is certainly worth a shot.
